‘The Voice’ Star Blake Shelton Gives Hilarious Reason Why He Didn’t Invite Adam Levine to His Wedding

by Madison Miller

If you’re a longtime fan of “The Voice,” you have to at least partially miss the love-hate relationship of coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

From the hilarious jabs at each other from two red chairs over, funny Twitter insults, to adorable bear hugs and sweetly cuddling on the red chair. It was a bromance for the history books and had a massive impact on “The Voice.”

Blake Shelton’s Reason Not Inviting ‘The Voice’ Friend

With what appeared to be a strong love between the country star and the pop-rock artist, did Adam Levine’s wedding invitation just get lost in the mail?

Shelton tied the knot with Gwen Stefani on July 30. The couple had a very small and intimate ceremony with only about 30 people in attendance. It was held at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch. Several of Shelton’s celebrity friends, including Levine, were not included on the guest list.

During a recent interview with Ellen Degeneres, Shelton said that the talk show host was to blame for Levine’s absence from the ceremony. “That’s the reason we didn’t invite to him to the wedding, is that interview he did on your show … I purposely did not invite Adam Levine to my wedding and I think it’s funny,” Shelton jokingly said at the time, according to “Today.”

So, what is Shelton specifically referencing?

Adam Levine showed up on the talk show back in April. He spoke a little about his buddy Blake tying the knot soon with Gwen Stefani. “I don’t support their marriage. She’s so cool, and he’s not … I’ll go to the wedding, and I’ll object. I will probably not be invited, now that I’m saying this on live television, but I’ll be there, somehow,” Levine said at the time.

It seemed like Shelton one-upped his friend by not even shooting him an invitation. It feels eerily like old “The Voice” days full of bickering, but mostly a lot of unspoken love. It’s a signature part of the duo’s feuding ways.

Final Weeks of ‘The Voice’

This past Monday night was huge for “The Voice.” It was the contestants’ last chance to perform and earn their way to the Finals next week.

The eight contestants will be cut down to five instead.

Country artist Blake Shelton is going into the week with the most artists still alive in the competition. He has three artists — Lana Scott, Wendy Moten, and Paris Winningham. Moten, a favorite to win the show, got huge praise last night.

She performed Marvin Gaye and Tammy Terrell’s “You’re All I Need to Get By.” The coaches gave her a standing ovation. “Are you out of your mind? That’s just the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Ariana Grande said while bowing down.
