“For me, it was time to move on. Your support has meant EVERYTHING…What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much.”
After 16 seasons, Adam Levine is saying his farewell to The Voice US
The announcement was made last Friday morning on NBC by host Carson Daly, stating that the Maroon 5 lead singer will not be returning for season 17 of the hit TV show. Taking his seat will be past Coach Gwen Stefani, joining Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend.
Adam posted on Instagram after the news broke, thanking the show’s creator “We had no idea what we were doing or where it was going, after the first day of shooting, I sat there, stunned. I said to myself ‘there’s some magic here. Something is definitely happening.’”
Even though Adam is leaving The Voice, he will still be part of NBC. Adam will be the executive producer of the network’s songwriter competition Songland, which will be premiering on May 28th.
