It appears as if country superstar Blake Shelton has taken his role as coach for NBC’s “The Voice” as a personal calling. Hollywood heartthrob James Van Der Beek told sources that the country crooner not only transformed an otherwise average post-CMT Awards party into a full-blown karaokefest, but personally doled out advice and encouragement to the participants, Van Der Beek included.
“I was handing off a drink, a song came on that I’d never heard before and a microphone was handed to me,” Van Der Beek told People Magazine. “Then Blake Shelton was coaching me through it note by note and I was on a table!”
The actor was humble enough, however, not to claim victory in the pseudo-competition. That honor went to Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley, who transported those in attendance back to 1995 with his rendition of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” “He was amazing!” the actor told People. He also gave a little insight into the karaoke preferences of Nashville superstars. “When country stars karaoke, they don’t sing country.”
Sounds like an awesome party and we here at Karaoke Cloud wish we could have been there to see it for ourselves, but getting a firsthand account from James Van Der Beek runs a pretty close second. Thank you, James! Any final details you can give us?
