Valentine’s Day may still be a few days away, but that didn’t stop Gwen Stefani from singing about love early.
The pop music sensation and girlfriend of “People” magazine’s 2017 “Sexiest Man Alive” Blake Shelton pleased an enthusiastic crowd with her effervescent love song, “Make Me Like You,” as part of her post-Super Bowl performance on Feb. 4, at the Mystic Lake Center inside the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Minneapolis.
Prior to singing the infectious jam she told the crowd, “I was just thinking I get to stay up late tonight, so thank you for coming out tonight. You guys are incredible … I’m going to sing about love right now with you guys. This song is about pure, true real love.”
Then, without hesitation, the band began to play as a bubbly Gwen confidently paced back and forth on the floor. A group of backup dancers also accompanied her while she nailed all of the lyrics of the tune in front of a humongous and psychedelic-looking screen. By the time the chorus hit, it was clear that Gwen was caught up in the moment, because she was jumping up and down with so much energy and excitement.
Of course, Gwen also showed off her incredible physique during her performance, while dressed in plaid pants and a sparkly, red bustier. Could the 48-year-old hit-maker’s ab muscles look any more flawless?
As fans may already know, “Make Me Like You” is one of the tracks featured on Gwen’s 2016 album, “This Is What The Truth Feels Like.” The tune, which she released on Feb. 12, 2016, was inspired by her budding relationship with Blake.
Speaking of Blake, he and his gal, along with her three sons — Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 3 — spent time together in Minneapolis before her headlining performance. The adorable group sat in the stands and watched Super Bowl LII, where the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots by a score of 41-33.
Gwen, of course, documented the family football day on Instagram with pictures and videos of their time together. You can see some of those moments below!
