During season 11 of The Voice, Adam’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, gave birth to their first child, Dusty Rose Levine. Singer John Legend, who also recently welcomed a baby girl, will team up with Adam Levine this season as an adviser. When asked why he keeps returning as a judge on The Voice, Adam said, “It’s great to work with these guys and try to get them to win the show, which is obviously the end goal when you’re on The Voice.” He further added, “But it’s kind of more amazing just to work with these people and help them get to wherever they’re going to get, whatever stage in the competition they get to … Winning is great. And trust me, I hate the fact that Blake won so many. But winning isn’t always the point. And I think that as long as we do our jobs and teach them what we know, and help them along, honestly, we win too.” Adam has been a part of The Voice since it first aired, with Javier Colon, season 1 of The Voice winner, was on his team. Adam Levine also coached season 5 winner Tessanne Chin and season 9 winner Jordan Smith.

Alicia Keys has been a part of The Voice since season 11. During a teaser for the show, Blake is seen saying, “I have to sit next to Alicia, and you don’t want to disappoint her, let me tell you. Because those same eyes that are charming and hypnotic will also burn a hole right through the side of your skull.” Alicia Keys has called on DJ Khaled to be her advisor. Team Alicia had some very strong contestants last season and almost took home the prize. We cannot wait to see how far she will go this season!

This season will be fun to watch as couple Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are competing against each other. Season 12 of The Voice premiered last night (February 27) and it looks like the two are ready for some healthy rivalry. Though, the two are still supportive of each other on the show. When Josh Hunter, otherwise known as JChosen, picked Gwen Stefani to be his coach, Blake Shelton stood up to applaud his fiancé’s win. In a casual behind-the-scenes chat, Adam spoke about Blake being his corival, however, Gwen was quick to his rescue saying, “I like him so much, I’ll make up for you not liking him.” Recently on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Gwen revealed, “I love Blake. He’s the most incredible guy. Everybody loves Blake and that’s the thing, there’s no way around it. He’s just a sparkly, happy, amazing person.” Gwen Stefani was also a judge on seasons 7 and 9 of The Voice, appearing on seasons 8 and 10 as an advisor. This season, Céline Dion will be an advisor for Team Gwen.

Like Adam Levine, Blake Shelton has also been a part of The Voice since the first season. He has proven to be a tough competitor as he has won The Voice a total of five times in seasons 2, 3, 4, 7, and 11. Luke Bryan will join the show this season as an advisor for Team Blake. The two are not only top country artists, but are also close friends, so it comes as no surprise that they will work together for season 12 of The Voice.

Though it is heartwarming to see the love between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani on the show, we already love seeing the couple fight for contestants. The Voice Blind Auditions have just begun and we have already seen some amazing talent. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
