Video: Blake Shelton appears this morning on “Today,” tonight on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to talk up “The Voice”
The three-night Season 3 premiere of the hit reality TV show “The Voice” starts up tonight on NBC, and Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton, one of the four celebrity coaches on the show, appeared this morning on “Today” to talk up the singing competition.
“I think season three, it really does trump both the first two seasons,” the Ada native said on “Today.” “I mean, for so many different reasons. There’s been a lot of rule changes, and the coaches, we’ve all kind of had our fights and got back together again. … It seems like it’s made us, as a group, that much tighter. We all have each other’s backs when it’s time to, and we’re stabbing each other in the back when it’s time to also.”
“The Voice” will debut from 7 to 9 tonight, but it will be just the beginning of a three-night premiere. Even more blind auditions will air from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday on the peacock network. To learn about some of the intriguing changes promised for Season 3 of the show, click here.
Shelton – whose finalist, Jermaine Paul, won the second season of the singing contest – also will appear tonight on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to talk about “The Voice.” Jimmy Fallon’s show airs at 11:37 p.m. weekdays on NBC (KFOR-4 in Oklahoma City).
Oklahoma music fans will have another great reason to tune in to Fallon tonight: Tulsa native St. Vincent and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne will perform on the show. Their collaborative album “Love This Giant” is due out Tuesday.
