Why Did Kelly Clarkson Leave ‘The Voice’? Will she return?

Kelly Clarkson left “The Voice” ahead of season 22 of the competition show. The talk show host and music superstar has since been candid about why she chose to take at least one season off.

The singer-songwriter and TV personality says she wanted to take the summer away from Hollywood to decompress with her kids.

Clarkson made a stop on the “Today‘ show on August 23, 2022, and she opened up to Carson Daly, host of ‘The Voice’, and Hoda Kotb about her decision.

“I hadn’t had a minute and it’s obviously been a rough few years, so it was really important for me to pause,” Clarkson told me at the time, adding that one of her favorite parts of the summer was when she “literally four-wheeled in the mountains and walked past” [the water].”

Clarkson told the hosts, “My sister, my cousin and I, and some friends, literally spent all summer in the mountains, getting out into nature.”

Her children, River, 8, and Remington, 6, went between her and her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, the talk show host said.

“It was nice because they usually have to travel a lot because of our divorce. We were both in Montana, so I think my kids felt a little more centered too,” she shared.

During an extensive interview with Variety, Clarkson was asked why she left “The Voice” and about a possible future return to the big red coaching chair. Most of the time, Clarkson wanted to take the summer off, which meant taking time off from “The Voice” as the show’s fall seasons begin filming during the summer months.

She also shared that she couldn’t work on an album while on the show.

“There was no time,” she said. “And not just because of the talk show, but also because of ‘The Voice’ and ‘American Song Contest.’ I generally like to be busy. But especially when all the feelings come up, I’m like, “Oh, let’s be as busy as we can so I don’t have to feel this for a minute!” I do that, which is not healthy.”

She added: “That’s why taking this summer was so important to me, even if a lot of people were a little disappointed because I had a few things to do. Of course I stopped ‘The Voice’ this season because I just needed the space.”

However, Clarkson taking a break from “The Voice” doesn’t mean she’s gone for good. When asked if she would return to the show in two seasons, the star almost seemed to slip.

“I sure… Um, I’ll probably be back on ‘The Voice’ someday,” she said, laughing awkwardly as if she’d just spilled the beans, according to Variety. “Maybe I’ll be back at ‘The Voice’.”

When asked if it would be the “season after next,” she replied, “I mean, I don’t know!” while laughing.

“The Voice” returns to NBC on September 19, 2022. The season will feature coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Camila Cabello and John Legend.
