'The Voice' Returns for Its First Socially Distanced Season - Watch the Preview!

The Voice is back!

Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend are all returning as judges for the upcoming Season 19 of the long-running NBC singing competition, and People shared a first look at the all-new socially distanced season on Thursday (September 10), which is coming amid the pandemic.

Among the changes: the judges will now sit eight feet apart in their chairs, and will find innovative ways to stay connected to their contestants. In one scene, Gwen attempts to launch a tee during the blind auditions with a T-shirt cannon.

“I got a present for you but because we’re social distancing, I’m going to launch it at you,” she says.

The Season 18 finale of The Voice aired remotely from the coaches and contestants’ homes amid the pandemic, while Carson Daly hosted from a soundstage.

Just recently, Gwen revealed that a former judge contributed to her getting the job on the show.
