Taping 1:
Team Kelly:
Alex Guthrie vs. Injoy Fountain – Home (Marc Broussard)
-The coaches apparently chose Injoy, but Kelly sent Alex through. The source was surprised no one stole Injoy.

Team John:
Khalea Lynee vs. Zoe Upkins – The Boy is Mine (Brandy feat. Monica) [SAVED BY JOHN; Kelly and Gwen tried stealing]
-A good, sassy battle. Both were good, but coaches were impressed that Zoe was able to keep up with Khalea.

Team Blake:
Ricky Duran vs. Marina Chello – Valerie (Mark Ronson/Amy Winehouse) [SAVED BY BLAKE; Kelly tried stealing]
An enjoyable battle, the source said Ricky was better but Marina was great as well.

Team Kelly:
Shane Q vs. Melinda Rose – Too Good At Goodbyes (Sam Smith) [SAVED BY KELLY; John tried stealing]
-Shane was “clearly outstanding,” but he was nervous. They didn’t know why Melinda was stolen or saved.

Team Gwen:
Royce Lovett vs. Kiara Brown – Turn Your Lights Down Low (Bob Marley) [STOLEN BY KELLY; Gwen tried saving]
-They loved this battle! Gwen said she was “falling in love with Kiara as a human being.”
-Per source, “Gwen had admitted she had in mind saving someone else on her team and so Kiara was nice and said she can go ahead and save them instead.”

Team John:
Katie Kadan vs. Destiny Rayne – Tiny Dancer (Elton John) [STOLEN BY GWEN; Blake also tried stealing]
-Source described it best: “Amazing! Katie is a beast and tone is incredible! All judges were on their feet and the crowd went crazy for it! Destiny was at a disadvantage but she stepped it up and proved she was able to keep up with Katie. A great way to end the taping.”

Coach changes – Subtract Levine Add Stefani…two male coaches and two females…all is balanced in the world.

The order of the chair sitting arrangement has been declassified by a recent audition attendee. The image showed “Blake, John, Gwen, and Kelly” sitting in that order. Unfortunately, the tweet was deleted and we have no hard evidence to support the claim is available. On the other hand, several people do confirm that they saw that said image.

Gwen should bring some much-needed change to who is selected into the season in respects to the genre. Hopefully, her style will unseat the issues of past seasons part in Shevine is a broke relationship and Levine’s choosing acts out to his taste or to compete for head on with Shelton.

As you can see Legend, Clarkson, and Shelton each already has a big red boofy chair that spins. What can possibly go wrong from this point forward?

Battle tapings: Fri 8/2 and Sat 8/3
KO tapings: Wed 8/14/ and Thurs 8/15

Taping starts(ed) in Los Angeles from June 24- June 28, 2019.

SPOILERS are part of this page and are revealed from this point onwards.

Earlier news for archive purposes and those who need a catch-up note.

Well, the news today was Adam Levine is not returning for season 17. Many of his fans will be surprised at this news.

The official Tweet appears below.

Gwen Stefani returns in his place.

Our friend and coach Adam Levine made the decision not to return next season. We’re going to miss Adam, but The Voice is family and family it’s “see you soon,” never “goodbye.”

Gwen Stefani returns with Kelly, John, and Blake on the Voice stage this fall. Join us in welcoming Gwen, and sharing our heartfelt gratitude to Adam!

In reaction – some fans are celebrating Adam’s decision to leave and Gwen will bring back some diversity in the contestant selection process. On the other hand, some claim she is worse than him. Others point to the power of the Shelton Stefani relationship influence over the production.

Who will be the coaches?

Superstars Kelly ClarksonJohn LegendAdam Levine and Blake Shelton are all set to return as coaches for the upcoming 17th season of the four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition. Carson Daly also returns as host.

In the meantime, the current season continues with the Top 8 performance show on Monday, May 13 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT). The Top 8 artists will perform in front of the coaches for America’s vote, and in a The Voice first, the Top 8 will pair up to perform duets on songs from the Beatles, history’s most celebrated band. The Top 4 finalists will be revealed on the live show airing Tuesday, May 14 (9-10 p.m.).

The Voice 2019 Season 17 News Contestants Judges

Earlier conjecture!

Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are likely to be renewed because they are the core coaches since the show’s inception. Adam quit on May 24, 2019!

His replacement is Gwen Stefani who

As it seems right now, has a gig in Mexico on 6/22, and returns to her Vegas residency on 7/5

therefore, auditions will probably be taped sometime between those dates.

Her residency has dates from 7/5 to 7/26, so after that should work for the timeframe of contestants returning for battles in August.

She again has residency dates for 10/11 to 11/2, lives wouldn’t begin until after that.

It appears she had a plan B just in case.

While Kelly Clarkson also has signed a new contract with NBC for her talk show and it included this show.

From sources, it is only a short ride between both studios and reports that Kelly has mentioned doing both shows during recent concert performances.

So if those two scenarios prove correct then there is only one chair to fill. Will it be Alicia Keys, John Legend or another person? Standby.

April 3, 2019…

The executive auditions in LA for season 17 are in the next week or two, so keep an eye out for season 16 contestants who didn’t make it or possible others traveling to LA soon.
