Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got married in July this year and fans couldn’t help but wonder if their friend and fellow The Voice judge, Adam Levine, would be at the special occasion as their wedding singer.
In April, the Maroon 5 singer joking revealed the reason why he wouldn’t be singing at the big event. He appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he jokingly revealed, “I don’t support their marriage. She’s so cool, and he’s not.”
Ellen DeGeneres told him that Blake is “very funny and very smart” to which Adam reluctantly added, “He’s vaguely charming.”
He continued, “I’ll go to the wedding, and I’ll object. I will probably not be invited, now that I’m saying this on live television, but I’ll be there, somehow.”
More than five months after the couple tied the knot, Blake himself said that those words were the reason why Adam wasn’t invited to the wedding. The country singer and The Voice judge joked about it during the latest episode of the daytime show. He said, “That’s the reason we didn’t invite him to the wedding,” adding, “is that interview he did on your show.”
The question on everyone’s mind is, what if that interview didn’t happen? Would he have considered Adam as their wedding singer? Blake answered, “Well, we’ll never know.”
The singer didn’t stop there. He joked, “I purposely did not invite Adam Levine to my wedding—and I think it’s funny.”
This didn’t come as a surprise at all because they planned on having a very simple wedding in the first place as revealed by Gwen on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She said, “I definitely would love to have Adam sing at our wedding, but you know, the thing is, is that I feel like we’re not gonna have a wedding band. I feel like we’re just gonna go with a playlist. We’re keeping it very simple—really simple.”
The couple had a very small guestlist for their wedding. Blake estimated that they only have around 30 people which already included their wedding planner and photographer. He also admitted that he let Gwen decide all the details of their wedding claiming that it was all her idea and vision.
