Kelly Clarkson Sparks Fans' Debate as She Speaks out on Adam Levine's 'The Voice' Exit
Kelly Clarkson spoke out about the departure of her co-judge, Adam Levine from "The Voice," and it led to a debate among fans of the show on Twitter.
Adam Levine's sudden departure from the "NBC" singing show "The Voice" took fans of the show by surprise and as they await the new season, they are trying to come to terms with the fact that they will not see the "Maroon 5" lead singer when it returns.

The country singer wrote that she understood that he has been on the show for years, and wants to step away, but called coming to the studio and not seeing him "Weird."
Clarkson added that starting a show from the ground up is a big deal, and fans of the show while agreeing with that statement, equally have a different view.
The singer's statement sparked a debate as many didn't know what to expect when the show returns. Others felt it was time for the "Girls Like You" singer to move ahead and pursue new endeavors.A Twitter user — @PeicebyPeice_KC — replying to the "American Idol" alum's post wrote,
"You can tell he has been uninterested for a while."
Another follower — Carol Elias — wrote:
"While I truly enjoy the banter between Blake and Adam, I feel that Adam stopped enjoying it a couple of seasons ago…"
She added that she looked forward to seeing the new dynamics on "The Voice" and seeing the singer in his new show "Songland."
The fans and Clarkson are not the only ones shocked by the "Maroon 5" member's departure. Blake Shelton also reacted; he said he was trying to wrap his head around Levine leaving the show that changed "Both their lives" and will miss working with him.
Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore. After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot.— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) May 24, 2019
The "Wait" singer had a problematic season 16, and by the semi-finals, he had no singer left on his team, and he expressed his displeasure on what he called "A new show I don't understand."
Things appeared to be worse during his performance with his fellow judges at the "NBC" upfront in New York, he looked unhappy and stiff all through, and fast forward to weeks after, he quit the show.
He was one of the longest-running judges on the show, and Shelton holds the title alone now. Clarkson and John Legend will return for the new season, and Gwen Stefani will replace Levine.
Season 17 returns in September on "NBC."
