Anyone singing their pretty little heart out on next season of "The Voice" on NBC might just see a familiar face turn around in one of those big red chairs. Rejoice, Team Gwen fans! The veteran coach, who we previously saw in season 9, will be returning to the singing competition as a coach for Season 12. Upon her return, Stefani will take the seat of new coach Miley Cyrus. But does that mean that Cyrus is taking her final bow on "The Voice?" Not quite. Cyrus, who previously served as a key adviser and joined as a new coach alongside Alicia Keys in "The Voice" season 11, will swap out with Stefani again for season 13. The rest of the judges haven not yet been announced for season 13, but it has been confirmed that host Carson Daly will return as well.

The show's star-studded past

It has not been confirmed whether long-term coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will sign on for season 13, but fans are confident that "The Voice's" OG pair will remain on the show in some capacity. The pair has been part of the coaching panel from the beginning of the show. "The Voice" is no stranger to celebrity talent. It debuted in April 2011 with an all-star cast of coaches; Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, and of course, Levine and Shelton.

Since then, celebrity coaches for the show’s signature swiveling red chairs have also included Usher, Shakira, and Pharell Williams.    

Not just a job for Stefani and Shelton

Stefani joined the show in season 7 and continued as a coach in season 9. It was on the show that she met her current boyfriend, Blake Shelton. Stefani and Shelton started dating after their divorces from respective exes Gavin Rosdale and Miranda Lambert; they met on set, and the sparks flew.

The two confirmed their romance and sang a love-filled duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” on "The Voice" last May. Show creator and producer Mark Burnett expressed his joy that the pair, who came on to do “a fun singing show,” found such deep love. Fans can certainly look forward to plenty of precious and adorable moments between the two lovebirds next season, and hopefully some more duets!
