Not Everyone Is Excited About John Legend Replacing J-Hud on 'The Voice'

By Anna Quintana

During last night's finale of The Voice,  it was announced (again) that John Legend would be getting his very own spinning red chair on the reality singing competition. 

As expected, fans were excited about the new addition for the upcoming Season 16, which premieres in the spring. "@johnlegend is gonna be a judge on The Voice... @blakeshelton I’m sorry but you better bring your A game cause I’m not sure who will be my fave judge now!!" Another added, "Carson said John Legend is coaching next year, will he replace Adam? I'm just asking..." 

But wait, who is John replacing on The Voice

John's casting is bittersweet because it means that a judge will be leaving the show — and that judge is Jennifer Hudson. 

"I’m thrilled to join the coaches of The Voice," John said in a statement. "I’ve been a guest and mentor on the show multiple times and I’m so excited to discover talented singers and help them make the most of their gift."
