Reba McEntire and Gwen Stefani seem to be strengthening their bond more and more as their time as coaches on Season 24 of The Voice progresses. They have become so close that McEntire has even started to incorporate elements of the rock-ska singer’s bold fashion sense into her own looks.

In a new video posted to Twitter, the female coaches can be seen showing off their long acrylic nails while the song “I Love My Nails” by Netta plays in the background. McEntire opted for a white and black checkered design while Stefani went with a champagne chrome color.

“💅🏻💅🏻 twinning with my girl @reba :),” Stefani wrote in the caption. 

Shutting Down Rumors Of A Feud

While all appears to be well among McEntire and her fellow coaches Niall Horan and John Legend, she recently had to set the record straight regarding talk of a possible feud that was brewing behind the scenes between her and Stefani. Rumors sparked after a promotional video that aired at the start of the season found the “Seven Minutes In Heaven” singer speaking about her experience on the show thus far as the only newcomer. 

She joked about the fact that behind the scenes, all is well, but once they get in front of the cameras, some of the coaches’ demeanors seem to shift. 

“Everybody’s just as sweet and kind offstage as they can be. When they come on the stage though, they kinda change their personalities. They’re real mean — especially Gwen,” McEntire said with a serious face before breaking out into laughter.

During an interview with Extra TV, she shut down any rumors of tension on the set of The Voice and even boasted about how she and the “Hollaback Girl” singer have had “such a great time.”

“At first she was so intimidating, and I thought she was being mean to me,” McEntire admits. “And then she said, ‘I just want you to like me,’ and I said, ‘well that’s all you had to say,’ and now we’re best friends.”

This is Reba McEntire’s first time having her own red chair on The Voice, on Season 23, she served as a Mega Mentor for that round of hopeful contestants. Unfortunately, her close friendship with Stefani will not continue into the next season as Stefani was not included in the 2024 panel of coaches.  

However, a new pair of coaches will be joining the show for the brand-new double chair. Dan + Shay have been tapped to take on the role as the first duo to join The Voice in the U.S. version of the show. They will appear on Season 25 alongside John Legend, Reba McEntire, and Chance the Rapper. 

McEntire previously admitted to Country Now and other outlets that she was “thrilled” when she found out Dan + Shay would be joining the team. Since they have already begun the process of taping for the next season, the country music icon had a bit of insight to share as to how the pair have been doing so far on set.

“They’re great. They’re so good at their notes,” the Oklahoma native shared confidently. 

“Dan being a producer/writer knows music inside and out. Shay’s such a wonderful singer and he’s got that knack of sharing his expertise but also experience of how he got to where he is today,” she said, continuing to boast about the new coaches. “So they’re great coaches and I just love hanging out with them. I’ve loved being around them and their family and to do it now on The Voice is icing on the cake.”

With new episodes airing every Monday and Tuesday night on NBC at 9/8c, viewers can continue to watch Reba McEntire and her fellow coaches guide their teams in hopes of making it to the finale.
