According to many reports, Aguilera will be taking time off from the show to focus on her personal relationships and children, so bringing Gwen Stefani on would be a great replacement.

There has been tons of speculation surrounding Stefani’s possibly joining the team. Many reports said that contract negotiations were the hold up.
4. Adam Levine Commented on the Stefani Rumors

While none of the current judges have commented on the news of Stefani becoming a judge on the show, Adam Levine did post a tweet about it when the rumors first started. A week ago, Levine told Us Weekly:
She would be a really good addition to the show if she were to be on it, but that’s only a rumor as of now.
Levine also gushed about Stefani to Entertainment Weekly:
I’m a huge fan — she’s a wonderful human being, and I love her to pieces. She’s so talented. She’s just great.
5. Stefani Isn’t the Only New Judge on the Show
With Aguilera’s exit and Cee Lo’s exit, the show was in need of more judges. According to Us Weekly:
Pharrell Williams has officially signed on as a coach for season 7 of the show, and original cast members Levine and Blake Shelton have yet to make announcements as to whether or not they’ll return come fall.
What’s really interesting is that Stefani and Pharrell Williams both appeared together on stage at Coachella. Whatever the case, hopefully our favorite bromance doesn’t jump ship. The Voice wouldn’t be the same without Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
