Blake Shelton took a bit of a tumble onstage at the 2018 Pendleton Whisky Music Fest on Saturday, July 14.
Blake Shelton Falls, Blames Pitbull
The The Voice coach was performing a headlining when he hit something and fell. He was able to stand back up again, but not before fans were able to take a video of his minor fall.
On Twitter, he admitted that he had a bit of drink before he hopped onstage; after all, the show was hosted by a known whiskey brand. However, Pitbull, who performed a set before Shelton, might have something to do with the fall.
Ok Pendleton I know somebody is bound to have video of me falling on stage last night!! Please!! I have to see it!!! Post that shit! And yes I had been drinking. A lot.. — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) July 15, 2018
By the way @pitbull...I blame you. It was my attempt at competing with your show... I am a dancing son of a bitch when I don't take a 10 second giant shit fall... — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) July 15, 2018
The tweets were, of course, teasing. The two performers seemed to have bonded backstage before they played their respective sets.
Pitbull even posted a photo of himself smiling alongside the "I Lived It" singer on Twitter. Shelton noticeably had a red cup in hand.

However, not everyone was amused. A Twitter user responded to Shelton's tweets and accused the country singer of putting on a bad show. The fan argued that he should not have arrived drunk to a concert that people paid for. The fan also compared the award-winning singer-songwriter to Justin Bieber who, in 2015, was seen drinking a bottle of Hennessy and smoking weed onstage.
To that, the 42-year-old responded that his account was made for the fans who have a sense of humor. After all, neither drinking nor falling onstage made the show anything less than fantastic.
