The exciting news was dropped ahead of the show’s September 23 release date for its 17th season. The show’s resident coaches, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson just can’t contain their excitement over Swift’s return.

Swift’s highly-anticipated return is greeted by Shelton telling entertainment new outlet People:
“This season, she brings even more experience to the table. It’s no accident that she’s the biggest star in the world. She’s not only talented, but she’s really smart. So it’s fun to work with.”
Stefani also had massive praises for the “Lover” hitmaker whom she previously worked with on the show back in 2014.
“It’s pretty rare what she has accomplished. She’s just so relatable in the way she writes, especially to girls — and to me,” Stefani tells the outlet.
As for Clarkson, who is a product of a talent competition herself, what appeals most to her about Swift is how she invested on the artists. The American Idol alum said:
“I loved that she actually cared and invested. She cried a couple of times. She was really into it.”
Legend, in addition, is looking forward to his team of artists performing for Swift.
“Your artists don’t know who the Mega Mentor is until they walk out there … and then they realize they’re about to sing in front of Taylor Swift,” he says.
