The fact that “The Voice” has been on the air for ten years is incredible. Since the approach was unique compared to other reality singing competitions at the time, the singing competition made its NBC debut in 2011 to rousing praise. On “The Voice,” contestants were chosen via a blind audition in which the coaches could only hear their voices. The most compelling voices were then chosen by the coaches to continue in the competition.
Of course, one of the main draws of the program has also been the coaches. The show’s original coaches were Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and CeeLo Green, however as of Season 21, Insider reports that there have been 15 full-time coaches. The most recent panel featured Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Shelton, the only coach to have participated in every season. According to Good Housekeeping, Grande’s inclusion in particular was well-received on social media, with the singer’s followers expressing their support for her new position.
According to TV Series Finale, Season 21’s ratings have remained consistent, hence it seems probable that NBC will renew the program. Here is what to anticipate from Season 22 of “The Voice.”
When will The Voice Season 22 return?
According to Deadline, since its 2011 debut, “The Voice” has established itself as a mainstay on NBC and has surpassed rival singing competition programs, including “American Idol.” However, TV Series Finale reports a decline in ratings in recent years. Although dips are usual for a program that has been on the air for so long, NBC doesn’t seem very concerned about it. Although the program will no longer be airing two seasons annually, NBC executive Frances Berwick told Deadline in May that viewers may still exhale with relief. “The Voice” is still among the most watched television programs, and we intend to maintain it that way, she declared. We believe that “The Voice” will be on NBC for a very long time to come, and that the best approach to safeguard the brand this year is to create one incredible cycle.
The next season of “The Voice” won’t begin airing until the fall of 2022 because there will only be one cycle of the show this year. Monsters and Critics anticipates that brand-new episodes will air on September 19, although both those dates and the renewal need to be verified. But because NBC keeps coming up with better and better surprises for the program, “The Voice” appears to have a secure place on the schedule of the network.
Who will be on The Voice Season 22?
In recent years, “The Voice” has broadened its viewership by appointing coaches who resonate with many racial and ethnic groups. In Season 21, Ariana Grande joined the cast and is recognized with introducing a younger audience to the program. In a December interview with Entertainment Tonight, co-star and former musical partner John Legend spoke on Grande’s effect, stating the pop diva “may have drawn some fantastic talent to the show, and it’s very evenly dispersed throughout the teams.” Legend applauded Ariana Grande’s debut and stated it was a pleasure working with her, while Kelly Clarkson noted on “The Tonight Show” that Ariana Grande’s sense of humor is what makes her so likeable. She’s hilarious, Clarkson said. Like, really clever
Fans are hopeful Ariana Grande can continue for another season in light of these compliments, if only to further irritate Blake Shelton. According to E, Grande is receptive to the notion. “Daily Pop” of News that she would want to come back. I’m eager to collaborate with you on whatever comes next, Grande stated. “I am running back as quickly as possible where it happens to be right and where we feel fit. If it’s this bunch [of coaches], I’ll be really delighted.”
While Grande has made her sentiments known, we will have to wait to learn whether NBC will accept her requests.
Will Blake Shelton return to The Voice in Season 22?
The 22nd season of “The Voice” may see significant changes. NBC may be considering to replace longstanding coach Blake Shelton after witnessing how well-liked Ariana Grande has been among viewers and contestants, according to Radar Online. Before Ariana Grande agreed to participate, current top ten musicians including Justin Bieber, Lil Nas X, Billie Elish (sic), Olivia Rodrigo, and The Weeknd all expressed reluctance about appearing on a reality competition show, a source told the publication. The insider added that the “flood gates” had now been “opened” by a major pop singer, which might be fatal for Shelton. The insider stated, “Sure, he is a star and people love him, but he doesn’t exactly burn up the charts anymore.
If the rumor is accurate, Shelton could be compelled to leave the show and pursue new possibilities, much as his rival Adam Levine did when he quit in Season 16. NBC might not have to push Shelton out in order to replace him with “someone younger and more contemporary,” according to “The Voice” producers.
On “Today with Hoda & Jenna” in March, Shelton told Hoda Kotb that he hoped to marry Gwen Stefani and start a family soon. We’ve both very much pushed our professions, traveling, and now the television stuff to the absolute extent, he remarked. “It’s been lucky to achieve a lot, but perhaps, at some time, we have the opportunity to enjoy some life.”
