Who doesn’t love singing competition series The Voice? The NBC show has such a unique concept where not only do the contestants have to compete against each other, but the judges go head to head as well!

This season, we’ve got Blake Shelton, John Legend, Gwen Stefani, and Camila Cabello on the judge’s panel. Though next year in spring 2023, things are going to look a bit different. Shelton will be coming back, along with returning coach Kelly Clarkson. But there’s going to be two fresh faces coming aboard!

Grammy-Award winning artist Chance the Rapper and singer/songwriter Niall Horan join Shelton and Clarkson, as the foursome goes head to head, forging their teams in the hopes of coming out the victor. It’s going to be so exciting!

The Voice has been on our television screens for years, but just how long has it been going for? We’ve got the answer for you below!

How long has The Voice been on TV?

The series first premiered on April 26, 2011. That means it’s been going on for over 11 years. But why is the 2022 season billed as season 22? That’s because the series used to air with new seasons twice a year. So each year, viewers would get two seasons.

But beginning this year, the show is moving to just one season a year going forward. Though the series has kept its two-night schedule, airing on Monday and Tuesday evenings each week.

Do you remember who the OG coaches were all the way back on The Voice season 1? The series started off with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green.

Shelton has remained on the show every season, but will be exiting following the spring 2023 run. Levine stayed a constant until season 16. Aguilera and Green held their places for the first three seasons, then each returned for season 5. Aguilera then took a seat once again in seasons 8 and 10.

The Voice season 22 airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Episodes are available to stream the next day they air on Peacock.
