Stefani co-wrote “Baby Don’t Lie” with producers Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Noel Zancanella. It is Stefani’s first solo single since her platinum-plus sophomore album “Sweet Escape” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. “Baby Don’t Lie” is available now for digital download.

A three-time Grammy winner, Stefani, who is currently putting the finishing touches on her new album, has achieved worldwide success as a performer, songwriter and recording artist selling more than 30 million albums worldwide with No Doubt and as a multi-platinum solo artist. After the double-platinum No Doubt retrospective “Singles Collection,” featuring the hit “It’s My Life,” Stefani released two highly successful solo albums, ”Love.Angel.Music.Baby” and “The Sweet Escape.” The latter featured hit singles “Rich Girl,” “What Are You Waiting For?,” “Sweet Escape” and “Hollaback Girl,” a No. 1 single that was the first digital download to sell over 1 million copies in the United States.

Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. And now the real reason these coaches sign up for the Voice. Time to pimp out their music after getting all this screen time

  2. 2 down, 2 to do. At least they’re getting through it early in the season.

    They finally have lots of alums with legit songs out there. They better not screw them over.

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if Melanie get’s an invite back with her current success with her EP and the AHS stuff. Jacquie has been doing rather fine too.
    I just want Schuler and Chamuel to be invited back. Loool

  4. Yeah, but you know it never hurts to invite back alumni who are being successful. And Michelle came back s5

  5. Looking forward to it. although I wish that Maroon 5 would perform “Lost Stars” instead of Animal. I know it’s not their current single, but it’s so much better than their two recent singles “Animal” and “Maps”. Either that, or the Adam Gwen duet would have been cool.

    I think it’s fine to let the coaches perform their singles on the show.. I’m actually more annoyed when they use up all their guest spots for established artists, when they should be inviting back more of their own alumni. The Voice is pretty good about inviting back the winners, but they haven’t been generating the best music, so let’s hope that they they bring back more of the other finalists this year. They’d be crazy not to invite Melanie (even though she came in 6th)….She’s been doing very well and an appearance on the Voice would give her the push that she needs. Blake seems to do the best job bringing back people from his team to perform.

  6. The majority of the screen time actually goes towards showing those lengthy contestant video packages. I could do wtih less of those.

  7. The one who could really use a return is RaeLynn. She has a current single that is doing well but could hit a wall. Given how hard it is for females in country music, every extra promotion helps.

  8. Yeah Blake does a good job of that. I want to think the rest would do more of that too, but most of them are cycled in and out so often I don’t really get upset if they don’t.
    Adam is always there and you won’t really see him invite someone back.
    It’s not his job to do that, but with the way he acts so competitive and needy for all these good contestants you’d think he’d at least try.

  9. The last few seasons, they have consistently invited the top 3 from the previous season back to perform. I think it started on season 4 with the finalists from season 3 when Cassadee Pope was the first winner to have a radio single that warranted serious promotion, and Nicholas David, Terry McDermott, and Tony Lucca (season 2, a token team Adam member) performed on a separate program. Before that, I think the return performances were intermittent and I remember seeing some finalists again, but not others.

    I assume they’ll do the same this year, although Josh Kaufman probably won’t have a single to promote yet, and I have no idea what, if anything, Jake Worthington is doing musically. I wonder if Josh will have to sing a song from Pippin? Or if he’ll even have time to fly out to LA for a live taping of The Voice? It might be more feasible if they taped a feature on him prepping for the show and performing on Broadway, and then gave him a performance slot in the spring.

  10. I’m surprised Adam hasn’t gotten more of his contestants back on the show, especially since he has tried to help a number of them post Voice. At the same time, his contestants haven’t had the same kind of success as Blake’s country artists, so maybe that’s the reason. All of the contestants brought back by the Voice were either winners or had a single that showed some charting potential . So far, they’ve invited back Tessanne, Javier, and Will Champlain and Tony Lucca hasll had hat I rrecaull sein gon staine
