Blake Shelton Sang His Hit "Home" With Usher—And Their Voices Are Magic Together

The former The Voice Coach's tones contrasted perfectly during the performance. 

By Jackie Manno

Who knew that Blake Shelton's country twang and Usher's smooth vocal tone would go perfectly together?

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

When the two were Coaches on The Voice in 2013, they joined forces for an emotional performance of a song called "Home," originally penned by Michael Bublé and famously revamped by Shelton for his album Purse BS.

The performance started off with Shelton strumming his guitar, before Usher started his signature crooning, and the two harmonized beautifully at the chorus. 

"Is there anyone cooler than Usher?" Shelton then asked the cheering crowd of Oklahomans. (There clearly isn't!)

Originally released off Bublé's 2005 album It's Time, "Home" reached the number-one position on the U.S. Billboard Adult Contemporary charts. The lyrics tell the story of someone missing their partner while traveling.

That year, Shelton and Buble performed the song together at a concert in Las Vegas.

"Home" by Michael Bublé/Blake Shelton lyrics

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I've been keeping all the letters
That I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
I'm fine baby, how are you?

I would send them but I know
That it's just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another airplane
Another sunny place
I'm lucky I know
But I wanna go home
I've got to go home

Let me go home
I'm just too far
From where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like
I'm living someone else's life
It's like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right

And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
This was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day
Has come and gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I'm surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
And I wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I've had my run
Baby, I'm done
I'm coming home
Let me go home
It'll all be all right
I'll be home tonight
I'm coming back home
