The Maroon 5 frontman wrote a lengthy Instagram post on Friday, saying the Emmy-winning show "went on to be a life-shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever." Levine was part of the original lineup of "The Voice" when it launched in 2011, along with Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green. Aguilera and Green have taken breaks from the show, allowing stars like Pharrell Williams, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend to sit in their chairs. Shelton has never left the show. It was not clear if Levine was leaving the show for good. Representatives for the singer and NBC didn't immediately reply to emails seeking comment from The Associated Press.

Thomas Tuchel's achieved the feat despite a late-season wobble that saw them win just three of their last nine top-flight fixtures. Mbappe's strike saw the World Cup winner comfortably end 2018-19 as Ligue 1's top scorer, earning the honour for the first time in his career with 33 goals.
