The Voice season 14 blind auditions have come to a close, and all four coaches – Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, and newbie Kelly Clarkson – have filled the spots on their respective teams and are ready to battle. But it’s not just the contestants that have the internet talking. Instead, it’s a constant feature that has been on the show since day one that has fans asking questions. Everyone wants to know, what is Shelton sipping on while filming the popular reality singing competition? What is in his cup?
Shelton joked Levine has crack in his cup, before finally disclosing his own secret. “I have vodka. I drink vodka on the show,” admitted Shelton. “And I don’t care if you like it or if anybody likes it, that’s what I drink so get over it.”
Shelton’s love of vodka shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans since he partnered with Smithworks Vodka last summer. At the time, he said several alcohol brands had approached him in the past, but none of them was the perfect match until Smithworks came along.
He explained that he wanted a brand that felt authentic to him, and since he was able to get involved with the Smithworks brand in its infancy, he had a lot of input when it came to packaging and taste, which was important to him. He wanted it to be a vodka that he knew he would drink and want his friends to drink as well.
As fans know, Shelton does love to drink.
The country music superstar added that although his drink of choice is vodka, he is always sure to add a little lemon-lime soda because it is refreshing. But, he made it clear that he doesn’t add too much because he doesn’t want it to outshine the vodka.
In the latest episode of The Voice, all of the judges rounded out their teams, with Shelton adding teenager Dallas Caroline who sang the Willie Nelson classic Always On My Mind.
All the judges with spots remaining on their teams – Shelton, Levine, and Clarkson – turned their chairs for Caroline, and after saying that the experience was crazy, and a dream come true, Caroline chose to be a part of Team Shelton.
A satisfied Shelton said that Caroline had a pure, sweet-sounding voice, and even though he already had a great team, she was the icing on the cake.
New episodes of The Voice, starring Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, and Alicia Keys, air Monday nights on NBC or anytime on the NBC app.
