Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are still dating and are back to working together on season 17 of The Voice. How are things going on set? A source claims to know if how they feel about being back and more.
Gwen Stefani is replacing Adam Levine this season
Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson are all returning for another season. Adam Levine made the shocking move of announcing that he won’t be returning. The good news is that a familiar face will replace him.
Gwen Stefani is back for her another season of the show. She previously met Shelton while coaching and they eventually fell in love. There is a mix of emotions with the change.
“To think that [Adam’s] not going to be there is like bittersweet. And plus, like, being between him and Blake, the amount of laughter, I would have to like stop and massage my face, because it would hurt,” she said on The Talk.
“But it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be exciting. I mean, Blake’s my best friend, so I get to hang out with him at work,” the singer said. “I wanted to come back so bad. I mean, the show is so fun.”
Stefani was competitive before the season started
There was some time between season 16 and 17 for coaches to mentally prepare. Stefani revealed that she has talked about the new season with Shelton at home.
“We’re starting to have pillow talk about it,” she told E! News. “Every season I’ve been on it it’s been a different version of being with Blake. So this is like a different version of it.”
What did Shelton say to her during their talk? “We still gotta beat the competition. I was like ‘got it!'” she said he told her. “There’s not a lot of strategy except for I’m gonna win.”
They reportedly have been having fun on set
The cast has since returned to set for the new season. Stefani posted a picture of being back in her trailer and wrote “Back at @nbcthevoice today!!!!!! So many amazing memories in this trailer. Life-changing. So grateful to be back. So excited.”
It sounds like things are still going strong between them. A source told People how the couple has been acting while working as coaches.
“They’re coming up on their four-year anniversary, but Blake and Gwen still act like lovebirds,” a source said. Being back seems to be good for them.
“They’re really happier than ever, and being back where they first fell in love has been fun for them,” said the insider. “They can’t believe how quickly time has flown by, and their relationship is very solid. Blake worships her, and Gwen feels very secure with him.”
The source said the pop singer is picking up where she left off. “It’s like she never left,” said the source. “Her kids also love going to set.”
Fans will soon get to see the couple along with the other coaches back in action soon. The new season will premiere on Monday, September 23 8/7c on NBC.
