If you're a fan of The Voice, then you might have caught the latest episode where Jimmy Fallon made a surprise appearance. The talk show host decided to put his vocal cords to the test by conducting his own blind audition on the show. And boy, was it hilarious!

Jimmy took to the stage and belted out I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near), stunning Kelly Clarkson and Niall Horan, who immediately turned around upon hearing his voice. But it was Chance the Rapper who stole the show with his scream of shock as Jimmy danced around on stage. As Jimmy approached the end of the song, Blake Shelton still hadn't turned around. So, what did Jimmy do? He walked up to Blake's chair and pressed the red button for him! LOL. Naturally, Blake protested that he couldn't do that since it went against the rules. "It didn't take me long to figure out that it was Jimmy Fallon," said Blake later. "And there was no way I was gonna hit my button, he does not deserve the chair turn on this show. Jimmy's impersonation is equivalent to walking up to Michael McDonald and slapping him in the face as hard as you can."

But don't worry; despite being pranked by Jimmy, Blake remains a good sport about it all. In fact, he even revealed that he wants to expand his one-man band with his fellow coaches and call it Different Directions - a nod towards Niall Horan's former band, One Direction. Season 23 of The Voice sees two new coaches join in - Horan and Chance - who both agree that joining the show feels like going to camp for them. "You get here on your first day like, 'Oh, I don't know everybody.' Within a couple of days, you're all a big family," said Chance.

Meanwhile, Kelly Clarkson is excited to be back after taking last season off. "You forget how much you love helping people become their best version musically," she said. Blake also shared how much he missed having Kelly around so much so, that he constantly asked if he could be a guest on her talk show but got turned down every time. Poor Blake! All in all, we're glad Jimmy Fallon made an appearance on The Voice because we got some good laughs out of it!
