THE VOICE season 23 (airing this spring) is undergoing a major coach change, with Chance the Rapper, Niall Horan, Kelly Clarkson, and Blake Shelton tapped as the new panel. Most notably, however, it will be Shelton’s final season with the show.

“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from THE VOICE after season 23,” Shelton said in a statement. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns and I want to thank everyone at THE VOICE from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best. It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow coaches over the years, including my wife, Gwen Stefani! I have to give a huge shoutout to the singers – the ‘Voices’ who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their coach. Lastly, it’s about y’all, the fans, who watch and support these artists, us coaches and everyone at ‘The Voice’ chasing their dreams. It wouldn’t happen without you!”

Shelton has been with the series since season 1, and is the only coach to have appeared in every season. (Carson Daly, who is also back as host, has also been a mainstay on the series.) 

Of the new coaches, Chance the Rapper also released a statement: “I’m thrilled to join THE VOICE as a coach for the next season,” he said. “I’m excited to help other artists get to the next level and make the most of this life-changing experience. Get ready for #teamchance.”

Horan, who has singing competition experience thanks to his time on THE X FACTOR, added, “I’m excited to be joining this season of THE VOICE as a coach. I’m looking forward to meeting and mentoring the new crop of talent while we battle it out with the other teams!”
