“The Voice” coach and music superstar Gwen Stefani is back for season 22 of the competition show. It’s her first season since marrying fellow coach Blake Shelton, which has set up a whole new set of emotions for Stefani.

Stefani and Shelton got married in July 2021 five years after meeting on the set of “The Voice” during Stefani’s first season on the show. Season 22 will be their first time competing against one another since tying the knot.


Stefani Says She Was ‘Nervous’ to Return to ‘The Voice’

Stefani shared that she was nervous to return to her spot on “The Voice,” she told E! News ahead of the premiere.

“I was really nervous to come back this season, being married to Blake,” she said. “I don’t know why. It’d just been a while and I didn’t know what we were gonna act like.”

She said that coming back on the show was “surreal.”

“It was very romantic for me,” she told the outlet. “And then, it was super natural. We never talked about it, we just went and it was perfect.”

The singer also shared that she’s not usually a competitive person, but she does want to win this season of the show.

“I don’t think I’m very competitive as a human being,” Stefani shared during the interview. “I don’t play games outside ‘The Voice.'”

When it comes to fighting on the show, Shelton told E! News that he and Stefani may actually fight more now that they’re married simply because “It’s a lot harder to break up when you’re married.”

“We can have a huge fight about something that happens on ‘The Voice,’ and be like, ‘Alright, we’re not gonna get a divorce over that,'” he said. “So, yeah, you’re willing to push it a little further.”
