Gwen Stefani Makes It Official; Joins “The Voice” As No Doubt Fans Are Conflicted

In a move that was found out weeks ago and was a worst kept secret during that time, Gwen Stefani confirmed she will be a judge on the next season of "The Voice" and will appear on the singing contest show next week!

NBC was trying to hold off the news for 2 more weeks to announce for their Fall Line-Up but with "The Voice" having Gwen on the show next week, they announced it early. Well...earlier than the announcement leak from a few weeks ago.

No Doubt fans are conflicted about the news as it will delay a new album that has been getting worked on over a year and also that means no tour dates for the foreseeable future. Towards the season finale of next year though, "The Voice" could be a platform for No Doubt to release new music and even launch a tour on the heels of that. Time will tell and No Doubt fans will just have to be patient.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Doesn't really hurt to have Gwen on a high profile show like that. It is helping Adam Levine stay relevant and helped ressurect Christina Aguilara and Shakira of late.

Oops! Adam Levine Defends His “I Hate This Country” Comment On “The Voice”

Adam Levine File Photo

Adam Levine had 2 of his "students" eliminated from "the Voice" which made him declare "I hate this country" into his microphone. Said the comment because he was upset right? That is understandable...right?

Adam had this to say to the press:

"Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night's elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results.”

"I'm sad . . . and a little pissed off, to be honest. I was shocked, actually. I think they all gave us really strong performances.

All of that is understandable.

Then Adam took to Twitter, the new place where people put their foot in their mouths and said it was a joke and people didn't catch the humor of it. Which one is it Levine?

In all honesty, one of the girls that was eliminated sand with Michael Jackson and is featured on the "This Is It" movie. She was the person who was supposed to win it all. If you watch enough of these shows, you get the one that is usually supposed to win it all, doesn't. Even if you hate this country or not.-DocFB

Diagnosis: It was a comment that wasn't worth defending, jokingly or not.....
