Cher joined Team Blake for The Voice as a mentor, and the two stars spoke to ET’s Rob Marciano about the show and their working relationship.
It is obvious the two got on like a house on fire, Cher and Blake Shelton told Rob that they’ve been on the same accord with most of the contestants that they’ve seen and became friends rather quickly. In fact, they’ve been getting along so well that Blake wants Cher to join the judges’ panel permanently.
“I have no doubt you’d be good at it,” he said,
Blake also explained that his dad was a massive Cher fan. Blake’s father has since passed, however Blake recounts his first meeting with Cher at an awards ceremony.
“I’m trying to host the show and my phone’s back there buzzing like, ‘I’ll be damned … You’ve made it now. Cher said your name,’” said Blake who called those text messages the most excitement he’d ever seen from his father.
While Blake shared the same stage with Cher, could a duet between them be in the works?
“I can do that!” said Cher. “You just heard what a great country singer I am.”
The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
