Uh-oh, is Miranda Lambert skipping out on the American Music Awards Nov. 22 to avoid an awkward run-in with Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE clues why the country cutie looks like she’ll be a no-show at the Microsoft Theater.
We’re sure the last thing Miranda Lambert, 32, needs right now is to see her ex Blake Shelton, 39, and Gwen Stefani, 46, showing off their romance at the AMAs. While Miranda is a up for an AMA for Favorite Female Country Artist, Gwen will be one of the performers at the event. Though Blake hasn’t confirmed his attendance at the show, you know he’ll want to be waiting in the wings to cheer on Gwen as she wows the audience. HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report that Miranda Lambert will not be attending the big show, and we’ve got the reason why.
HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the seating chart for the event does not include Miranda, even though she’s up for a big award. While Blake hasn’t confirmed he’ll be attending, with his girlfriend taking center stage it’s likely he wouldn’t want to miss it. We can totally see why Miranda wouldn’t want an awkward run-in!
Such a shame! Miranda is up for an AMA in the Favorite Female Country Artist category against Kelsea Ballerini and Carrie Underwood. Miranda could likely win the category, as she took home a CMA trophy as Female Vocalist of the Year on Nov. 4. Unfortunately her big win at the CMAs was spoiled because a few hours before the awards show began, Gwen and Blake confirmed they were dating. What horrible timing!

But one thing that is pretty interesting per the seating chart is that Gwen will be seated next to Blake’s BFF Luke Bryan. He famously said, “It can’t be true, because there’s no way Blake could ever score a girl like that,” when he heard the news at the CMAs that Gwen and Blake were official. Ouch, poor Miranda! We can see why she’d want to stay away from the AMAs on so many levels!
