Adam also tells HollywoodLife.com why he’d never leave ‘The Voice,’ unlike two of his fellow coaches.
Blake Shelton‘s reign of musical terror has finally come to an end! Adam Levine‘s team claimed Voice victory Dec. 17, making this the first time Blake hasn’t won in three seasons. And how did Adam feel about Tessanne Chin helping him rise to the top? HollywoodLife.com caught up with Adam after the live finale, and he told us exactly what was on his mind.
“I haven’t had time [to rub it in] but I can’t wait!” Adam told us. “I have to go find him and tell him to kiss my ass!”
Of course, Adam’s jab was all in good fun. In fact, he told us his relationship with all of his fellow coaches — including Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green — has never been better.
“It is stronger and better than its ever been,” he said of the team’s unity. “We’re now all friends at this point! You know, there’s nothing like the first group who does this kind of thing. I don’t think any of us really knew or had a clue what was going to happen when we started. I told them all tonight that it will never be the same like it is now. I love those guys, I like to keep this legacy strong; you haven’t seen the last of this four yet!”
Adam Levine: Will He Ever Leave ‘The Voice’?
That last bit was in reference to Shakira and Usher replacing Christina and Cee Lo as coaches in season six, just as they did in season four. But don’t expect Adam to be vacating his swivel chair any time soon.
“I mean, it really depends on how tired I get — but I would say never,” he told us when we asked if he has any plans to leave. “Unless there’s a time that I fail to stand up.”
As for The Voice‘s winner, Adam had nothing but good things to say about the pride and joy of his team.
“Tessanne is electric,” he told us. “They all deserved it, but Tessanne was in the right groove at the right moment. She killed it.”
