Kelly Clarkson, former winner of the American Idol, revealed why she decided to pull out as a coach on reality show The Voice. The 41-year-old television personality exited her role as a mentor to embark on a new journey, which ultimately required her to move out.

The award-winning singer has also disclosed other reasons which led her to relocate even her daytime show, 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' from Los Angeles to New York City. The show, which is currently running successfully in its fifth season, is a daytime variety talk show hosted by the prominent singer. In a conversation with USA Today, Clarkson also opened up about her troubled marital breakup with her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly Clarkson's Timeline with The Voice

Renowned TV personality, and singer-songwriter joined NBC’s The Voice as a coach with Season 14 of the talent show. She continued her role till Season 21, and then took a break in the next season. However, she returned to the show with Season 23, before marking her final departure. Speaking about her exit (via People), Clarkson said, "I've learned a lot about what I'm capable of handling, and also what you should not handle. That was me saying 'bye' to 'The Voice' and having this big move. I love that family, but I was like, 'I'm struggling. I can't smile anymore. I don't feel like smiling."

NBC in May announced the names of the four new coaches who will be sitting in the red chair for Season 24. Amongst the coaches are Reba McEntire, John Legend, Gwen Stefani, and Niall Horan.

Kelly Clarkson talks about a new beginning

The singer spoke her heart out about the dilemma she faced while taking the tough decision to move out. Describing the move as a part of fresh start, she said, “I knew I needed a fresh start and couldn’t be in L.A. I really wanted to be in Montana, but you can’t really do a show from there quite yet. So I was like, ‘The only other option would probably be New York.'”
