Adam Levine’s Return To The Voice Was A Bad Idea, Blake Shelton Says

As NBC’s The Voice season 23 is nearing its finale, former voice coach Adam Levine is set to perform with his band Maroon 5 on the live results show this Tuesday. In a backstage interview with ET’s Cassie DiLaura, Blake Shelton, one of the current coaches, couldn’t help but express his feelings about Levine’s return.

The dynamic duo of Shelton and Levine shared the spotlight on the competition series for 16 seasons. They also forged a close friendship. In his recent chat, Blake echoed his sentiments about Levine’s return to The Voice.

The singer playfully criticized Adam’s coaching abilities, emphasizing that the producers’ decision to bring him back was the only flaw in an otherwise exciting lineup of events.

Shelton said the following about Levine’s return:

“I think that’s the only bad idea that the producers have had. Everything else feels exciting, and we’re looking forward to it as a team and a crew. And then they say Adam’s coming back, and we go, ‘Well, it can’t be perfect.’ I hope they don’t let him talk. He’s a great singer; he’s just a crappy coach.”

It was announced that Blake Shelton would be exiting his role as a Voice coach after an impressive 23-year run. Shelton, who has been a coach on The Voice since its inception in 2011, was part of the original cast alongside Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green. In explaining his decision, the musician expressed a desire to allocate more time to his family.
