Interesting timing! It looks like Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani didn’t rise to their feet after his ex Miranda Lambert took the stage to perform “It All Comes Out in the Wash” at the 2019 CMAs in Nashville on Wednesday, November 13. However, an eyewitness tells In Touch exclusively the power couple gave Reba McEntire a standing ovation “right after.”
“Blake and Gwen stayed seated for Miranda’s performance,” the onlooker tells In Touch. To be fair, it should be noted how the insider also said that only “half of the people” in the front actually stood up at the time.
Yet, Blake, 43, and Gwen, 50, had an entirely different reaction after Reba, 64, rocked the house with a show-stopping performance of her single “Fancy.”
Miranda, 36, brought her A-game for the awards show and she appeared to be having a blast while putting on an incredible performance of the hit track, which is speculated to be inspired by her split from Blake.
“It’ll all come out, all come out in the wash / Every little stain, every little heartbreak / no matter how messy it got / You take the sin and the men and you throw ’em all in / And you put that sucker on spin,” she sang in front of the audience at the Bridgestone Arena.
As far as Miranda’s reaction to Blake’s performance, “she was bopping around a bit to the tune, but not so much her husband,” the source tells In Touch exclusively. “Almost everyone gave a standing ovation when Blake finished but they did NOT stand. Everyone else in their row did. They did clap though. But did not stand.”
The “Mama’s Broken Heart” songstress — who was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year — was joined by her beau, Brendan McLoughlin, for the special occasion. Miranda and her hubby wowed on the red carpet before heading into the venue for their big night.
Blake and Gwen, on the other hand, weren’t able to hit the red carpet because they got stuck in traffic on the way. Luckily, the pair made it in time to see the “God’s Country” crooner win the trophy for Single of the Year!
