NBC’s ‘The Voice’: Could Blake Shelton leave after season 3?

There’s no questioning that being on “The Voice” has done some pretty great things for one of its coaches in Blake Shelton; however, it has also made life pretty hard on him when it comes to his ability to do what he loves: recording country music and touring around the country. Eventually, something is going to give there, and we could see that very thing happen at the end of this season given NBC’s strategy to air two seasons of the singing show a year.

Speaking to “Access Hollywood” in a new interview, Blake strongly hinted that he may be done with the show after season 3, if nothing else for at least a season to get his focus back on where he wants it to be:

“I don’t know how much longer I’m even going to do it … It’s their decision [for us to leave], in that they’re the ones choosing to do back to back seasons. They really leave us no other option. As far as Christina and Adam and Cee Lo and I — if we want to tour, there’s not a chance of that doing back to back seasons. That’s not acceptable to me.”

Out of all of the coaches to appear on the show, Blake’s probably had the greatest career boost of all. Before the show, he was just another male country signer without much of a mainstream audience; now, he is well-known as one of the biggest and funniest personalities on reality TV. He’s also a perfect judge in that he can be critical while still being nice.

Would you watch “The Voice” without Blake or one of the other original coaches? If you want to hear what Christina Aguilera recently had to say about some of the other singing competitions out there, be sure to head on over to the link here.
