Blake Shelton is pulling double duty, y’all.
“The Voice” coach and, you know, country superstar is set to be the host and musical guest — and, according to Cecily Strong, the entire cast — of “Saturday Night Live” on Jan. 24. Considering that he is a complete jokester on “The Voice,” hosting “SNL” likely won’t be too big of a leap for him.
To show off his comedic talent, in the above promos, Shelton states his case for why he should be host (until Strong swivels around in her chair a la “The Voice”) and disses Strong’s fake country accent, but mostly, he just insults Adam Levine.
“That guy is such a punk,” says Shelton. “I actually have a message for you right now, Adam. ‘Hey, Adam — look who’s hosting ‘SNL’ now, pretty boy. Hot shot, you silly mother–‘”
Unfortunately for Shelton, he can’t complete the insult because he’s informed cursing isn’t allowed. Dagnabbit.
