Gwen Stefani to Replace Christina Aguilera on ‘The Voice’
NBC’s ‘The Voice‘ will be welcoming a new face to the judges panel for season seven: Gwen Stefani! Stefani will be sitting and slamming buttons in Christina Aguilera‘s chair, who is currently pregnant with her second child and will be taking time off to care for the new baby. Season seven is scheduled to begin filming in June and run through the fall 2014 television season.
Stefani is the second rookie added to ‘The Voice’ for next season. Earlier this month, it was announced that Pharrell Williams will be replacing Cee Lo Green, who announced in February that he will no longer be involved with the show. No official announcements have been made about Adam Levine or Blake Shelton yet, both of whom have been with the show since its debut in the spring of 2011.
Us Magazine reports that the deal with Stefani is “done” and is only for one season at the moment. Aguilera is expected to return in season eight which will debut in the spring of 2015. She previously took time off from ‘The Voice’ in 2013 to concentrate on family matters but returned for season six, which aired last fall.
So tell us, ‘The Voice’ fans: are you excited to see Gwen face off with the other judges?
