'The Voice' Season 18: Bon Jovi, Gwen Stefani, Jonas Brothers and Lady Antebellum to perform in two-day finale
This is the finale week of 'The Voice'. Even though a lot of us expected that the show would be pushed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak, the team managed to keep the show going, remotely.
With the pandemic in play, we have seen the coaches and contestants put in extra efforts with their remote performances while host Carson Daly continues to host from the studio with a minimal team, to keep up with the high standards of entertainment set by the show.
This is the first time in the history of the show that 5 contestants are competing in the finale. Micah Iverson from Team Kelly Clarkson, CammWess from Team John Legend, and Thunderstorm Artis from Team Nick Jonas have made it to the finale. Blake Shelton is the only coach with two contestants competing in the finale — Toneisha Harris and Todd Tilghman, Toneisha being a last-minute save by the American audience at the end of the semi-final episode. She beat Team Jonas' star performer Allegra Miles, Megan Danielle from Team Kelly, indie artist Zan Fiskum from coach Legend's team, and Joanna Serenko from her own team.
The two-day finale event will have the five finalists sing their hearts out and it will be interesting to see who will win the finale trophy. Also adding star value to the show will be rocker Bon Jovi performing 'Limitless' from his new album 'Bon Jovi 2020', which is scheduled to release this fall.
Champion coach Blake Shelton, having won the show more times than any of the other coaches on the show will also be seen performing on the show. His beau, 'Hollaback Girl' hitmaker Gwen Stefani will be accompanying him for the performance. Together they will be singing their hit song 'Nobody but You'. This song is Gwen's first-ever #1 country single and Shelton's 27th career #1 country single.
Multiple Grammy award-winning coach Kelly will perform her new single 'I Dare You' while global superstar coach Nick Jonas will perform a special cover of 'Until We Meet Again'. His brothers Kevin and Joe will be joining him later and together the trio will perform their newly released single 'X' featuring Latin GRAMMY Award-winning reggaeton superstar KAROL G.
Multi-platinum singer-songwriter coach John Legend will perform a stirring medley including his #1 hit single 'All of Me', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' as well as his reminiscent new single 'Conversations in the Dark'. Lady Antebellum will also be a part of the finale event. They will be seen performing 'Champagne Night', which was created on Season 2 of NBC's song-writing series 'Songland'.
On Monday, May 18, each of the five finalists will deliver two performances out of which one will be an original song. According to NBC's website, 'The Voice' has enlisted the help of top industry producers and 'Songland' mentors to help produce each artiste's original song.
Ester Dean (Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj), Shane McAnally (three-time Grammy-winning songwriter and producer of Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson and Sam Hunt with over 40 #1 country records and two-time ACM Songwriter of the Year) and Ryan Tedder (lead singer of OneRepublic and four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer of Adele, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Jonas Brothers) will be seen helping the contestants bring their original songs to life.
Viewers will get a deeper look into the process of bringing these songs to life than ever before. The 'Songlang' hitmakers along with Tedder will lend their expertise to the coaches and artists as they come together to creatively adapt and produce the songs to fit the individual styles of each artiste. The winner of 'The Voice' Season 18 will be announced on Tuesday, May 19.
