Playing EXCLUSIVE: 'The Voice': Blake Shelton Tells Gwen Stefani to 'Quit Dropping My Name' During Blind Auditions

Blake Shelton is working on a winning team.

The "Guy With the Girl" singer – and reigning five-time The Voice champ -- is pulling out all the stops as he assembles artists to perform for Team Blake on the show’s upcoming 12th season, and that includes calling out girlfriend Gwen Stefani!

Blake jokingly demands that she "quit dropping my name" after the No Doubt front woman brags to one competition hopeful that she had collaborated on a recent country song with her beau. Elsewhere in ET's exclusive teaser, he urges fellow coach Alicia Keys to "talk about how good looking I am," prompting major giggles from Gwen.

In fact, Gwen can be heard laughing through most of the clip, and even ditches her own red chair at one point to sit with Blake on his. Looks like this couple is already using their relationship to their advantage in the competition!

So much love for these Coaches. 💗 #TheVoice

"Him and Gwen definitely work together," Alicia recently told ET, with Adam Levine wholeheartedly agreeing.

"We'll be driving home at night and I'll be like, 'Do you think I should put these two people against each other?' and he'll be like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah," Gwen explained. "I was like, 'I don't believe you! I think you're trying to trick me right now!'"

"There have been those moments and it is pretty funny," Blake added.
