Blake Shelton Admits It’s ‘Hard’ to See Adam Levine Leave ‘The Voice’ After 16 Seasons Together (Exclusive) – “I can’t imagine, honestly, what the show is gonna feel like at first without Adam there,” he confessed. “I mean, we’re about to start filming the 17th season of the show, and Adam has been my frenemy from day one, you know, down there on the end.” “I think we all knew, on the inside of the show, that he was ready to make a move. For a guy like Adam, who is just — he’s the most ADD person I think I’ve met — for him to have even done it as long as he did without wanting to move on to the next thing, is amazing. But I know he’s happy with his decision. Doesn’t mean I am, or any of us [are happy], but at least they were able to soften the blow a little bit and bring Gwen [Stefani] back,” Shelton continued. – See the Video at Entertainment Tonight

‘American Idol’s’ Blake Lewis Claims Allison Mack Tried to Recruit Him into Nxivm Sex Cult – Former “American Idol” contestant Blake Lewis has claimed Allison Mack tried to recruit him into the Nxivm sex cult. On Thursday, the singer, who was the runner-up on Season 6 of the reality competition series, made the allegation in a comment on a clip where Mack’s former “Smallville” co-stars — Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum — reacted to the actress’ role in Nxivm. “Dude, Allison and her man tried to get me to be a part of that whole thang,” Lewis wrote. “Not sure I ever told you about it.” TooFab reached out to Lewis for comment, but the singer declined to elaborate on his claim. – Read more at Too Fab

‘American Idol’ helped Wade Cota feel better about himself despite scrutiny over weight – A month after finishing fourth on “American Idol,” Wade Cota was back in Phoenix, staring down a hometown crowd of 20,000 at Ak-Chin Pavilion after being welcomed to the stage by country superstar Luke Bryan, an “Idol” judge who took an instant shine to Cota’s raspy vocal style. It was the largest crowd he’d ever faced. And given their reaction to his fiery rendition of the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, “Simple Man,” the 27-year-old singer would’ve earned a pretty healthy share of votes with that performance. Now, he’s headlining the Marquee Theatre on Saturday, June 29. It’s a homecoming show that doubles as a major-label showcase. “With my voice,” Cota says, “I would never go out and sing a Queen song or an Elton John song. But those are the songs that were given to me. I feel like if I had been able to pick my own songs the whole time, I would’ve had a better shot. But that’s not on anybody. That’s just how the show works.” “It was the most amount of hate that I’ve ever experienced in my entire life,” he says. “And my biological father was the devil. I’d never experienced the kind of hate like people gave me when I was on the show. I mean, obviously some people liked me because I got voted Top 4 in the nation out of 200,000 people. But you know, I could’ve done without all the hate. Rather than dwell on the downside of “Idol,” he’s taking the opportunities the show has given him and pursuing a record deal with his friends in SugarWater, the band he was fronting before his audition. – Read more at AZCentral
