Some fans of NBC’s The Voice are in disbelief after the show’s 22nd season coaching panel was announced.
On Sunday, May 15, 2022, it was announced that Kelly Clarkson would not be returning to the show for season 22, with Camila Cabello taking over as chair instead.
The coaching panel consists of Blake Shelton, John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Camila Cabello. Cabello was previously a mentor on the show, meaning she has some experience of how it works.
Some fans say they won’t watch the show without Clarkson
When The Voice announced the coaching panel on Instagram, there was a lot of commentary about Clarkson’s whereabouts.
“Don’t watch without Queen @kellyclarkson” one person wrote.
Another commented“@kellyclarkson where are you?”
“Wait? Kelly taking a break? Omg,” a comment reads.
Others are delighted with the panel as presented in the video.
“Happy to see Blake again, nice to see Camila too!” a comment reads.
Some people were sad that both Clarkson and Ariana Grande weren’t on the panel.
“Kelly and Ariana both holding back the voice makes me sad even though I never saw it because I was so happy to see my childhood sweetheart befriended my tween/teen sweetheart but I’m so glad you’ll be able to focus on the projects you love!” eins Reads tweet about the situation.
Clarkson’s show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, is slated to get even bigger in fall 2022, which may be one of the reasons she’s decided to take a break from The Voice. Her show will replace The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which ran in the same slot for many years. The show was revamped between seasons, per Good Housekeeping.
“No offense to the other trainers and producers but Kelly Clarkson was the only reason I watched The Voice,” another tweet said Clarkson’s exit is.
Another person tweeted, “So goodbye the voice for now. Until Kelly comes back. The Queen is giving me a break from the show…but preparing me for other important things along the way.”
“Why are Camila and Gwen joining the voice cast for the upcoming season? I do not get it. Ariana and Kelly Clarkson should keep the voice.” one person tweeted.
Why did Kelly Clarkson leave The Voice?
Clarkson shared during a Interview with Elvis Duran on Thursday May 11, 2022, one reason she may not be returning to the show.
“I’ve turned 40 … and do you know what I’m giving myself for 40?” she said. “I literally said no to everything this summer. I will do nothing this summer.”
She added, “I’m taking my time.”
Since The Voice is filming in the summer, it was a good indication that the star wouldn’t be returning to the show.
However, it’s possible that Clarkson will return in the upcoming seasons of the show. There was no announcement of her return at a later date.
This is the first time since 2012 that the show has been scheduled to run one season per year The Hollywood Reporter. Since then, the show has aired twice a year.
