It’s official: “The Voice” is returning next month.
The show confirmed that “Voice” coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend will all be returning, with Nick Jonas — who first appeared as a coach for the show’s 18th season — filling in for Gwen Stefani.
“To everyone in season 20: make the most of every moment and have SO much fun!” he wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be cheering you on.”

What to expect
- On Monday, “The Voice” also announced on Twitter that artists Brandy, Dan and Shay, Luis Fonsi and Darren Criss would be the celebrity mentors for the show’s 20th season.
- “The Voice” first announced in November that Jonas would be taking Stefani’s place for the 20th season, the Deseret News reported. Stefani, who has been an on-and-off coach on the show for five seasons, has never stayed for two seasons in a row.
- “I’m back and ready to win this thing,” Jonas posted on Twitter at the time. (The other “Voice” coaches have victories to their names; Season 20 could potentially be Jonas’ first win).
- Based on previous seasons, “The Voice” will likely have a two-hour premiere block that airs at 7 p.m. MT on March 1.
- The new season comes after good ratings for Season 19, which averaged 7.4 million viewers, according to TV Line.
