Adam Levine is leaving NBC’s “The Voice” after 16 seasons.
Carson Daly made the announcement Friday morning on the “Today” current. Daly talked about Gwen Stefani will return for season 17 in Levine’s chair.
The Maroon 5 frontman wrote a dimension Instagram put up Friday, saying the Emmy-winning current “went on to be a life-shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever.”
Levine was part of the distinctive lineup of “The Voice” when it launched in 2011, along with Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, and Cee-Lo Green. Aguilera and Green have taken breaks from the current, allowing stars like Pharrell Williams, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend to sit of their chairs. Shelton has on no account left the current.
It was not clear if Levine was leaving the current for good. Representatives for the singer and NBC didn’t immediately reply to emails looking for comment from The Associated Press.
