Adam Levine exiting 'The Voice' after 16 seasons

NBC View View 24

Javier Colon won season one, Tessanne Chin won season five and Jordan Smith won season nine. He and Shelton have remained in the show's iconic red chairs ever since, though other coaches have rotated. His departure leaves Blake Shelton as the show's only remaining original coach. After 16 seasons that changed both of our lives.

Adam's exit comes just days after Team John's Maelyn Jarmon was announced as the victor of Season 16.

After the news broke, fellow coach Kelly Clarkson tweeted, "Found out last night about @adamlevine leaving The Voice & while I get that he's been doing the show 4 a while & wants to step away, it will be weird showing up 4 work & he's not there To start an fantastic show from the ground up is a big deal!" "Gonna miss working with that idiot", Sheldon wrote on Twitter on Friday. Daly said Levine chose to leave the show and he "will always be cherished member of The Voice family, and of course we wish him nothing but the best".

Clarkson also took to social media after the news broke that the Maroon 5 frontman would no longer be a coach on the reality competition show, saying "it will be weird showing up for work & he's not there". "A group of Coaches so good we need an encore".

On an inneresting note, just two weeks ago, The Voice tweeted that all four coaches would be returning. Hmm.

Levine's exit was first announced on Friday's Today broadcast. This will be a return to the singing competition for Stefani who has previously worked on seasons 9 and 12. On Tuesday, Adam posted a pic with Blake, tweeting, "A rare moment of tenderness".

A source told Radar that during an appearance to promote The Voice in New York City on May 13, Levine had onlookers grinding their teeth because of his childish behaviour and bossy demands.

In the caption, Levine, 40, recalled how he first landed the gig, which lasted over eight years and 16 seasons. Gwen Stefani is slated to return to the show for Season 17. Singer Maelyn Jarmon, who was a member of Legend's team, was crowned victor.
