Kelly Clarkson Returns to Win in New ‘The Voice’ Season 23 Promo
The Voice has released a new promo for Season 23, this time focused on Kelly Clarkson’s return to the show as a coach. Clarkson took Season 22 off, but she’s back and determined to secure her fifth win on the show.

In the new video, Clarkson admits that “absence makes the heart grow fonder,” and she’s happy to be back on the show. The promo features clips of Clarkson making her case for why various artists should join her team this season.
Clarkson points out that she won the last time she was a coach on the show in Season 21, with the sibling trio Girl Named Tom. She’s back to win again, saying, “I know it’s the cowboy’s last season, but I’m not going easy on you.”
She’s of course referring to longtime coach Blake Shelton, who announced last year that Season 23 of the show would be his last. He and Clarkson have a playful rivalry, and the promo makes it clear that things haven’t changed.
“It’s exciting to have Kelly back,” Shelton says in the clip, “because when she’s gone, I really don’t have anybody to truly fight with. And when she’s here, the fight is on.”

What Do the New Coaches Think of Clarkson?
The new promo also features some comments from the show’s two new coaches, Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper. They both have nice things to say about the returning coach, and it sounds like they’re ready for some tough competition.
“I think she’s probably the strongest vocal performer out of all the coaches,” Chance the Rapper shares in the clip. “And she can make her case every time she pitches. Like, it just feels like she’s gonna win. So I’m looking out for Kelly.”
Horan, meanwhile, points out that Clarkson has “won the show half the times she’s been here, and there’s a reason for it.” He adds that different types of artists gravitate to her team, calling her “tough to beat.”
The Voice returns for Season 23 on Monday, March 6, at 8/7c on NBC.
