The "Honeybee" singer said he and his fellow judges, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green, are being forced to choose between touring and making music, and staying on the show as "The Voice" execs have decided to go forward with back to back seasons.

"It's their decision [for us to leave], in that they're the ones choosing to do back to back seasons," he explained. "They really leave us no other option. As far as Christina and Adam and Cee Lo and I -- if we want to tour, there's not a chance of that doing back to back seasons. That's not acceptable to me."
