There hasn't been any hollaback from NBC about whether or not Gwen Stefani will sit in one of The Voice's big red chairs next season, but the No Doubt lead singer and fashion icon was a hot topic on the red carpet Monday after Season 6's first live show.
"She's one of the great female artists of our generation," host and executive producer Carson Daly told TVGuide.com. "She's a mom, she's a strong figure, she's got a great individuality. I think she'd be a great fit to our team. She's also one of the nicest people in the business. She's got a great reputation for that and that goes a long way as well."
Adam Levine was equally effusive about the possibility of Stefani signing on for Season 7. "If there's any truth to the rumors, I'd just be really excited because I'm a huge fan. I think she's a wonderful human being. I love her to pieces. She's so talented."
Although Blake Shelton said he's never actually met her, he also extended open arms (kind of). "I look forward to beating anybody on the show," he said with a laugh.
Daly said that Stefani will be well-prepared for that playful banter because of her many years working day in and day out with three men in No Doubt. "I know she can handle the men of The Voice," he said.
Although neither Levine nor Shelton are confirmed for the fall, Stefani would be alongside at least one male: fellow new addition Pharrell Williams, who is in the midst of a banner year with memorable performance at the Oscars of his inescapable hit "Happy," multiple Grammy wins, a book and that tearful appearance on Oprah's Master Class. "I don't know how we got him. He's been on our list for awhile though. I think he might have said, 'Hey, now's the right time,'" Daly said. "He's a really great, humble guy and think he'll be a great addition too."
After welcoming back last spring's new coaches, Shakira and Usher, for a second spin this year, Daly is excited to add even a few more faces to The Voice family. "I like it. I think America likes it. I think people understand that on this show, the coaches are all very established musicians. They're TV coaches second and they need to tour and so we have this revolving door and once you have a red chair, you have it for life and I think people get it," he said. "It's worked out for us so far."
