Adam Levine had been a strong part of The Voice, being of the first judges to join the show. It is of course no secret that his long time on the show has contributed to him getting a large salary.
When The Voice initially started, their strategy was to form a roster of judges who are both young and incredibly successful, such as Adam Levine from Maroon 5, Christina Aguilera, the incredible pop talent & Blake Shelton, who is a widely recognized country musician. The show also included the veteran musician CeeLo Green, known for having an incredible vocal range.
Levine was paid handsomely for his work in The Voice, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter. Adam’s paycheck for one season of the show was $14 million. Since the show aired twice a year, his annual revenue coming from the show alone turned out to be $28 million. In his 16 seasons long run, he walked away with a whopping $244 million. With his quarter of a billion dollars, Adam is one of the most handsomely paid reality TV singing shows of all time.
While Adam exited the show after spending 16 seasons working on it, he aroused quite some shock and surprise when he became known for being quite unapproving of the show. However, he is still considered an important part of the show, judging by his years long legacy and hard work on the show.[Via]
