A quick thought on why I love Blake Shelton  
I am so thankful for The Voice because it introduced me to Blake Shelton and I f'in love him. I love his music, I love his sense of humor, I love his long, lean form, ahem. And I also love the fact that he is SO DAMN TEAM BLAKE! When all of the coaches came out to perform with their teams, the other three highlighted themselves with a few moments to spotlight their contestants. Not Blake, nope. His contestants BEGAN the number, and Blake came in 3/4s of the way, making the spotlight on THEM, not him.

And, both Blake and Adam Levine performed their stuff tonight. Adam, his new single featuring Christina, and Blake his #1 "Honey Bee." And at the end of Blake's song, he brought the two girls from his team out on stage to finish the song off with him, giving them EXTRA time in the spotlight, and then gave a shout-out to their names. I. love. him.

"Honey Bee" is the best song ever. I don't watch The Voice, but I've loved Blake since he first came on the scene 10 years ago with his first song "Austin." If you need any recommendations, I'd be happy to point you in the right direction.

Oh, I have every song he's ever done now. I've watched all his videos, I follow him on Twitter; LOVE HIM! I wouldn't recommend The Voice for itself, but if you're a fan of Blake, oh my, it's wonderful. Seriously, I had never heard of the dude (not sure how, since I do follow enough country artists, and like Miranda Lambert), but after a few nights with him, I was in love. Everything I've heard since then just makes me love him more. He's my #3 celebrity crush right now. :)

My favorite song by him is "She Wouldn't Be Gone" and "Baby" tears me up, and "Playboys of the Southwestern World" and "Some Beach" cracks my shit up (the video for the latter is pure gold).

"She Wouldn't Be Gone" is a GREAT song. My other personal fave is "Ol' Red," and that video is totally awesome too.

I really love his cover of "Goodbye Time" (an old Conway Twitty song). And he's so adorable. When he first came on the scene, he had the Billy Ray mullet, but ever since he cut his hair, he's gotten about 1000x hotter.

I was this close to listing "Ol Red," but I didn't. Great song (and video though). He's SOOOOO hot now.

Yup, they got down to the top 8. Results are supposed to be tomorrow night (but President Obama is giving a speech, so it may be pre-empted).

Gah. I'll catch up tomorrow, then.

I think Blake is a nice guy. And he's got the voice. I wish I liked country music, though. At least a little bit. Because I cannot stand it. I am physically in pain when I hear it, and tonight was no exception. lol. Also, shout out or not, he absolutely drowned out his girls. You couldn't hear them at all over his voice. Not his fault, he's got a boomer of a voice that should never ever sing duets. :)

Having said that, I like how he takes care of his team and champions them. He has taken the coaching very seriously. Still can't stand his singing, but since the show isn't about the coaches, really, I'm okay with that. :)
