Blake Shelton Looks Ahead To Future After 'The Voice'

Blake Shelton has opened up about his future plans, including the release of a new album and marriage to his fiancée Gwen Stefani.

The country superstar joined Hoda Kotb as a surprise co-host of on NBC's "Today With Hoda & Jenna" show in the absence of regular anchor Jenna Bush.

Shelton said he and the pop superstar will tie the knot "hopefully this summer."

"Now, I think we're right here at the point with COVID, it looks like it may be okay, but I don't know. So that's tentatively the plan," he said. "I'm afraid if she and I wait until next November, then I'm right back into 'The Voice' cycle again. And I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after."

Shelton also hinted that he may leave the popular music reality show "The Voice," on which he has spent a decade after joining as a coach on its premiere.

"I hope that's not too far down the road. Ten years sounds like way too long to me. I'd like to see that sooner than later," he said. "I mean, we both pretty much taken it to the limit as far as our careers go and touring and now the television thing. It's been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things. But, hopefully, at some point, we get a chance to live some life."

Shelton also told Kotb that his new album, Body Language, will be released on May 21.

Kelly Clarkson Reveals The One Song She's 'Afraid To Cover'

Singer-songwriter and television personality Kelly Clarkson has revealed the one song that she is afraid to cover.

The 38-year-old, who rose to fame by performing cover songs on the first-ever season of "American Idol" and continues to put out covers of her favorites on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" in a segment known as "Kellyoke," surprised fans by admitting that there is one song that she will likely never cover.

Having brought in Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi to be an advisor to the contestants on the show "The Voice," on which she is one of the coaches, Clarkson confessed to the singer that she is too afraid to cover his 2019 hit song, "Despactio."

"I have practiced so hard, because I love singing in Spanish as well, or just in different languages," she said. "And it's, like, the biggest song of all time. You're kind of like, 'You know what? I'm gonna leave that alone,'" to which Fonsi naturally responded with "Oh, come on, you have to cover it now!"
