Gwen Stefani made a very exciting appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show this November. While there, she talked about her experience being a Coach on The Voice for five seasons and gave a sincere take on the amazing talent she’s seen on the show throughout the years.
When Barrymore asked Stefani what she thinks her outcome would be if she did a Blind Audition herself, the “Hollaback Girl” was honest.
“I would never get a chair turn. There’s no way. No way,” Stefani said. “This is the thing about The Voice, the whole thing is very different than watching someone sing a song. That’s the whole point is that you’re eliminating any of those other sensory things, you’re just hearing the voice. I feel like my voice has been—it’s like a character voice. Some of these singers are so technically incredible that come on the show, they’re so gifted as singers...I don't know if on a show like The Voice I would get a chair turn. I feel like I can get someone to listen [to my voice] on the radio.”
To this, Barrymore said, “It’s so interesting because it’s true: As the viewer, we do get the complete package. And you guys are literally only focused on the voice itself."
