It’s no secret that America is smitten with The Voice Season 4 coach Shakira. And so are her co-stars Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Despite the fact that Shak was six months pregnant during the taping of the blind auditions, the boys were still drooling over her (and her hips that don’t lie).

And Blake and Adam have found a special way to get a hug out of Shakira that might explain why they press their buttons so much this season.

“So Adam and I figured out something,” Blake told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. “‘Hey man, anytime you freaking see Shakira hit that button, I’m hitting my button too.’ Then you’re like, ‘Oh, if I was you, I’d go with Shakira’ because then you get the Shakira hug.”

Oh you’re a sly devil, Blake Shelton.

Wonder what Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert, would have to say about these secret hugs? Careful, Blake. She is the one who sings about “Gunpowder and Lead”!

Are you surprised that Blake tricks Shakira into giving him hugs? Watch the interview and tell us below!
