Shelton says he's leaving The Voice
Tuesday, October 11, 2022
– Blake Shelton announced tonight that he would leave "The Voice" television show where he has been a coach since 2011. He said he would leave the singing competition after next season.
"I've been wrestling with this for awhile, and I've decided it's time for me to step away from The Voice after next season," Shelton tweeted.
"This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me. It's been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best. It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week."
"I've made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one of my fellow coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani!"
Thanking the contestants and the fans, Shelton said, "It would not happen without you," he wrote.
Season 22 is underway and in the knockout rounds. Shelton has enjoyed a good track record with eight winners during his tenture.

This six-song "Blake Shelton Live EP" seems a little odd. It's not as though Shelton had an especially noteworthy tour to document. Besides, at only six songs long, it's a relatively short document, anyhow. While it may be little more than a post-it note of a project, though, it also packs a powerful punch.
You recognize right away the large amount of enthusiasm the act of singing to an audience brings out of Shelton. When compared to the recorded versions of these hits, ...
