Levine made the comment while he anxiously waited for the reveal of which of his team members would be sent home, courtesy of America's votes.

The Grammy Award winning artist released a statement in which he clarified that he does not hate the country, he was simply upset during the results of the show.

According to Us Weekly, the singer said, "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. 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."

While on the red carpet, following the show's results, the star told the magazine about his disappointment of America's choice to send his artist packing.

"I'm sad . . . and a little pissed off, to be honest," he said.

 "I was shocked, actually. I think they all gave us really strong performances . . . I'm really passionate about these singers and their talent and believe that maybe their talent was overshadowed by some other things."
