Adam Levine is moving on from ‘The Voice.’
After 16 seasons, Adam announced that he’s leaving the show.
Carson Daly, who hosts The Voice, announced the news Friday morning on Today — saying the “beloved coach and friend” would be missed.
Levine was one of the original coaches who launched The Voice when it premiered in April 2011, sitting on the show’s iconic red chairs alongside Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green. He and Shelton have remained on the show ever since, though other coaches have rotated.
The most current lineup includes John Legend and Kelly Clarkson, both of whom are returning for season 17.
Over the course of his 16 seasons, Levine has won the show three times: first in season 1, with Javier Colon, and then again in season 5 (Tessanne Chin) and season 9 (Jordan Smith).
He’s also developed a hilarious frenemy relationship with Shelton, which many credit with part of the show’s success.
“He’ll always be a cherished member of The Voice family,” Daly, 45, said on Today, praising Levine for “inspiring many of the artists who he worked so closely with over the years” and helping launch The Voice. “Of course, we wish him nothing but the best.”
