Stefani underwent a painful split from her rocker husband Gavin Rossdale last year, and she has said those experiences inspired her new hit album, “This Is What the Truth Feels Like."
Her boyfriend, country music superstar Blake Shelton, showed his support for her by leading a standing ovation as she accepted her award from fellow musician Pharrell. The three are co-hosts on the singing competition “The Voice.”
“I am so honored to be here, I am so honored to be making music. I am so blessed to be making music that I can share with you and that I can receive your love back,” Stefani said.
The Saturday show was televised Sunday night on Disney Channel, and it featured performances from Ariana Grande, DNCE, Flo Rida, Hailee Steinfeld, Daya and Kelsea Ballerini, among others.
