 The Voice Season 9

I don’t know about all of you but I am slightly obsessed with the photos of the Season 9 judges for The Voice. They are beyond cool and perfectly capture the star chemistry of this particular grouping of judges: Pharrell WilliamsAdam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. 

Plus, Adam still has his hair!  That bald look was pretty scary. Adam – stop. Just stop with the haircuts and the body tattoos. Pretty please?  

And, with that being said, on with the show!

This week showcases the Top 48 singers in the KnockOut Rounds. For the knockouts, Rihanna is assigned as a mentor for contestants in all four teams. Just like season eight, the coaches can steal one losing artist. The top 20 contestants will then move on to the “Live Shows.”

There is a very deep and delish lineup of talent – almost too much. It saddens me to see any of these fine singers experience early elimination but that’s the name of the game with on these shows. 

Tune in to NBC on Monday, October 26th  at 8:00 PM and Tuesday, October 27th at 9:00 PM and pick your favourites. And don’t forget to stop by the comments section below this article and share your thoughts.
