“Everyone was excited when Jennifer Lopez was at the show. There have been a lot of big stars performing on The Voice, but there was something different about Jennifer's visit," an insider spilled to Radar following J.Lo's appearance on the hit singing competition show.
"All the top execs and producers were on-set that day and after she finished filming there was a lot of closed-door meeting trying to convince her to join the show full-time.”
While The Voice was renewed by NBC, the show has been reduced from twice a year to just once due to the falling ratings. Though producers only brought Grande onto the show this season, with her becoming the highest paid coach ever on The Voice, an insider claimed she didn't make a big enough splash.
“At the end of the day Ariana Grande didn’t bring in the ratings," the source blatantly said. "She has more social media followers than all the other stars combined, yet her fans didn’t tune in."
It seems the "7 rings" songstress' fate was sealed on the show when she didn't even manage to get one of her acts to the finale. “It is safe to say that Ariana won’t be back,” the source said to Radar.

While Green only lasted a short time on the beloved show, Levine stayed on for 16 seasons before eventually parting ways with his long-time red coaching chair.
