Blake Shelton helped a studio audience full of fans immerse themselves in the holiday spirit during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday (December 6), playing Santa Claus alongside the show’s host and announcing some of the goodies included in his latest Christmas giveaway.
“Blake, you’re a universal superstar, aren’t you?” DeGeneres asks Shelton, who agrees with a laugh, “I guess you could say that.”
As a “universal” star, Shelton was the perfect person to present the first giveaway: two tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood for each member of the audience. DeGeneres and Shelton went on to show off a slew of other exciting freebies, including gift certificates for Famous Footwear and Bombas, a set of Urbanista headphones, and even a two-night stay at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort in Arizona.
Shelton also performed his current single, “Come Back as a Country Boy,” on Ellen – a song he released in October. This is one of four new tracks included on a deluxe version of his Body language album; the new version of the project arrived on Friday (December 3) and also features duets with Hardy and Brooks & Dunn.
On the Ellen on stage, Shelton performed “Country Boy” against a backdrop of flying embers, steaming lava and flames. This matches the aesthetic of the recently released song clip, which features a number of fiery special effects, including Shelton himself emerging from a flaming bonfire.
