As if NBC’s “The Voice” wasn’t giving fans enough of a show with its stellar performances this season, it will also debut a new song on Monday. Current coach Blake Shelton and former coach Gwen Stefani will come together to sing a duet they wrote together live on stage.
After host Carson Daly announced it on Tuesday, Shelton confirmed the news on his Twitter page, just one day after “Voice” contestant Daniel Passino was voted off the show. Next week, the nine remaining artists in the competition will perform for America’s vote, and the two-hour event will be padded with the debut of “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” from Shelton’s forthcoming album “If I’m Honest.”

The song is a collaboration between Shelton and Stefani, who announced in November that they started dating after previously serving on “The Voice” Season 9 as coaches. They wrote the song together in the fall of 2015, and it will go on to be track 9 on the country artist’s album, which hits stores May 20.
As E! Online notes, rumors about a possible collaboration started swirling almost as soon as they confirmed that they were in a relationship. Finally, Stefani took to her own Twitter in April to share a picture showing the back of the album artwork with her name listed on the track.
“This song, I hesitate to brag on it too much, but I really think it’s as good of a song as I’ve ever written in my entire life,” Shelton told Entertainment Tonight. “[It’s] a full-blown duet… It’s a 50/50 performance.”
Fans can tune in to “The Voice” Season 10 to check out the world debut of the track. Meanwhile, the remaining nine contestants will sweat backstage as they wait to perform yet another solo to compete for America’s vote before a single winner is crowned.
