Screaming, crying, girls going wild—When teen pop star Justin Bieber played NBC's The Voice this week, Blake Shelton couldn't help but think of another entertainer.

“It's got to be similar to what happened with Elvis when he would come walking into a room," Blake told website hollywoodlife.com afterward.

"People [were] screaming and crying; I literally looked at a group of girls that were in the audience and they were crying!” he said.

“You would have to be living under a damn rock not to know who the kid is and the impact that he is having,” Blake noted.

“Man, I like that kid,” Blake continued. “He came over and shook all of our hands, so he seems to be a really good kid on top of everything else, on top of being extremely hot and talented!”

That makes one more country star with Bieber Fever—Justin says he recently wrote a song with Taylor Swift for his upcoming album.
