Looks like Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande’s rivalry is continuing over on The Voice. During Monday’s episode, both Blake and Kelly Clarkson wanted singer Jeremy Rosado on their team—and Blake asked for Ariana’s support. Buuut she went ahead and chose Team Kelly, telling Jeremy “You have so many really special parts of your voice. And I think Kelly might be able to help you.” She added, “I do think Kelly might be the right fit in this case,” saying to Blake, “I’m sorry.”
Blake was clearly not thrilled, telling Ari “it’s on now” and saying to cameras “I can’t believe Ariana just did that. That’s a slap in the face. The friendship is over.” He then interrupted Ariana’s on-camera interview, saying “You stabbed me in the back. I was right there on the edge of the cliff, and you pushed me off.”
As a reminder, Ariana is killing it on The Voice, and there are even (false) reports that producers want to replace Blake with someone younger because of Ari’s popularity. Turns out Blake straight-up sent Ariana an article about these rumors headlined “Producers at ‘The Voice’ May Replace Blake Shelton After Ariana Grande Brings a ‘Fresh’ Energy,” and added “Thanks a lot Ari… Thanks a fuckin’ lot.”
Doubt Blake Shelton is going anywhere anytime soon considering a) his whole good-natured rivalry with Ariana is a ratings goldmine, and b) he’s been on The Voice since day one, soooo!
