Adam Levine has turned his chair for the final time.

The Maroon 5 frontman announced season 16 of The Voice would be his last as a coach, revealing the decision in an Instagram post Friday morning.

Levine has been with the talent competition show since its premiere in 2011 and is one of two judges, along with Blake Shelton, to remain as a coach during the show's 16 seasons. Levine and Shelton struck up a friendship and rivalry during the show's tenure, which has been credited as bolstering the show's success, reports People.

"Our friendship is and always will be one for the books," Levine wrote about Shelton on Instagram. "Whatever this whole surreal experience was, [I'm] just happy I got to experience it with you."

Levine ends his run on The Voice with three wins to his name, half of Shelton's six.

The Voice host Carson Daly told The Today Show that Levine's replacement would be former coach Gwen Stefani, who is dating Shelton. Marianne Dodson

Singer Christina Grimmie was fatally shot while signing autographs following a concert in Orlando, Florida, Friday evening. She was 22 years old.

After opening fire on the former contestant of The Voice, the gunman killed himself while he was tackled by Grimmie's brother. Grimmie, who initially rose to prominence thanks to a fan base of millions on YouTube, was taken to the hospital in critical condition while The Voice extended prayers for her and her family.

Grimmie's publicist confirmed Saturday morning she "has passed and went home to be with the Lord." Bonnie Kristian

Close your eyes and think back to that classic Notting Hill scene in which Julia Roberts asks Hugh Grant to love her. Now, speed ahead to the two-minute mark in the video below and have that touching moment ruined forever.

Roberts and Grant are just two of the actors who poke fun at themselves in a sketch for NBC's "Red Nose Day" — Daniel Craig and Liam Neeson also take turns confessing to their "real" voices, all of which, the sketch claims, have had to be dubbed over for audiences.

Give Roberts credit: She takes the brunt of the gag but seems to be having a ball in her documentary-style interviews. However, watching Craig insist he is a "manly man" is good for a laugh as well. Enjoy the stars revealing their less than velvety "real" voices in the video below. —Sarah Eberspacher
