This is the Incredible Offer Maroon 5 Frontman, Adam Levine is Missing Out on as He Leaves ‘The Voice’
Most people may know 40-year-old rocker Adam Levine as the vocalist of the band Maroon 5. However, he’s also managed to build a reputation as one of the coaches in the reality singing competition, ‘The Voice’. But after many productive years on the show, news has it that the musician is leaving the lucrative gig.
After serving as a coach for the show since its premiere season in 2011, news of Levine’s resignation broke out last May. The news came as quite as a surprise for the ‘The Voice’ fans as the singer was actually pegged to appear in the upcoming 17th season of the show.
He will reportedly be replaced by former No Doubt vocalist, Gwen Stefani. She will join the other coaches country singer Blake Shelton, crooner John Legend, and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson.
Fortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any ill feelings involved in Levine’s surprising departure. He even wrote a heartfelt Instagram post about his time on the NBC singing competition. The singer recalled how he was convinced to participate in the show around eight years ago by British television producer Mark Burnett.
Thanking Burnett, Levine then recounted their first day of shooting when he thought to himself that they were making something magical. In the end, he says that being on the show is a life-shaping experience that he will keep close in his heart.
This isn’t the first time that Levine mulled over leaving the show though. According to singer-songwriter Ryan Tedder, he was approached to replace the Maroon 5 frontman on ‘The Voice’ around four years ago. The offer didn’t push through in the end as Levine reportedly changed his mind at the time.
But, aside from the memories he made on the show, it appears that Levine walked away from a lot more when he quit. Apparently, the singer signed on for two more seasons before his departure, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter.
Should he have stayed, he would’ve gotten an estimated total of $30 million for the show’s 17th and 18th seasons. This number was derived from his previous known salary that’s said to be ‘north of $14 million’.
Levine may not mind the loss too much though. The rocker reportedly has a net worth of $90 million so he has a lot of money to fall back on without his gig on ‘The Voice’.
Reasons Behind the Decision
According to People, Levine just wanted to move on and that he has been talking about the decision with ‘The Voice’ host Carson Daly and the other coaches. Aside from this, some news sources are also speculating that there are other reasons which contributed to the coach’s departure.
A source told People that the rockstar had problems with some of the new mechanics introduced in the competition particularly that of the Cross Battles round. Meanwhile, it’s also speculated that the family man is also looking to spend more time with his wife, Behati Prinsloo and their children.
