Could Rihanna replace Gwen Stefani as the obligatory female coach?

As one of today's biggest pop stars, Rihanna knows a thing or two about what it takes to make it big in the music industry.

The key to Rihanna's popularity as a guest coach is her spot-on constructive criticism. Every contestant, no matter how talented, received a few words of wisdom from Rihanna during tonight's episode of The Voice.

In addition to helping Semple deal with his accent, Rihanna proved just how versatile she can be as a coach — an essential for anybody who hopes to someday go up against the great Blake Shelton! Rihanna offered some much-needed advice for country crooner Dustin Christensen. While chatting with Christensen about his plans for the future, Rihanna highlighted the importance of working in multiple genres. She admitted, "I've never made an album that was one genre of music." She also gave him a few helpful hints about when to start his vibrato. This comment resulted in a huge compliment from Levine, who told Rihanna, "You're a good coach."

The following are just a few of the pro-Rihanna tweets that appeared during tonight's episode of The Voice.

Christina Aguilera is already believed to have signed a contract for Season 10 of The Voice, so fans shouldn't expect Rihanna to gain a permanent spot among the coaches just yet. However, if she does eventually return, fans of the show will welcome her back with open arms.
