‘The Voice’ Coach Blake Shelton Has a Quirky Habit That Everyone's Talking About

Have you noticed this?!

After many seasons of The Voice, dedicated fans understand that the coaches play a huge role in the show. Everything from the advice they offer their team members to opinions they share with the audience can impact the results of the entire competition.

While it's clear that the musical skills of Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and newcomer John Legend are very important, there might be something else influencing the outcome of each season. Let's evaluate the evidence, shall we?

Over the reality show's eight-year history, veteran coach Blake has crowned a winner from his team in six of The Voice's 15 previous seasons. That's more than any other coach—including Adam, who has also been on the show since the beginning—which *statistically* makes him the best. (Though Kelly is threatening that title with her back-to-back victories).

While the 42-year-old's decades of singing experience could have something to do with his Voice wins over the years, the other superstar coaches aren't exactly industry rookies. There's only one thing that Blake does that really sets him apart: the Finger Point.

Blake has been honing this strategy since season one. The execution is simple: He points his finger over his own head while a contestant is choosing their coach during the Blind Auditions, seemingly as a last-ditch effort to sway them in his favor.

The worst/best part? It actually works (sometimes). Ahead of the season 16 premiere, The Voice released a hilarious video that shows the most notable times Blake has used his finger-pointing technique since the show's inception.

The coach's quirky habit doesn't seem to infuriate fans as much as the way Adam sits—but people still have divided opinions about Blake's signature point and whether or not it really helps.

Blake Shelton with his weird finger point is really annoying.

I live to see point that finger at his head

I really wish that you would stop using your finger to point at the top of your head, when you want a contestant to choose you to be their coach . It is not cute, nor does it convince anyone to want to vote for you. It is simply annoying .

Blake should trademark his finger point. Lol.

Some of these tweets are from as early as 2012—further proving that Blake has been wagging his finger since day one. Regardless of the move's success or how people feel about it, he definitely won't be stopping anytime soon. 👈
