Blake Shelton 'didn't expect' Adam Levine to quit The Voice
Blake Shelton 'didn't expect' Adam Levine to quit The Voice The Maroon 5 frontman announced his departure from the singing competition earlier this year, after eight years in the role!
Fellow coach Blake Shelton is the only other coach to have appeared in all 16 seasons of the NBC show: and whilst he knew his pal was "getting to the point" of wanting to step away, he was "pretty upset" to discover he would be leaving this year.
Blake Shelton told 'Extra' But the country star won't be disheartened over Adam's departure for long, as his replacement is Blake's girlfriend Gwen Stefani!
Blake said having his beau as a judge on the show will "soften the blow" of Adam leaving, but noted the dynamic will be different with Gwen, because he "can't go head-to-head" with her like he did with the 'Sugar' hitmaker.
