Gwen Stefani and Carly Pearce was the crossover we never knew we needed!
At Sunday's CMT Music Awards in Austin, Texas, Stefani and Pearce joined forces for a fun, high-energy performance of the No Doubt hit "Just a Girl."
Stefani, 53, opened the performance, donning a white mini dress with red polka dots and matching gloves, black heels, fishnet tights, a pearl necklace and two buns in her hair.
She was joined by Pearce in the second verse, who wore an all-black look complete with a corset and large bow on the side. The two musicians hugged each other after singing Stefani's 1995 hit.
Ahead of the ceremony, Pearce, 32, spoke to CMT about the performance and her relationship with Stefani. "She obviously is married to Blake [Shelton], which I've been on tour a few times with him, and we've gotten to know each other and struck up an unlikely friendship," she said. "She asked me to do this because we really are friends outside of this."
"She is such a true artist and such a songwriter," continued Pearce. "I feel like we've really bonded over the songwriting, and I'm such a fan."
The performance marked Stefani's debut at the award show. She last appeared on the show in 2020 alongside husband Blake Shelton, however, to accept their win for collaborative video of the year for their song "Nobody But You."
Meanwhile, Pearce is nominated for performance of the year alongside Ashley McBryde and LeAnn Rimes. She is also nominated for female video of the year for her song "What He Didn't Do."
