Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are back to work on Season 19 of The Voice. In an interview with ET Canada, Blake talked about being competitive, “It really gives us a chance to go for our throats at an entirely new level. I think you will see once you see the first episode that all the coaches came to win this season.”

He said this about Gwen, “Having her back is literally very comforting and I think to all the coaches, because we just kind of feel like we are all able to just go back to the game that we already know.”

Blake and Gwen reunite with fellow judges John Legend and Kelly Clarkson when the season premiers October 19, on NBC.
