During an interview with Today's Natalie Morales, the morning co-host couldn't avoid asking one question about the musicians' off-camera relationship.
"Is it good to just be out in the open now?" she posed to the lovebirds, who unfortunately remained mum on the subject altogether and just laughed instead.
Meanwhile, Shelton's BFF and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine came to the rescue as their scapegoat, urging Morales to drop the subject with an improvised song with a single line of lyrics—"Next question."
Not even Shelton's friend Trace Adkins could avoid poking fun at his inability to keep his dating life on the lowdown, telling the audience while introducing the country crooner at the 2015 CMT Artist of the Year Awards ceremony, "Not a whole lot this guy can't do, other that keep his love life private."
