As fans well know, Levine was one of the original Coaches on the American iteration of The Voice alongside Blake Shelton, CeeLo Green, and Christina Aguilera. Levine and Shelton quickly became fan favorites by cultivating a sibling-like rivalry right off the bat. "It really was like watching two brothers try to beat each other up on TV every week," Shelton said during a pre-recorded guest appearance on The Season 25 finale.

"I was ready to not be doing it anymore ... for a little bit," Levine said of his decision to leave the series in a 2019 interview with Howard Stern. "When it all naturally happened, I was like, 'Okay, this feels right.' For better or worse, the moment in which we decided to walk away felt really good. This was the right time for me to go. For eight-and-a-half years, I was so busy — [I] had the band, [I] had The Voice. I was beyond fortunate to go through all of it because it was a life-altering experience being on that show ... and then it got to the point where I got married, I had two kids, and I wanted to spend time with them."
