so many changes going on right now, and with Blake's announcement of leaving, people can use this thread to speculate what might happen after that so we don't use the Season 23 thread for that. 

 

I won't sticky it for now, too many stickies already, will add to consolidated stick for a quick link

Blake Shelton Confirms Season 23 of The Voice Will Be His Last

It's the end of an era.

 
 

The self-proclaimed G.O.A.T. of The Voice will be retiring his red chair. Yes, it's been announced that Season 23, airing in 2023, will be Blake Shelton's last. The news comes as it was revealed that Season 23 will also have a new panel of Coaches: Kelly Clarkson will return after a hiatus alongside newcomers Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper. 

 

Shelton has been a Coach on The Voice since the first season in 2011, when he was a part of the original cast with Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green. He's offered his musical expertise on every episode since. The country star proudly holds the title of most-winningest Coach in the show's history with eight victories for #TeamBlake: Season 2 (Jermaine Paul), Season 3 (Cassadee Pope), Season 4 (Danielle Bradbery), Season 7 (Craig Wayne Boyd), Season 11 (Sundance Head), Season 13 (Chloe Kohanski), Season 18 (Todd Tilghman), and Season 20 (Cam Anthony). 

 

But what's perhaps even more special? He met his wife, Gwen Stefani, while working on the show. They officially tied the knot in July 2021.

“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23,” Shelton said in a statement. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people; you are the best."

 

He continued, "It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow Coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani! I have to give a huge shoutout to the singers–the ‘Voices,’ who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent, and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their Coach. Lastly, it’s about y’all, the fans, who watch and support these Artists, us Coaches, and everyone at The Voice who are chasing their dreams. It would not happen without you!"

 

Since no The Voice fan quite knows what it's like to watch without Shelton, it's an understatement to say he'll be missed.

Blake leaving, Gwen leaving as a definite package deal. I’m not ok.

Wait really?

 

Well rip the show by S24, maybe S25 LOL.

 

Unless they get someone like Dolly Parton to replace him(they won't lol)

it's sad to see Blake leave, it's like in a series where the main actor leaves, it will leave a void but... it can breathe new life into the show, it will make more new coaches to discover, new tensions, new coaching, you also have to see the positive and not directly say: more blake = end of the show

 

there are surely other stars to discover who will be incredible

I'll miss Blake on the show, I appreciated that he appreciated old school country, and I liked how supportive he was of his contestants. He also has a quick wit. I think you only need to see how many artists the various singing shows have burned through to realize it's relatively rare. 

 

I hear your point on a new lead, but the history of shows continuing to do well after the main coach/judge/main character leaves though are few and far between (Idol needed a year cancelled and a new network)

Obviously, Blake was one of the pillars of the show and it will therefore leave a huge void, but I am confident that this departure will breathe new life into the world for us to discover other stars.

 

i could see Keith Urban take his place, because on the Australian version he always reminds me of Blake, always turns to country, is funny, good coach

 

then there are others who could come and who will be good, but yes at the end of season 23, there will be a little twinge in the heart as we say in France, a page turns and another opens

This sounds all like April Fools day ,lol . Yay on Niall . He and Harry are the only 1D members who I think turned out decent . But I used to hate Blake but warmed up to him in recent years . Hope Morgan Wallen doesn't replace him 🤢

This may be an unpopular opinion but I’m kinda glad that he’s leaving. I love Blake and what he brings to the show but I think it’s time for a big change on the show. The last few seasons have been a bit bland in the coaching panel, so changing it up would be interesting. Plus it’s about time that we get a female country coach on the panel.

I think no one thought about yet, but we're about to face the biggest facebook meltdown in The Voice history with Blake leaving, it's going to be ugly... :nukewave:

About the future of the show - Blake's departure could basically go in both ways. 

The first one - the show without him will lose a massive amount of viewers. Come on, when minivan won't see Blake on a screen, they would just turn it off. With that, I see them continuing it until S25 as a finale season and that's it.

Or the second one - the show without Blake would just reinvent itself. The most likely, John and Kelly would have to carry the show on their backs in S24, but it could be a really cool way of getting more new coaches, maybe older ones, more familiar to older public - Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire. I just don't know if there is gonna be an audience for that tho.

right and with the way broadcast tv has been going down and ratings have been plummeting, i could see the show ending in a few years

Wdym, it’s going to be beautiful :wub:

 

In all seriousness, Blake will be missed but I do think it’s his time to go. If the show dies without him, so be it, 20+ seasons is more than enough for me.
