Who Could Replace Blake Shelton on ‘The Voice’?

A country singer  to replace  on , but don't take our word for it.

Longtime coach John Legend said that in 2022, and he suggested one of the 11 artists on our list of possible replacements for the OG coach.

"I could see, like, Carrie doing it," Legend told , referring to . "She's in the NBC family ... she sings on our Sunday night broadcast () every Sunday."

Blake Shelton has been a coach for all 23 seasons of .He announced he'll exit after the current Season 23, in May 2023.Host Carson Daly is the only other cast member to last all 23 seasons.

It's a valid point, and network affiliation does seem to grease the wheels. Remember, Carson Daly had a late night NBC talk show when he started hosting, and even Shelton was part of the short-lived  on NBC before he got the gig in 2011.

The reason why  needs to keep it country may or may not be obvious. With seven country winners (and nine total Team Blake winners), it's the dominant genre. Country fans watch and vote, thus plumping up the coveted 18-49-year-old demographic (for more evidence of this, look at  where four of the last six winners have been country singers).
