She returned to coach season 9 and season 12.
Wowzers, wowzers, wowzers. After 16 years as one of the two permanent coaches of NBC's The Voice, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has apparently quit the show, and will not be returning for Season 17.
Fans of The Voice are still processing the news of Adam Levine's departure after 16 seasons - and they're not alone.
Announced in Levine's place, No Doubtsongstress Gwen Stefaniwill be taking claiming the empty panel slot for the upcoming 17th season.
Levine's exit came as a surprise to many, particularly fellow judge and frenemy Blake Shelton, with whom Levine would often playfully feud with on the show. Love ya Adam!" Season 15 contestant Reagan Strange, 14, echoed that sentiment by writing, "Thank you for being the best coach eva! Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. "It's really upsetting that you're even here right now, because if you have eyes and ears", he said ("you" referring to the audience) - "you should never have let this happen", Levine added, "I don't understand, I don't get it".
"To all of the loyal Voice fans, there's literally no show without you guys. Your support has meant EVERYTHING", the star said.
Levine signed off by tipping his hat to his late manager, Jordan Feldstein, who died of a blood clot in December 2017 at the age of 40. What an fantastic ride. First thank you must go to Mark. "Having a hard time wrapping my head around Adam not being at The Voice anymore", he wrote. "After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives", Shelton writes on Twitter. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn't set in on me yet. "To start an awesome show from the ground up is a big deal!"
Carson Daly made the announcement Friday morning on the "Today" show.
