Kelly Clarkson is leaving The Voice. At least for now. NBC announced the group of coaches for Season 22. Fans found out their favorite singer will not be returning. Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and John Legend will coach the new crop of contestants. Camila Cabello was announced as the new coach.
Gwen returned to the red swiveling chair after she took a hiatus. Camila is replacing Ariana Grande, who made her coaching debut in Season 21. Kelly coached eight seasons of The Voice and won four times, including the last season. So, her break is well-deserved. Yet, fans want to know why she’s leaving the show.
The Voice Season 22 coaches announced
NBC made the official announcement with a special video on Instagram. The clip shows Blake, Gwen, and John singing “Grace Kelly” by Mika. Camila Cabello shows up at the end. Check out the video for yourself here.
The caption reads: “Introducing your Voice Coachees. #TheVoice returns this fall with @blakeshelton, @johnlegend, @gwenstefani, and @camila_cabello.”
Kelly Clarkson fans were disappointed over the news. They broke down when they saw that she wasn’t included in the lineup. This comes amid the rumors that Kelly could leave The Voice for American Song Contest. However, the new singing competition didn’t do so hot when it came to the ratings. It’s unclear whether NBC will renew it for a second season.
- “My girl Kelly is gone.”
- “Wait? Kelly is taking a break? Omg.”
- “Kelly was THE COACH that made each season amazing.”
- “NO NOT KELLY.”
- “Nooo, where’s Kelly. 😢“
As you can see, the fans are devastated. They’re demanding answers on the American Idol alum’s disappearance. Even though Kelly Clarkson won’t be on this season, fans will witness Camila’s coaching skills in the singing competition. The Cuban-born singer is perfect since she rose to fame after she finished in third place on X Factor as part of the girl group Fifth Harmony.
Why Kelly Clarkson is leaving The Voice?
Kelly Clarkson already hinted that she’s saying no to a lot of projects this summer. The singer wants to take a break with her family. Earlier this month, she spoke to Elvis Duran about her summer plans. It came out around the same time as The Voice Season 22 news.
“I literally said ‘no’ to everything this summer,” Kelly Clarkson said on the Elvis Duran Show. “I will not do anything this summer. Since I was 16 years old, I haven’t had a summer off. This is my first summer off. I am taking time.”
She really enjoyed her mini-summer break last year. Kelly brought her kids to Walt Disney World. The “Because of You” singer also went on a girl’s trip with her friends to Las Vegas, where they saw George Strait live in concert.
