Blake Shelton Fights Over ‘The Voice’ of Betty White in Super Bowl 2012 Commercial
What’s the reason for tuning in to the Super Bowl, other than football? The commercials, of course.
Well, country fans were in for a double treat during Sunday’s game. Not only were they able to watch Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton belt out ‘America the Beautiful’ prior to kickoff, but they also caught the comical commercial for the new season of ‘The Voice,’ starring all four celebrity coaches — Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green.
In the commercial, the four coaches hear “the voice” of a woman coming from upstairs at a posh hotel. As Aguilera makes her way up the staircase in the lobby, Shelton lassos the blond bombshell to make his way up the stairs, only to be cut off and punched across the room by Levine. Levine, of course, is then blocked by Green.
As the four stars enter the hotel suite where the singing is coming from, the woman is revealed: Betty White steps out of the bathroom, wearing a white robe. “It’s about time somebody wanted me for my voice … and not my body,” White says, as the coaches stand there, shocked at what they see.
The commercial was a last minute teaser for the viewers who are sitting on the edge of their seats for the game to wrap so thatthey can tune in for the season premiere of ‘The Voice’ on NBC.
