Exciting news for fans of the hit reality singing competition, The Voice, as the show’s official social media accounts recently teased a major change for the 2024 season—a new format called “The Double Chair.” In a short video clip, two chairs were shown adjoined side by side, with the words “WE WANT YOU” displayed across the bottom. This intriguing development has sparked speculation and curiosity among fans about what this double chair could mean for the show.

The Voice Introduces The Double Chair

With the promise of a “double” experience in 2024, The Voice continues to innovate and captivate audiences worldwide. As fans eagerly await the unveiling of the epic lineup, each has their own take on what this new format brings. 

One possibility is that The Voice will introduce a new twist by pairing up four coaches and forming two teams of contestants, instead of the usual four teams. This would create a dynamic and competitive atmosphere, as the coaches collaborate and strategize together.

However, hiring eight coaches, especially if they are music superstars, could be quite expensive for the show. To address this, it’s possible that The Voice will assign each of the four coaches a mentor and former fan-favorite contestants could step into this role.

Considering the recent cutbacks in the 2023 Spring cycle, with fewer competition episodes and live shows, it’s clear that NBC is exploring ways to optimize the show’s format within a shorter timeframe and budget.

This approach may resemble America’s Got Talent‘s winter spinoff, which has successfully experimented with various formats in recent seasons. While it’s unlikely that the double chair format will involve expanding the coaches’ panel, the exact details remain a mystery.

The Upcoming Season Of The Voice Will Feature Many Changes

Fans are left speculating and eagerly anticipating what “The Double Chair” will bring to The Voice. Will it enhance the competition and mentorship aspects? Will it introduce new twists and challenges for the contestants? The possibilities are endless, and only time will tell what surprises await in the 2024 season.

In the meantime, viewers can look forward to the upcoming 24th season of The Voice, set to air this fall. This season will feature an exciting lineup of coaches, including John Legend, Niall Horan, Gwen Stefani, and Reba McEntire. If you didn’t know, McEntire will be taking over Blake Shelton’s seat.
This marks the first season of The Voice without Shelton, as he bids farewell to the show after many years. Another notable absence is Kelly Clarkson, who will sit out the Fall cycle due to her various commitments. The commitments include a new album release, a Las Vegas residency, and her talk show’s relocation to New York City.
