THE Voice judge Gwen Stefani stole contestant Ben Allen from fiancé Blake Shelton during the conclusion of Tuesday's episode.
The 51-year-old singer's decision comes after she was slammed for "constantly" calling Blake "dumb."
Tuesday's episode of The Voice ended with Blake, 44, being forced to choose between his team members Ben and trio Worth the Wait during the Knockout Round.
While Ben's performance of Luke Combs' She Got the Best of Me impressed Gwen, Blake chose to save the mother-daughters trio following their rendition of Delta Dawn.
After Ben thanked Blake for previously choosing him to be on his team, Gwen shocked both Ben and Blake as she pushed the steal button and welcomed the contestant onto her team.
Blake appeared to be very happy by his fiancée's decision as he enthusiastically applauded before he walked over to her chair and embraced her in a hug.
While Gwen was initially surprised by Blake breaking social distancing guidelines to approach her, she said: "Oh, we can make out! I forgot."
Speaking of her decision to steal Ben, the No Doubt singer explained: "Ben had one of my favorite performances.
"I feel excited to have country on my team. I'm on country radio right now with Blake Shelton, so it just feels right."
The sweet moment between the couple comes just one night after fans slammed the Hollaback Girl singer for regularly putting down the country singer.
During Monday's episode, fellow judge Kelly Clarkson, 38, told Blake's contestant Ian Fanigan that she was captivated with his “incredible tone” and was “glued to him” in an “inappropriate way.”
After the Stronger singer said she could listen to Ian sing You Are My Sunshine, Blake sarcastically quipped that he was "writing that down."
Gwen then laughed at her husband-to-be and yelled: “Wow, you are so dumb.”
Fans of The Voice took to Twitter to express their anger over Gwen calling Blake the nasty name.
One person tweeted: “Hello Gwen you are great but every season you are on the show blake says something crazy you call him dumb it isnt nice to call anyone dumb.”
Another frustrated fan wrote: “Gwen saying “you’re so dumb” to Blake, your fiancé is dumb and unattractive and you do it ally he time."
Alongside a gif of a baby bathing in money, another viewer wrote: “B***h if I get a coin everytime gwen say you are so dumb to Blake.”
