Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton will likely have all eyes on them at tonight's 2015 CMA Awards. In addition to both gracing the lineup of performers--and both receiving several nominations--there are no planned reunions on live TV. Because of their divorce this summer, however, the two will no doubt be watched rather closely.

In addition to Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's divorce fueling much speculation, Blake Shelton's recent rumored relationship with Gwen Stefani might cause some uncomfortable questions of both parties at the CMAs.

Do you think anyone would be so brazen as to address the proverbial elephant in the room?

Last year Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton attended the CMA Awards as a married couple. Oh, what a difference a year makes.

Both have told reporters since word of their split hit the media in July that they are on amicable terms.

Might that not still be the case in light of the Gwen Stefani rumors?

While a guest last week on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Blake Shelton talked about that ever-looming elephant.

"This year's gonna be awkward at the CMAs, speaking of jokes," he said. "Because...it's such a family. Everybody there is friends. There's gotta be one about me and Miranda. [Host] Brad Paisley is not doing his job if he doesn't look down there and go 'Ha ha!' You have to address the elephant in the room."

Do you expect all will go off without a hitch for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton at tonight's CMAs?

You don't think Blake invited his fellow Voice coach along as his guest--do you?
