‘The Voice’: Christina Aguilera Gives a Possible Reason Why Adam Levine Left the Show
Adam Levine is officially leaving The Voice. The reason behind the decision is a bit of a mystery since he hasn’t talked about it. One person who understands wanting to walk away from coaching is Christina Aguilera.
She was a coach from Season 1 to 3. She then later returned for Seasons 5, 8, and 10. Find out what Aguilera said about why Levine probably left the show and more reports on him leaving.
Adam Levine left The Voice and is getting replaced by Gwen Stefani
Carson Daly announced on the Today show that Levine won’t be returning to The Voice for Season 17. Gwen Stefani will be replacing him as the fourth coach.
Levine eventually made a statement about his decision on Instagram. He made sure to thank everyone for the opportunity to be on the show. However, he didn’t really mention a reason for it. A source has since claimed a reason why he left the show.
He reportedly left because of changes to the show
The competition has made many changes throughout the seasons to keep things fresh and unexpected. It has gotten some backlash from fans these past few seasons. A source claims that was a reason why Levine decided to quit coaching.
“Adam’s decision was difficult one for him. It had nothing to do with backlash,” a source said according to Us Weekly. The source claimed he has disliked the show’s format for multiple seasons now. He also reportedly wasn’t happy with America voting in favor of country music.
Blake Shelton currently has the most wins on the show with six. Most of the contestants that have been winning are country artists.
Levine has yet to confirm this claim. However, other coaches have talked about the reasons for him leaving. One is an original coach on the show, and the other is currently coaching.
Christina Aguilera hinted that Levine could have left because of creativity
Aguilera knows a thing or two about leaving The Voice. So she has weighed in on why Levine left.
“Things run their course,” she said according to Extra. “When it’s time, it’s time. As a creative person, I think we have to be able to feel ourselves outside that kind of environment. Cheers to that!”
She’s not the only coach that has talked about the reason behind Levine leaving. Clarkson also opened up about it.
“It was kind of a shocking thing,” Clarkson told Extra. “But I kind of get it. He’s been doing it for eight years — that’s a long time. He’s got a couple kids. Still has a career. Still touring. It’s a very rigorous schedule fitting everything in.”
Levine is going to have more time to focus on his music now that he won’t be on reality TV. He reportedly performed at Adam Sandler’s daughter’s bat mitzvah after the announcement. He is also an executive producer on the new show, Songland.
