But Stefani wasn’t done. She took aim at her now-fiancé Shelton, who she claimed was “burnt out” after 19 seasons on the show and even pulled up a video message from legendary country star Trace Adkins to prove her “support from the country community.”
Shelton was ready to take the heat, though. “I have one spot left on my team, and I’ve been sitting her waiting for what that’s going to be,” he started, before cheekily adding, “It’s been worth the wait, right?”
Despite Stefani’s best efforts, Worth the Wait chose Shelton as their coach. See their full audition below.
