'The Voice': Gwen Stefani joins season 7 as coach

No Doubt singer, Gwen Stefani has followed in the lines of Christina Aguilara and Shakira as the latest coach on NBC's "The Voice." The singer hinted at the news early yesterday by posting a picture on her instagram and it was confirmed during last night's live show when host Carson Daly welcomed Stefani and the previous announced Pharrell to "The Voice" family.

Both artitsts will perform on the Monday, May 5th live show.  Stefani will sing her hit "Hollaback Girl" while Pharrell, fresh off an Oscar nomination this year for "Happy," will sing “Come Get It Bae” from his album “Girl.” 

"The Voice" airs Monday and Tuesdays on NBC.

Official Press Release:
 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — April 29, 2014 — Internationally acclaimed solo artist and No Doubt singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani has been named a coach for the upcoming seventh season of NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice.”
A singer and song writer since childhood, Gwen has sold close to 30 Million records worldwide as the front woman for the band No Doubt and as a multi-platinum solo artist. No Doubt’s five genre-blending albums have showcased Gwen’s adept songwriting and poignant lyrics with number one hits including “Don’t Speak”, “Just a Girl”, “Hey Baby” and “Underneath It All”.
After No Doubt’s double-platinum retrospective singles collection The Singles 1992-2003, featuring the hit single “It’s My Life,” Gwen released two multi-platinum selling solo albums. Love.Angel.Music.Baby was released in 2004 with the number one single “Hollaback Girl” which was also the first digital download to sell over one million copies in the United States. The album also spawned the hit single “Cool.” Gwen’s second multi-platinum solo record The Sweet Escape was released in 2006 and featured the hit single of the same name. In 2009, Gwen returned to No Doubt for a 50-plus city North American tour and in 2012, the band released their sixth album Push and Shove which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
In addition to her singing-songwriting career, Gwen is widely recognized as a trendsetter and accomplished designer within the fashion industry. Gwen’s first fashion line L.A.M.B., launched in 2003, is a luxurious collection of clothing, handbags and shoes, defined by Gwen’s innate sense of style which often features a playful juxtaposition between classic Hollywood movie star glamour and more modern street influences. In 2005, Gwen launched cult brand Harajuku Lovers, a playful and pop art inspired line that reflects Gwen’s love of Japanese culture and fashion. Gwen’s most recent fashion projects include DWP (Design With Purpose) the already sold out casual yet luxurious ready-to-wear line that launched in February 2014 and Gx – a line of affordably priced fashion forward accessories that launched in March 2014.
Gwen is also actively involved in her charitable efforts, namely the EB Medical Research Foundation and Save the Children.
“The Voice” is a presentation of Mark Burnett’s One Three Inc., Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
As a way to introduce the two new coaches to viewers, Pharrell — a Grammy Award winner and Oscar nominee — will perform his new single “Come Get It Bae” from his current album “Girl” and Stefani will perform her No.1 single “Hollaback Girl” from her debut solo album, “Love. Angel. Music. Baby” on the Monday, May 5 live telecast.

The television academy announced that the 41st annual awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, June 22 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The ceremony recognizes excellent in all daytime television categories during the former calender year. The Sunday ceremony has yet to find a host or a live broadcast home. It was shown on HLN for the last two years and had home on The CW and on all three networks since the first televised ceremony in 1974.

Exciting races can be expected in several categories, especially the much talked about morning programs.

"Also this year, for the first time, syndicated entertainment news shows like Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood have a chance to compete. And we're also expanding into including Spanish-language programs as long as the shows are produced and shown in the U.S."

The Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys will be handed out on Friday, June 20 at the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
