Stefani returning to The Voice

Gwen Stefani’s return to the US edition of The Voice has been confirmed by NBC.

The Hollerback Girl singer took her place in one of the famous revolving red chairs for the seventh series of the American version of the singing contest. After sitting out season eight for the return of original coach Christina Aguilera, the 45-year-old is set to make her comeback for season nine.

“I'm coming back and am so excited! I can't believe I get to return to The Voice," she said in a statement after network NBC confirmed the news. "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."

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and country star Blake Shelton have been with the show since it began in 2011. Happy singer Pharrell Williams joined at the same time as Gwen and remained while the blonde beauty was on hiatus.

And the guys can’t wait to have Gwen back by their sides.

“Adam, Gwen, Pharrell and I had a blast together in season seven and I'm excited we're back together again,” Blake said in his own statement. “They are all so talented but I'm pretty damn excited about another winning season for Team Blake.”

Meanwhile a source told E! News that Christina will return for season 10 but wished to spend some time with her fiancé Matt Rutler, and her two children.

“Right now she's focusing on being a mom and new music," the insider told the outlet.
