Blake Shelton: 'George Clooney Has Heard Of Me?!?'

Blake Shelton found out from Access Hollywood on Tuesday night that George Clooney has seen him as a coach on “The Voice.”

“George Clooney has heard of me? That’s shocking within itself, so the fact that he likes me is even more shocking,” Blake told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman following Tuesday’s elimination show.

In fact, it was at the BAFTA event in Los Angeles over the weekend that George admitted to watching Blake and the NBC singing competition.

Blake is known as a man who likes to have a good time, and when Laura suggested Blake and George should go drinking together, the country superstar put an offer out there to the Oscar winner.
