Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani debuted their new duet on The Voice Monday night. The performance shot the single, "Go Ahead And Break My Heart", straight to the top of the iTunes country chart...something Blake Shelton didn't expect when he started writing the tune. In fact, the country crooner had only one thing in mind when he penned the song.
"When I originally started writing this song that we're performing tonight, I was only trying to impress Gwen," Shelton told ET prior to Monday's performance.
"I started this song and wrote about half of it and sent it to her and she wrote the other half of it. It was just kind of something for she and I to help us feel better about what we were going through."
The couple's Voice performance was recorded in front of the studio audience an hour before Monday night's live episode aired and was the first time Shelton and Stefani had performed together in public. Shelton admitted that his only concern about performing live with Stefani was that he wouldn't be able to keep from smiling.
"The hardest part was not smiling throughout the whole thing while we're singing it because we can't believe this is happening. We still can't believe this is happening," Shelton said. "It's cool to be witness to something that's this honest and fun."
