Blake Shelton Turns Into a Muppet When ‘Sesame Street’ Spoofs ‘The Voice’
If you know anything at all about Blake Shelton, you’re probably aware that the country crooner makes a lot of jokes. But thanks to a spoof of ‘The Voice‘ on ‘Sesame Street,’ Shelton is playing the fool this time. The short clip is made for a young audience, but we think it’s pretty hilarious for adults, too. Seeing the ‘Over’ hitmaker as a Muppet is just what the doctor ordered.
In the ‘Sesame Street’ version of ‘The Voice,’ host Carson Daly, along with coaches Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, are made into puppets. We’re probably biased, but Shelton is definitely the cutest marionette, mostly thanks to his beard and tiny suit jacket. In the clip, Daly introduces the three judges before the first contestant comes on stage.
While a purple puppet tap dances, Shelton, Green and Aguilera gush about how great his voice sounds. When the three coaches turn their chairs around, they learn the the puppet wasn’t using his voice at all. The trio of judges — sans Adam Levine, for some reason — are surprised to find that you can make noise with other parts of your body, too.
While ‘Sesame Street’ is poking a bit of fun at Shelton and his hit NBC reality series, the clip is a great way for kids to learn about making sounds with other parts of their bodies. We’re talking about clapping, tapping and snapping fingers — remember, this video is for kids!
