Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will be working in separate timezones while they ring in the new year.

Unfortunately, Shelton is among the star-studded list of singers scheduled to perform during New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash, which will air on CBS Television Network and stream on Paramount+ on Sunday, December 31, while Stefani will be participating in festivities across the country in Las Vegas.

"It’s funny because I was going to be at his show and then Vegas called and wanted me to be in Vegas. Last year I did Vegas and I was kind of like, ‘remind me never to do Vegas again,'" the "Rich Girl" hitmaker quipped, as she explained, "'cause you kind of sometimes just want to have your own… not be the host."
