The Voice Recap: Carson Daly Announces New Coaches Gwen Stefani & Pharrell Williams
It’s officially official!
“The Gwen Stefani thing was the worst-kept secret in Hollywood,” Carson admitted. “But we’re excited to have Gwen. I mean, she’s one of my favorite people in music.”
“She’s just one of the nicest human beings alive,” he continued. “She’s insanely talented. She’s creative on many, many levels. She’s a perfect fit for our family because we like to think we have a very good group of non-egomaniacs who are actually trying to help people. She just fits the bill.”
After Carson got through that bit of business, he moved on to yesterday’s main event: the eliminations.
“The Voice last night was interesting because the bottom three surprised a lot of people,” he explained.
This season, each of the bottom three get one last chance performance before the instant save begins. Kat sang last with a spirited rendition of the Grace Potter song, “Paris (Ooh La La).”
“It’s a great song,” Carson said. “It has good energy. It’s kind of an anthem. The crowd went nuts for it. I think it was kind of obvious.”
“Once Kat got up there, there was almost no question in my mind that she was going to be the one that stayed,” Producer Angie agreed.
