It’s finally here! Season 22 of The Voice premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Viewers can tune in live on NBC or stream on Peacock. You can also watch it on fubo TV which has a free trial available.

The new season will see some big changes including the introduction of new coach Camila Cabello. Gwen Stefani also returns as coach. Both Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande retired after season 21. Blake Shelton and John Legend will also return as coaches.

There is also a lot of talk about a major format change in the knockout rounds, in which three instead of two participants will compete. Other rumors have it that each manager’s team has 14 members instead of the traditional 12.

According to MJS Big Blog, “With an oversized roster, how many auditions are reduced to a montage? NBC has scheduled an additional Blind Audition episode and TWO more Battle Round episodes compared to last season. However, with the knockouts featuring 3 competitors instead of two, there are only three knockouts compared to four last season.”

With all of these changes, many fans are wondering how the voting schedule will be affected. Typically, fans start voting as soon as the live shows air. At the moment it doesn’t look like that will change.

Based on the schedule released by NBC, voting will begin during the show on Monday, November 14, for which the first live show is scheduled. Here is the full schedule for the season according to BolaVIP:

The Block also returns for Season 22. According to NBC, “The coaching chairs with the block each have an extra set of buttons with the names of the other three coaches on them, which prevents a coach from adding a new artist to his or her team.” Coaches can only apply their block buttons to one artist for the entire first round of the competition.”

The website goes on to explain: “The blocked bus only discovers that it is blocked when it presses its button and although its chair is still rotating, ‘BLOCKED’ lights up in its lane. If the coach doesn’t push his button, the block is still available for another audition.”

There will also be a whole host of new advisors this season. The combat advisories for this year’s trainers, as announced in an NBC press release obtained by Heavy, are as follows:

Season 22 Battle Advisors include:

“Team Legend: Critically acclaimed, two-time Grammy Award-winning R&B singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan

Camilla team: Grammy Award-nominated singer, songwriter and producer Charlie Puth

Team Blakes: Jimmie Allen, Grammy-nominated, chart-topping country star

Team Gwen: Grammy Award-winning rapper, singer-songwriter Sean Paul, widely recognized as one of Jamaica’s most prolific artists.”
