Stefani noted that she received the call to join the show when news of Christina Aguilera's pregnancy made headlines. Aguilera also wrote Stefani a note, and visited the family for their son Kingston's birthday party. "She's all girl power. ... She's like, 'You're gonna love it, you're gonna be fine.'" Stefani also described Adam Levine as "an eight-year-old boy who has never learned sportsmanship, which I love, because it reminds me of home. I think that he is so serious about this game that we are playing. I mean, he seriously gets upset! It’s crazy."
Rossdale said of helping Stefani in the rehearsal room, "The main thing, from my perspective, is just to make sure that Gwen is so good and excellent like all the other judges on the show." Stefani added of having her other half alongside her, "He is super articulate, and he has a really good opinion. He is smart, and he's been doing a really good job. We both have, I think, a lot of experience in the sense that when you look back at all the shows and all the things we've done — and I mean, we all met like touring together and doing hundreds of shows — it's so fun to be in the position to meet [all of the contestants]."
