Hoda takes over 'The Voice' stage! Her top 7 moments

May 5, 2014 at 3:48 PM ET

Hoda Kotb, who is arguably one of "The Voice"'s craziest fans, got to take over the show's big stage on Monday for TODAY.  

She was up early (5 a.m. on the West Coast) to test out Shakira's chair, outfitted in her stylish curlers, slippers and holding a morning drink. (Grape juice, Hoda?)

"I am in heaven," she gushed to Savannah Guthrie in a pre-show tease.

Her pal Billy Bush from Access Hollywood Live filled in for Kathie Lee. "This is a dream come true for you," he said.

Billy joked that it had taken some time to pry Hoda away from her music crush Blake Shelton's dressing room. As you can see, Hoda couldn't keep her hands off him. 

Hoda scored the first interview with the show's new coaches for the fall, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, who was still in shock over her new gig.


During commercial breaks, Hoda is usually busy prepping for the next segment. But there was too much excitement for that today!

She and Billy got some hug love from David Walton, who is starring in the NBC sitcom "About A Boy."

And if you wondered whether Hoda found out her Spanx were showing on-air, she did, and it'll probably happen again!
