Gwen Stefani Confirms She’ll Join NBC’s The Voice

There's No Doubt the singer will make a fine replacement for Shakira on the talent show

Shakira is out and Gwen Stefani is in as coach on NBC’s hit reality singing show The Voice.

Stefani will join veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton along with other newcomer Pharrell Williams, who is stepping in for Usher.

Former coach Christina Aguilera broke the news on Twitter, welcoming Stefani to her “crazy fam.”

Aguilera left the show to give birth to her first child with husband Matthew Rutler. The new coaches will break in their spinning chairs this fall on the show’s seventh season.
