Asked by DeGeneres if he'll be returning for the next cycle of the series, the Maroon 5 frontman turned evasive with a series of non-answers, finally offering, “I might be there, but who knows” after DeGeneres suggested that he might be currently negotiating.
“I… Ya let me find out,” Levine said, after DeGeneres asked him if he'll be back on the show. ” I gotta find out. I usually ask the people what I'm supposed to say.”
Levine, who in addition to his music career has recently branched out into acting, added, “I'm checking my schedule.”
Levine has been with the show since it launched in 2011.
The series will undergo a number of changes next season, with Pharrell Williams replacing a departing CeeLo Green. (It might be worth noting that Green broke the news of his departure on DeGeneres’ show.) No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani will also be coming aboard, filling in for Christina Aquilera, who's taking a hiatus.
