“Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life,” read part of the statement. “Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life. Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know.”
Stefani has coached on the show before in Seasons 7, 9, and 12. So she knows what she’s doing and isn’t sick of working with her boyfriend. She revealed why she likes working with him so much.
Stefani said he is her best friend so she likes hanging out with him
The singer is excited to go back to coaching and working with Shelton. She revealed why she loves working with him.
“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.” She added, “I wanted to come back so bad. I mean, the show is so fun.”
Their pillow talk has been coming up with their strategy for next season
The couple is already taking Season 17 seriously and talking about what they’re going to do.
“We’re starting to have pillow talk about it,” Stefani 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.”
She said that the country singer told her, “We still gotta beat the competition. I was like ‘got it!'” The singer said the show can be overwhelming and was honest when it came to strategy. “There’s not a lot of strategy except for I’m gonna win.”
We will have to see if the couple’s game talk will pay off with a win for either of them next season. They will be going up against John Legend, who won last season and Kelly Clarkson.
