UNITED STATES: After 23 seasons, country music icon Blake Shelton said his farewells to “The Voice,” completing a deeply moving era. On stage, Shelton’s erstwhile team members happened to come together to celebrate his career and thank him for his significant contribution to the show as his final show on Tuesday went to air.
Fans of “The Voice” anxiously await what the future holds as one era ends and another begins in earnest for the well-known singing contest.
Blake Shelton will be replaced on the show by rookie coach Niall Horan, who will join Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Ariana Grande as coaches. The ex-member of One Direction is excited to engage in the show and offer his advice to the competitors.
It had been a “hell of a ride,” he said in his Instagram statement, thanking everybody who had been a part of the show. In 2011, when “The Voice” first debuted, Blake Shelton was a participant on the show’s original jury alongside musicians Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, and Adam Levine.
Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, the sons of Shelton’s wife, Gwen Stefani, are his three stepchildren. As Shelton departs “The Voice,” he has stated his desire to stay focused on family life and spend more time with them.
Blake Shelton recently obtained his Hollywood Walk of Fame star, an honour he never anticipated acquiring, and he expressed his gratitude for the appreciation.
Niall Horan, a new coach and former member of One Direction, conveyed his excitement and appreciation for being a part of Shelton’s final season, calling it “amazing.”
The season 4 winner of “The Voice,” Danielle Bradbery, and other alumni spoke strongly of Blake Shelton and the influence he had on their careers. Shelton’s farewell to “The Voice” came after he proclaimed in October 2020 that he was leaving the well-known singing competition programme.
