In the field of TV singing competition shows, The Voice has been able to stand out with its unique premise and celebrity coaches that bring a fun energy. But The Voice season 23 is going to mark the final run for the last of the original coaches, Blake Shelton.

While American Idol is the longest-running show in terms of years and The Masked Singer US is star-studded with its celebrity contestants, The Voice has been a lot of fun for fans to see the coaches have a friendly competition as they listen to identify promising young singers and then try and convince them to join their team. It all builds to a single winner, with both the performer and the mentoring coach getting to claim some glory.

Excited about The Voice season 23? Read on to find out everything that you need to know about the latest season.

Next episode of The Voice season 23 

The star-studded finale of The Voice is Tuesday, May 23, at 9 pm ET/PT.

Here's a description of the May 23 Live Finale episode: "The artists' final performances are relived as they sing one last time, and Carson Daly, A-list guests and the final five artists check in as they prepare for the live finale."

The Voice season 23 coaches

As he has been for the previous 22 seasons, Blake Shelton is one of the four coaches for The Voice season 23. However, it has already been announced that season 23 is the last for Shelton on the show. The country music star is the last of the original four coaches (him, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green) to exit the series. It's been a long, good run for Shelton, who not only gained a larger reputation from the show, but also ended up marrying one of his fellow coaches, Gwen Stefani.

Another veteran coach of The Voice taking part in season 23 is Kelly Clarkson. The former American Idol winner was a coach for eight straight seasons before skipping season 22, but she is back in the chair this time around. In addition to The Voice, Clarkson now also has her own daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The other two coaches for The Voice season 23 are rookies to the show, with Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan joining Shelton and Clarkson. Chance the Rapper is, no surprise, a rapper who became famous for his mixtapes, including the Grammy-winning Coloring Book. Niall Horan was a member of One Direction with Harry Styles, but has become his own solo act.

It has also been announced that country music legend Reba McEntire is going to serve as a "Mega Mentor" for the contestants on this season of The Voice.

How to watch The Voice season 23

The Voice season 23 is going to air first on TV on NBC before it makes its way to streaming on Peacock the next day.

With NBC being carried by all major cable providers, if you have a traditional pay-TV subscription then you are all set to watch the singing competition. If you’re making the move to live TV streaming services, platforms like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV carry NBC as part of their channel lineups.

For those who have cut the cord entirely and rely just on streaming services, you need a subscription to Peacock to be able to watch the latest episodes of The Voice.
