Blake Shelton + Gwen Stefani Get Spoofed on ‘SNL,’ and It’s Pretty Spot-On (Just Kidding)
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are already all over magazines and the internet, so why not give them their own reality show? Credit Saturday Night Live with the great idea — the show spoofed the couple on Saturday night, dreaming up a hilarious new E! show called Down Home With Blake & Gwen to be sandwiched between two Kardashian series’.
“They’re just like us!” an SNL narrator boasts as a butler enters Stefani and Shelton’s dining room to serve them dinner. But before he bites into his meal, ‘Shelton’ — portrayed by actor Luke Null — breaks into song.
“I love you, girl,” he sings as faux Stefani, played by Melissa Villaseñor, attempts to harmonize. It’s an extremely awkward short clip giving us a peek at what the couple’s private life probably doesn’t look like.
Stefani didn’t mind being made fun of, it seems, as she posted a photo of their dopplegangers on Instagram with a few laughing emojis:
In true reality, Shelton is spending time on NBC’s The Voice, which is in the Blind Auditions stage. Stefani’s red chair is occupied by Miley Cyrus this season. Both artists are releasing new music — his, a country album and hers, a Christmas album — this fall. The first single from Shelton’s Lake Texoma, “I’ll Name the Dogs,” has him singing about marriage, proposing to his love, “You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs.”
He even invited Stefani’s sons to appear in the video for the song, in which Shelton plays a wedding singer.
