‘The Voice’ recap: Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine’s teams take it live.

Picking up the pieces. shared more details about her shocking split from Gavin Rossdale, which she described as “unexpected” in a new interview with KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright on Monday, Nov. 9. According to Stefani, however, the separation began long before they formally confirmed the news in a joint statement. “I had been writing because my life blew up,” The Voice mentor told Wright. “Everybody knows that my life blew up last February. We finally get to hear what the contestants sound like when they are unfiltered by time and editing as well as what the coaches sound like when they speak off the cuff — their vocal stumbles, unfinished thoughts, too-long sentences and dud jokes hanging out there for all to see.

Also, thank goodness, we don’t have to keep looking at coaches Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine in the same outfits night after night after night, as we do during blinds, battles and knockouts. Also a thing of the past is Levine’s foray into baldness, replaced by … hair. (He shaved off the beard he’d grown for knockouts, too, so now it looks as if his facial hair simply packed up and moved to the top of his head.) The coach bring-back (or whatever they’re calling it): Each coach gets to bring back one previously eliminated contestant, for a Live Playoff team of six instead of five. The terms of her divorce were settled in August, and she’s since released a smash new single, “Used to Love You” — and stepped out with her new man, Blake Shelton. “There was one night, the epicenter of the whole thing — that’s the most I can say about that — and the next day I wrote the chorus to ‘Used to Love You,'” Stefani recalled. “But I didn’t know it was ‘Used to Love You.’ I just had written all this stuff and it had happened to be in there buried in a bunch of lyrics that I had written.” The songstress, who shares sons Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 20 months, with Rossdale, said the emotions she felt after her split allowed her to find her musical niche. “I’ve always wanted to write music so desperately because doing it is one thing that really validates me for myself,” she shared. “Being able to songwrite and look back at those treasures of music is just everything to me.

But there’s been a lot of insecurity about it, and times where it doesn’t work.” Creating lyrics in the wake of her split was cathartic, though. “I just knew that I needed to write. Blake and Gwen flirting: Now that we know for sure that Shelton and Stefani are more than just fellow coaches, we get to watch for signs of luurve (or at least chemistry) between them. Even the first day that I went into the studio, I didn’t want to get out of bed,” she shared. “You know when you’re so down that you just don’t want to do anything?

We definitely got it Monday — with Shelton unabashedly rooting on Stefani’s contestants at the expense of Levine’s and Stefani giggling and beaming as her boyfriend offered his support from the other side of red chair row. I just want to be honest and real, that represents where I’m at right now.'” The singer was open to discussing her life “right now” — which includes fellow Voice coach Shelton — but Wright didn’t really pursue the topic further. “Ask me whatever you want and I’ll decide if I want to answer it. Blaine Mitchell (Team Adam): Mitchell showed off his confident front-man stage moves and easy rock-star charm with INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart,” as his new wife looked on proudly. Stefani said it was gratifying to see Love succeed “against all odds,” meaning, one may infer, that she’s much older than the average “Voice” contestant. She also paid tribute to Love’s gospel roots. “You channel,” she said, noting that the singer had prayed before going on. “It’s so beautiful, and it’s so real.” Keith Semple (Team Adam): During rehearsals, Levine reassured Semple that Mr.

Still, Shelton told Semple he’d “filled in those gaps” well because he was “such a good ad-libber.” And Levine seemed satisfied, telling Semple he’d showed people who he was and what he wanted to accomplish. Shelby Brown (Team Adam): This 17-year-old powerhouse country singer with pop crossover aspirations sent Linda Ronstadt’s “You’re No Good” soaring, as she seems to do with every song she takes on. Shelton, who still believes he is her rightful coach, admired the “break” in Brown’s voice, telling her, “It’s like if Trisha Yearwood’s voice and Carrie Underwood’s voice could have a voice together, that’s what it would sound like.” Korin Bukowski (Team Gwen): Stefani seems to be trying to reinvent this appealingly quirky indie artist as a beautiful swan — making her ditch her hipster specs, trim her super-long hair, don a flowing evening gown and tackle an equally flowing song, Sarah McLachlan’s “Adia.” Levine said the song had allowed us to discover a degree of “strength” in her voice we may not have realized was there.

Stefani said Bukowski was “just growing right before our eyes and blossoming into this beautiful person.” Not sure what that’s saying about what she was before. Ellie Lawrence (Team Gwen): “You need to be what your hair looks like, because that’s who you are,” Stefani told the blue-haired indie she chose to summon back to the competition. Amy Vachal (Team Adam): Ethereally gentle singer Vachal applied her soothing vocal stylings to the classic “The Way You Look Tonight,” looking gorgeous as ever herself. She still seemed someone stiff onstage, and I found the performance a bit lounge-y, but that didn’t bother the coaches. “Amy, I don’t know what the chances are, but please do a Christmas album someday,” Shelton begged. “You have the perfect voice for that crooner type of thing.” No argument there. Viktor Kiraly (Team Gwen): With all of Hungary apparently rooting him on, Kiraly worked with his new coach, Stefani, to stir some soul into Lisa Stansfield’s “All Around the World.” Levine, Kiraly’s old coach, generously declared that Kiraly had “arrived” since landing on Team Gwen and that he was “super proud and happy.” But Shelton couldn’t leave it there, saying he was going to “go way out on a limb here and say Team Gwen overall is whipping the crap out of Team Adam tonight.” Now, Blake …

He coached him to “simplify” his vocal style, saying it had “too many sprinkles and frostings.” Alas, Pena’s rendition of the Civil Wars’ “Barton Hollow” still came off as overblown and dynamically lacking. “One thing that nobody can take away from you,” Shelton, on whose team Pena had spent time, told him, “you dump 150% of yourself into your performance.” Levine noted that, wherever he ended up going from here, he’d already learned a lot. Jordan Smith (Team Adam): The remarkably high-voiced Smith gave his own impressive twist to Beyonce’s “Halo,” with which he apparently almost brought Levine to tears during rehearsal.

Stefani agreed, “All I can think of is God as well when he sings.” And Levine said Smith wasn’t a singer, but rather “a figure” that “everybody draws energy from,” in a way that was “unlike anything that I’ve ever experienced in my life.” A little over the top, but whatever.
