It’s official — Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton will BOTH be performing at the CMA Awards on Nov. 4! The event will mark the first time the exes will have to appear in the same place publicly since their divorce in July. Will it result in a majorly awkward run-in?
Miranda Lambert, 31, and Blake Shelton, 39 will really be put to the test at the CMA Awards on Nov. 4! It’ll be extremely hard for the singers to avoid each other at the star-studded event, which they’re both officially confirmed to be attending. Cue the awkwardness!
Reloaded: 20 #1’s
Considering they’re two of the biggest names in country music, it’s no surprise that the exes are both attending the big awards show. Blake was added as a confirmed performer on Oct. 19, and Miranda had already been on the list of artists taking the stage, so there’s absolutely no question now — they’ll both be there.
Plus, they’re both up for Female/Male Vocalist of the Year awards, so it’ll definitely be interesting to see, if either of them takes home a win, if they thank the other in an acceptance speech! The pair announced in July that they’d be getting divorced just four years after their May 2011 wedding, and this will be the first time they’ll be forced to attend the same public event, so we have a lot to look out for!
“In Oklahoma, it happens so fast. Like, Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, whatever we had,” Blake explained. “Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like I think it was like a nine or 10-day waiting period until it’s over.” Yup, no time to second-guess the decision in this one — they were officially divorced on the SAME day they made the announcement.
Tons of cheating rumors plagued the couple after their break up, but overall, there doesn’t seem to be any major bad blood between the pair. Hopefully, they can both just do their thing on stage at the CMAs, and everything will be amicable. We’ll be watching, of course! Click here to listen to Blake’s biggest hits ahead of the CMAs.
HollywoodLifers, do you think things will be awkward between Blake and Miranda at the awards show?
