Gwen Stefani will replace Christina Aguilera on The Voice this coming season!
According to a source for Us Weekly, Stefani's "contract is now done" for the upcoming eighth season, which begins filming in June. Producers started looking for a replacement for Aguilera as soon as the news broke in February that she was pregnant, but it was her choice -- not theirs! Apparently NBC wanted Xtina to stay on the show, but she ultimately decided that it was going to be too much for her.
Gwen gave birth to her third son, Apollo in February, and after giving a surprise performance at Coachella last weekend, it looks like she's ready to rock and roll again!
Last month NBC confirmed that Pharrell Williams will be a judge for the upcoming season, and while we're pretty sure Adam Levine will be back, there's still at least one more open seat. Wonder who's gonna snag that?
