Blake Shelton is about to leave his child-show, “The Voice” after appearing on the show for more than ten years. According to NBC, Shelton will leave the singing competition after the upcoming season.
All 22 seasons of “The Voice” have included Shelton as a coach. His last series, Season 23, which premieres mostly in spring of 2023, is presently running on NBC.
In a statement, Shelton stated, “I’ve been debating this for a while and I’ve concluded that it is always time for me to relocate aside from ‘The Voice’ after season 23. This programme has enhanced my life throughout every aspect, and I’m going to feel at home there”.
Shelton praised the audience and the show’s crew in his remarks. He paid tribute to veteran host Carson Daly and his wife, Gwen Stefani, who indeed he first met on the programme in 2014 when they were both coaches.
“The Voice”, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew, and catering staff, you are the finest,” Shelton added. “It’s been a hell of a journey through these 12 years of chair turns.” To pull off a live concert twice a week, a lot of effort, enthusiasm, and alcoholic beverages (Ha!) are required. Over the years, I’ve developed enduring relationships with Carson and virtually every one of my fellow coaches, including my wife, Gwen Stefani!
“I must offer a major shout-out towards the vocalists, known as the “Voices,” who return to this stage year after year after year wow the audience with their skill. I must also express my gratitude to those who choose me as their coach”, he asserted.
“Last but not least, it really is about you, the viewers who cheer on then and encourage those artists, the mentors, and everybody else on “The Voice” as they pursue their ambitions. Without you, it couldn’t happen”.
New coaches Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper will debut in Season 23. Following a break, Season 23 will see the return of fan-favourite coach Kelly Clarkson.
Academy award rapper and performer Chance the Rapper declared his entry in the show, “I’m pleased to join ‘The Voice’ as a coach for the next season”.
“I’m eager to support aspiring artists and make the most of this transformative opportunity.
