Blake Shelton and the coaches on The Voice won't return to television this September as planned. The show is being replaced on NBC by American Ninja Warrior for a few weeks — the singing reality series just isn't going to be ready on time.

Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Gwen Stefani are the other three coaches on Season 19 of The Voice, and while a firm premiere date was never announced by NBC, report is that American Ninja Warrior is taking its 8-10PM ET start time on Sept. 7th.


Colbie Calliat and ex-fiance/bandmate Justin Young have left country group Gone West, effectively ending the band after one single to country radio and one album. .

The move comes four months after the pair announced they were breaking up as a couple after 10 years of dating. However, they promised to remain friends, and the latest announcement doubles down on the idea of them making music together moving forward.
