The singing competition was pre-tapingSeason 16’s Semifinals on a Sunday vs. airing live on Monday because Levine and fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend were due at the aforementioned event in New York the next day.

By all accounts, Levine did not want to attend that Sunday taping. As one source tells TVLine, the Maroon 5 frontman expressed frustration beforehand at having to be present when, at that point, he had no artists left in the Season 16 race. And he did not hide his frustration. One eyewitness tells TVLine that Levine was “very difficult” during the entire taping, refusing opportunities to offer commentary to the other judges’ performers.

The Voice Semifinals Recap: Whose Beatles Duets Didn't Come Together?

The Voice Semifinals Recap: Whose Beatles Duets Didn't Come Together? As The Voice’s Top 8 headed for the stage Monday night, I couldn’t help but think what a weird, weird finale we seemed to be headed for. 

Adam Levine ’ s abrupt exit from NBC ’ s The Voice has the rumor mill turning. After 16 seasons, Levine announced his departure from the singing competition Due to a rule change after season 15, each coach didn’t automatically go to the Live Playoffs with the same number of team members, and by the

Did Adam Levine lose his gig as a coach on The Voice because he embarrassed NBC executives? Now we come to the Upfronts the next day. All of The Voice coaches appeared on stage to perform a song together, but, allegedly, Adam Levine continued to show his feelings over said rule change and

At least in part, Levine’s attitude might have stemmed from resentment of a Season 16 rule change that didn’t guarantee that each coach went to the Live Playoffs with the same number of team members. Season 16’s Live Cross Battles — which replaced the trademark Knockouts — cut his team in half (from eight members to four) and ultimately left him with zero singers by the Semifinals. (In Season 15, the Knockouts sent each coach to the Playoffs with six team members).

During the episode that aired May 13, the odd coach out praised Team Blake Shelton’s Andrew Sevener, Team John Legend’s Maelyn Jarmon and Shawn Sounds, and Team Kelly Clarkson’s Rod Stokes, but host Carson Daly didn’t even go to Levine for comment after solo performances by the rest of the Top 8. What’s more, while talking with Stokes, Levine’s disgruntlement with alterations to The Voice‘s format rose to the surface. “I still don’t understand how you’re not on my team. I don’t think anybody does, just ’cause it’s weird how it works now,” he said. “I’m still learning the rules of the new show.”

People are furious at who 'won' the throne on the shocking series finale of 'Game of Thrones'

People are furious at who 'won' the throne on the shocking series finale of 'Game of Thrones' HBO's "Game of Thrones" has ended after eight seasons. The biggest question going into the finale: Who will sit on the Iron Throne when it's all over?

Adam Levine shocked his fans on Friday when it was announced that he was leaving 'The Voice ' after 16 seasons. The news was definitely a surprise, given that the hit NBC singing competition had already announced earlier this month at the NBC upfronts that Levine would be returning alongside

Adam Levine ' s Voice Exit Sparked by Rule Changes , Cinched by Performance That Left NBC Brass ' Furious '. 24 May 2019. By a margin of 54% to 46%, “The Voice ” viewers preferred the performance by one of the other two contenders for the last slot in the Top 4.

But it was when Levine brought his apathy out on stage at Radio City Music Hall — in front of his NBC bosses hosting the annual Upfront showcase of returning and new programming — that things came to a head. Singing on stage alongside his fellow coaches, Levine was near-motionless — a stark contrast to his much more enthusiastic and animated colleagues. “Adam had been checked out for a while,” notes an NBC insider, “but this was a new low. It was essentially the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Paul Telegdy was said to be particularly incensed. The co-chairman of NBC Entertainment witnessed Levine’s performance firsthand and, per multiple sources, was not happy with what he saw. One insider says the exec was “embarrassed” and “furious” that Levine exhibited such indifference in front of the very people (read: advertisers) who pay his $26-million annual salary.

Although accounts differ as to what happened next, one NBC source says Telegdy called for Levine’s immediate firing (a position he quickly backed off on). Another source at the network insists Telegdy and his fellow execs were very appreciative that in the middle of a week of live shows, the coaches flew to New York, on Mother’s Day, to perform early Monday morning.

Levine exited The Voice in May after serving as a coach for 16 seasons. At the time, he called his years on the show “a life-shaping experience A source told TVLine at the time that “ Adam had been checked out for a while,” which culminated in an apathetic performance alongside his fellow Voice

But one thing is clear: Something changed between May 10, when NBC announced that Levine was returning for Season 17, and the morning of May 24, when his exit was announced by Daly on the Today show. As one insider observes, “This was, at the very least, a mutual decision.”

Levine’s rep declined to comment, instead pointing TVLine to the singer’s official statement. An NBC rep similarly declined comment.
