When Blake Shelton retires from The Voice after subsequent season, he’ll be the present’s longest-running coach ever with 23 seasons beneath his belt. With a distinction like that, he deserves to take house a souvenir from the set of The Voice when he lastly hangs up his teaching hat — however Shelton jokes that the present runners won’t see it that manner.
“I am positive they’re gonna say, ‘Properly, the one factor you took was a number of our cash, so you need to be pleased with that,'” he tells People.
But when the nation star has his manner, there shall be at the very least yet another factor in his suitcase when he packs as much as go away his last episode.
“I really feel like they owe me a rattling chair, although,” he continues.
After all, the chair Shelton has in thoughts is the long-lasting pink “I Need You” chair he sat in for all these seasons — the one along with his buzzers, and the one which swivels round when he decides to show for a contestant throughout a blind audition. Not solely has Shelton spent all these episodes in that chair, however he even made some improvements to the design throughout his time on the present: It was partly his enthusiasm, and the drinks he at all times has on set, that impressed The Voice so as to add cupholders to the teaching chairs once they redesigned them in 2015.
“I imply, who else can sit in my chair?” Shelton continues. “It is just like the three bears — I do not need anyone else sitting in my chair. I am gonna attempt to get that away from them. Possibly I will have to purchase it or one thing.”
However pushback from the present itself is not the one hurdle the singer will face in his quest to convey his teaching chair house with him: He is additionally going to have to speak his spouse, pop star and frequent The Voice coach Gwen Stefani, into the concept.
With its cherry-red leather-based and flashy, tricked-out swivel design, the chair is certain to conflict with all of the furnishings Stefani has picked out for the house they share in Oklahoma — however Shelton’s bought a comeback to quiet his spouse’s objections.
“Properly, that does not matter as a result of it constructed the house, so it deserves a spot,” he jokingly provides.
