Christina Aguilera has confirmed that Gwen Stefani will join The Voice as a coach.
Rumors that bosses at America’s NBC TV network wanted the singer to replace Aguilera while she takes time off during her pregnancy began to circulate earlier this month, and Aguilera appears to have now confirmed the news.
Aguilera wrote on her Twitter today, “So excited to have you join #TheVoice squad @GwenStefani! Welcome to our crazy fam (family)!”
Pharrell Williams is set to replace judge Cee Lo Green for the next series of the talent show competition, while singers Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are expected to keep their spots on the panel.
The seventh season of the show is due to start filming in June.
