NBC’s reality singing competition show The Voice will air the fifth episode of Season 18 tonight, March 9. The two-hour episode will begin at 8 p.m. ET/PT and feature more Blind Auditions for the season. This is the last episode of Blind Auditions for the season.
Starting next week, Monday, March 23, The Voice airs its first episode of the “Battle Rounds,” where the coaches will choose two of their own contestants to go up against one another. During this round, the show’s mentors will begin to talk with the contestants and coaches.
Coaches John Legend, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and Nick Jonas will then 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?
Both singing competition shows that are on air right now are set to start live shows in just a few weeks to a little over a month. American Idol’s Hollywood Week begins tonight, but live shows wouldn’t begin until sometime in April. Production has been reportedly placed in flux until then, with the company deciding to make a decision closer to that date.
The Voice has more time to make a decision when it comes to deciding whether to postpone or change up the live shows. USA Today reports that the live shows aren’t scheduled to begin until early May.
It’s likely that these live shows may still have to be filmed without an audience since 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 apart.
