The show judge tells AOL’s The Boot, “I didn’t pick anybody that I felt like I had to teach to sing…The singing thing, they pretty much all have down. I want to be a friend to these people on my team and let them know that I’m on their side, and I want to help them with their song choices and the keys that they sing their songs in and how they approach being on stage. Ultimately, and even the ones that aren’t on my team anymore that I can’t talk about, keeping in touch with them and being sure that they have my phone number and they can call me anytime.”

Shelton certainly understands the pressure that the contestants are going through as well. He reveals, “I understand the position they’re in is a tough one. I couldn’t have been a brand-new artist that had never really performed in front of that many people and all of a sudden standing on stage in front of a huge studio audience, plus millions of people watching at home, and not had a panic attack. It’s a lot of pressure they’re under. My thing is letting them know that they have a friend, and they have somebody that will fight for them and be in their corner and pull strings and favors for them when they need it. That’s as important in this business as anything.”
