"Everybody’s going to be so mad -- the other coaches - that I got you,” the No Doubt artist said in the interview. “So excited.” She went on to praise the Canadian icon whose career has spanned several decades and has been recognized with several awards.
"I am blown away by [Celine’s] unbelievable story. Having this unbelievable gift to be able to speak through music to the whole world," the 47-year-old noted. In response, the My Heart Will Go On singer spoke of her respect for the Rich Girl performer. "I know Gwen very well. I know her career. I know how beautiful she is all the time,” Celine said.
