Not only will The Voice crown its champion on Tuesday, it will also serve as Blake Shelton’s last episode of the show. He announced in October 2022 that he was retiring from The Voice, which he has served as a coach since its inception in 2011.

He took to social media for the announcement, saying, “I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided that it’s time to step away from The Voice after next season. This show changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me.”

On Tuesday (May 16), Shelton shared an Instagram story – and a tweet – from his final day EVER of rehearsals with his remaining two contestants on The Voice. He showed all the people who work hard behind the scenes to get the show filmed. They were all giving him a huge round of applause.

“Just wrapped up filming 23 seasons of rehearsals with all these dipsticks! What a ride,”  he wrote on top of the video.

We can only imagine how emotional things will get moving forward. Watch footage of his last rehearsal below.
