Guest star Lambert appears on hit vocal competition series that features husband Blake Shelton as musician coach
NBC's "The Voice" will kick up the entertainment appeal of the hit vocal competition series by featuring Grammy-winning star Miranda Lambert in a duet with finalist Dia Frampton on the live results show and season finale on Wednesday, June 29 (8-9 p.m. ET). Lambert - the wife of Blake Shelton, one of the show's musician coaches - is a multi-award winning and platinum-selling country music recording artist.
The announcements were made by Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming for NBC and Universal Media Studios.
"Miranda is an amazing artist and it will be fascinating to see her blend her talents with those of Dia," said Telegdy. "This special duet is what 'The Voice' represents to our audience. Together, Miranda and Blake, who represent a true power couple in country music, will help provide a memorable finale for our first season."
"I am thrilled to perform on my favorite new show," said Lambert. "It's been a joy watching my husband grow so attached to his team. Truthfully, I am a little jealous that I am not a coach myself. I can't wait to be a part of it."
The other three finalists are Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez, who will perform on June 28 with the winner announced on Wednesday, June 29 (8-9 p.m. ET).
With three platinum albums in a row, Lambert recently added CMT Female Video of the Year to her ever-expanding list of accolades, which also include Academy of Country Music's Top Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year for "The House That Built Me."
In 2010, Lambert was nominated for a record-setting nine CMA awards and took home the trophies for three of those, including Album of the Year ("Revolution"), Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year for "The House That Built Me." She received her first AMA nomination for Favorite Female Country Artist and won her first fan-voted CMT Award, for Female Video of the Year. Earlier in the year, she scored ACM wins for Album of the Year ("Revolution"), Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year ("White Liar"). Her second single from "Revolution," "The House That Built Me," held the No. 1 position for four straight weeks. It followed "White Liar," which was Lambert's first career No. 1 single.
Lambert is currently recording her fourth album, to be released fall 2011, and headlining the "Revolution Continues" tour.
