Blake Shelton, Adam Levine Are Men in Black in ‘The Voice’ Season 11 Promo
In just over a month, The Voice will return with two brand new coaches: Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys. Leading up to the Season 11 premiere, NBC has released a 60-second promo that views like a Hollywood blockbuster.
The clip starts out with static radio frequency with "Location: Earth" being typed on the screen. Then, suspenseful music shows road closures and destruction as shots of The Voice logo appear with the arrival date of Sept. 19 shown.
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are seen as secret agents donned in suits and sunglasses, a la Men in Black. The returning coaches look very serious as the screen pans to the set of the reality television competition. Later, in what appears to be an outtake, Levine and Shelton are all smiles and laughing at each other.
While rumors swirled earlier this year of Shelton leaving the show, fans can rest easy — he and Levine will likely never leave their coaching duties on The Voice. Several representatives for NBC talked about Shelton and Levine’s success with viewers over 11 cycles of the popular television reality singing competition at the summer Television Critics Association press tour session on Aug. 2.
“They love doing the show and they love the paycheck,” NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt joked.
Shelton addressed rumors that he was leaving the show in May during an interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on Today.
“I’ve heard many rumors that I’ve been fired,” Shelton admitted, adding, “I don’t plan on going anywhere. I’d like to stay there as long as I can. Of course I’m going to stay there!”
