The four coaches for the upcoming 9th season of the hit NBC reality singing competition "The Voice" have officially been announced and it includes the return of the No Doubt frontlady, Gwen Stefani.

According to the report from Enstars, the "Hollaback Girl" performer will once again replace singer Christina Aguilera in the red chair. The founding coach was replaced in the said TV show several times with Shakira in Seasons 4 and 6 and Stefani in 7 and this upcoming season.

Stefani will join her fellow (Season 7) coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams.

"I can't believe I get to return," the "Sweet Escape" singer said. "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 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," the Maroon 5 vocalist explained.

"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," the country singer chimed in.

"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," the Grammy-award winning artist said.

"The Voice" Season 9 returns to NBC in September.
