Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani belted out Stefani’s 1996 hit “Don’t Speak” on Thursday night, August 26, and the crowd went wild.
Stefani uploaded a video of the duet to Instagram, and it received almost 300,000 likes.
The No Doubt singer recently joked that she’s on a “honeymoon” tour with her new husband, and their late August performance exemplified that.

The Couple Got Married Over the July 4 Weekend
Over the July 4 weekend, Stefani and Shelton tied the knot in Oklahoma.
Page Six obtained photos from the nuptials.
Carson Daly officiated the wedding and spoke about the experience on July 5 on “Today”:
“It was incredible to be part of such an important moment in their lives. The best way to describe it is it was perfectly them — the whole weekend and the marriage itself. It was as elegant and refined and cool as Gwen is, and it was as country and down-home and fun as Blake is.”
Daly had previously admitted to “Today” hosts how close he has become with Shelton.
“He’s become one of the closest people in my life, to be honest with you. We’re very close, which is ironic because I — obviously, you know, I’m a producer on the show, I’m involved in recruiting coaches. I’ve talked some people into doing the show. And he was the person I knew the least. And so it’s just ironic that 10 years later, he’s the one that I’m definitely closest with,” Daly said. “Our families vacation together at this point, and so I’m very grateful. Aside from what the show, from an employment standpoint, has done for me and my family, you know, my friendship with Blake is probably the next best thing I’ve yielded by being on the show.”
According to ET, Shelton said of Stefani and the songwriting experience:
“I started trying to write a song because that’s kind of the opposite of what she would have expected me to do… Cause I’m to the point where I just don’t write that many songs anymore. It’s just like pulling teeth for me and she’s always on my case about it. … And so I started writing this song and I can only get so far with it. ‘Cause I didn’t want it to just be something for that moment. I wanted it to be something that was bigger and I saw I needed help. And so I called Craig Wiseman. I said ‘Craig, you got to help me with this thing. Like, I’m not joking around here.'”
Shelton Didn’t Know the Lyrics to 1 of His Wife’s Songs
On August 16, Shelton and the rest of “The Voice” coaches appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson” show, as seen above, where he played a game of “Throw Me a Line”, in which guests have to match a song to its lyrics.
“The Voice” coaches were given the lyrics: “A few times I’ve been around that track, so it’s not just gonna happen like that.”
Both Legend and Clarkson guessed Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” immediately, beating Shelton to the punchline. Clarkson threw the win in Shelton’s face, stating, “It feels good!”
And Shelton replied, “Before I even had time!”
