Confirmation of the blossoming love between the two Voice coaches only hit headlines last week, but after allegedly keeping it under wraps for some time, the two seem more than ready to pack on the PDA.
This week’s episode of The Voice really just seemed like they were making up for lost time, as their flirting had the other judges (not to mention, the crowd and viewers at home) saying a big, collective “aww.”
First, there was this adorable hug — when all the coaches came out onstage at the start of the show, Stefani came out last. She ran straight into Shelton’s arms, and he picked her up in a huge bear hug and spun her around. So cute!
Then, just after Amy Vachal from Adam Levine’s team finished with her cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” Shelton was the first to comment on the performance, saying, “I don’t think there’s ever been a more elegant and classy performance of a song about a booty call in the history of music. I mean, that was unbelievable. I hear that song on the radio every day.” When Levine was surprised Shelton even knew the song, his response was a cheeky, “Gwen sang it to me on The Tonight Show!” making Stefani blush bright red.
That’s not the only flirting the two were doing. At commercial breaks, Shelton could be seen heading over to Stefani’s chair to chat her up, and Extra reports that the two even left the building for some alone time outside during a break. At the end of the show, Stefani headed straight for Shelton’s chair. The two are practically inseparable already!
