Ariana Grande shares hilarious text from Blake Shelton about 'The Voice' replacement rumors

Blake Shelton has a joke for everything.

OK Magazine shared this Radar Online rumor that producers at The Voice are "quietly looking to replace Blake with someone younger and more current" after Ariana Grande's debut as a coach this week.

Grande posted a new batch of photos to Instagram late Friday afternoon, including a screenshot of a text from Shelton. The 45-year-old country music star had sent the article to Grande, followed by another text: "Thanks a lot Ari... Thanks a f—n' lot.."

The Voice premiered its 21st season Monday (Sept. 20) with Grande sitting in the chair previously occupied by Nick Jonas. Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend are the other coaches, as they have been since Season 16.

Shelton is the last remaining original coach from The Voice's 2011 premiere. Artists from his team have been crowned the winner of the NBC singing competition show eight times, including last season's Cam Anthony.
