The Voice launches its seventh season next week, with Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams joining the well-established buddy comedy that is Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. At a press luncheon for the show earlier this month, the coaches and host Carson Daly—minus Williams—discussed the new group’s dynamic and how Levine and Shelton welcomed the two newcomers into the fold. (Levine claimed to be nice; Shelton said “I’m going to beat you.”) Stefani also revealed she has a great description of Williams up her well-tailored sleeve.

I can’t verify whether there were tears, but the screams were certainly deafening when the judges appeared before the crowd. I’d like to think her all-consuming enthusiasm was amplified because Levine, who went platinum blonde last season, is back to brunette (a welcome return). On this particular day, at least.

Pharrell Williams is set to take control of one of the rotating judges’ chairs when The Voice returns for season 7, but the “Happy” singer is no stranger to NBC’s singing competition.
