Despite Carson Daly trying to douse any gossip on Today over Adam Levine’s planned exit from The Voice, the real story seems to be coming out. Adam flirting heavily with Blake Shelton was apparently NBC’s favorite part of the show. So the news that he’s leaving isn’t sitting well with the network. The word now is that he’s been wanting to leave for a while as well having an ongoing shit fit about changes made in the show’s structure. He alleged openly demonstrated so during the taping of the show’s semi-finals on May 12 and at the NBC upfronts the next day. So NBC, unchange shit and let Adam share Blake’s chair with him. Problem solved.
Terrible news for any future contestant of The Voice who was hoping for one of those red chairs swivel around and see the owner of California’s least-threatening bundle of tattoos staring back at them. Adam Levine, the only member of Maroon 5 you can name, has announced that he’s officially done with The Voice after sixteen seasons.
Now you know that if you really want to hurt Boy George, be a contestant on The Voice Australia and tell him that nobody cares if you play guitar. That’ll do it.
Christina Aguilera has a new album to promote, so she did an interview with Allie Jones for Billboard. While I just assume any interview with the likes of Christina or Mariah Carey includes them doing vocal runs and trying to hit the whistle register, she talks to Billboard about how she didn’t exactly have the best of times doing The Voice, and we shouldn’t expect to see her spinning around on a chair unless it’s at her lawyer’s office.

Kelly Clarkson was supposedly in talks to make her grand return to American Idol when ABC brings it back from the morgue next year, but there’s been a twist bigger than the one that Ryan Seacrest’s panties get into when his hairstylist uses the wrong kind of pomade. TMZ said that Kelly was making room in her schedule to shoot American Idol, but it turns out that she was making room in her schedule to shoot Idol’s nemesis The Voice. NBC snatching Kelly Clarkson away from ABC is going to lead to the NBC Peacock v. Mickey Mouse bitch fight I’ve been waiting for.
Since Whitney Houston’s estate popped the doody bubble that was the hologram that looked nothing like her, The Voice needed to replace that creepy duet with something, so they called in the country’s most wanted donut terrorist Ariana Grande!
Before Curly Sue (birth certificate name: Alisan Ann Porter) became America’s sweetheart once again by winning The Voice for Team Christina, her coach got into a screaming match with Ariana Grande. While dressed like a Televangelist Bratz doll, Ariana sang her new single “Into You” before going into “Dangerous Woman.” Everything was going fine until Xtina prowled out with hair that was supposed to say, “I was freshly fucked,” but instead said, “I was freshly jumped by a pack of raccoons who like to pull hair.” That hair is very “Beth Chapman after getting attacked by a swarm of bees.” That hair was a preview for the messiness that was about to go down.
After Xtina did her part, Ariana turned up the volume on her vocal cords and it became clear that it was about to become a battle of the yodels and the only casualties would be our eardrums. Ariana and Xtina trying to TKO each other with their belts starts off at around the 3:33 mark below:

All those growls, runs and whooooos. It sounds like a brawl between a frog, a cat and an owl while sky diving. They sound how Xtina’s hair looks. That said, it was the performance of the night and I’d rather Xtina and donut hater fist me in the ears without lube by trying to outdo each other than listen to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s duet again.
Because we’re on the subject of Grande messes, here’s hyper troll doll Frankie Grande in a denim onesie at a Disney event earlier this month:
