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

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 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!)
