The world of music was shaken by the death of legendary artist Prince on Thursday, and the superstar coaches of The Voice shared their thoughts and memories of the late icon.

"He was just fearless and did things his way," the Maroon 5 frontman shared. "I always wanted to do things my way, and [Prince was one of the] people who inspire me to do that."

"I'm still shocked and really sad that he's not around anymore. I can't really accept it right now," Levine, 37, added. "I'm going to miss that guy. Not only him, but [also] what he did for all of us."

Pharrell Williams also paid his respects, explaining that Prince's influence on his music is "hard to put into words." According to the 43-year-old "Freedom" singer, he'd often hope the songs he made would "be something that [Prince] would nod his head at."

"There are many kings, queens and princesses, but there will never be another Prince," Williams said.

Blake Shelton also opened up about Prince's untimely death at 57, explaining that the singer-songwriter's impact wasn't just on music, but on the entire world.

"That's what hurts the most," the 39-year-old country crooner said. "I feel like we lost, almost like a super hero today."

For Voice coach and pop star Christina Aguilera, the best thing about Prince's music is that it's "timeless."

"You listen to these songs throughout the decades and it's just like, no matter what decade you're living in, and even today, it could be a hit on the radio!" the 35-year-old told ET. "[He was] so authentic, and so genuine. Just a monster talent."

However, the "Lady Marmalade" singer honored Prince's memory with some positivity, sharing, "It's not raining today, the sun is shining so his light is still shining on us."

Aguilera, who wore a shirt featuring the late music legend David Bowie, who died in January, admitted, "It's been a sad year for music."
