Blake Shelton would choose supermodel Kate Upton to be the fifth coach on “The Voice”, if the show ever added another swiveling chair. In a new video promoting season nine of NBC’s singing competition, the newly-single country star says he’s fan of Upton’s, um, “work.”

“I would actually want Kate to sit right next to me,” said Shelton, insisting that “musically, I would be interested in hearing her ideas. I feel like I could learn from her.”

Shelton, of course, is now single after ending his four-year marriage to fellow country crooner Miranda Lambert back in July. Just one problem: Upton has been dating pro baseball player Justin Verlander since 2011.

Back in January, Gossip Cop busted an inaccurate Star story that claimed Upton turned down the Detroit pitcher’s marriage proposal, leaving many to believe their relationship was over. But in late June, Verlander confirmed to Forbes that the couple was still going strong.

Perhaps if Shelton wants to meet models, he should hit up pal Adam Levine. The Maroon 5 singer tied the knot with cover girl Behati Prinsloo in July 2014 in Mexico.

Season nine of “The Voice” begins on September 21. Check out the video below, and tell Gossip Cop who you would pick if there were a fifth coach’s chair?
