The Voice have been changing judges every season lately with only Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and country singer Blake Shelton holding onto their bright red spinning chairs.
In the upcoming seventh season of the hit NBC singing competition, it was already announced that mega-producer and “Happy” singer Pharrell Williams will be taking the seat that was once occupied by former judge, Cee Lo Green (or Usher).
Last week, talk began that No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani would be taking the place of Christina Aguilera for the upcoming season since she would, reportedly, be eight months pregnant by the time the show begins to air. After a few days of hushed negotiations, Stefani was confirmed to be rounding out the judges’ panel when she posted a picture of her hand on Instagram with a microphone and the peace sign/ “V” symbol.
During last night’s episode of the show, the people behind the show decided that there was no time like the present to start introducing the rookie judges to the large audience watching from both the taping location and from the comfort of their homes.
Stefani made her entrance by performing “Hollaback Girl” which was produced by who else, Pharrell, rocking his new hat. Pharrell then went on to perform his latest single, “Come Get it Bae” which he collaborate with Miley Cyrus on, hence the ridiculous pattern outfits the dancers were sporting.
