Reality singing competition ‘The Voice’ is nominated for an astonishing five Emmy awards in 2013, including Outstanding Reality — Competition Program. The news put coach Blake Shelton in a celebratory mood.

“Now THAT calls for a drink!” he wrote on his Facebook page. Other shows nominated for Outstanding Reality — Competition Program include ‘Top Chef,’ ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ ‘Project Runway,’ ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ‘Amazing Race,’ which has won the category nine of the last 10 years.

Shelton is certainly on a winning streak. The singer has won three of the last four seasons of ‘The Voice,’ with his team member Danielle Bradbery winning Season Four last month.

In spite of the success of the show, Shelton says he never imagined he would be part of any kind of TV program. “It wasn’t planned out,” he tells Country Aircheck. “Ironically enough, over the years of being a Nashville country artist, I always had people tell me, ‘Hey, you should be on TV. You need to be a comedian or something like that.’ But it was never something I pursued or talked about. When ‘The Voice’ just kind of fell into my lap, I don’t know if I’m one of those people who believes in meant-to-be or not, but it sure seemed like that’s what it was, because it does feel natural for me to do this.”

Shelton will be joined for the live broadcast of the Emmy Awards by this season’s coaches Adam Levine, Usher and Shakira. He will spend much of the summer and fall on his Ten Times Crazier tour, which heads to Missouri, Indiana and Ohio this weekend for three sold-out shows. See all of his upcoming concerts here.
