The Voice 2021 start time, channel

The Voice season 20 airs today (Tuesday, March 2) at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

The big red chairs are back tonight when you watch The Voice 2021 online. The blind auditions continue on season 20, which is the 10-year anniversary of The Voice. Expect more great performances from talented singers, all vying to be music's next sensation. The Voice winner gets $100,000 and a recording contract with Republic Records.

The Voice 2021 judges are Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas. The latter is back for his second stint as a judge, after giving up his seat to Gwen Stefani in The Voice season 19. And of course, Carson Daly is hosting, as he's done for all previous installments.

The Voice season 20 is following health guidelines and precautions due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

What remains the same is the competitiveness among the judges. Shelton will look to cement his position as top judge, after netting seven wins. Clarkson has three wins, while Legend has one. Jonas, meanwhile, is still looking for his first win. Could the second time be the charm?

Here is everything to know about how to watch The Voice 2021 online.

How to watch The Voice 2021 in the US

In the U.S., fans can watch The Voice season 20 blind auditions continue on Tuesday, March 2 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

The broadcast network can be accessed with one of the best TV antennas or through a cable TV package.

If you've already cut the cord and don't have cable, you can watch NBC on a live TV service, like Sling TV, FuboTV, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV and AT&T TV Now.

Of these options, we recommend Sling and FuboTV. The Voice is also available on Peacock. They're three of the best streaming services in the market.

Sling TV

Sling TV offers a three-day free trial to check out all of its live TV features. The Sling Blue package includes more than 50 channels including NBC and Fox (in select cities), AMC, Bravo, Food Network, HGTV, Lifetime and USA. 


Fubo.TV is a great alternative to a cable package. With the Family Plan ($65 per month), you get over 120 channels, including all the local broadcast networks and top cable brands like AMC, E!, HGTV, FX, ESPN, Syfy and Paramount Network. 


Peacock is NBCUniversal's very own streaming network. The ad-supported Free tier comes with over 7,500 hours of content, while Peacock Premium ($4.99 per month) lets you stream new episodes of current shows the next day. 

How to watch The Voice 2021 in the UK

Bad news, Brits. While you can watch the The Voice UK currently airing on the telly, the American version isn't airing on any UK channels.

For Americans abroad who want to use the services they already pay for, check out ExpressVPN.

How to watch The Voice 2021 in Canada

Canadians can tune into The Voice season 20 at the same time as Americans, so the premiere airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.

The Voice 2021 judges, mentors and advisors

Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend all return from last fall's cycle for spring 2021 season. Nick Jonas takes back his big red chair from Gwen Stefani.

The Voice 2021 mega mentor has not been announced yet. But the battle advisors are country music duo Dan + Shay (Team Blake), Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi (Team Kelly), R&B singer Brandy (Team Legend) and actor/singer Darren Criss (Team Nick).

The Voice 2021 auditions and schedule

The first few weeks of every Voice season is dedicated to the blind auditions. Here is the schedule for The Voice season 20 as we know it:

Monday, March 1: Blind auditions premiere
Tuesday, March 2: Blind auditions part 2
Monday, March 8: Blind auditions part 3
Tuesday, March 9: Blind auditions part 4

Starting March 15, the show starts airing only on Monday nights. It's likely that there's a fifth round of blind auditions, then the format shifts to battles. 

Later in the season, we'll get to knockout rounds, then live performances and results. The grand finale date isn't set yet, but we're guessing it's either May 17 or May 24.
