The Voice’s Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert to Perform Oklahoma Tribute on May 21, 2013
As Americans mourn the fatalities in the wake of the May 20 tornado that ravaged the state of Oklahoma, The Voice family prepares for a live results show tonight. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t affected by the tragedy. Coach Blake Shelton is from Oklahoma, as are his duo, The Swon Brothers, and host Carson Daly asked them about the safety of their families throughout last night’s live shows. The catastrophic event occurred only a few hours before the show went live, giving them little time to pay tribute.
So tonight, Blake and his wife Miranda Lambert will sing a duet dedicated to their home state. Entertainment Weekly reports that the song will be performed at the start of the show, which airs at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
