Tonight, the big red chairs are turn-turn-turning around again on The Voice season 2023 online. And for Blake Shelton, it'll be the final time he sits in one of those big red chairs. The country singer is leaving The Voice after 12 years serving as coach on  NBC's singing competition series.

Shelton previously announced, "I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after season 23. This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me."

While he will be missed, the show must go on. For his final season, Shelton will be joined by returning coach Kelly Clarkson (for her ninth installment). Making their debuts on the panel are Chance the Rapper and former One Direction star Niall Horan. 

As usual, The Voice season 23 starts with blind auditions, with hopefuls singing their hearts. If the coaches want one on their team, they push a button that swivels their big red chairs around to get their first look. 

After the blind auditions, Reba McEntire will serve as the mega mentor for the knockout rounds.
