It’s true, The voice coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Ariana Grande are competitive with each other. But at the same time, everyone recognizes the incredible talent of their fellow coaches.
A great example when people recently got a taste of the late-night host Jimmy Fallon‘s upcoming music and comedy game show that’s my jam, which officially premieres on January 3. For the first episode of the new NBC series, The voice coaches split into two teams — Kelly/John and Blake/Ariana — to battle it out onstage with their incredible vocal skills.
Before a winning team was named, however, Kelly and Ariana faced off in the final round in a Mixtape Medley Showdown that was all about pop divas. The two vocalists took turns going back and forth singing hit songs from Britney Spears, Cher, and Celine Dion among other things. It looked like it was going to be a close bond until Kelly started showing off Whitney Houston‘I will always love you’.
Although Ariana had also sung one of the late artist’s songs “How Will I Know”, she immediately stopped playing when she heard Kelly. After appearing as if she didn’t know what to do with herself, Ariana threw up and hands began to walk off the stage in apparent shock. Watch the clip above every 3:33 minute to see it for yourself.
In the end, Kelly and John were declared the winners of the showdown. That said, people watching the moment on YouTube thought they were both champions.
“Kelly was fantastic. Ariana was fantastic. Their harmonies were fantastic. I need more of this!” one person wrote. “We knew they were great before, but THIS is just breathtaking,” added another. “I can’t get enough of watching this. Beautiful, Kelly and Ariana!! ❤️❤️❤️”, said another fan.
We couldn’t agree more! And despite not winning, it was clear from her fangirling that Ariana had no hard feelings. These two sure know how to put on an epic performance!
