“The Voice” will be returning to NBC for Season 12 on Monday in search of the next big star. While the competition may be fierce, it’s the judges that bring life and humor to the series and makes the show even more entertaining.

The NBC series is known for switching things up when it comes to the judges and this upcoming season is no different. This time around contestants at the audition will try to impress Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys.
