Blake Shelton Tries Sushi for the First Time on the 'Tonight Show,' Says It Has the Texture of 'Play Dough'

It’s no secret that Blake Shelton is a born and bred country boy! But now that The Voice coach is a household name and dating superstar Gwen Stefani, he’s broadening his horizons a bit. Fortunately, he has pal Jimmy Fallon was on hand to help with that.
In a clip from The Tonight Show on Tuesday night, Fallon gets Shelton to have his first sushi meal ever at Nobu after the “Came Here to Forget” singer admitted he’s never tried “the raw stuff.”
First, Fallon treated Shelton to some sake or “rice wine,” which Shelton declared tasted like “Easter egg coloring.” He then ate some pickled ginger, which he said “has the texture of pre-chewed gum."
He then tried some sushi, which he said looked like “a human tongue.”
“The texture is Play Dough, but I will say this to you right now, man to man, I liked that,” Shelton admitted. “I liked how that tasted.”
In the multi-course meal, Shelton experienced highs and lows, constantly asking for “more rice wine”!
When it came time to take a sea urchin shot, Fallon asked Shelton for his technique.
“I’m going to pretend like this isn’t happening,” he quipped.
Thankfully the last course was a delicious Big Mac, much to Shelton’s delight.
