 The Voice Season 9

The ninth season of the American reality talent show The Voice will premiere on Monday, September 21, 2015 on NBC at 8:00 PM.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani will return as coaches for the season.

To open this week’s show, each of the coaches will be singing each other’s hits. Now that should be fun! I want to hear Adam sing Pharrell’s “Happy” song – it’s a perfect fit. Their voices are quite similar. 

So, once again, we will see some stellar vocalists come and go; however, this show – as with all of these reality shows – are platforms for launching careers that are flying below the radar. 

Will you be tuning in?  Comment away when you can.

  1. I loved several of the contestants on the first episode of The Voice.

Love this part of this show!
