Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton returned to TV screens for Season 12 of The Voice on February 27, but their on-set flirting had fans threatening to turn off.
After taking two seasons away from The Voice as a coach, Gwen was back by her man’s side when Season 12 of the NBC singing show kicked off, but it turns out that not everyone was so happy to see Stefani and Shelton side by side, as their romance and PDA had some viewers reaching for the remote.
A number of viewers took to social media to voice their opinions during The Voice’s Season 12 premiere opener, with some even threatening to turn off the series to avoid Blake and Gwen’s flirting that played a big part in the first episode of the popular NBC series.
“If the Blake and Gwen relationship is going to be this annoying every episode I [probably] won’t watch The Voice anymore,” Twitter user @claireecruz5 tweeted out of The Voice’s Season 12 premiere, while @j_alatoree added, “Blake and Gwen’s relationship has ruined The Voice for me. They are already annoying me!”
“When u realize that it’s going to be a long season of The Voice if Blake and Gwen keep flirting every 5 seconds #TheVoice,” Twitter user @makennaacypert wrote on the 140-character site during The Voice’s Season 12 premiere, alongside photos showing her turning off the show after seeing Shelton and Stefani’s gushing interactions.
