Gwen Stefani ended her Las Vegas residency this weekend at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater with a few fun surprises.

On Friday night (Nov 5), the singer invited her The Voice team member Carter Rubin, on stage to sing a duet. Carter WON season 19 last fall. The young singer is Gwen’s one and only winner, on the last season she sat on the panel. 

Carter, who just celebrated his 16th birthday with a new pop single, “Horoscope,” released on Universal/Republic records, posted the duet on Instagram.

Gwen calls coaching on The Voice one of the “funnest, weirdest, craziest things I ever did,” adding, I never thought I’d be on TV, and then meet my husband,” she said, referring to Blake Shelton with whom she recently tied the knot.

Carter is all growed up

After the performance, Gwen gushed that Carter just turned 16. And it is pretty amazing, because in the past few months, puberty has been very kind to young Carter. He’s experienced quite the grow up/glow up!
