  • Hey, Adam.
  • Hi.
  • You are cute as can be.
  • You're cute as can be.
  • You're just adorable.
  • Are you're letting your hair grow?
  • Yeah, just in the middle.
  • Just in the middle?
  • I'm just letting it grow in the middle.
  • I wish that I had let it grow everywhere because then it's
  • be long by now.
  • But it's just the center strip is just long.
  • If you lift that up, how tall is that?
  • Very.
  • And it gets really sketchy looking sometimes.
  • Like this morning, for example, I woke up
  • and my kids were standing there staring at my head.
  • Because they're like, what's wrong with you?
  • It was like a total chicken head, like cockatoo vibe.
  • Yeah, your hair is always-- you always
  • are doing something different with your hair.
  • I like that.
  • You're always changing it up.
  • It's fun, you know?
  • Yeah.
  • I still have it.
  • I'm really happy I still have hair,
  • so I'm just so excited about it.
  • I'm like, let's do something crazy.
  • It's good.
  • I like it.
  • Thanks.
  • So your friend, Jake Gyllenhaal, came on.
  • I'm sorry, who?
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Came on and mentioned to me that you had not seen
  • my stand-up special on Netflix.
  • Yeah.
  • And so I called you out on that and--
  • That was awesome.
  • That was awesome.
  • Awesome that that's what he did, too.
  • Thank you, Jake.
  • Appreciate it, if you're out there.
  • You had time in between then.
  • Because he was telling you how much he loved it
  • and in all that time, you didn't watch it
  • and told him to tell me that you did.
  • OK, well.
  • That's not entirely true.
  • I like to be truthful with you because you're my friend.
  • Yes.
  • Friends watch each other's stuff.
  • Yeah.
  • They do.
  • OK.
  • You really want to hear our story?
  • So Jake wanted me to tell you, he wanted me to email you.
  • This is how this whole thing started, OK?
  • He said, hey, do you have Ellen's email?
  • I want to tell her how much I love her special.
  • And I'm like, yeah, no.
  • I can't do that because then she'll
  • know that I haven't seen it yet and then I'll
  • get in trouble indirectly by association.
  • So I can't give you that email address yet until I watch it.
  • That's how this whole thing started.
  • And how long ago was that?
  • It was a while back.
  • Yeah, right.
  • It was a while back.
  • And then, you know, he came on the show
  • and he threw me under the bus and the story morphed
  • into all this different stuff.
  • And you know what?
  • That's not the truth.
  • Yeah.
  • This is where you're going to get the truth, right now.
  • I didn't watch it, but then I did
  • and I thought it was delightful.
  • Thank you.
  • Thank you.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • I'm just giving you a hard time.
  • But listen--
  • I can take it.
  • I know you can take it.
  • We really are friends.
  • And it's amazing you are sort of responsible for Portia
  • and I getting together.
  • She wears a sweater around the house
  • all the time that you gave me on like your second appearance
  • here.
  • And then we ended up buying your house.
  • We live in your house.
  • I know.
  • By the way--
  • Can I come over?
  • --we found these.
  • Oh, wow.
  • [CHEERING]
  • Yeah.
  • These aren't mine.
  • These are not mine.
  • Yeah, these look familiar.
  • They were there.
  • Yeah.
  • But yeah, so we live in your house now
  • and you'll see it next week.
  • You're coming over next week.
  • I am coming over next week.
  • But it's a funny story because we were not in the market
  • to buy that house at all, and you
  • convinced us to buy the house.
  • And now we live in your house.
  • I know, and I'm really happy because I love that house,
  • so now I get to go over and hang out there.
  • And hang out in your house.
  • I'll be like the guy that's there way too often.
  • If only you'd pay the mortgage once in a while with us.
  • I'll chip in.
  • So you're not on The Voice anymore.
  • This is the first time in 10 years
  • that you're here not talking about being on The Voice.
  • I know.
  • And is it something you miss, or how do you feel?
  • You know, I really do miss it.
  • I love the people that I met and worked with,
  • and obviously we all know how I feel about Blake.
  • Oh, yeah, that guy.
  • And, I do miss it but I also don't
  • miss how much I had to work.
  • I was just constantly working for so many years.
  • Very lucky, very fortunate, very blessed and all that.
  • But just to be able to kind of stop
  • in this moment to spend time with my new young family
  • and just have the greatest time ever.
  • Now I'm just like a stay-at-home dad.
  • I just stay home and do very little.
  • And you're a very hands-on dad, too.
  • Your daughters, you always, on a Sunday,
  • you take them out to breakfast and you're always
  • doing something with your kids.
  • I think that's great.
  • And you're home a lot, you're writing you're
  • working more on your music.
  • That's us.
  • Those babies are so precious.
  • I'm obsessed with them.
  • I mean, I know that's a good thing
  • because they're my children.
  • Yes.
  • That's why I don't do much because I love hanging--
  • I mean, like I genuinely just adore them in a way
  • that I never knew I could adore any little person.
  • It's really sweet.
  • I mean, the pictures, they need to stop.
  • But the pictures you send, they're so--
  • So the song that you're going to do today is a beautiful song.
  • You sent it to me a few months ago and it's called Memories.
  • But tell everybody what it's about.
  • It's a heavy song it kind of came
  • to me-- this incredible guy came to me with the song
  • and there were holes in it, it was unfinished.
  • But it was definitely about what it
  • was going to be about already, which is loss
  • and experiencing and suffering loss, which all of us
  • share that in common.
  • I had just gone through losing my manager and my best friend.
  • I was in diapers with this guy, and he passed away recently.
  • And so this song came to me at a very interesting time.
  • I filled in the holes with the proper words
  • that I thought would match the experience that I
  • had been going through.
  • And so this is very, heavy.
  • I never had a song about anything quite like this.
  • And I miss him every day.
  • And this is, to me, the best way to tribute--
  • the best possible way to tribute him.
  • Yeah, he was 40 years old, which is way too young,
  • and he was the first, really, friend that you lost and you're
  • very emotional.
  • When you sent me the song, you told me how personal this was.
  • And so even performing it today, even in rehearsal,
  • it's emotional for you.
  • So I'm so glad you're here doing it.
  • And I'm happy to be doing it here with you
  • because that feels like the right place.
  • Yeah.
  • And you should wear these when you do it.
  • OK.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • All right.
