Entertainment Tonight caught up with the 2018 Billboard Music Awards host at the finale of The Voice on Tuesday, where she helped 15-year-old Brynn Cartelli celebrate becoming the youngest winner in the history of the show.

“I feel like it’s like the mom makeover on the Today show. I walk in and then I walk out and I’m like, ‘Damn!’” she cracked during the press day in Los Angeles ahead of Sunday’s BBMAs show.
