Kelly Clarkson Beats Blake Shelton in Song Lyric Game With Gwen Stefani Tune


Potentially one of the best parts about Blake Shelton being a coach on The Voice (outside of helping the contestants of course) is his relationships with the other coaches. He's constantly entertaining even after Adam Levine left the series and never ceases to bring the laughs even after 20 seasons. And that's the case on and off the set of the NBC competition show. In a recent episode of Coach Kelly Clarkson's talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, all of 'The Voice' coaches came together and it was just as entertaining as you'd think it would be...not to mention it gets heated with a little competition.

In the episode, the coaches were divided into two teams to compete in a song lyric game, "Throw Me A Line." It was John Legend and Kelly Clarkson vs Nick Jonas and Blake Shelton. It became a battle of the sexes...if Nick and Blake won, the men in the audience would get a prize. If John and Kellly won, a prize went to the women in addition to Kelly replacing Blake's photo on Blake Shelton's Wall of Champions. The wall featured photos of numerous celebrities including Demi Lovato, Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stefani, and more.

You got mini live performances when the coaches guessed the different songs since they would sing along with the lyrics listed. From The Jackson 5's "ABC" to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," the songs were all over the place. The teams were tied and it came down to one final tiebreaker to quickly guess what song the lyrics on the screen belonged to.

Well, sorry Gwen Stefani but apparently your fiance isn't as familiar with your music as he should be. Kelly immediately beat Blake to guessing "A few times I've been around that track / So it's not just gonna happen like that" belonged to Stefani's hit song from 2004 (not to mention the memorable music video) "Hollaback Girl" and his reaction was hilarious. The song was at the top of the billboards for weeks after being released on Stefani's debut album...everyone knows that song, it was a staple on pop playlists for years!

Shaking his head the superstar is clearly entertained by how pleased Kelly is with guessing the song before him. The Texas native even guessed Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" before Blake. Come on man, we know you know all the Nashville legends!
