‘The Voice’ Season 20: When Does it Start?

by Joe Rutland

Go ahead and mark March 1 down on your calendars because that’s when the 20th season of NBC’s popular series “The Voice” premieres.

Blake Shelton will return again as a coach. It makes him the only original coach to be on “The Voice” as the show celebrates its 10-year anniversary. Kelly Clarkson and John Legend return as coaches, while Nick Jonas returns after a one-year hiatus. During his time off, singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani, who is engaged to Shelton, sat in his place.

Now who will be these coaches’ battle advisors this season? Team Blake already has plucked Dan + Shay to be on his team. Meanwhile, Team Kelly will lean on singer-songwriter Luis Fonsi. Team Legend will have rhythm-and-blues/pop singer Brandy on board. Finally, Team Nick has tapped into “Glee” star Darren Criss to help him out.

Once again, Carson Daly will return in his hosting duties for “The Voice.” Catch the new season’s first episode at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central.

This show gives singers and musicians with hopes of making it to the big time a shot at seeing their dreams come true.

Season 17 ‘The Voice’ Winner Hoot Releases His Debut EP

Before a new winner is crowned, a previous season’s winner is getting raves about his work.

Jake Hoot, earlier this month, released his debut EP, “Love Out of Time.” Now Hoot was a part of Team Kelly when he won in Season 17.

Clarkson appears on the song “I Would’ve Loved You” in a duet with Hoot. The song combines Hoot’s strong, deep baritone with Clarkson’s high, bright falsetto. “I Would’ve Loved You” currently is the top song on Hoot’s Spotify page.

Clarkson took the time to help promote Jake Hoot’s album on Twitter. She also made sure that everyone knew who his coach was on the hit show. The post also featured a brief clip from the song “Love Out of Time,” the title track to the album.

Adam Levine Not Looking To Make Return To ‘The Voice’

Meanwhile, don’t expect Adam Levine to be running back for a coaching chair on “The Voice.”

During a recent Instagram Stories Q&A that he was hosting on the social media platform, a fan asked if he’d be returning to the NBC show.

“No thank you?” Levine said.

While his answer might be a bit guarded, Levine appears to have no bad blood between himself and the show.

Levine, 41, was an original coach in 2011, but he’s moved on to other projects and building a life. He is married to supermodel Behati Prinsloo and has two young daughters.
