The iconic singing reality show 'The Voice' is back with a bang on NBC. The first episode of Season 22 aired on September 19, 2022, at 8 PM ET. While the competition showcases the finest of singers and performers each year, no season ever passes free of controversy.

It so happened during the episode, Blake Shelton tried to throw the new coach Camila Cabello off balance and wanted to prove his competitiveness. The singer tried to catch Camila off guard by trying to intimidate her. Blake deliberately tried to make fun of Camila Cabello's ensemble outfit for the first day. She wore a black dress with a puffy-sleeved blouse underneath and accessorized the look with a pink flower at the neck of her top.

After Camila told Blake about her talk with the cameraman about strategies to win the show, Blake sarcastically asked, "Is it your puffy sleeves? Is that a pirate shirt?" Camila took it sportingly and exclaimed, “Arghh!”. However, Blake went a step further and added, "Does your flower squirt? Is it a squirty flower?"

But he soon realized he had crossed a line and said, "Sounds weird when I say it like that. Almost inappropriate, disgusting." Camila felt uncomfortable too and quickly told him, "That’s what I was gonna say. Very inappropriate."
