"The Voice" aired a remote-live show with no audience. Their first remote show featured red chairs that were empty as no one was in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The novel coronavirus has caused a fair share of scare across the globe; however, people have been advised to stay indoors, and observe strict hygiene.

Social distancing is also another preventive measure that can curb the continuous spread of the virus. Events have been replanned, and some canceled to prohibit the large gathering of people, which could lead to an outrageous spread.

Talent shows such as "America's Got Talent" and "The Voice," which usually deals with a present audience, panelists, and singers, have taken a different turn following the ongoing health crisis. The show's host, Carson Daly said during the recently concluded remote show:

"As you know, the entire world changed dramatically since we taped the knockouts. But just because we are all separated doesn't mean we can't come together...and hear some great music."


The two hours episode saw various participants singing from their various residences. The show provided an avenue for the seventeen remaining competitors to sing like they were on stage.

Though there was no light ring present, the participants made use of the video kits and their voices to connect with their numerous audience and fans, which they've accrued throughout the competition.

The next show will have nine contestants with the motive of proving their worth to the judges and viewers.


"American Idol" was the first talent show to subscribe to the home base setting following lockdown, and the production team did an impressive job.

The different panelists, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Nick Jonas, on the "The Voice" competition connected online as they seem to be quarantining in different locations across the country.


Before the show, Blake, who had the help of his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani while getting ready for the remote show said:

"I just had the most expensive hair and makeup artist on the planet Earth, Gwen Stefani fix my makeup and hair for me. I hope I look appropriate for this thing."

The country artist concluded by stating that he's excited to be able to work from home. This comes after he told his colleagues on the show how setting up would be an easy game. In the end, he gave up after gulping down a drink during the setup process.

John Legend expressed that he couldn't wait to share date night at a restaurant with his model wife, Chrissy Teigen.

Kelly Clarkson went on about her kids and how comfortable she feels working from her Montana ranch. The next show will have nine contestants with the motive of proving their worth to the judges and viewers.
