When The Voice's Jay Allen first auditioned for Season 22, he quickly pit Coaches Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton against each other as they both fought to be his Coach. Now, as we head into the holiday season, the up-and-coming country star is bringing the couple together.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

In a December 18 Instagram post, Allen shared a photo of himself alongside the pair at Shelton's Oklahoma bar, Ole Red. Allen revealed that the duo stopped by a during a recent gig.

"Dang... Blake and Gwen surprised me last night and showed up for my last show of the year at his hometown @olered in Tishomingo, OK," he said. "Icing on the cake, it was sold out and my new in-laws were side stage with all of our Oklahoma family & friends. You can't plan moments like this... 🙏🏼".

Allen—who married his wife Kylie Morgan this past November—eventually chose Stefani as his Coach following an emotional Blind Audition. However, during the Battle Round, Shelton stole the singer from his wife, which prompted Stefani to jokingly call her hubby a "jerk".

"Can I say something before you get me divorced?" Shelton said at the time. "I just wanted to confirm the fact that you're a great singer, and damn it, I had a Steal, so I hit my button. That's what it comes down to." 

Allen was eventually eliminated in the Knockout Round after going up against Kate Kalvach and the season's winner, Bryce Leatherwood. Since appearing on the show, the newlywed Allen released a new single (“No Present Like the Time”), got matching tattoos with his wife, and even performed at a Season 22 The Voice Finale party. 

"A lot of you are kindly asking what’s next for me, so I’ll do my best to answer…" he said after his elimination. "I’m hoping to start releasing both country and Christian songs over the coming months. If you know me, you know my heart is to help others through music. So if you would, please pray for God to open new doors and lead me to be the man, husband, brother, son, friend, advocate, Artist and musician He desires of me. This is not the end, it’s the beginning. Thank you for your love… 🙏🏼".
