Gwen Stefani Is Officially The Newest Coach On 'The Voice'
The 44 year-old singer will be debuting on the NBC's singing-talent show, alongside fellow new coach Pharrell Williams, this coming fall.
Its official, Gwen Stefani is the new coach on NBC's singing talent show 'The Voice.'
The 44 year-old will be joining the programme, and the rest of the coaching panel, at the beginning of season seven.
The former No Doubt singer confirmed the news via an Instagram photo of her own version of 'The Voice's' famed hand gesture, with a caption reading, "It's True!"
Stefani will be joining her fellow new coach Pharrell Williams and longtime 'The Voice' stars Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, when the upcoming season debuts this fall.
NBC's official announcement comes just over a week after it was highly speculated that 'The Sweet Escape' singer would be replacing Christina Aguilera's spot on the spinning chairs.
The 33 year-old singer took to Twitter to congratulate Stefani for stepping in during her absence. "So excited to have you join #TheVoice squad @GwenStefani! Welcome to our crazy fam! Kisses- xoxo #blondesdoitbest," she tweeted.
It was widely reported in February that Aguilera was pregnant with her second child, and therefore she will be departing from the show while this takes place. But this will not be permanent, the television network also announced the 'Genie In A Bottle' singer will be returning for season eight.
"Before we start the show, I want to make a very, very big announcement for us here -- hold on, listen! This all just happened moments ago because we're live, and we're very happy to officially announce that two superstars will be joining the next season in these coaches' chairs: Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani will be added to the Voice family," Carson Daly said on Tuesday night's episode. "We're so happy to have them join our ever-growing Voice family. They're both incredible people, insanely talented."
To break into their new gig, Pharrell will perform his new 'G I R L' single, 'Come Get It Bae,' while Stefani will sing 'Hollaback Girl,' which is produced by Pharrell, on the live May 5th episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
