Gwen Stefani asked the camera to cut away from her during Monday night’s live episode of The Voice because she began to cry during a powerful performance from one of the final eight contestants.
Rose Short vocal rendition of “I Want to Know What Love Is,” also left coach Kelly Clarkson in tears. Viewers at home were shocked by Stefani’s reaction to the song. When it came time for Stefani to comment on Short’s performance, she was so overcome that she asked The Voice’s team to “cut the cameras.”
“I’m not ready. Oh my God, I’m crying,” Stefani said as she tried to hide her face. “That was unbelievable. I’m so in awe of you. I’m so honored to work with you. Cut the cameras!”
