Gwen’s exit may come as a surprise to viewers, especially since she just won the show for the very first time and her chemistry (and adorable banter) with fellow coach and fiancé Blake Shelton is loved by many. This sudden move begs two important questions: Why did Gwen Stefani leave The Voice? And more importantly, will she ever come back to the show?
Why did Gwen Stefani leave The Voice?
So far, Gwen has been quiet about her decision to leave the the show. Right after season 19 of The Voice wrapped, she released her first solo single in years titled “Let Me Reintroduce Myself.” This song is said to be part of her fifth studio album, which she says will drop “probably soon.” So, it’s possible that Gwen is taking the next few months to focus on her music, similar to what other coaches have done in the past.
