Both NBC and Gwen have confirmed that she will be joining for season 7 of The Voice which starts filming in June!
Usually we’re not too keen about posting rumors anymore, but gossip leaders TMZ are reporting that Gwen has been signed on as a celebrity judge for Season 7 of NBC’s singing competition show, The Voice!
NBC has yet to comment (or anybody from Gwen’s official camp for that matter) so nothing has been confirmed at this time. Though Gwen has said in the past that she wouldn’t be interested in being a judge/coach of any sort, but we could see her doing this sort of thing and it would be HUGE promotion for both her and No Doubt.
Typically TMZ is right on the money with these things so we’ll have to see! Gwen would be joining fellow collaborator Pharrell Williams on the judging panel this season, too.
According to Us Weekly (whom reached out to NBC earlier in the week), said that they hadn’t “made any decisions at this point” for Christina’s replacement for Season 7. So if it’s true, she must have just agreed in the last couple of days!
TMZ — Gwen Stefani’s gonna make good money off Christina Aguilera getting knocked up — TMZ has learned Gwen has signed on to be a judge on “The Voice.”
Multiple sources connected to the show tell us … No Doubt’s lead singer will be on Season 7 … which starts taping in June.
Producers started looking for new blood in February after Christina announced she was pregnant. Makes sense … she’d be 8 or 9 months along by the time Season 8’s battle rounds began.
We’re told NBC wanted Christina to stay during her pregnancy but she’s having a difficult time already and ultimately bowed out.
Gwen’s deal is for one season right now, and we’re told Christina has already signed on to rotate back into her spinning chair for Season 8.
NBC had no comment.
Sources are telling E! Online that a deal for Gwen is “close to being done” for The Voice. Neither NBC or Gwen has yet to confirm or deny. This story has pretty much taken over the internet!
