‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Caterina Scorsones saved her 3 daughters from terrifying house fire

Gwen Stefani’s performance at the 2023 CMT Music Awards has been slammed by fans on social media.

During one of country music’s biggest events of the year, the 53-year-old ‘Hollaback Girl’ musician joined forces with Carly Pearce to sing a high-energy rendition of the No Doubt hit song: ‘Just a Girl’.

Stefani sported a white mini dress with red polka dots and matching gloves for the performance, while the 32-year-old ‘What He Didn’t Do’ singer donned an all-black look.

After the duo tore up the stage with their energetic arrangement of the songstress’ 1995 hit, they embraced each other before walking off the stage.

CMT’s official Instagram posted a snippet of the performance with the caption: “We can’t get enough of @gwenstefani and @carlypearce’s ICONIC #CMTAwards performance of ‘Just A Girl’.”

While many people enjoyed seeing the ‘Sweet Escape’ vocalist team up with Pearce to perform her popular song in a different way, longtime country fans had other opinions.

Taking to the comment section on the social media platform, many shared their thoughts, with one disappointed user penning: “Jmo….that was a hot mess. Trying to put a round peg in a square hole….it just don’t fit.”

A fourth user added: “I absolutely love Gwen. This was a disgrace. It was butchered, and it did not belong on Country Music Television Awards.”

And another chimed in: “Crossed genres is a craft. People are negative. No doubt is a ska band. Gwen is no doubt. Let’s not forget Carly is the country. So chill out and let the girls perform. Song’s called just a girl after all.”

According to People, Pearce spoke to the media about her performance with the ‘Rich Girl’ hitmaker and said: “She obviously is married to Blake [Shelton], which I’ve been on tour a few times with him.”

“We’ve gotten to know each other and struck up an unlikely friendship. She asked me to do this because we really are friends outside of this,” she continued.

“She is such a true artist and such a songwriter. I feel like we’ve really bonded over the songwriting, and I’m such a fan,” the ‘I Hope You’re Happy’ musician concluded.
