The NBC show "The Voice," premiered on Monday night, and fans shared on social media that it "Isn't the same" without Adam Levine.
Despite getting replaced by Gwen Stefani who used to be a judge on NBC's "The Voice," Adam Levine still holds a special place in the heart of the singing show's fans. So much so, that they shared on social media that the show "Isn't the same," without the Maroon 5 frontman.
A CAMPAIGN TO BRING HIM BACK
The show which premiered on Monday night saw fans taking to Twitter to share how much they miss Levine, and asking if he could return. One person tweeted,
"Hey the voice, people have been saying #TheVoice isn't the same without @AdamLevine. Adam, where are you? Any change of mind [on] coming back? Am still a forever fan. #VoicePremiere."
I can't watch it… loved you, and the joking around with Blake, and the others
Another loyal fan of the show tweeted,
"Time to watch #TheVoice. While I am glad to have @GwenStefani back, it's just not going to be the same without @AdamLevine."
WATCHING WITHOUT LEVINE IS TORTUOUS
Some felt Levine's absence more strongly than others, which made one fan of the singer to tweet,
"@AdamLevine; Adam, I just [want to] tell you that I'm [going to] miss you so much on The Voice, I can't watch it… loved you, and the joking around with Blake, and the others."
We stay in touch. We'll be friends from now on
The fan added that it was a place of escape, and the show had a lot of moments that led to tears and laughter, calling it "Therapeutic."
Another person chose to address NBC directly, tweeting,
"@NBCTheVoice, oh I miss so much @AdamLevine there. Isn't the same; who's going to fight with Blake."
THERE'S A SILVER LINING
Levine co-judged the singing show since it debuted in 2011 alongside Blake Shelton, and at the time of his departure in May, the show also had John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
Fans loved to watch the dynamic between the "Girls Like You," singer and the country music star, and based on a recent interview by the latter, the two continued their "Bromance" away from "The Voice."
Blake revealed that he and Levine are still in touch, and FaceTimed for 45 minutes, "Talking nonsense." The Oklahoma native said,
"We stay in touch. We'll be friends from now on."
He added that Levine might return in the future, but he's not holding his breath, and fans of the show might want to take a page out of his book, and not hold theirs either.
"The Voice" airs on Monday, 8 pm ET, on NBC.
