"The Voice" fans are in for a treat as their favorite show goes alive during the coronavirus pandemic. The four hosts starred in the announcement video, which ended on a hilarious note.
"The Voice" is keeping up with its competition in times of crisis by going live and giving viewers a more intimate experience than ever before, thanks to COVID-19.
On Thursday, the show's Twitter account unveiled the new plan to do a remote live show from Monday, May 4. The clip, which is only 15 seconds long, is found below.
FIRST-EVER THE VOICE REMOTE SHOWS
Jonas shows at he steps outside to find camera and audio equipment as well as cords and power strips. When Shelton notices his container is locked, he busts out a chainsaw in a hilarious finale.
HOW IT'S GOING TO WORK
According to Today, the contestants also received production kits for them to record at their homes. Although the performances for Monday will be pre-recorded, the coaches will do live judging.
Viewers will then cast their votes, and, on Tuesday, both the judges and the contestants will react live to the results and see who makes it into the Top 9.
FROM THEIR HOMES TO OURS
Clarkson is currently in her Montana home, Shelton in Oklahoma and Legend and Jonas are both in Los Angeles. Host Carson Daly will also be shooting from inside a Los Angeles soundstage.
"Reinventing the live shows has allowed us to create innovative ways to bring 'The Voice' to life in a fresh and intimate way."
AMERICAN IDOL DOING LIVE SHOWS
"The Voice" joins "American Idol," which started doing live shows in late April. Their contestants performed in real-time on remote video as judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan judged from home.
"American Idol" didn't miss a beat as it had enough pre-taped episodes to air up until the live shows came to life. Host Seacrest also joined in to deliver the unique experience to fans.
Perry, Richie, and Seacrest are situated in California while Bryan is in Nashville. Episodes of "American Idol" airs on Sundays as usual while "The Voice" will broadcast Mondays and Tuesdays.
