‘The Voice’ Season 21 with Ariana Grande Sets Fall Premiere Date
The Voice is returning for Season 21 this fall with new coach Ariana Grande, and the show just set a premiere date. We can’t wait to reunite with our favorite stars and meet the new contestants.
In addition to Grande, past coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton will be returning to their spinning red chairs to listen to Blind Auditions and mentor their teams.
When Does ‘The Voice’ Premiere?
On Thursday, the show’s Instagram account announced that Season 21 of The Voice will premiere on NBC September 20. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays this fall, so we’ll have plenty of talent to enjoy.
We’re glad to see that the show is back to a September premiere date. Last year, the fall premiere was delayed until October due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But just because the season is starting earlier, it doesn’t mean the show isn’t taking precautions.
Blind Auditions began filming last month, with a live studio audience. Those wishing to attend had to be fully vaccinated, with a negative Covid test result no more than two days before taping. Attendees were also restricted to certain areas and required to wear masks unless told otherwise.
Grande Joins the Coaching Panel for Season 21
Grande will be replacing last season’s coach Nick Jonas on the panel for Season 21. When the news was announced, the singer wrote on Instagram that she was “beyond thrilled, honored, excited” to be joining the show.
Shelton shared his own thoughts about Grande joining the show, saying he’s “excited” since he’s a fan of hers, but adding, “We’re still going to beat the crap out of her, you know, on the show. It’s our job — they pay us to win … They don’t pay me to lose.”
Audience members have already revealed what Grande is like on set, saying she was “so fun and sweet.” They shared, “She was interacting with the fans so much and was having the cutest moments on and off camera with the coaches. Ariana and Kelly Clarkson were taking selfies. It was so cute.”
Grande is rumored to be the highest-paid coach in The Voice history, potentially making as much as $25 million for the season. We can’t wait to see what the dynamic is like between her and the other coaches when the season premieres September 20.
