My Sit Down with The Voice Judges

WHO IS READY FOR THE VOICE TO COME BACK?! It's that time! I recently got to attend a clam bake complete with lobster rolls and crustacean-themed decorations on the set with the judges and Carson. I've interviewed all of the guys, and it's always a cool experience, but OMFG I sat at a table with the epitome of amazing - Gwen Stefani! Like, I couldn't stop staring at her. She's so beautiful. The amount of bling she had on was insane, She's totally modest about how kickass she is. Fun fact: I was born in Anaheim, so we're from the same town. Basically BFFs. And if that weren't enough, I got to look each of the judges in the eyes and ask questions and have conversations with these megastars. Dead.

After I snapped out of my starstruck phase I was able to speak actual words to Adam, Blake, Pharrell, Gwen, and Carson. I learned some interesting music-related facts, including:

-Blake has Dolly Parton at the top of his list of mentors to work with on the show.
-Gwen isn't sure that she'd win The Voice if she were a contestant since her voice is so unique. Carson quickly stepped in and pointed out that after four words of "Don't Speak" every judge would turn their chairs.
-Adam, no surprise, said he'd definitely win The Voice if he tried out. Not because he'd be the best, but because he'd work so hard to make sure he became the best.
-Pharrell said his inspiration in the music industry comes from fashion and that plays a big part in his career.
-Carson explained that having rotating judges on the show has always been exciting because The Voice buzz allows for big names to want to get involved.

Overall it was a really incredible experience and I'm excited to watch! Season 9 of The Voice premieres Monday, September 21 at 8/7c. Tune in!

Before I go, once again, the perfect Gwen. She is not just a girl. She is everything! Am I right?
