While Mike Tyson was butchering the lyrics to “Hotline Bling,” Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were doing what could have been Drake’s first number one solo single the right way. And by the right way, I mean the way that you and I sing and dance to it alone in our rooms – separately, of course. No, I’m not in your closet.
Gwen and Blake joined fellow The Voice judges Adam Levine and Pharrell on The Tonight Show last night for a go at “Spin the Microphone” with Jimmy Fallon. After a totally bummed-out version of Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again” by Adam, Gwen and Blake were prompted to do a joint rendition of “Hotline.”
Watch it here at the time mark, and look at Gwen’s face when Pharrell suggests that she sing with Blake. There is literally no way that Blake could have said no to her.
Okay, so Blake didn’t do a whole lot other than say the word “bling” a few times, but I’m gonna go ahead and say that Gwen nailed it. She is actually all of us in the mirror holding our hairbrushes while body-rolling the song away. Bless up, queen.
Another A+ moment: “You know Drake, right?” Jimmy asked Blake. I die.
