The iconic team of judges and incredibly talented contestants have made many memories on ‘The Voice’ but recently, it has come to light that Adam Levine, could have left the show 4 years ago as he was tired and wanted to take a break from it all.
The ‘Secrets’ singer Ryan Tedder revealed during his appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Falon’ that he was contacted by team voice to possibly take over the Grammy winner’s position should he bow out of the NBC series.
“I initially got pitched four years ago on ‘potentially’ replacing Adam on ‘The Voice’ ‘cause he was just tired. He was like, “I think I’m going to step off for a minute” They called to see if I would do it.” 39-year-old songwriter recalled.
“And before I could even decide, they called back and said, false alarm, he’s back on. But we have this other show that you might be better for,” he added.
Tedder has been working as a judge on another music reality show called ‘Songland’. “People have been obsessed with watching cooking shows for the last 15 years. People love to see how their favorite food is made.” Tedded said as he talked about his show.
“The top 2 most consumed things in the world are food and music, but there hasn’t been a how about how you cook music” he added.
ADAM WAS TIRED BY THE SHOW'S SET FORMAT
With Tedder occupied with his music cooking show, Carson Daly was the first to announce that the chair of Adam will be filled by none other Blake Shelton's girlfriend and a veteran on the chair -- Gwen Stefani. The announcement was made on the Today show on May 24.
“After 16 seasons, Adam Levine, our beloved coach, and friend has decided to leave ‘The Voice’,” Carson, 45, said at the time. “Adam was one of the original coaches that launched the show, winning the competition three times and inspiring many of the artists he worked closely with over the years.”
Apparently, the star was getting tired of the show due to its set format and heavy reliance on country music.
"I actually gained some respect with that decision. It's good to follow your heart," said Christina Aguilera, a former judge on the show. Implying that the Maroon 5 singer would go back to making music.
