Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Perform 'Happy Anywhere' at ACM Awards from Their Own Bluebird Café

During Wednesday's show, the couple, who have been dating since 2015, performed their duet "Happy Anywhere" in front of a green-screened, virtual Bluebird Cafe from Los Angeles.

"Hey guys, Blake here, and I hope everyone out there is doing their best to stay healthy," Shelton, 44, said ahead of the performance in front of a green screen. "Gwen and I wish that we could be in Nashville tonight, but we couldn't."

"But through the magic of television, voila!" he said as the background turned into the iconic Nashville venue. "Welcome back to the Bluebird Cafe, everybody."

The two lovingly looked into each other's eyes as they sang their duet while sitting down on stools. Stefani, 50, rocked a fringed, white jacket and denim shorts while Shelton wore a navy shirt and strummed an acoustic guitar.

Shelton, who was nominated for four awards, took home the single of the year award for "God's Country."

"Holy cow, single of the year! This is a complete shock and an absolute honor," he said as he accepted the award.

"Thank you to my management and thank you to the fans and thank you Gwen Stefani for continuing to encourage me to keep doing this and keep trying and being my inspiration," he added.

Ahead of the duo's performance, Stefani shared a photoshopped image of her and Shelton during one of his first ACMs.

"#datenight @acmawards w my boo🥰 @blakeshelton gx," Stefani, 50, wrote. She also shared a Boomerang of her look during the performance earlier on Wednesday.

"'Happy Anywhere' with @gwenstefani is coming to y’all live from the @ACMawards..." he wrote. "Get ready and tune in to @cbstv on September 16th at 8/7c to watch!!!! #ACMawards."

This year's awards show, which took place in Nashville for the first time ever, is their third show as a couple. They made a date night out of the 2019 ACM Awards in Las Vegas last April.

Throughout the coronavirus lockdown, Shelton and Stefani have been performing together, most recently singing "Happy Anywhere" on the Today show in July. Up next, they will be returning to their red chairs as coaches on season 19 of NBC's The Voice along with returning stars John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
