Christina Aguilera won't return for season nine of The Voice, but will once again be replaced by Gwen Stefani instead. Stefani appeared on season seven of The Voice.
Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams have all signed back on to The Voice, and will round out the season nine panel of coaches on the popular singing competition show.
Gwen Stefani issued a statement about replacing Christina Aguilera on Wednesday.
"I can’t believe I get to return to The Voice," she said. "It’s so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I’m looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake and Pharrell. I love those guys."
