We're So Ready for Season 15 of NBC's The Voice!

Summer is almost over, which means it’s almost time for the two best things about fall: Halloween and The Voice.

The Voice Season 15 (yes, they’re already 15 seasons in) starts on September 24. This season, superstar Jennifer Hudson replaces Alicia Keys and joins The Voice veterans Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine.

Season 15 also has a new feature: a fifth judge (sort of). Country singer Kelsea Ballerini will coach six lucky singers who don’t make it past the iconic red swivel chairs on the new “Comeback Stage.” These artists will compete on a separate online contest for a chance to enter The Voice’s main show.

While we’re excited for the new season to start, we’re even more excited to have Jennifer Hudson added to the judging panel. Here are a few other things we’re excited about:

  1. Kelly Clarkson/Jennifer Hudson’s beautiful friendship

  2. Possibly a competitor winning The Voice who doesn’t originally make it past the red swivel chairs 

  3. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton’s banter and jabs

  4. The killer soundtrack to come once Season 15 is over

  5. John Legend as a Season 16 judge

Stay tuned for highlights, surprise moments, and our favorite contestants as the season progresses!
