Who Will Be Blake Shelton’s 2013 ACM Awards Co-Host? – Readers Poll
Blake Shelton has dropped a few hints about who his co-host will be at the 2013 ACM Awards, but the secret won’t be revealed until 25,000 people tweet a message from ACMCountry.com. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate! Who do you think will join ‘The Voice’ coach and ‘Sure Be Cool if You Did’ singer onstage this spring? Below are our five favorite potential co-hosts, based on what Shelton says and who we’d like to see.
Miranda Lambert: A husband-wife duo would be a ton of fun to watch, and country fans would tune in just to see their interplay. Lambert’s not as naturally outgoing as Shelton (who is, though?), but alongside her man, she may open up enough to create a pairing to look forward to for the next several years.
Kelly Clarkson: Kelly Clarkson and Shelton are good friends, so there is some natural chemistry. She’s also the future daughter-in-law of Reba McEntire, so she has a strong ally. Shelton’s ACMs co-host will have to have a personality as big as his, and Clarkson fits that description. She has TV experience from ‘Duets’ on ABC, and she would bring in a new audience of pop fans.
Luke Bryan: Luke Bryan is our favorite choice for an all-male cast. The singer has a great personality, although it’s not clear if he can polish his sense of humor enough for a live television broadcast. He’s never done television in this capacity, so this choice would be more of a risk for ACMs producers.
Jason Aldean: There really isn’t a male artist who’s hotter than Jason Aldean, but he’s indicated in the past that he’s not cut out for hosting. Could Shelton have convinced him?
Adam Levine: Rocker Adam Levine seems like an odd choice, but the two have shown great chemistry on ‘The Voice,’ and his presence — like Clarkson’s — would bring non-country fans to the telecast. He’s personable and well-known enough. However, it’d be like a three-hour commercial for an NBC show… during a CBS broadcast.
