He tweeted, “SOOO…. I’m performing next week on @NBCTheVoice. I’m performing with @gwenstefani. We’re performing a song off my album we wrote together.” Fans of the country singer and the show are very eager to see the two perform. It will be especially telling to see what kind of chemistry Shelton and Stefani have onstage because, in the past, it’s been a great indicator of how happy he is in his relationship.
Back in 2005, Shelton and his ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, sang a cover of the song “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” and it has been noted by Shelton as the moment he knew he was falling in love with Lambert. Throughout the performance, you can see Shelton lovingly stare at Lambert while she sang her parts of the song. It’s going to be hard for the audience not to compare that moment to his duet with Stefani next week.
Of course, Shelton has no doubt that Stefani will do amazing during their performance. Even back in November, insiders who had heard the two sing together noted how pretty and natural she sounded on the country song. Stefani has also been performing for decades with current boyfriends, ex-boyfriends and even her husband at the time. She knows how to put on a killer show no matter who she’s singing with!
I’m personally still a little bit skeptical of their romance (and whether or not it’s all just for TV ratings and record sales), but I’ll definitely tune in next week to see whether or not it’s the real thing.
I want to hear what you think! Are they going to kill the performance or fall flat?
