Gwen Stefani Returning To The Voice For Season 9
Gwen Stefani is returning to “The Voice” for season 9 while Christina Aguilera takes a breather. Stefani joins Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who have been coaches since the show began, and Pharrell, who’s been a coach for the last three cycles, and even had his first win last season with 16-year-old Sawyer Fredericks.
A rep for Aguilera explains to Gossip Cop that the singer “doesn’t do back-to-back seasons,” but wouldn’t comment beyond that. A source connected to the show, however, tells us exclusively that Aguilera will definitely back back for season 10.
Anyway, Stefan told Buzzfeed, “I’m coming back, and I’m so excited! I can’t believe I get to return to ‘The Voice.’ It’s so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I’m looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake, and Pharrell. I love those guys.” Shelton added, “Adam, Gwen, Pharrell and I had a blast together in Season 7, and I’m excited we’re back together again. They are all so talented but I’m pretty damn excited about another winning season for Team Blake.”
Meanwhile, Pharrell said in general, “I am grateful to have a role on the show amongst such an incredible grouping of great people. Looking forward to another season of talented artists.” And Levine noted, “Time after time, coming back, it honestly feels like the first day of school. It’s become a second family for me, and I’m always so excited to come back to it.” – Adam Levine
