Gwen Stefani talks about how she feels when The Voice contestants perform her songs
While serving as a coach on The Voice, Gwen Stefani is speaking up about how she concerns about scenarios in which rivals steal one of her songs.
During an interview on Friday’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the singer of Rich Girl said she enjoys when a contender decides to sing one of her songs. But occasionally, things can start to seem a little off.
I’m incredibly excited, even if John Legend is said to not push his button anytime one of his songs is performed. The 52-year-old Stefani said of her fellow coach, “They’re doing your song.” “And all we’re really saying is,” John, you need to click your button.” I assume he becomes extremely analytical and simply becomes exhausted.
But she added that others had already completed hers. They perform covers all the time on the program, so I can’t say exactly when, but I do remember that during a season when I wasn’t competing, someone covered the song “Cool,” and Blake Shelton screamed, “Oh my gosh, they performed your song! It was a totally strange take of it, and it’s wonderful.”
The lyrics can sometimes sound too personal, and if they use all these fancy vocal effects, I find myself thinking, “Oh… That’s really unusual, she noted, but she made it apparent that she truly finds it attractive.” There is only one problem: I love listening to them perform it.
Stefani announced her return to the program in May in a TikTok video. In the social media video, Stefani can be seen singing along to Mika’s Grace Kelly alongside her husband Shelton, 46, and Legend, 43. “#Duet this if you’re going to be a Coach on #TheVoice this autumn,” read the post.
Stefani made her coaching debut for The Voice’s season 7 in 2014; she returned as a coach for season 9 after serving as a part-time advisor the previous year. Later, the show revealed that Camila Cabello would be the fourth coach.
