Superstars Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Mickey Guyton came together for an unforgettable show for night two of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest on Friday (February 11), which was held at the Crypto.com Arena in the heart of Downtown LA. bringing a blend of both country and rock to a sports-filled weekend.
Bringing both a blend of country and rock to a sports-filled weekend, the crowd was buzzing to see celebrity it couple Shelton and Stefani take the stage with budding songstress Guyton.
Guyton, who will be performing the National Anthem at the Big Game this evening (February 13), kicked off the festivities in a stunning LBD with matching thigh-high boots to perform her hit single “Remember Her Name.” Live shows have been rare and far between due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the 38-year-old singer expressed her excitement for returning to the stage by wearing a huge smile that beamed from ear to ear.
Singing fan favorites including “Different,” “Lay It On Me” and “Smoke,” Mickey took time to point out that everyone in country music constantly writes a song about every type of alcohol. She also clarified that no one has sung about rosé, which inspired her to write a song about it.
Before her time on stage was complete, the award-winning artist sang her song “All America,” which is a tribute to all of the beautiful faces in America — including the audience inside the Crypto.com Arena.
Up next was the “Hollaback Girl” herself, Gwen Stefani. Mrs. Blake Shelton stepped out with an electric performance that had the crowd dancing along from beginning to end.
Wearing a bright yellow zebra print outfit that perfectly fit the vibe her opening song “The Sweet Escape,” Stefani rocked out so much that she ran into a wardrobe malfunction onstage. The fringe skirt she was wearing that was attached to her zebra romper had fallen, leading her stage crew to help put her skirt back on. But that didn’t stop the entertainer from continuing to deliver a show stopping set.
Performing iconic tracks like “Underneath It All” and “Just A Girl” from her band No Doubt, Stefani changed to a black and white checkered ensemble before closing out with her legendary song “Hollaback Girl.”
Gwen’s show-stopping performance was followed by headliner and husband Blake Shelton, who came to the Crypto.com Arena with one intention in mind. “I came here tonight to play country music,” Shelton told the audience as he walked on stage. The country superstar did just that, as he kicked the night off with “Neon Light” and “Honey Bee.”
It didn’t take long for Blake to mention his leading lady, who he said was the real star of the show. “Who in the hell had the idea for me to go on after Gwen Stefani?” Shelton asked the crowd. “The next part of the show is gonna suck compared to what you just experienced. … The last thing I need is to wake up tomorrow and read the damn L.A. Gazette or whatever we have here and it says ‘Gwen Stefani steals the show.’ So y’all can tell I’m struggling.”
Shelton didn’t struggle for long, as he brought Gwen to the stage to sing their stunning duets “Happy Anywhere” and “Nobody But You” before belting out to some of his biggest hits including “Austin,” “Boys Round Here,” “Come Back As A Country Boy” and more. The Oklahoma native successfully brought some redneck country to Los Angeles, leaving the crowd roaring for more as he walked offstage.
Friday’s show was the second night of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest that was held at the Crypto.com Arena in downtown Los Angeles. The three-day concert series kicked off on Thursday (February 10) with Machine Gun Kelly and Halsey and wrapped on Saturday (February 12) with Miley Cyrus and Green Day.
