After 16 Seasons on the Show, Adam Levine Suddenly Departs from ‘The Voice’
We’ve barely reached half of the year but a lot has happened already — we welcomed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first bundle of joy, Baby Archie Harrison, deaths of celebrities Luke Perry of “Riverdale” and director John Singleton, and Adam Levine leaving “The Voice.”
The freshest was that of the exit of the Maroon 5 frontman, which certainly shocked fans and future contestants alike. Who wouldn’t be? The hunk has been with the talent search for the entirety of its run up until now.
Admit it, you were used to seeing him behind the red chair and it’s exactly why it’s hard to believe he was getting off the boat. For 16 seasons, we’ve seen Adam’s other sides — there’s the playful one, a brother-ish persona, and a compassionate mentor as well.
The 40-year-old is one of the original coaches who have been with the show since its premiere in 2011. Others were Cee Lo, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton.
Adam Levine’s Statement
A few hours after the news broke out, the father of two took to social media to break his silence on the matter. But instead of explaining why he was departing from the show, he expressed gratitude to the people he had gotten close with during the run of the show.
First, he thanked producer Mark Burnett who tapped him to join the show. Then, he extended his thanks to NBC, host Carson Daly, and fellow coaches he sat beside for 16 seasons.
But there is one person who may be hurting the most: Blake Shelton, who Adam also thanked in his statement. The two singers have formed quite a bond on the set and a playful bromance, which sometimes would lead to faux bickering — which was said to have jolted up the ratings of the show. The country artist, meanwhile, said he still couldn’t believe this was happening.
However, Blake shouldn’t be too sad of Adam’s surprise exit because the 40-year-old said he would be back to say hi. Plus, his girlfriend Gwen Stefani is stepping in to fill the vacant coach position, which means we get to see more authentic love story on TV.
The former No Doubt vocalist is a recurring coach who first met her current flame in season 7, and then she came back to mentor talented contestants again in seasons 9 and 12.
Interestingly, Adam or the network never provided the reason behind the coach’s decision, which became a stirrer for a lot of conversations. After the announcement, rumor mongers started taking their smartest guesses, adding up factors here and there and putting together the puzzle pieces from the months leading to this.
