They crooned, we swooned! Did you enjoy Blake & Luke’s hosting job as much as we did?
Just when we thought we couldn’t love Blake Shelton any more — we’re big fans of The Voice here at HollywoodLife.com — the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards proved us wrong. Blake and Luke Bryan were the perfect pair of hosts, whether they were taking funny jabs at each other, or just standing there and looking pretty.
And is it any wonder why Luke won Entertainer of the Year? I mean, the guy deserved to win based on his hosting duties alone! (Blake may have mocked Luke’s tight jeans, but we’re pretty sure no one on our staff was complaining.)
We also loved Blake’s banter with wife Miranda Lambert. Any other guy talking about seeing his wife naked would feel like an over-sharer, but for some reason, Blake sounded adorable when intro-ing Miranda. And she certainly didn’t seem to mind one bit.
To be fair, this isn’t Blake’s first time at the rodeo. He co-hosted the ACMs with Reba McEntire — who previously hosted the awards solo for many years — for the past two years, but we think Luke made a better co-host than Reba. Nothing against the country queen; we just loved watching Blake and Luke’s bromance blossom right before our very eyes. (And if there’s one thing we’ve learned from The Voice, Blake is the king of bromances.)
HollywoodLifers, did you love Blake and Luke as hosts as much as we did? Drop us a comment with your review of the ACM twosome!
