Gwen Stefani's time is up once again on 'The Voice' since she is being replaced by Nick Jonas. Blake Shelton doesn't seem to be too happy about this and he is letting it be known to everyone. He said Stefani will be returning one day.

How do all of the judges feel about Nick Jonas replacing Gwen Stefani? They all left video messages to let their feelings be known about how they feel about it.

Shelton is already known on the show for being a very competitive judge. Now with Jonas coming on the show, the competition is going to be even more fierce.

Shelton plans on giving Jonas a hard time and actually has already started. In the video message from Shelton, he says, “Nick Jonas! How you doin’, buddy? I heard that you’re going to be a new coach on 'The Voice' and I wanted to say congratulations I guess. I’m going to have to look through the rules because this is my TV show. I’m not even sure if you’re old enough to be a coach on The Voice, but I’m certain that you’re going to get your butt kicked, buddy.”

Kelly Clarkson and John Legend also left video messages for Jonas. Their messages were a little different as they were nicer than Shelton's. Clarkson just stated the fact that they were both from Texas and because of that, they should form an alliance together. Legend had this to say to Jonas in his video message. “Our mission is to destroy Blake Shelton. We have to form an alliance. Me, you, Kelly,"

Looks like the competition is about to heat up before the next season even starts.

When Stefani came back, she replaced Adam Levine. However, her being his replacement only lasted one season so far seeing as how Nick Jonas will now replace her next season.

However, many Stefani and Shelton fans are hopeful the couple will be reunited on the show in another season coming up. Shelton agrees too and he had this to say to Entertainment Tonight. "I get what has to happen. We’re not seeing the last of Gwen on that show by any means. I wouldn’t say we’ve seen the last of anybody who’s ever been on that show. They’ve said from the beginning that once somebody’s a coach on The Voice, they’re always a part of the family.”

Since Shelton is the only original judge who has been on the show from the beginning, he was asked whether he has any power to bring Stefani back in an upcoming season. He said, "I don’t know that I have any power with that, but I definitely have a loud voice when it comes to [bringing her back] I make it known that I don’t ever want her to leave.”

Although the bullying has already started against Jonas from Shelton, he says he plans on bullying him in Season 18.

He told Extra this, "I’m gonna take [Gwen leaving] out on Nick Jonas. I mean, it’s not his fault. But I’m not happy about it and he’s gonna be sitting there, the new guy. So I’m gonna bully him a little bit, to be honest with you.”

This is what the fans of The Voice have to look forward to in Season 18. It has been a little while since Shelton won as a coach and with the rest of the judges planning to team up against him, he might have a hard time this coming season.
