When Blake Shelton announced that music superstar Bette Midler would join “The Voice” as a Team Blake mentor, country music fans knew that the two would serve as a powerhouse of advice and guidance to all of this year’s contestants.
They also knew they would be hysterical together.
And in a digital exclusive on “The Voice” YouTube page, Blake and Bette show off their instant chemistry as they meet their talented team members for the very first time.
“I begged for Bette Midler to be my mentor,” explains Blake. “She’s one of my favorite people ever and I love for her to be here, and I can’t think of anybody who knows more about the entertainment industry than her.”
“I thought you wanted me because I swear,” laughs Bette.
The hilarity continues as the two coach the new contestants to prepare them for the upcoming battle rounds. “I flash my man boobs all the time to the girls,” Blake tells contestant Preston James as they discuss his shirt buttons, as Bette laughs in the background.
“I was really glad I said yes to be on Blake’s team and that you asked for me because you are really a hoot,” Bette tells Blake. “You are a driver of the fun.”
“And Adam’s in the car seat in the back seat,” Blake chimes back.
