Blake Shelton Amused by ‘The Voice’ Winning a 2011 Teen Choice Award
Blake Shelton is an avid tweeter, so it’s no surprise that he took to the messaging service to voice his “pleasure” about his show ‘The Voice’ winning a 2011 Teen Choice Award last night. The show snatched the win for Choice TV: Breakout Show from the hands of scripted shows like ‘The Hard Times of RJ Berger,’ ‘The Nine Lives of Chloe King,’ ‘Raising Hope’ and ‘The Walking Dead.’
It’s an impressive feat for the show, which will begin its much-anticipated second season in February, with Shelton once again taking his seat in the big, highbacked, red space chair and taking on the role of mentor to an aspiring vocalist.
Shelton, with his trademark sense of humor, tweeted: “Ha! Worst role models ever!” when he was congratulated on the win on Twitter.
Blake, we love you and all, but we don’t think that you and your fellow coaches were being recognized as role models with the show winning this illustrious award. It was probably the show’s feel-good premise about a singer’s voice being the sole quality on which they are judged that made ‘The Voice’ worthy of breakout status and of winning the award over several other quality shows.
However, the chemistry between Shelton and the other three judges was certainly one of the factors that kept viewers tuning in each week, pushing the reality competition show’s ratings into the stratosphere.
Congrats to the producers, the cast and the coaches of ‘The Voice’ for pulling off a 2011 Teen Choice Awards win.
