Well, of course: Shelton and Stefani sang it on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in October! So naturally, the country singer couldn't help adding: "Gwen sang it to me on 'The Tonight Show' one night, so ..."

Hard to keep from laughing on "The Voice" once the happy couple start their flirting.

Fellow coaches Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams were in stitches, meanwhile.

"Wow," noted Williams, laughing.

Fortunately, Stefani was able to bring things back to the point at hand. "Definitely better than the version we did on Fallon, for sure, 100 percent," she said.

It's not like she's always able to remain calm and collected around her sweetie. Earlier, when the coaches took the stage, she ran straight into his arms for a hug.

"The Voice" is next on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. on NBC.
