    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out Levine.
    Whole show needs a revamp.

    • TurkeyLurkey says:

      This is long overdue. The douchebromance is why I stopped watching years ago. They really need Blake to go as well. There are plenty of country singers who could’ve filled that slot. I always felt with the voice many times that people were actually voting more for the coach instead of the singers. Even the coaches talk about how they won the show. Um, no the singer is actually the winner. That always annoyed me. Maybe that’s why the singers mostly go nowhere, people aren’t as invested in them but are more invested in the coach they like.

      • Lara K says:

        No Voice contestant has really gone anywhere!
        I mean, American Idol launched actual superstars – Grammy and Oscar winners FFS. This show is all about the coaches and frankly what’s the point!

      • FHMom says:

        Not only that, but they are tied to a bad contract. It’s better to come in second or third.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        Agreed. That’s my biggest complaint about The Voice. American Idol and X-factor are better at producing artists who actually get somewhere.

  2. Christo says:

    I could tell that last fall’s debacle with Reagan Strange and his Superbowl performance were like a 1-2 punch that chipped away at what remaining energy/relevance he had.

  3. Nancypants says:

    I say this all the time and bless his heart but I don’t know how he became a singer.
    When his music comes on a radio, I turn it off.

    Maybe it’s just me but I HATE that shrill, high-pitched, ear-splitting, voice of his.
    I guess it’s kind of unique and maybe that’s how he’s made a living at it but I hate it.

    • Michael says:

      You and me both. Most of the singers on the show are better than him

    • BengalCat😻 says:

      You are not alone. His voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me and he comes across as a skeevy egomaniac. He’s not as talented or as attractive as he thinks he his, but to each their own I guess.

  4. hogtowngooner says:

    He’s such a douche.

  5. sommolierlady says:

    Naomi Wolf is a nut case, plain and simple.

    None of Adam’s singers have won in almost 10 seasons so I’m not surprised he’s leaving. Hopefully he will find another career all together because his singing is horrible.

  6. Ann says:

    Show’s fixed anyway. Just like John L. , the new judge will win next season. I’ll never watch again.

    • Lucy2 says:

      John’s singer was by far the best though, and deserved to win.

      Adam has needed to go for a while now. I watched the last 2 or 3 seasons and he’s whiny and ineffectual.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Absolutely agree, Lucy2. Maelyn is the most gifted singer I’ve heard in quite a while. I can’t wait to buy her album.

  7. Yes Doubtful says:

    And Gwen Stefani is replacing him. Ugh…I’m so sick of Blake and Gwen’s love parade. I won’t be watching. Back to Adam…this is very sudden, no? I’m wondering what really happened behind the scenes.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      He enraged the brass at NBC by acting like a petulant child at the Upfronts, which was the last straw.

      • Yes Doubtful says:

        That definitely sounds like something he would do… And of course they bring Gwen back on board to ensure that Blake stays even though she’s terrible at judging.

  8. Ramona Q. says:

    From what I’ve read, Adam and Blake have said that no winner has been a huge success because the show is locked into a contract with a TERRIBLE record company that does no promotion.

  9. Jayna says:

    I really like Adam. I watch it here and there. My sister watches the show every season. She has said for a while now that the country music voting bloc is huge and why that genre wins a lot. They really bring in the votes.

    It was a nice ride. You know when it’s time to go. He has other things on his plate and a young family now. I read his whole post. I felt it was a very thoughtful post, and I liked how he thanked all of the the people behind the scenes putting on the show.

    • Guest says:

      I also like Adam! I love the banter between him and blake. I’ve watched a lot of the seasons, mostly the blind audition part of it, then I’ll lose some interest. I agree with your sister the county music block is huge, which I’m kind of surprised at. I think that’s one of the reasons he left. I’ll miss him!

    • moo says:

      I like him too! I thought he was a douche before I watched the show but he seems like a really nice guy. For his sake I hope that’s true.

  10. BeanieBean says:

    I just couldn’t finish reading all of the stable genius stuff. I know it’s best to keep an eye on your enemy, but gah, can’t stomach that a**hole.

  11. Gwen will do well. Wish it was Jennifer Hudson though. Maybe next year. We will miss Adam. Good luck with your new show Adam!

  12. It's A Dry Heave says:

    Ugh! His super bowl performance…. Adam’s dance moves were whiter than an NFL owners meeting!!!

  13. LeaTheFrench says:

    Dear wonderful Celebitchy team of writers, just a quick note to say that I would have loved to see more coverage of the fashion at the Cannes festival. Maybe next year?

  14. Mariposa says:

    That Naomi Klein story is so juicy. Imagine being caught out like that in an interview! How did the whole book get researched, written and published with no-one picking up that mistake? Those tweets were hilarious.

    • Redrosetta says:

      My secondhand embarrassment for this public shaming is significant. Apparently she has a. reputation for poorly researched work. What are editors for?!

  15. Snowflake says:

    I need some new gossip. I’ve got 4 days off and no money to do anything! 🙂

  16. Heat says:

    Juuuust realized that it is a long weekend in the US, and I don’t need to worry that there are no posts today. Phew. Lol.
