Is he actually outta there?

To kick off Season 21 of The Voice, you see, NBC introduced on Ariana Grande.
The younger pop star has already made a powerful impression on viewers, bringing enthusiasm and a contemporary perspective to a present that is been on the air for nicely over a decade at this level.
What does this imply for Shelton, who has been a mainstay on this system because it first premiered?
Or perhaps an entire lot.
“After a decade on the present, producers are quietly looking to replace Blake with somebody youthful and extra present,” wrote Radar Online a pair days in the past, including through an nameless sourrce:
“Blake is great but he is not in Ariana’s league.”
Shelton has been a presence on The Voice since April 2011, even assembly and falling for his second spouse, Gwen Stefani, as a result of his function on the truth present.
Has has grown stale, nevertheless?

“The solely means the present stays contemporary is by continually evolving.
“Huge stars that wouldn’t even consider joining the show a few months ago are now thinking again, thanks to Ariana.”
Is there any fact to this rumor? Or is it mere conjecture?
Moreover, how does Blake really feel about such hypothesis?
We might now have the reply.
On September 24, Grande uploaded a textual content message from her The Voice counterpart that depicted Shelton sharing a hyperlink to 1 article, which claimed:

Not precisely a shock, is it?
We’d must think about Shelton feels fairly snug and safe along with his spot on the long-running sequence.
