About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ We had no idea what we were doing or where it was going. After the first day of shooting, I sat there, stunned. I said to myself “theres some magic here. Something is definitely happening.” It went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever. Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life. Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know. Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. 4 musicians all at once is a lot. Sainthood is imminent. Thank you to Paul Mirkovich and the band for their ridiculously hard work and learning more songs than maybe any band ever. 😂 Thank you to the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum. To the amazingly talented vocalists who competed on the show and blew my mind on a daily basis. And, BLAKE FUCKIN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life. Kelly and John, take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both. And lastly, to all of the loyal voice fans, there’s literally no show without you guys. For me, it was time to move on. Your support has meant EVERYTHING. And Lastly, I’d like to thank my manager Jordan for convincing me to take that meeting. 😊 What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much. ❤️ Adam

Instant 4-chair turn. #TheVoice

A post shared by NBC's The Voice (@nbcthevoice) on

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are dating, so Shelton should be happy to have her back.

Levine’s departure came after he was the focus of a controversy involving his contestants Reagan Strange, 14, and DeAndre Nico, 22. Both were up for elimination and were competing for an “instant save.” But Strange could not perform because she fell ill. After Nico’s performance, Levine shocked everyone when he declared that he wanted people to vote for Strange.

Fans have also been speculating that his departure was due to his dissatisfaction with recent changes in rules and format of the show. It was also rumored that he did not like that the fact that the show appears to favors country musicians.

Season 17 format

The change in format in Season 16 in which the knockout rounds were eliminated and cross battles introduced will not be retained. The show will return to the traditional format which includes a knockout round, according to TV Guide.

The Voice Season 17 release date

The Voice Season 17 premieres on NBC on Monday, September 23, at 8 p.m. ET. A second episode will air the next day, Tuesday, September 24. Subsequent episodes will air at the same time schedule on Monday and Tuesday.
