Singer MIRANDA LAMBERT will be going head-to-head with her husband BLAKE SHELTON on his talent show THE VOICE next year after signing on to serve as a mentor for his rival judge SHAKIRA.
The House That Built Me hitmaker recently headed to the Los Angeles set of the reality program to shoot episodes for season six – but it wasn’t Shelton the competitive star chose to lend her expertise to.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, “Shakira and Miranda got along well. Blake joked that Miranda was helping another coach. But it was in good fun.”
Shakira and R&B hunk Usher served as replacements for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green during season four, when the original judges decided to take a break from the show, and the newcomers will return for another run in 2014.
Guest mentors for the current fifth season of The Voice are Ryan Tedder, Miguel, Ed Sheeran and superstar Cher.
On (Novemebr 22) Miranda and husband Blake Shelton attended and performed These Days (I Barely Get By) at a tribute concert to the late George Jones. I have added 21 HQ photos to the gallery thanks to Lea. Be sure to check them out!

Keith Urban tells ABC News Radio the seed for his smash duet “We Were Us” was planted in 2005 when Miranda Lambert opened for him on tour.
“We used to do a song every night during my set,” Keith says. “I always loved singing with her, and I thought our voices went really well together.”
In the back of his mind, Keith says he was always looking for a duet that would fit their voices. When he heard “We Were Us,” he knew he’d found it.
“I just called her up and sent her the song, and she loved it. Her and Blake [Shelton] actually came to the studio and hung out for a few hours… We sang it together and it was done.”
“We Were Us” is the Aussie superstar’s first duet, but it may not be his last collaboration with Miranda. Backstage at the CMA Awards, the Female Vocalist of the Year joked that Keith owes her a guest appearance on her next CD, since their hit single is on his album, Fuse.
I have added 200+ screen captures from Keith Urban’s newly released video for We Were Us featuring our girl Miranda! Be sure to check out the video, the captures, and request the song using our request page!

A little puppy has just found a forever home, but not just any home. The champagne-colored dog was adopted on Saturday by one of country music’s biggest stars – Miranda Lambert. All thanks to a 6-year-old girl who dared to dream big.
In early August Riley Weinberger created a video about the rescued animals she cares for as a volunteer for Wellington-based Big Dog Ranch Rescue. She is a huge fan of Lambert and had heard that the singer shared her passion for animals. She wanted desperately for Lambert to tour the facility during her visit to West Palm Beach to perform at Cruzan Amphitheatre on September 21 so she could help promote the work done by the rescue organization.
So she created the video and asked the singer: “Please Miranda, we could save more dogs lives.”
Hours before Lambert was to belt out her famous songs she stopped by Big Dog Ranch, met Riley and her family, adopted a puppy and named him Bellamy (in honor of the Bellamy brothers), according to the rescue organization.
“Miranda was wonderful and very kind,” said Eric Weinberger, Riley’s father. He said that in addition to adopting the puppy, who was rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Shelter, the singer donated money to Big Dog Ranch.
Riley’s video caught the attention of one of WPTV’s producer who wrote a story about the child’s desire to help better the lives of sick and abandoned animals. After the story aired on WPTV. Riley went on to be interviewed by several media organizations in Palm Beach County.
So far Riley’s video has had more than 2100 views. You can watch her video at here.
