Adam Levine leaving The Voice after 16 seasons

Shelton has never left the show. The Maroon 5 frontman wrote a lengthy Instagram post on Friday, saying the Emmy-winning show “went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever.”

Levine was part of the original lineup of The Voice when it launched in 2011, along with Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green. Representatives for the singer and NBC didn’t immediately reply to emails seeking comment from The Associated Press. It was not clear if Levine was leaving the show for good. Aguilera and Green have taken breaks from the show, allowing stars like Pharrell Williams, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend to sit in their chairs. 0
