Blake Shelton announced his upcoming departure from The Voice and John Legend paid tribute to the star.

Blake Shelton marks the end of an era when he announced his exit “The voice” after over a decade on the show.

Shelton announced that he will be returning for The Voice season 23, which will air in spring 2023, but he will not be returning to the show after this season.

Shelton has won The Voice eight times. He won season 2 with Jermaine Paul, season 3 with Cassade PopeSeason 4 with Danielle Bradbery, Season 7 with Craig Wayne Boyd, Season 11 with Sundance Head, Season 13 with Chloe Kohanski, Season 18 with Todd Tilghmanand most recently in Season 20 with Came Anthony.


Legend has it that once Shelton leaves, the show will never be the same

Legend opens in one Interview with ET Online on Shelton’s exit and what he means to The Voice.

“Well, you know, he’s been doing the show for 22 seasons, it’ll be 23 when he’s done, and you can’t do something forever,” he told the outlet. “But we will miss him. He’s been the heart and soul and anchor of the show for a long time, and he’s a friend of mine and I really enjoy working with him. We will all miss him.”

Legend will not appear alongside Shelton in his final season on the show as he is stepping down for season 23.

“My family is growing, I’ve got a new album out, I’m going to be touring a bit, so it’s probably better if I take a break,” Legend told ET Online. “We went on hiatus last season because we had a show in our slot that the network was trying out — and I thought that was going to happen this season, but they ended up wanting us back … but I’ll be back on ‘The Voice ‘be there’, just not in the coming season.”


Chance the Rapper & Niall Horan join ‘The Voice’ for Season 23

Kelly Clarkson returns after one season. Clarkson originally resigned because she wanted to take the summer off, and she almost revealed earlier that she was returning.

“I’m so excited to be back with my Voice family!” Clarkson said in the publication. “Let’s do it, Team Kelly!”

The first new coach of the season is Chance of the rappers. He’s never been on The Voice, but it appears he’ll be joining the panel for the upcoming season. According to the press release, Chance is “lauded by his peers and critics alike for his unique rise to success” and he is “not signed to any major label.”

“I am very excited to be joining ‘The Voice’ as a coach next season,” he said in the press release. “I look forward to helping other artists reach the next level and make the most of this life-changing experience. Get ready for #teamchance.”

Niall Horan fills the last gap on the record and tops it all off. Horan is at a great point in his career to join The Voice, having gone into business for himself after spending time at One Direction. He’ll likely fill the slot that would normally be occupied by Gwen Stefani with a mix of pop and indie sounds.

“I’m excited to be a coach on ‘The Voice’ this season,” Horan said. “I look forward to meeting and mentoring the new generation of talent as we compete against the other teams!”
