Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s performance at the 2020 Grammy Awards was very peculiar as it gathered mixed reactions from netizens. Some of them liked it; some others didn’t.
The couple took the stage early on the ceremony to sing their new song, “Nobody but You.” The video of the duet was shared on Blake’s official YouTube channel on January 21, less than a week before the Grammys.

For their performance, Blake was wearing a classic, black suit and tie with matching black shows while playing his guitar and singing in front of the crowd.
Gwen, who joined him on stage after he sang the first verse, opted for a beautiful, white, off-the-shoulder dress with red and golden accessories attached to it. The upper section was more like a corset, and she was also wearing a tiara made of red flowers.
Although one would imagine that his and Gwen Stefani’s show would have been one of the most anticipated ones due to how fresh the release of their song was, it attracted plenty of negative reactions.
Despite the beautiful lyrics addressing how much they love each other, some netizens pointed out that they couldn’t wait for their performance to end.
Another Twitter user admitted that the couple’s chemistry on stage was very awkward, even comparing it to two people who have nothing in common, but their children are friends, and they are forced to interact regularly.
One of the aspects that some people remarked and criticized was Gwen’s face, claiming that she has had more surgeries than necessary and that it “doesn’t move at all anymore.”
A second Twitter user wrote:
“What has Gwen Stefani done to her face? And don't give me that natural aging malarkey bc what's happening ain't natural. [sic]”
A different netizen pointed out that there was no doubt that the “Hollaback Girl” singer had work done on her face, adding that she looks great to be in her 50s. The user wrote:
“I still think it's hilarious that's she's so cool and trendy and she cuts about with a guy who dresses like the office manager having a mid life crisis [sic].”
Finally, another detractor of Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s Grammys performance remarked that they didn’t want to live in a world where the “Don’t Speak” singer performs a ballad with her boyfriend “who is BFFs with Paul Ryan.”
Even though their performance indeed attracted a lot of negative comments on social media, some people took their time to acclaim the powerful couple praising some of the aspects of the short show, including Gwen Stefany’s dress.
Another netizen highlighted the fact that Gwen and Blake were holding hands while singing, adding that both of them looked great and that the song was beautiful.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s romance has been making headlines ever since it was confirmed back in 2015, a few months after the country music singer and his ex-wife Miranda Lambert parted ways after five years together.
In Gwen’s case, she had just ended a long relationship with musician Gavin Rossdale, with whom she had been married to since 2002. Together, they have three sons born between 2006 and 2015.
At the moment, the relationship between Gwen and Blake seems to be on the right track, and the next step for them would be marriage! However, they have not shared anything related to a possible engagement.
It didn’t stop Ellen DeGeneres from giving Blake a pre-engagement gift in mid-2019 during her show. After talking for a while about the film “Ugly Dolls,” Ellen gave him a clock with the photo of Blake and Gwen sharing a kiss.
Fans of the couple have been eagerly waiting for them to walk down the aisle for years, and according to People, they might be ready to take the next step!
The source claimed that the country music great has been considering popping the question for a long time as both of them have taken their relationship very seriously. People cannot wait for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s wedding!
