The Voice is showcasing an emotional tribute for tornado victims in tonight’s live episode.
Contestant coach and country artist Blake Shelton and his wife, singer Miranda Lambert, will perform a duet dedicated to their home state of Oklahoma. The song will be performed at the top of the show, which gets underway at 9 p.m. ET. NBC isn’t releasing the song’s title, but we’re told it’s a tune that’s “close to their hearts.” The performance will be accompanied by an on-screen number for American Red Cross donations.
NBC’s The Voice recap was scheduled as a lead-in to the live show at 8 p.m. but will be pre-empted tonight. Instead, the broadcaster will run an NBC News special covering the tragedy hosted by Brian Williams live from Oklahoma.
Monday night’s Voice addressed the disaster, as well. Shelton expressed his feelings about the headlines and The Swon Brothers (who are from Oklahoma) imparted well-wishes too, along with host Carson Daly and Christina Milian giving call-outs for viewers to donate to the Red Cross.
