The first round of The Battles is in full force on "The Voice," and some of the coaches have already taken tough losses. In a web exclusive that NBC is sharing first with TODAY.com, superstars Usher and Blake Shelton have an honest chat about some of the heartbreaks and regrets they've experienced so far.
But as the men share their stories, Shelton's BFF and fellow "Voice" coach Adam Levine flops over the back of the couch and cuddles with the country superstar, turning the serious discussion to something more fun.
"Hey, Ush, thank you for those two rad singers, man!" the Maroon 5 frontman teases. During last week's Battles, Levine stole contestants Jake Barker and Brittnee Camelle from the R&B star.
"Hopefully you go all the way to the end, knowing it all started with me," Usher shoots back.
But Shelton wasn't going to let his friend off the hook without a little bit of ribbing from himself. "Hey, that kid you got, Jake. Are you going to put him with *NSYNC as a reunion deal and have him cover for Justin Timberlake?" he rags while the rocker gets comfy using the country singer's lap as a pillow.
"I'm not sure why you keep making the same joke over and over again, but I don't think that's a joke," Levine points out from his prone position. "Is that a joke or are you serious? Because it's actually a great idea!"
Can't get enough of the hilarious bromance? Tune in to "The Voice" every Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
