With the Blind Auditions and Battles done and dusted, season 25 of the "The Voice" reverts to once weekly episodes during April until the live shows start in May. You can watch "The Voice" on NBC and Peacock in the U.S. But don't worry if you're away when it's on, as we'll explain how to watch "The Voice" season 25 online and from anywhere with a VPN.

"The Voice" streaming details, TV channels, start time

"The Voice" season 25 is currently going out on Mondays.
Time — 8/7c
•  U.S. — NBC /  Peacock
•  Watch anywhere — try NordVPN risk-free

Ever-present host Carson Daly and stalwart coach John Legend are back for season 25, with 'Queen of Country' Reba McEntire and hip-hop star Chance the Rapper both trying and pick out the contestants that they think could have a career in the industry.

The big change this year is the introduction of that double chair, which will be occupied by three-time Grammy winning duo Dan + Shay. And it didn't take long for them to pick up their first protegees in the season premiere — 17-year-old twins Justin and Jeremy Garcia wowed the judges and were quick to join Team D+S, although the dream duo have subsequently been stolen by Reba.

After the tensions of the Blind Auditions and whittling things down in the Battles, 28 talented artists made it through to the Knockouts. And to help the remaining wannabes make the most of their talents, country music superstar Keith Urban will be in the studio as this year's Mega Mentor. Will that give the edge to Dan + Shay's or Reba's respective stables of singers?

The first round of Knockouts gave the judges the opportunity to put similar singers up against one another to narrow down their squads. Josh Sanders and Ashley Bryant, for example, had a country-off on Team Reba. While Kyle Schuesler and Anya True went closed off the show with a powerful head-to-head.

Ultimately, four more hopefuls left the show, with the rest hoping to cling on in the second Knockout show to land a place in the forthcoming Playoffs. 

So who will follow in the footsteps of Koryn Hawthorne, Nicolle Galyon, Cassadee Pope and last year's winner Huntley? Keep reading to find out where to watch "The Voice" season 25 in the U.S. and beyond.
