Gwen Stefani won't be back as a judge for season 10 of "The Voice," but the pop star will return to the NBC singing competition as a mentor for Team Blake Shelton.

Shelton broke the news during his first on-screen interview alongside Stefani for Access Hollywood, which was published on Wednesday (February 10). "You start thinking who are the ultimate like artists out there that you can get to mentor your team and it's like, wait a minute, this is perfect! And I actually know her, it'll be easy to call her."

It's really no surprise that these two decided to extend their TV time together, especially since Blake said that they "collaborate well together as coaches." 

Gwen dished some compliments right back at her boyfriend mid-interview, emphasizing that "he's very perceptive about voices and he's just really good at what he does. That's why he's a winner and it was really fun to be in there with him and to learn a little bit today."

Considering Blake is nominated for a Grammy in the Best Country Duo/Group performance category for his team-up with Ashley Monroe and Gwen is creating the very first live music video during the ceremony's commercial break, we'll place our bets that we'll see the duo together sometime during the big music night.
