Shelton and the other honorees mentioned above will receive their stars on the Walk of Fame in 2023.
UDiscover Music explains how the inductees for the Walk of Fame are selected:
“Hollywood Walk of Fame inductees are chosen by a panel of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce from hundreds of submissions approved by the nominees or their reps. The honoree must agree to attend an unveiling ceremony within two years – typically timed to coincide with promotion of a new project.”
Shelton was on hand to celebrate when his good friend and former Voice coach Adam Levine received a star on the Walk of Fame in 2017. Watch Shelton speak at Levine’s ceremony in the video below.
We wonder if Levine will show up when Shelton gets his own star on the Walk of Fame next year?
