>> you know who stevie wonder is, right?
>> i do. i've performed with him. you're about to drop some names.
>> blake , that hurt my feelings.
>> i'm sorry. i'm sorry.
>> it's about you. it's about you right now.
>> i still have a man crush on you, though.
>> wow, you seem to have sexual tension with pretty much anybody. don't you?
>> it's palpable.
>> this is my moment. you ask the questions. i'm just going to listen.
>> enjoy. how is the new season going, blake is this.
>> yeah, how is it?
>> are you kidding me? we're all back together again. so i love that.
>> did you say love?
>> i love that.
>> okay, good. just listening.
>> she just likes to watch your lips move.
>> how big are my lips? your lips move, my god --
>> i've been drinking since 7:00, so they're a little blurred, if you know what i'm saying.
>> so is it fun to have the whole group back together, you, christina, c. lo and adam? it seems to fit. i like that group.
>> the four of us started the thing together, you know. there's still that -- i mean, we just fell right back into that thing again.
>> yeah, you did.
>> and we love each other and we're very competitive.
>> in a healthy way, in a good way.
>> in a good way. we really don't give a crap about the other people's performances. we're only about ourselves when it comes to that.
>> you know what? i admire your honesty. i really do. it's rare. rare.
>> you won --
>> you can say it.
>> every one except one.
>> and i'm still not sure --
>> you should have won that one.
>> that's legally --
>> why don't they all pick you?
>> in other words why don't they go with the winner?
>> why are they going with the other coaches?
>> well, i mean, what would you do?
>> i would be gracious and kind and pray for everybody.
>> so, you're not very honest, are you? i don't know. i just have fun. i just have fun on the show. maybe that's why --
>> it works.
>> some of those artists come with me. they know they're not going to be -- i'm probably going to be drunk and passed out during rehearsals anyway and they're like, i can do whatever i want.
>> you're going to be a blast.
>> you have to meet someone. i can't wait anymore. let's see. where is he?
>> come here. come here. oh, come here!
>> this is a moment.
>> oh, my gosh.
>> this is really live, happening on tv, meeting. like one of those reunion things where you find a lost family member.
>> i know.
>> how are you doing, blake ?
>> there's even more sexual tension now.
>> now that's just weird.
>> what do you think of him?
>> i love him. i've seen so many pictures of him, i feel like i know him.
>> he's smelling you.
>> give him here. give him here.
>> he's smelling you. oh, you are a cute dog. yes, you are.
>> do you like that? oh, my god.
>> a ton of dogs at home with your wife, don't you?
>> oh, yeah. in fact, my wife just got another dog like three days ago.
>> another rescue?
>> another rescue.
>> what kind?
>> i don't know. i don't know what it is. nobody knows . it's a puppy.
>> how many do you have?
>> i think that's like five or six dogs that we have now.
>> are you fostering them or do you keep them?
>> i wish to god we were fostering them, but they have long-term like lifetime fostering.
>> what's going on here? what is going on here?
>> see, he needs a man in his life, hodie.
>> oh, my gosh. we're going to take a couple of fan questions. we have people downstairs who want to ask you some things with brittany.
>> blake , carrie wants to know what song you like to perform live.
>> i really like "lick it up" by kiss. i guess "old red" and "boys around here."
>> let's do the chorus. wait a minute.
>> you don't even know your own lyrics.
>> how does it go? those boys around here drinkin' that ice cold beer talkin' about girls talkin' about trucks red dirt roads kickin' up dust
>> trucks and dust don't rhyme. don't take no spit chewin' tobacco zblrchls chewin' tobacco spit
>> that was a great i hoda song, too.
>> yes, it was brit. what else do we have?
>> have you ever chosen someone that you wondered why you picked them after?
>> and name names, if you're so honest.
>> no, i haven't.
>> there you go.
>> i mean, there's people that -- we all meet people and eventually wonder why we ever hung out with them, you know what i mean ?
>> wonder what we liked about them the first time around. what was that? how could i have been so wrong?
>> you seemed so cool -- but i don't know. i'm sure that's happened in the show. honestly, when you get down to those last three or four, you've gotten so you're such a cheerleader and you've gotten so attached to them, i haven't had a problem with any of those final people.
>> but a lot of people don't have the stamina that it takes to be a winner. they might be able to give one great performance but they don't have the range in terms of -- to go on.
>> we have time for one more question downstairs. oh, you want to spin the bottle? sorry, brit. we don't have time. you want to spin the bottle? get over there.
>> that will work.
>> what does this mean?
>> can you grab that? thank you, baby. that means there's a question from me on the back.
>> this will take forever.
>> no, hoda will read it. beer or hard liquor, box ers or brief briefs, adam or miranda.
