Blake Shelton loves putting his country twang into classic rock songs. Please see for examples: his Elvis and Eagles covers. 

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

And during a Voice season finale in 2012, Shelton did a grand performance of the rock anthem "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" by Aerosmith, adding his own cowboy twist to the tune. The performance started out with Shelton gripping the microphone while standing in the middle of an eager crowd, while Artist Terry McDermott joined him.

Shelton was also accompanied by then-Coach Adam Levine on electric guitar! Iconic is the only way to describe this performance, which you can watch here. 

Shelton, a longtime Coach on The Voice, announced in October 2022 that he's leaving the show after 23 seasons. 

“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23,” Shelton said in a statement. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people; you are the best."

He continued, "It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow Coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani! I have to give a huge shoutout to the singers–the ‘Voices,’ who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent, and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their Coach. Lastly, it’s about y’all, the fans, who watch and support these Artists, us Coaches, and everyone at The Voice who are chasing their dreams. It would not happen without you!"

Shelton's last season finale of The Voice airs Tuesday, May 23. Tune in to see if an Artist from his team takes everything home, upping his total wins to double-digits: 10!
