Viewers who tuned in to watch Chelsea Lately on Thursday, November 29 may have been tempted to do a double take. The show’s host, Chelsea Handler, showed off a barely there black bustier bodysuit and fishnets in an effort to channel Christina Aguilera and make guest and Voice mentor, Blake Shelton, feel more at ease. Let’s be honest, though, Handler doesn’t pull it off half as well as Aguilera does!
“I wanted to dress like Christina to make you feel more comfortable,” joked Handler after welcoming a shocked Shelton according to Us Magazine. “I wanted you to feel like you were at your own job.” Handler wasn’t the only doppelganger present. Her sidekick Chuy wore a bald cap and feathered coat to poke fun at another Voice mentor, Cee Lo Green.
Shelton took it all in stride playfully announcing, “Happy Christmas to me!” Shelton continued to joke around admitting his love for the late night host despite being married to country singer Miranda Lambert.
“I love you, too,” answered Handler. “You’re my favorite guest. I love having you on. You and Will Ferrell – out of guys, I love you and Will Ferrell the most.”
What do you think, was Handler’s imitation all in good fun? Let us know in the comments section below!
