'The Voice': Could Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's constant PDA on the show be the reason she was replaced by Nick Jonas?

Nick Jonas recently confirmed that he would be replacing Gwen Stefani in Season 18 of 'The Voice' which is set to air in Fall 2020. Sharing a picture where he is seen beaming Jonas noted "Me thinking about joining @kellyclarkson, @johnlegend, and @blakeshelton on season 18 of @NBCTheVoice. So excited to finally get to share this with you all." With the tweet, Jonas confirmed that viewers will not be seeing Stefani on the show anymore. However, that has left fans wondering why the sudden change of judges.

Stefani did not receive the warm welcome one would have expected her to have when she joined season 17 of 'The Voice'. Stefani joined as the new coach to replace Adam Levine after the singer announced that he had decided to end his decade long journey in the show as a coach.

People were upset about his leaving but most of all, many seemed disappointed that Stefani was chosen as the replacement. One of the many reasons for this happened to be her relationship with Blake Shelton. Shelton and Stefani have been dating for a long time and their PDA has been the talk of the town.

The show happened to be another place where the couple did not fail to express their love for each other and while some might have loved it, many fans were left cringing. Fans took to Twitter to slam the couple and noted that the show should focus on the contestants and not on the relationship between Stefani and Shelton.

"The interaction between Blake & Gwen is already getting on my last nerve. I really like Blake but this is starting to make me dislike him. Gwen turns when Blake does because she likes “fighting” with him, Blake turns when she does just to irritate her, is this fair to the contest," noted one fan.

Other fans echoed similar thoughts as another user commented, "The Voice" and the speaker says Gwen Stefani is back on with her man Blake Shelton it just makes me want to come through the radio and beat the home wrecker and her man's cheating a$$" while another chimed in stating, " I’m excited for #TheVoice but I don’t want it all to be about @gwenstefani and @blakeshelton even though I love them. A great couple but make it about the show and contestants."

However, it seems like Stefani's absence from the show comes after it was revealed that the singer plans to return to Las Vegas, Nevada to continue her remaining dates of 'Just a Girl' tour. Unfortunately, the dates clash with 'The Voice's' Fall cycle which led Stefani to make the big decision of letting go of her place as the coach on the show.
