New reports have come out regarding Blake Shelton’s feelings about Adam Levine leaving The Voice.

According to US Weekly, Shelton was one of the many individuals shocked by Levine’s unexpected announcement. The country singer commented on the surprise situation, saying: “I didn’t expect it. I didn’t expect Adam to pull the trigger like he did. … We all knew he was getting to the point — it was 16 seasons he had been doing the show, and it’s hard to keep him focused on anything. He was ready to move on. … I was pretty upset that Adam was gone.”

Shelton originally expressed his shock and dismay about the surprise decision back in May. “After 16 seasons that changed both of ours [sic] lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet,” he shared on social media at the time. Shelton has expressed his excitement, however, after Gwen Stefani was confirmed to be replacing Levine. This addition will help “soften the blow” of Levine leaving, according to Shelton.
