Shelton, the show’s winningest coach and longtime jokester with his fellow coaches, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (February 27). The pair talked about Kimmel giving Shelton a flame-thrower, Shelton kicking off new tour dates (the “Back To The Honky Tonk Tour” with Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean), and, of course, his final season of the smash-hit NBC competition show, among other conversation topics.
“Kelly finally got me fired. I wanted to announce that here, on the show. Kelly Clarkson actually got me fired,” Shelton joked, as Kimmel brought up his upcoming exit from The Voice. “NBC stands for ‘Nothing But Clarkson.’ …She’s on every late night show, she’s got the daytime show…”
Shelton announced in October that he would end his time on The Voice after “wrestling” with the decision for a while. He said in a statement at that time, in part: “This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me. ...I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson (Daly) and every single ons of my fellow coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani!”
I love the comedy with this guy, don't you? Not to mention his wonderful repour' with his co-workers! Do you think he'll be the winning coach in his final season?
