Rick Astley was honored…or “Rick-Rolled” by producers of The Voice on NBC on Monday when the show’s judges produced a video of "Together Forever" as a funny tribute to Astley's original version.
The updated version features Blake Shelton singing lead sporting an oversized black suit (much like Astley’s).He formed a dance line with co-stars Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas just like Rick did back in the day.
Astley posted hit reaction online. The 80’s star chucked during parts of the video and called it "priceless" and "brilliant."He complimented the judges on the show for nailing the small details. Rick added, "[It's] a crazy feeling having some of the greatest vocalists in the world sing an old song of yours from back in the day... It's amazing, even if they are doing it in a cheesy way."
