The wait is over – the premiere date for Season 24 of the singing competition show, The Voice, has finally been revealed. 

According to the official Twitter account of The Voice, viewers will see coaches Reba McEntire, John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Niall Horan return to their coaching chairs on September 25. 

The post read, “Calling all fans to the stage! 📣 #TheVoice returns with @reba, @johnlegend ,  @gwenstefani, and @nialloffical Sept 25th 8/7c on @nbc and streaming on @peacock.”

Alongside the caption, each of the coaches appeared in a photo with host Carson Daly as they showcased their wide smiles and excitement to begin the new season together. This will mark the show’s first run without country superstar, Blake Shelton, who appeared as a coach and mentor for 23 Seasons on The Voice before announcing his decision to step down.

Daly recently took to Instagram to share how things are going without the presence of the “No Body” singer on set. He captured a selfie that showcased his sorrowful face as he gets prepped and ready to film without Shelton by his side for the first time. 

“My first day ever shooting @nbcthevoice without @blakeshelton. We had a ritual of getting hair & makeup together for 23 seasons. I think I’m handling it well. Everything’s fine,” he wrote. 

Reba McEntire Steps In

McEntire was tapped to serve as Blake Shelton’s replacement following her most recent appearance on the show as a Mega Mentor. Additionally, it has been revealed that the “I’m A Survivor” singer will serve as a coach for back-to-back seasons beginning in the fall. 

Then, McEntire will return to her red chair in 2024. Joining her on the coaching panel for Season 25 will be John Legend, Chance the Rapper, and the newest addition, Dan + Shay. 

“The Double Chair”

The country music duo will be stepping into “The Double Chair,” an exciting new element that has previously been incorporated on versions of the singing competition show that are broadcasted from other countries. However, this will be a first for the U.S. version of The Voice

Dan + Shay took to social media to answer one burning question about what their involvement with the singing competition show will look like. 

The video shared via Instagram on Friday, June 30, opened with Dan Smyers boasting that they have “never been more excited for anything in our entire lives” than to announce that they have been tapped as the first duo to step into “The Double Chair.”

Standing next to Smyers was his bandmate, Shay Mooney, who added that he is “absolutely fired up.” 

Mooney then went on to address the question that appeared in the corner of the video, which read, “Is dan & shay sharing a chair??”

“Listen, people have been asking, ‘Is it two chairs? Is it one?’” Mooney said before clarifying, “It’s two chairs, but one button.”

“The double chair!” Smyers chimed in. 

This has been a common question among fans and regular viewers of the show who are used to seeing only chair and one button for each coach. At the start of every season, the celebrity coaches sit facing away from the hopeful artists that step on stage and audition to be part of the show. This allows their performance to be judged solely on their vocal abilities. The coaches that are interested will then hit their individual button causing their chair to turn around and reveal the auditioner before them. 

With the addition of The Double Chair, this process will be slightly altered because while Dan + Shay will each have their own chair, they will share a button between them.

Dan + Shay’s New Album

This upcoming adventure together marks yet another step in the next chapter of Dan + Shay’s musical journey. The pair recently revealed plans for a forthcoming fifth studio album titled BIGGER HOUSES, which will be available everywhere on September 15.

Taking to social media to announce the new collection, they wrote, “We poured every bit of our hearts into this album and truly cannot wait for y’all to hear it. New era starts now! 🏠”

Fans got the first taste of the duo’s full-length project through two new songs, “Heartbreak On The Map” and the title track, “Bigger Houses,” as well as their latest single, “Save Me The Trouble.”

All three of the new releases have been paired with an accompanying music video that brings the songs to life in their own respective ways.
