'The Voice' Receives Emmy Awards Nomination but Some Fans Say, 'No Adam, No Voice'
“The Voice” recently received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, but not all fans had positive reactions after a judge, Adam Levine’s, exit from the show.
The long-running singing competition series “The Voice” is nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, which they recently shared on their Instagram account. While some fans congratulated the show, many were in disapproval.
“This is The Emmys,” captioned the post. “Congrats are in order!”
Fans took to the comment section their diverse reaction after hearing the news. Some complained about the awarding after “The Voice’s” pioneer judge, Adam Levine, left the show a few months back.
On the other hand, there were also a handful who commended the show for a job well-done and congratulated the program for the possible win. One comment read:
“Absolutely the only television show we watch, otherwise, the tv is off!!!”
Levine left the show in May but never fully disclosed the reason behind his exit. Despite him leaving the show, the judge had no bad blood with any of his colleagues and penned a goodbye message on Instagram.
“I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life,” Levine wrote.

About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ We had no idea what we were doing or where it was going. After the first day of shooting, I sat there, stunned. I said to myself “theres some magic here. Something is definitely happening.” It went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever. Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life. Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know. Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. 4 musicians all at once is a lot. Sainthood is imminent. Thank you to Paul Mirkovich and the band for their ridiculously hard work and learning more songs than maybe any band ever. 😂 Thank you to the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum. To the amazingly talented vocalists who competed on the show and blew my mind on a daily basis. And, BLAKE FUCKIN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life. Kelly and John, take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both. And lastly, to all of the loyal voice fans, there’s literally no show without you guys. For me, it was time to move on. Your support has meant EVERYTHING. And Lastly, I’d like to thank my manager Jordan for convincing me to take that meeting. 😊 What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much. ❤️ Adam
The reason behind the judge’s exit was thought to be the changes made in the rules of the contest specifically, the Live Cross Battles, which cost him to lose his team as finals came closer.
The 40-year-old Maroon 5 lead singer continued to thank the show, the host, and his fellow judges, especially Blake Shelton whom he considers his “brother.”
The other nominees under the category are CBS’ “The Amazing Race,” NBC’s “America Ninja Warrior,” Netflixes “Nailed It,” VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
