Alicia Keys: “This Will Be My Last Season” On ‘The Voice’
Sad news for The Voice fans: Alicia Keys is exiting the show.
“Who knows what the future holds, but I know this one is my final season,” she says to TV Insider, though to fellow coach Adam Levine‘s protests: “I’ll tell you what the future holds: you being on the f—— show!”
After being a mentor during season 7 in 2014, Alicia joined the reality competition show last spring alongside Miley Cyrus, replacing coaches Pharrell and Christina Aguilera. Their joining the cast for season 11 was portrayed as a Men in Black-style alien invasion in Voice promos. But first-time coach Alicia quickly acclimated — successfully mentoring We’ McDonald to the finals, while showing she was a force to be reckoned with among Voice veterans Adam and Blake Shelton.
Going into the season 12 finale, Alicia tells TV Insider, “I am excited for this; it’s like a finale for me. That’s why I’m so passionate about my team.” Read the interview with The Voice coaches here.
