The Voice Coaches Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton performed at IndyCar Weekend on July 24, the Des Moines Register reports, and fans are still recovering from their stellar shows. Per the outlet, Stefani opened the event on July 24 with a few hits from her No Doubt days, including "Bathwater," "Sunday Morning," and "Underneath It All." Our girl also rocked the crowd with "Rich Girl" and "The Sweet Escape," two iconic songs from her solo career

And get this: Later that night, her husband Shelton closed the weekend with his own next-level set—and he did not disappoint.

"I was literally terrified after two days of this, this being the last day, me being the last guy, y’all would be too tired and go home," he told the crowd, according to the Des Moines RegisterShelton masterfully crooned out a whopping 20 songs, including "All About Tonight," "Sure Be Cool If You Did," and "Honey Bee." Despite his already-impressive set, his fans called for an encore. And like a true champ, he delivered. 

Many were hoping Shelton would bring out Stefani for a surprise duet, but as he said (per Des Moines Register),  "She did her set and went into party mode." Totally relatable! 

Don't worry: Fans will get to see plenty of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani together on The Voice Season 22. They'll both be Coaches alongside John Legend and Camila Cabello. The show premieres Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on NBC.

Until then, watch previous episodes of The Voice now on Peacock and on NBC.
