During his appearance on the show, Shelton mentioned that they're still in touch. We talk. We never have lost contact," the country star said.


The country star mentioned that he spoke to the Maroon 5 frontrunner just a week ago.

"I had been drinking for a few hours, and I don't know what he was doing, but I was at home in Oklahoma, by myself," he said. "we ended up FaceTiming each other for 45 minutes, just nonsense talk."



When the coaches were talking, they talked about the things that they couldn't discuss on TV.

"Just stuff that you could never say on TV. It was just a typical conversation," said Shelton. The country star even joked about making fun of the "Access" hosts.



When asked about the departure of the "girls like you" singer, Shelton mentioned that it was a loss to the show.

"It sucks not having Adam on the show. He's been there since the beginning, and it's hard not to have somebody that stupid to make fun of," he quipped.

"Maybe someday, who knows, he might end up coming back. I doubt it, but maybe." In one of his playful dabs, he mentioned that the coaches in the new season are more talented than Levine.

Adam's vacant seat has been filled by Shelton's girlfriend and returning "Voice" coach Gwen Stefani. Shelton was praising Stefani during the interview.
