Carson Daly sarcastically jokes about Blake Shelton
Carson returned to NBC's morning show 'Today' after taking a small hiatus to support his best friend and co-star Shelton during 'The Voice' finale on the West Coast. However, during the latest episode, Carson opened up about Shelton's final episode and his big send-off from the show. Carson notably made a few sarcastic comments about Shelton's retirement. The host jokingly said, "We'll start today with Blake Shelton. More with Blake?" He added, "Don’t you have enough press, cowboy?!"
The cameras then switched as Carson shared a sweet clip from 'The Voice' finale of him surprising Blake with a hilarious gift. Carson said, "And just like any other coach when it's time to walk away from the game, throw in the towel, pack it in, and call it a day, we commemorate this big moment like any other great American athlete."
Carson added, "Buddy, it is time to retire the Blake Shelton Jean Jacket." The camera then gave a closer look at his jacket hanging up on the wall, with his name, 'The Voice', and the seasons he'd won all written on it. However, soon after the clip played, Carson returned with some more brutal jokes. 'The Voice' host said, "He's so old he kept telling me in that moment, he’s like, 'What? Where is it? I can't see it.' He couldn’t see it!" However, Carson's troll didn't stop there only. He further said Shelton was the goat of the singing show, "but not the greatest of all time but more like the goat, the animal."
