Before Stepping Down As A Coach, Blake Shelton Reflects On His Time With "The Voice"
It’s the end of an era, y’all. Blake Shelton has been a coach on The Voice since its beginning, and as the 23rd season wraps, the time has come to say goodbye.
At twelve years, Blake is the longest-serving coach on NBC’s hit singing competition show. Day one fans will know him as the “most winningest” coach - with a total of nine contestants, including superstars Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope. Some may recall his signature “finger-point” as he convinced auditionees to join #TeamBlake, after he turned his chair. Audiences have consistently praised the insight, intention, and genuine care he gave to his team.
The superstar recently appeared on The Today Show to discuss his legendary stint as a Voice coach. “I mean, I met my wife [Gwen Stefani] on the show. It’s changed my life in every way it possibly can, you know from a personal standpoint.” reflected Blake.
Blake recalls reading several reviews naming him “the only star The Voice ever found.” We think many of the show’s winners and contestants shined pretty bright as well - but we agree that Blake’s impact on and contributions to the show are unmatched.
As viewers, we’re going to cherish every moment of the current season, which has been a sentimental one. The Voice truly will not be the same without him.
