Country music superstar Blake Shelton and his bubbly rock star girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, have been bringing holiday cheer to fans all month long with their festive, co-penned duet, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.”
So when Gwen premiered her brand new Christmas special on NBC on Dec. 12, it only made sense for the country crooner to make an appearance. And it only made sense for the two lovebirds to take their fun collaboration to the stage.
While standing alongside his beauty, Blake donned a fancy black tuxedo, and strummed on his acoustic guitar. He also took the lead of the first verse before Gwen, who dazzled in a red plaid dress featuring a sexy slit, jumped in on the second verse. As the two traded vocals and blended harmonies on the tune, they were joined by a group of energetic dancers who were decked out in mini-skirts, gold tinsel and Christmas-themed headbands.
In addition to singing with his ladylove, Blake appeared in select parts of the one-hour program, including one skit where he tried to get his girlfriend to step under this mistletoe.
Gwen didn’t take her man up on his gesture because she didn’t want her signature red lipstick to smudge.
Blake also dealt with a slight issue in another funny segment. Before going onstage, a child security guard wouldn’t let him enter his dressing room to change because he didn’t recognize the “I’ll Name The Dogs” hit-maker.
After a few attempts at trying to convince the kid that he was, indeed, Blake, the country cowboy finally gave up and pointed his finger in the opposite direction, while yelling out, “Hey, that’s Garth Brooks.” He then ran passed the pint-sized security guard.
Too funny, y’all!
Blake, of course, doesn’t have to convince anybody who he is, as he is currently nominated for three awards in this year’s Rare Country Awards. They include Fan Moment of the Year, Grand Ole Opry Moment of the Year and Male Artist of the Year. There’s still a little time left for you to decide the winners. Voting ends Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
