Gwen Stefani may be competing as a Coach on The Voice this season, but she actually doesn't mind if she loses. In fact, she told People it's "good" for her if her husband and fellow Coach, Blake Shelton, wins this season—and Season 23 next year, which will be the country star's last. That would bring Shelton's total number of wins on the show up to 10.
"It works out really good for me if you win, as well, because then I could be married to the guy that won 10 times," Stefani said to People in response to Shelton saying, "I feel a little pressure [to win]. Nobody wants to finish with eight wins. Ten sounds a lot better. Double digits."
Speaking of double digits, Shelton will end his tenure on The Voice with 23 seasons under his belt. He's the only Coach who's been on the show consistently since the beginning, and fans are still processing the news that he's leaving next year.
“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23,” Shelton said in a statement. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people; you are the best."
He continued, "It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow Coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani! I have to give a huge shoutout to the singers–the ‘Voices,’ who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent, and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their Coach. Lastly, it’s about y’all, the fans, who watch and support these Artists, us Coaches, and everyone at The Voice who are chasing their dreams. It would not happen without you!"
