NBC’s reality singing competition show The Voice will air the sixth episode of Season 18 next week on Monday, March 23. There is no new episode tonight, March 17, 2020.
Next week’s two-hour episode will begin at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and it is the first episode of the Battle Round for the 2020 season. During those rounds, the coaches will choose two of their own contestants to go up against one another. The show’s mentors will begin to talk with the contestants and coaches.
Coaches John Legend, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and Nick Jonas will be joined by mentors Joe and Kevin Jonas (on Nick’s Team), Bebe Rexha (for Team Blake), Ella Mai (Team Legend), and Dua Lipa (Team Kelly).
Will ‘The Voice’ Production Be Delayed Due to Coronavirus?
There are currently two singing competition shows on the air: ABC’s American Idol and NBC’s The Voice. They’re both set to begin live shows in just a few weeks to a little over a month, but production has reportedly been placed in flux until then, with the company deciding to make a decision closer to the air dates. Idol’s live shows are set to begin sometime in April when they’re done airing their pre-taped Hollywood Week and Showcase round episodes.
This season of The Voice is following a bit behind Idol’s schedule for the year, so they have more time to make a decision when it comes to whether or not to postpone or change up the live shows. USA Today reports that their live shows aren’t scheduled to begin until early May.
While early May is a way off, it’s still likely these may have to be filmed without a live audience since just last week California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that gatherings of more than 250 people should be canceled and smaller gatherings should require people to stand 6 feet or further apart.
What’s the Final Makeup of the Teams?
