As if Blake Shelton could not become any more entertaining, we now have this news — the country music star is going to be working with Michael Buble on season 3 of “The Voice.” Buble will be filling a role held by Kelly Clarkson last year, and she is now in competition with the series courtesy of the low-rated (but still present) “Duets.”
Anyone who has seen a Buble concert or any of his appearances on “Saturday Night Live” knows that he is more than just a talented singer — he is also a guy with a great personality and a sense of humor who can try to make light of any situation. We can already see him strongly competing with Adam Levine in the “bromance” category (with apologies to Blake, since we know he hates that word), though Buble is not going to be around nearly as much as the Maroon 5 frontman.
The rest of the advisers for season 3 (which premieres in September) have yet to be announced, and it’s unclear if they are going to include the likes of some of the people we saw last year like Lionel Richie, Ne-Yo, or Alanis Morissette. Regardless of who signs on to help out on the show, the good news is that it seems as though we are winners regardless. Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera are now reportedly getting along far better than they were during much of season 2, and the hope here with that is that it will produce a season with less drama when it comes to criticism, and every one of the contestants will be on a level playing field when it comes to fan support. (In reality, Blake may always still have an edge since country voters tend to band together better than any other group out there.)
Do you like the idea of a touch of Buble on “The Voice”?
