President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama weren't the only two to turn heads during Tuesday night's final state dinner for the Commander-in-Chief. Everyone's favorite musical power couple, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, took to the stage to serenade the crowd (and each other) with their duet "Go Ahead and Break My Heart," PEOPLE reported.

 

Gwen, who received a warm welcome from President Obama onstage, provided the musical entertainment for the evening with hits including "Sweet Escape." Blake then joined Gwen, guitar in hand, to croon their lovely duet.

The couple was seated at the same table but at opposite ends, according to PEOPLE. After a dinner by celebrity chef Mario Batali, Gwen and Blake were spotted rubbing elbows with another power couple, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his girlfriend, Sandra Lee (photo above).

Tuesday was a big day for Gwen and Blake. It was also announced that Gwen will return to The Voice, the show where she first met her boyfriend, as a coach in Season 12, along with Blake, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys, who made her debut as a mentor in Season 11, which is currently airing on NBC. The couple began dating in late 2015, and wedding bells are reportedly in their future.

However, not everyone is excited about Gwen and Blake's romance.
