Gwen Stefani announced via TikTok on Friday that she’ll be back as a coach on the upcoming season of “The Voice.”
She captioned the clip, which featured her and fellow coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton singing along to “Grace Kelly” by Mika, “#Duet this if you’re going to be a Coach on #TheVoice this fall.”
The show’s account confirmed the news, commenting, “TEAM GWEN IS BACK!” while social media staff for NBC’s TikTok page wrote, “Welcome back, Team Gwen!”
The fourth coach for Season 22, which will debut this fall, has yet to be announced. Ariana Grande and Kelly Clarkson were the female coaches last season, and past female coaches include Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Shakira, Alicia Keys, and Jennifer Hudson, who also coached for three seasons of “The Voice UK.”
Stefani’s last stint in the red chair on the NBC competition was during season 19 in 2020, when her contestant, Carter Rubin, won the competition.
Her first time coaching was in 2014’s Season 7. She was a part-time advisor only in Seasons 8 and 10, but coached again in Seasons 9 , 12, 17 and 19.
She and Shelton, whose flirtation played out on live on the set of “The Voice,” began dating in 2015 and were married in July 2021.
Stefani spent a significant chunk of her non-“Voice” time in Las Vegas with her “Just a Girl” residency at the Aladdin Hotel, which ran from June 2018 to November 2021. The dates were extended to make up for shows lost to the COVID shutdown.
Meanwhile, Rubin, who, at 15, became the youngest male winner in the show’s history, returned to “The Voice” in late 2021 for a live performance of his first single, “Horoscope.” In a March Instagram post, he announced he would be opening for Shelton at his Ole Red venue in Orlando, Florida, as part of Rubin’s spring tour with “Lost My Heartbreak” country singer David J.
