Season 9 of The Voice begins on Nine later this month, promising its “biggest, boldest and most controversial season.”
All four Coaches Delta Goodrem, Boy George, Kelly Rowland and Guy Sebastian return, along with new host Renee Bargh (Extra) and returning host Darren McMullen (despite those controversial comments he gave to TV Tonight!).
Up for grabs is an EMI Music contacts with $100,000 in prizemoney. Once again, “All-Stars” are back for a second shot alongside an international winner of The Voice, a winner of Australian Idol, and the youngest artist to ever audition in any season across the globe.
This season will also introduce “the Block”: during the Blind Auditions, each Coach will be allowed two Blocks which will deny the other Coaches the chance to pitch for the voices they hear (it isn’t clear if that means they are also ruled out as a coach).
Nine will also reveal details of “The Playoffs” and “Showdowns” soon.
But the season is set to face disruption from COVID-19 restrictions, which are likely to see at least two coaches plus finalists having to appear remotely (further mentors perhaps?).
The Voice is produced for Nine by ITV Australia.
7pm Sunday May 24 on Nine.
