Who Are The Voice Season 23 Coaches?

??Witnessing potential superstars in the making is one of the biggest draws to The Voice, but fans can't deny that the show's coaches are also a huge part of its appeal. This season is no different, as A-list singers Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson return for another round of intense vocal battles while welcoming newcomers Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper into the ring.

The country star and nine-time Voice winner is the show's longest-running coach. He's been sitting in one of those red chairs since the competition's debut in 2011, and he continues to be one of the most popular mentors with his combination of charm and wit -- and ability to find hidden gems.

Sadly, Shelton announced last year that this season of The Voice would be his last. "This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. ... I have to give a huge shout out to the singers -- the 'Voices,' who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent, and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their Coach. Lastly, it's about y'all, the fans, who watch and support these Artists, us Coaches, and everyone at The Voice who are chasing their dreams. It would not happen without you!"

Kelly Clarkson

 American Idol royalty is back to coach her ninth season of The Voice, having been with the show since 2018. Her impressive vocal and songwriting abilities have earned her three Grammy Awards and plenty of praise from her fellow coaches. She's also a fan favorite among Voice viewers for being an upbeat-but-firm mentor who takes no mess from her contestants.


After a brief hiatus from coaching, Clarkson is ready to return with a vengeance -- particularly for soon-to-be-ex-coach, Shelton. She recently joked that his leaving was a "gain for humanity."

The former One Direction member is joining The Voice family fresh off announcing this third solo album, The Show. He's ready to use his newly acquired coaching skills to help guide singers on their path to stardom, and he promises that season 23 will be full of unique performances and plenty of entertaining moments.

Here's a clip of him impersonating Shelton, who apparently can't stop reminding everyone that it's his last season.

Chance the Rapper

The Chicago rapper and Grammy Award-winner will be the second new addition to The Voice family and is delighted to bring his own style of mentorship to the show. On joining the show, he said: "I wanted to be a coach on The Voice because I like giving platforms to young artists -- especially people who are already seasoned in their trade and know what they're doing but just need the right spotlight. I wanted to be a part of the process."


And despite how charmingly cocky Shelton may be, the country singer isn't who Chance is worried about. "I think my biggest competition amongst the Coaches is probably Kelly, 'cause she's a seasoned vet, she's won a bunch of times, and people just gravitate towards her 'cause they know she's been in a competition. She's mega famous...But imma still win."

Who Is The Host Of The Voice?
