'The Voice' Season 20 Returns Very Soon — All Details about the Upcoming Season
One of America’s favorite singing competition series “The Voice” will be marking its 10th anniversary on the air when it returns for its 20th season in March, and fans can’t wait to know every detail about it.
Following 19 outstanding seasons NBC singing competition show “The Voice” continues to prove that there is so much talent to be discovered in the US, and the network is about to release the 20th season of the hit series.
The upcoming season will be the second to be recorded under the safety measures to prevent the spreading of COVID-19, including virtual audiences and no companions for the contestants in the set.
While the revamped format of the series for our pandemic times will remain the same as season 19, there are still little changes that will keep things fresh for the audiences, without the show losing its familiar ambiance.
Although the names of the contestants for season 20 will only be revealed when the Blind Auditions are aired, the producers of the singing competition are reportedly already watching auditions.
Country singer Blake Shelton continues as the only coach to have been working on every season of the show since the beginning, and with seven wins, he is so far the most successful coach.
Pop singer Kelly Clarkson, who joined the coaching panel on season 14, and R&B singer John Legend, who joined on season 16, are also confirmed to be returning for the upcoming season.
CHANGES IN THE COACH PANEL
Former No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani, who stepped in to replace Nick Jonas as a coach in season 19 (she won the season), is not returning for the upcoming season, leaving Jonas to get his seat in the coaching panel back.
Jonas, who only joined the show as a coach in season 18, when he made it to the finals, is said to be eager to return to challenge Shelton, and he is determined to make the best out of his comeback.
"Little do these coaches know I've grown stronger by the day. The newbie has now become the master. A warrior never sleeps,” Jonas said in a video ahead of the premiere of the newest season of “The Voice.”
Later in the season, for the Battle Rounds, advisors like Brandy (Team Ocean), Dan + Shay (Team Blake), Luis Fonsi (Team Kelly), and Darren Criss (Team Nick), are going to be making appearances.
47-year-old veteran media personality, DJ, VJ, and host Carson Daly has been hosting “The Voice” since the start of the series in 2011, and his fans don’t need to worry because Daly is returning for his 20th season in front of the show.
“It’s hard to be both really popular and really cool. I think The Voice’s legacy is that it was able to achieve both,” Daly recently told TV Insider, proving that he is himself a big fan of the series.
WHEN AND WHERE TO WATCH
The 20th season of the voice will premiere on Monday, March 1, 2021, at 8 p.m. Easter Time – 7 p.m. Central Time, on NBC. Episodes will be aired on Mondays and Tuesdays, and will also be available on the streaming service Peacock.
While every season of the series has lasted about 10 weeks, the exact number of episodes changes from season to season. It is not clear how long season 20 is going to be, but based on the last two, it will probably consist of about 19.
