Singer Adam Levine issued a statement on Wednesday explaining his “I hate this country” comment on “The Voice.” The Maroon 5 frontman was overheard muttering the statement after two members of his team, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, were voted off.

The reality TV coach explained, “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of ‘The Voice,’ I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed.”

He continued, “Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me, and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.“

Adam told "Extra's" Renee Bargh, "I’m pretty shocked…they shouldn’t have gone home. There are other people that should have gone home." 

Levine is now down to just one contestant, country singer Amber Carrington.
