40+ performers. A crew of more than 250 people, from lighting and makeup artists to backup dancers. Seven costume changes—including a quick change into roller skates! The largest soundstage in North America, on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Calif. And Grammy-winning artist Gwen Stefani, amped up and at the top of her game.
Those are just a few of the elements that came together last night as the official music video for Gwen’s new single, “Make Me Like You,” was born on live TV. Shot in a single take during a Grammys commercial break, the video came to life as thousands of fans watched it unfold from different angles on Periscope, Facebook Live and Instagram with the help of special guests Todrick Hall and Meg DeAngelis.

And that little tumble at the end? All planned. Gwen couldn’t resist a little tease in the spirit of live TV.
To add a personal touch, a few members of Gwen’s team made cameo appearances. In the Beauty Parlor scene, the salon is named after Gwen’s hairstylist, Danilo Dixon—that was him doing her touchups. And her stylists, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, can be seen helping her with wardrobe changes throughout the video.
