Although there is still plenty of time left before the sound Season 22 announces the winner, and fans have already received some major news regarding what’s coming to the show. It was recently announced that longtime coach Blake Shelton will be leaving the series after season 23, much to the disappointment of longtime viewers. Now, series host Carson Daly is opening up, and he’s having some strong feelings.
While the sound Watching over a dozen coaches sit down and leave the red chairs, Blake Shelton has been around since the start. It was definitely fun seeing him confuse him with his fellow coaches and have some memorable moments on screen (like the time he went to fight with his wife Gwen Stefani over a contestant). It’s the end of an era, revealed by Carson Daly ET He’s not exactly excited about it:
It’s no secret that Carson Daly and Blake Shelton are close, and Daly even presided over the wedding of Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Daly and Shelton even have joint birthday parties, which indicates their closeness in the future. Also, just like Shelton, Daley has been on the show since it started, so it’s no surprise that he’d be feeling very bad about it.
But just because his friend is leaving, that doesn’t mean Carson Daly isn’t happy for him. Later in the interview, he touched on the various other obligations his friend and colleague currently has while discussing the evolution of the reality contest show:
the sound It would definitely be different without Blake Shelton, but it’s good to see that there are no hard feelings amongst any of the stars about his passing. Meanwhile, Carson Daly isn’t the only series star who has expressed his thoughts on Blake Shelton’s departure. Fellow coach John Legend, who will be leaving at the end of Season 22 after seven seasons, has opened up about Shelton, and he also understands why the country singer decided to leave.
And of course, wife and fellow trainer Gwen Stefani also shared her thoughts on Blake Shelton’s exit. Stephanie will be leaving (again) after this current season, so we won’t get any more on-screen banter from the pair. She knows how much we will miss him once he is gone. Their departure and others signal that the show is entering a whole new era. Even so, one can only wish Shelton all the best as he leaves the series behind. Fingers crossed he returns at some point on the road and meets up with Carson Daly and his buddies.
New episodes of the sound Broadcast Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Check the CinemaBlend TV schedule for 2022 for other small screen shows, too!
