Blake Shelton pulled out all his tricks to win a singer on The Voice and joked even about the death of an imaginary cat.
Shelton knew he was in his head recently at Celia Babini's blind audition. It was clear that he would not be her first choice, and he opted for a humorous appeal to the emotions after Adam Levine had praised her convincingly.
"I'd like to refer back to it, my cat died today," Shelton said a few awkward laughs. "That could really help lighten my day."
Assistant coach Kelly Clarkson agreed and said, "He does not even have a cat!"
When asked about the cat's name, Clarkson jokingly interrupted his fictional cat "Sandy." Shelton then leaned in with the singer of "because of you" more violently in the direction.
"You've met Sandy!" Shelton said. "You know, Sandy, that's right, you knew Sandy!"
The request was unsuccessful, and Babini joined Levine's team. Shelton, however, still referred to "Sandy" online and confused some of his fans with the thought that he had actually lost a real pet.

"I dedicate today's episode of @nbcthevoice to my beloved cat" Sandy, "wrote Shelton." She was the light of my life. The yin in my yang. And she hated @adamlevine … We had a lot in common. "
The fans of the" Ol & # 39; Red "singers expressed their condolences that they were mourning the loss of a pet.

"I hope you feel better Cowboy, I'm so sorry for your cat!" A fan wrote. "RIP Love To The Cowboy!"
Another wrote: "Aaawww Rip Babe.Blake Shelton I'm sure [your] The cat is right next to it and looks at you The Voice … we love you meow."
Country Living indicates that Shelton seems to have a cat named Dave based on Instagram posts. However, it is quite clear that Sandy was pure imagination.
The Voice will be broadcast on Mondays at 20:00. ET to NBC.
