Is Kelly Clarkson leaving The Voice?
Two coaches will be leaving the upcoming season of the popular singing competition The Voice US, including American singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson.
2021’s season saw Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Ariana Grande take the famous red chairs. However, series 22 will return without Clarkson or Grande, the “One Last Time” singer whose stint on the show only lasted for a single season (so far).
In January 2022, 40-year-old Clarkson hinted during Instagram Q&A with her fans that she would be making some changes to her personal and professional life this year, particularly so she could spend more time with her children, OK Magazine reports.
Who are the judges for 2022?
Former Fifth Harmony star turned solo artist Camila Cabello is returning to her reality roots, after starring on X Factor, by joining The Voice after Kelly Clarkson exits.
Cabello will be coaching alongside Blake Shelton, John Legend and the approaching season will also see the return of Gwen Stefani.
@NBCTheVoice gave a warm welcome to the new judges by announcing the future panel via their social media platforms as the stars were shown collaborating on a verse from Mika’s 2007 hit “Grace Kelly.”

Singer’s success on the show explored
During her eight seasons as coach, Kelly won a very impressive four of them, with acts Brynn Cartelli, Chevel Shepherd, Jake Hoot and her most recent season 21 success with sibling trio Girl Named Tom.
The US show has always had a rotating roster of celeb coaches and the swivelling chairs remain open for former coaches to return.
Just like Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera, who have all left the show and returned at a later date, Kelly and Ariana could also do the same and appear in a future series.
Following the news of her departure for next season’s showing, a fan named @PieceByPiece_KC decided to put together a few of their favourite looks from her time on the show in a collection of images posted via Twitter:
