All of these Coaches have sung Shelton's praises in the past. "[Blake], honestly, there's been times I almost pee myself laughing. He is so funny," Cabello told People. 

Meanwhile, current Coach Horan has said about Shelton, “Blake, he’s like a dad to me. Y’know, he’s really helped me during the show. I’ve really enjoyed his company and watching him has been a real honor...It's been amazing to work with [him and Clarkson] Meeting them for the first time, the bond that I’ve grown with them has been amazing. It's been so funny to dive into that Southern sense of humor with them and see the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. It's been hilarious."

And of course, we can't forget about the beyond-sweet words Clarkson had for Shelton in an interview with NBC Insider. "I can't stand him, but I also love him," she said jokingly. "...[Knowing it's his last season], we get the time to actually, like, lift him up and say how great he is...He is the ultimate Coach on this show. Everybody knows that. He's won the most, and he, honest to God, helps the Artists afterwards. And it's an incredible thing that he's done for so many Artists. It's a loss for The Voice."

“[The Voice] has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me," Shelton said in a statement announcing his departure. "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."

He continued, "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 who are chasing their dreams. It would not happen without you!"
