The Grammy-awarded singer Adam Levine is now the executive producer of new reality show ‘Songland’
American singer-songwriter and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has officially left “The Voice” after 16 seasons of being a coach.
The announcement came from “The Voice” host Carson Daly at “The Today Show. He also announced that Gwen Stefani will replace Levine for the show’s Season 17
In a lengthy Instagram post, Adam shared his thoughts on leaving the show. He thanked everyone on the show for their support as he recalled his experiences being part of the reality show.
Levine recalled Mark Burnett convinced them to sign up for the 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,’” Levine wrote.
“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,” he added.
The multi-awarded Grammy recording artist also thanked his co-coaches in the show and host Daly for the experience.
“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,” he said.
“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,” he added.
Levine also thanked the show’s fans all over the world as “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,” Levine ended his post.
Levine is now busy co-producing “Songland,” a songwriting competition series on NBC that premiered last May 28. Each week, record producers of the show will team up with songwriters to create the next big hit to be recorded by a guest performing artist
