About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ 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 “theres some magic here. Something is definitely happening.” It went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever. Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life. Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know. Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. 4 musicians all at once is a lot. Sainthood is imminent. Thank you to Paul Mirkovich and the band for their ridiculously hard work and learning more songs than maybe any band ever. Thank you to the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum. To the amazingly talented vocalists who competed on the show and blew my mind on a daily basis. And, BLAKE FUCKIN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life. Kelly and John, take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both. And lastly, to all of the loyal voice fans, there’s literally no show without you guys. For me, it was time to move on. Your support has meant EVERYTHING. And Lastly, I’d like to thank my manager Jordan for convincing me to take that meeting. What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much. ❤️ Adam

Levine and Shelton became close while working on The Voice mostly because they loved bickering. They took shots at each other any time they could get especially when it was time to persuade new contestants to get on their team. Fans loved watching it and came up with the ship name “Shevine.”

We are constantly at each other’s throats, and sometimes we really do get mad at each other,” Shelton told The Tennesseean. “We’re those two guys you knew in high school where we have this bond that is unexplainable. It brings out the best and worst in both of us.”

They still had their moments where they let their love for each other shine through. Shelton gave a touching speech at Levine’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. The friends also had more things to say after Levine quit the show.

The singers left things on good terms when Levine quit the show. Levine dedicated part of his statement to Shelton.

His Instagram caption read, “And, BLAKE F*CKIN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life. Kelly [Clarkson] and John [Legend], take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both.”

Shelton still called him an idiot in his parting message. The country singer tweeted, “Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore. After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot.”

Legend said he might have to argue with Shelton now

The latest winner is coming back for another season. He talked about Gwen Stefani joining the cast again next season.

She’ll fit right in,” he told E! News. “We’ll have a lot of fun.” He teased what the dynamic will be like without Levine. Legend might add “arguing with Blake Shelton” to his duties as a coach when he returns.

“[Stefani and Shelton] probably won’t argue as much as he and Adam did…Maybe I’ll have to start arguing with Blake now,” he said.

Stefani and Shelton obviously have chemistry since they have been dating for years now, but it’s not the same like Levine. Fans will have to wait and see if Legend will step up to the plate to keep Shelton’s ego at bay next season.
