Adam Levine anunció a través de las redes sociales su retiró oficial como juez del famoso programa de concursos musical "The Voice".

El líder de Maroon 5 dio a conocer la noticia este viernes a través de una larga publicación en su cuenta de Instagram, añadiendo que el programa "se convirtió en una experiencia que da forma a la vida que estará cerca de mi corazón para siempre". 


About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ We had no idea what we were doing or where it was going. After the first day of shooting, I sat there, stunned. I said to myself “theres some magic here. Something is definitely happening.” It went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever. Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life. Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know. Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. 4 musicians all at once is a lot. Sainthood is imminent. Thank you to Paul Mirkovich and the band for their ridiculously hard work and learning more songs than maybe any band ever. �� Thank you to the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum. To the amazingly talented vocalists who competed on the show and blew my mind on a daily basis. And, BLAKE FUCKIN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life. Kelly and John, take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both. And lastly, to all of the loyal voice fans, there’s literally no show without you guys. For me, it was time to move on. Your support has meant EVERYTHING. And Lastly, I’d like to thank my manager Jordan for convincing me to take that meeting. �� What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much. ❤️ Adam

Gracias a todos los que apoyaron este largo y extraño giro a la izquierda en un lugar al que nunca pensé que iría 

"Gracias Carson Daly por cuidar a los músicos y asegurarse de que nuestros zapatos estuvieran atados y de que tuviéramos nuestras loncheras. Tú eres la columna vertebral de esto y te apreciamos más de lo que sabes", se lee en el post. 

Levine se integró como parte del jurado original del programa ganador del Emmy producido por NBC en 2011, al lado de Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton y CeeLo Green. 


A rare moment of tenderness. ❤️
