Awww…Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are on each other’s minds at all times — their romance has even inspired them when choosing songs for their artists to sing on ‘The Voice’! HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop.
A lot more went into song choice on the Nov. 30 episode of The Voice than you’d expect…especially for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. The coaches, who are dating, gave their team members very specific songs to sing this week, and the decisions were based on their very own relationship, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
“They are purposely picking songs for their contestants to reflect their feelings about each other and reflect about how they feel about their exes,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Their contestants song choices last night definitely had a breakup/makeup feel to them, and it was for sure all planned to be an extension of their feelings.”
Gwen made a very telling statement on her own during Monday’s show by singing “Used To Love You,” which is the emotional song she wrote about her divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Meanwhile, her three singers, Jeffery Austin, Korin Bukowski and Braiden Sunshine, were given the tracks “Jealous” by Labrinth, “Same Old Love” by Selena Gomez and “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons, respectively, to sing, which are all about tumultuous relationships gone wrong, falling right in line with what Gwen went through with her ex-husband.
But while the 46-year-old seems to be focusing on her fury toward Gavin, Blake’s song choices reveal he’s thinking more about his blossoming love for Gwen. While Emily Ann Roberts’ song choice, “She Got You,” is about a lost love, Zach Seabaugh’s and Barrett Baber’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “I’d Love To Lay You Down” are highly-romantic love songs, and could definitely be a way for the country singer to send a sweet, subtle message to his girl. Awwww — hopefully Gwen was lifted up by this and will have happier options for her singers next week. In the meantime, check out her hot new single RIGHT HERE.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Blake and Gwen are too focused on each other and not focused enough on the show? Or are they doing a great job at balancing both?
