The Season 11 premiere of NBC’s hit singing reality competition show, TheVoice, is just a month away, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that returning judge Blake Shelton is not going to take no for an answer when it comes to bringing Gwen Stefani back on the show!
According to a network insider, “Blake is seriously pushing for the higher-ups to offer Gwen a contract for Season 12!”
“Blake told his bosses that they would be really foolish if they didn’t!”
As first reported by Radar, the 40-year-old country crooner and Stefani, 46, fell for each other while both were judges on The Voice two seasons ago.
When Stefani was replaced by Christina Aguilera, 35, as a judge for the show last season, Shelton took Stefani under his wing as a mentor for Team Blake.
But when Aguilera was replaced by newbie “Wrecking Ball” singer, MileyCyrus, instead of Stefani, the musical couple were livid!
“The Voice executives already know that Gwen and Blake together is ratings gold because they saw it last season,” the insider told Radar.
“Right now Blake, Gwen and the bosses are in a back and forth bidding war over their contracts because the bosses want them to sign over exclusivity for certain thingshttp://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/gwen-stefani-blake-shelton-engaged-married-wedding-the-voice-producers-hope/ such as anything to do with their possible upcoming engagement,” said the source.
“They’re discussing a contract for him, a contract for Gwen and an added joint contract for whatever they require of them as a couple.”
