Don’t go, Gwen Stefani!
Just days after Blake Shelton admitted he doesn’t want his new girlfriend to leave The Voice, the country singer has made it his mission to keep the No Doubt frontwoman beside him on the show!
Gwen, 46, is taking a break from the reality competition after season nine and will be replaced on the judges’ panel by Christina Aguilera. However, Blake, 39, recently put the pressure on host Carson Daly to add a fifth judge to the series so Gwen can stick around!

“We’ll just address that we love Gwen, we love our coaches,” Carson told reporters prior to The Voice‘s new episode on Monday, Dec. 14, according to [Entertainment Tonight](http://www.etonline.com/news/178074blakesheltoncampaigninghardtokeepgwenstefanionthevoiceseeyounextseason/). “We’re like _Iron Chef around here. Once you’ve been in the kitchen, you’re always welcome back in the kitchen.”
“Anytime you want?” Blake asked Carson, referring to past judges returning to the show. Once the host responded, “Absolutely,” Blake hilariously quipped, “I’ll see you next season, Gwen!”
Here’s to hoping Blake’s campaign for five coaches next season is a success!
