The coronavirus has forced millions around the world to social distance from one another, but it won’t stop “The Voice” Season 18 from moving forward. While considering protective measures, judges Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Nick Jonas will be coming back to the series.

However, when “The Voice” returns to television, things will be a bit different on the show. The NBC singing competition plans to take special precautions to protect the coaches and contestants.

On Wednesday, the network announced that the show will go on and return to television next week. Host Carson Daly will be on hand to transition through different segments via a soundstage minus an audience.

Meanwhile, the judges will pop in and out of the show to share advice with the contestants and give them feedback following performances. However, they will be doing this from the safety of their homes.

While Shelton will be live from his home in Oklahoma, Clarkson will be at her ranch in Montana, and Legend and Jonas will be at their respective home in Los Angeles.

Executive producer and showrunner Audrey Morrissey announced the show’s new structure in a press release. “Reinventing the live shows has allowed us to create innovative ways to bring ‘The Voice’ to life in a fresh and intimate way,” she said.

“It has been an incredible team effort with the coaches, artists, and their loved ones being involved in the process. With Carson at the helm from the stage, we are excited to share a unique ‘Voice’ experience that will feel both new and familiar.”

The Top 17 artists, who will be at their homes in different towns across the country, will still have mentoring sessions with their coach and will also be provided with guidance in regards to their wardrobe, choreography, and art direction to enhance their home performances.

“The Voice” Season 18 will air Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on NBC.
