She also praised the fact that they had nine Emmy nominations for season three and two Sports Emmy awards for the previous season, saying: "It really is exciting, my team works extremely hard."

Kelly then reflected on the immense amount of awards she and her team achieved, and one statistic made her think of a certain country music icon. 

She said, “I competed in 28 games and I only won 15 of them. This must be the feeling that Blake has on The Voice. Cause you know, I was on for eight seasons and won four, so 50 per cent of the time.”
