During a press conference kicking off season five of NBC's "The Voice," a reporter noted that Blake Shelton's mom, Dorothy, who is currently promoting her Christmas book, "Time for Me to Come Home," had mentioned his childhood participation in pageants, something the other judges, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and show host Carson Daly all delighted in teasing him about.
"I think I may have won, like, the evening wear," Blake joked, before Carson asked, "What was your talent?" Adam joined in asking, "Did you sing?" Blake, however, said, "We know it wasn't singing," then added, "I've seen the pictures and I think that's one of those things that I've blocked out of my memory. But people keep bringing it up in public! I'm sure that mom has a video that she'll sell for a pretty penny."
