The Voice Coaches Talk Smack, Strategy Backstage at Live Rehearsals (VIDEO)

The Voice LIVE SHOWS begin tonight, at last! In anticipation of the new phase of The Voice competition, Blake Shelton and Christina Augilera sit down for an interview backstage on the first day of live show rehearsals.

Blake does his usual hilarious trash talking of his fellow coaches, “I don’t take Adam that seriously. The guy has ink poisoning that probably affects his equilibrium and ability to make decisions quickly. Cee Lo probably isn’t even from earth!”

He also talked about how he came to ask contestant, Gwen Sebastian, to join him on tour as a background singer. “I can’t imagine being out on the road with out her,” he says of the new addition to his road family.

Christina talks about her team and how everyone “each and everyone of my teamates packs a secret power punch that’s all their own.”

We’ll be live blogging The Voice live shows tonight at 8/7c

     So it´s gonna be Blake and Christina´s teams tonight and results tomorrow? And then.
    Adam´s and Ceelo´s teams next Monday plus the results the Tuesday after I believe. Right? Makes sense. 2 hours for 12 contestants.

    Woohoo! Go Xtina! She is such a diva it is great. I am really loving her this season on the voice. She seems to be taking it more seriously and is doing a great job, IMO. Also, can I just say that when she covers up and is dressed classy, she is stunningly beautiful.
