The No Doubt hitmaker was last seen on the NBC talent show in 2020 when her contestant Carter Rubin won – Gwen's first win.

However, the mom-of-three decided not to return to the program for the new series but never gave an exact reason why – meaning it is possible she could return.

The current Season 20 was reportedly filming at the same time as season 19 was wrapping up, which was a time Gwen was busy releasing her first solo single in years, Let Me Reintroduce Myself.

To date, the singer has been a coach on seasons 7, 9, 12, 17 and 19. The star is also reportedly busy working on new music and her Las Vegas residency, meaning she has little spare time right now.

Ariana replied, telling them: "Oh, I love that. I stan Shefani."

Gwen left season 19 on a high and was made up that her contestant was named the overall winner. The singer was even more delighted by the fact that she had defeated Blake, who had won season 18.

At the beginning of the series, Gwen said, "Blake won last season. But I'm back this season and I’m going to get a win." Gwen and Blake have a lot to thank the show for, having met on it in 2015.
