Just when you think you've heard it all on The Voice, Blake Shelton hurled the world's most ridiculous (and rather hilarious) accusation about Adam Levine and Kelly Clarkson on Monday night.

As viewers know, Kelly and Blake have been engaging in playful banter while trying to build up their respective season 20 teams. After all that we've witnessed so far between the two, it wasn't too surprising to see them fight for contestant Keegan Ferrell, who took on Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved" for his audition on Monday. But while Blake tried to impress the competitor by flaunting his friendship with ex-Voice coach Adam, a.k.a. the lead singer of Maroon 5, he also threw Kelly under the bus with a rather outrageous lie.

"Take note at who's missing and who is in that chair," Blake said while looking over at Kelly. "I’m not saying Kelly Clarkson got Adam fired, but he’s gone and she’s sitting there."

While Kelly protested and denied Blake's accusations, the country singer jokingly added that NBC really stood for "Nothing But Clarkson." Kelly, trying to flip Blake's comments on him, replied, "So who you do want to go with? Powerful or weak?"

Blake continued to double down on his claims, telling Keegan that he didn't want to work with Adam's "archnemesis" (which is rich, of course, considering Blake's own relationship with Adam on The Voice over the years). Kelly continued to call Blake out for his lies, even when Nick Jonas joined in on the fun.

To be clear, Adam did not leave The Voice because of Kelly, despite Blake's comical claims. Instead, the Maroon 5 frontman said in 2019 that it was "time to move on" after 16 seasons and went on to produce the NBC program Songland.

Unfortunately for Kelly, however, the truth didn't matter — in the end, Blake was able to recruit Keegan to his team. Of course, everything worked out just fine for Kelly, though. The talk show host scored Ainae on her team, which officially closed out the season 20 blind audition round. Now that the season 20 teams are set, it'll be interesting to see how the coaches — especially Blake and Kelly — use their steals in the next round.
