Watch: Carson Daly’s Son Trolls Blake Shelton about Exiting ‘The Voice’

Over the years on The Voice, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly have become best buds. So, it’s no wonder Carson’s 13-year-old son, Jackson felt very comfortable roasting Blake about leaving his father after the season ends.

For NBC’s Nightly News, Jackson Daly guilt-tripped Blake Shelton with the following question: “You and my dad have been on The Voice throughout it all. Why are you leaving him?”

Shelton didn’t hesitate and answered quickly, “You know, when I first started on this show, I think you were one, and I feel like I just wanted to stay here long enough that I felt like you were grown enough to make it on your own without my influence.”

Jackson then asked for advice for a 13-year-old like himself who can audition for The Voice, Blake stated, “What I would say to you is music’s probably not gonna be your thing because I’ve heard you sing, and please, for the sake of your own self-worth, don’t put yourself through that.” Jackson had a fun response with a smile, re-wording the question as, “Alright, well what would you say to kids my age, not me, who actually can sing, who want to try-out for The Voice?”
