Fans left ‘crying’ after Blake Shelton’s heartfelt post amid ‘Voice’ exit

The self-proclaimed “King” of NBC’s “The Voice” will be stepping down after season 23 of the show, he revealed in a statement obtained by Heavy and later posted to Instagram by Shelton.

Shelton announced that he will return for the 23rd season of “The Voice”, which will air in spring 2023, but he will not return to the show after that season.

He is the only original cast member on the show, other than host Carson Daly. For Season 23, Shelton will be joined by two new coaches and Kelly Clarkson.

“This show has changed my life for the better in every way and it will always feel like home to me,” Shelton wrote in the statement. “It’s been a great ride over these 12 years of seat changes and I want to thank everyone at NBC’s The Voice.”

He added that he is grateful for the lifelong ties he has built with Carson Daly and his wife, Gwen Stefani.

Fans are heartbroken to hear that Shelton is leaving the show.

Fans of Shelton used his Instagram comments to share their thoughts on leaving the show.

“crying love you lord shelton thank you for being so sweet and caring to us artist” commented one person.

Many commented to thank Shelton for the years he spent on ‘The Voice’, and others said they would stop watching the show after Shelton left.

“Will never be the same again. I probably don’t watch anymore. It will be interesting to see who else they bring in and if the ratings drop. Team Blake,” reads one comment.

Gwen Stefani also responded to the post.

“I am so proud of you and so blessed to have found you,” Stefani wrote. “your talent brings joy to the hearts of so many people and I am so lucky to be a part of your life journey.”

The first new coach for the season is Chance the Rapper. He’s never been on “The Voice” but it looks like he’ll be joining the panel next season. According to the press release, Chance is “acclaimed by both his peers and critics for his unique rise to success” and is “not signed to any major label”.

“I’m excited to join ‘The Voice’ next season as a coach,” he said in the release. “I love helping other artists get to the next level and get the most out of this life-changing experience. Get ready for #teamchance.”

Niall Horan fills the last hole on the panel and rounds everything up. Horan is in a great place in his career to join “The Voice” having gone out on his own after spending some time in One Direction. He will probably fill the slot normally filled by Gwen Stefani with a mix of pop and indie sounds.

“I’m excited to be joining this season of ‘The Voice’ as a coach,” said Horan, “Looking forward to meeting and mentoring the new wave of talent as we battle it out with the other teams!”

Shelton has won “The Voice” eight times. He won in Season 2 with Jermaine Paul, Season 3 with Cassadee Pope, Season 4 with Danielle Bradbery, Season 7 with Craig Wayne Boyd, Season 11 with Sundance Head, Season 13 with Chloe Kohanski, Season 18 with Todd Tilghman, and most recently in season 20 with Cam Anthony.
