How to Watch

Blake Shelton has delivered many jaw-dropping performances in his time. The beloved Coach of The Voice has a magnetic stage presence that fans can't get enough of, and he's proven time and time again that he can turn just about any classic song into a bonafide country favorite. Case in point: Shelton and Season 16 Voice Artist Gyth Rigdon's wild and wonderful rendition of The Eagles' "Take It Easy."

The Season 16 Artists on The Voice brought their all each night, with Team Blake's Rigdon progressing to the Top 4 Live Finale. Rigdon became the runner-up of Season 16 after rocking out with his Coach for a final smashing set. Their mutual country roots radiated throughout their performance of "Take It Easy." Watch the incredible performance here, because it's one of the best Coach performances of all time! Is there anything Shelton can't sing?

On May 12, Shelton will be honored for his prolific music career by earning a star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony will shine a light on his many achievements and his respected red chair tenure on The Voice. Befittingly, the Host of The Voice Carson Daly and Shelton's wife, Gwen Stefani, will appear to speak volumes about the country king. Fans can stream the ceremony live on walkoffame.com to watch Shelton cross yet another impressive milestone off his list.

“Blake Shelton is one of the music and television world’s most popular entertainers," Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said in a statement. "He keeps The Voice audiences in stitches with his witty banter, and he has captured many fans’ hearts with his soulful country voice. To think that he began his career at the age of 17 is amazing. We are proud to have him join the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

With so many legendary performances behind him, Shelton's Walk of Fame induction couldn't be more deserved.
