As first reported by Us Weekly, Blake Shelton’s team on the upcoming tenth season of “The Voice” will be advised by none other than recurring coach and his real-life girlfriend Gwen Stefani. This is the sort of move that shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone; Blake and Gwen tried not to be too public with their dating life this past fall, but that’s much more out in the open now and something that the show could play up. Blake probably wants chances to spent time with her, while in turn NBC probably wants the ratings boost that will come from the two getting a chance to work together.
Now that we’ve said all of this, we do personally contend that we would much rather not have advisers or really even Battle Rounds at all. The show edits these like they are the most important thing ever, and they drag on and on like nobody’s business. By the time we reach the end of them, it is difficult not to stare at your watch, wondering when everything is going to come to an end. Alas, the producers have made no effort to innovate these rounds.
The new season of “The Voice” is going to premiere on NBC come February 29, and our guess is that we’re going to have a whole lot more news when it comes to the show moving into the coming weeks. With that in mind, stay tuned for further updates!
