The Voice Season 19 is just around the corner and, on the heels of its premiere, one of its former judges is telling an absolutely bonkers story of an incident that happened behind the scenes. I guess it's only natural when Miley Cyrus is mentioned the story gets a little crazy, but not so crazy as hearing about a terrible accident involving her dog while she was on the show.
My other dog, the first day of The Voice, I was like so excited… This is sad, but it was handled, and my dog is totally thriving and fine. She like, you know on sets there’s wires everywhere. We got all the people singing, everyone is huddled around, like, ‘Who’s going to win The Voice?’ And my dog goes and bites on to the wires of the TV everyone’s watching and all of a sudden, we notice she’s convulsing and she’s getting electrocuted. And you can’t open her mouth because the person trying to open her mouth is also being electrocuted.
That's quite a stressful situation, especially when it's something like the situation Miley Cyrus described. When someone or something is being electrocuted, immediately grabbing them may only result in two things being electrocuted, so The Voice team and Miley surely struggled with what to do at the moment as her poor dog suffered from biting down on the television wire.
For any pet lovers feeling sick while reading, rest assured, there is an upside. Miley Cyrus completed the story and confirmed that years after that horrific incident, her dog is still around for the whole incident to exist as a story with an upside.
But she is totally fine. Her name is Little Dog. And she is thriving in Nashville, TN and doing great, but my dog was electrocuted on The Voice.
Luckily for Miley Cyrus' dogs, she hasn't been invited back to The Voice for some time. There has been plenty of speculation as to why that is over the years, though it's worth mentioning a lot of that is unfounded. Hell, it may be this incident with the dog that had producers think twice about having her back on, though she didn't say if this happened her first or second time being a coach for the NBC singing series.
