Miranda Lambert hopes to make her husband Blake Shelton sweat with her new gig on The Voice. Miranda has signed on as a mentor for Shakira‘s team starting Monday night, and Miranda always gives her husband a hard time for breaking out in a sweat when he’s around the Colombian bombshell.
“If he does, like, a duet with her or whatever, he’s sweating,” Miranda says. “I’m like, ‘Now, you’ve got me and Shakira. You’d better sweat when I’m around now!'”
Shakira approached Miranda about joining her team, but they hadn’t met until they taped the mentoring sessions. Miranda quickly grew to respect Shakira’s artistry, business sense and her deep vocabulary.
Miranda explains, “Her English is so scattered, but when she says stuff, she says such big words. I’m like, ‘I don’t even know that word in English. How do you?'”
The Band Perry starts mentoring Blake’s team this week on The Voice, airing tonight at 8 ET on NBC.
