Kelly Clarkson is poking fun at Blake Shelton after The Voice Twitter account referred to him as “The King Of Country.”

On September 14, 2020, The Voice posted on their Twitter a video with Blake and the rest of the crew. They captioned the video saying, “The King of Country is BACK… and he’s the reigning champ.”

Kelly jokingly replied to the tweet saying, I must have missed George Strait in this video #justkidding.”


Kelly was surprised to see Blake being referred to as “The King Of Country” because most all country fans refer to the one and only George Strait as “The King Of Country.”

Many fans rallied behind her, agreeing with her statement saying, “Everyone knows that George Strait is the King!”


The Voice  responded to Kelly’s rebuttal and all the fans stating George Strait is the one and only “King Of Country” by replying, “Several points were made, but @blakeshelton will always be our king.”

Season 19 of The Voice premieres on October 19, 2020. Judges and coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend are all back for this epic season!

The show will look a bit different this season due to the current status of the world, but the coaches have been able to find ways to interact with their artists while at a safe distance.

As seen in a preview of this season, Gwen welcomes one artist to her team during the blind auditions by launching a t-shirt at him with a t-shirt cannon. “I got a present for you but because we’re social distancing, I’m going to launch it at you. You ready?” she says. The launcher fails to go far enough to get the t-shirt to the artist, but Blake is quick to spring into action and assist his girlfriend Gwen in completing the task.
