NBC’s ‘The Voice’ season 9 names Adam, Blake, Gwen & Pharrell as coaches

MUMBAI: Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams will be the season nine coaches and Carson Daly as host for NBC’s musical competition series The Voice.


The ninth season will begin in September.


“With such an astounding group of coaches at the peak of their musical ingenuity and Carson returning as our host, we are thrilled for what season nine will bring. The expertise and camaraderie of this panel will provide an immeasurable experience for the artists and must-see entertainment for all who are watching,” said NBC Entertainment president, alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy.


Levine and Shelton have been Voice coaches since the series inception in 2011. Season nine will mark the third season for Williams and the second for Stefani.


“I can’t believe we’re already on the ninth season. Time after time, coming back, it honestly feels like the first day of school. It’s become a second family for me and I’m always so excited to come back to it,” Levine said.


Shelton added, “Adam, Gwen, Pharrell and I had a blast together in season 7 and I’m excited we’re back together again. They are all so talented but I’m pretty damn excited about another winning season for Team Blake.”


Stefani said, “I’m coming back and am so excited! I can’t believe I get to return to ‘The Voice.’ It’s so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I’m looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake and Pharrell. I love those guys.”


“I am grateful to have a role on the show among such an incredible group of great people and am looking forward to another season of talented artists,” Williams said.


Daly said, “For eight seasons The Voice has enlisted world-renowned coaches, amassed the most talented singers ever on TV and we are just warming up! Season nine will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible when you have a dream. I’m so honored to continue to be front and center of this consistently exhilarating show.”
