THE VOICE to Debut First-Ever Companion Series THE COMEBACK STAGE on

— September 28, 2018

THE VOICE’s return this week did not disappoint, delivering a highly coveted "four-chair turn" in the Season 15 premiere. And now, for the first time ever, the four-time Emmy® Award-winning hit musical competition series delivers a double dose of THE VOICE with a new, 10-part, online companion series titled THE COMEBACK STAGE. Episode 1 and 2 of the exclusive online series is available now for viewing on Six artists who do not make a team during the Blind Auditions will have a second chance at seeing the signature red chairs turn, and the winner will earn a spot in the Top 13 Live Shows in November. Serving as the online companion series’ fifth coach is chart-topping country music star and acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Kelsea Ballerini (@KelseaBallerini) who joins coaches Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson), Jennifer Hudson (@IAMJHUD), Adam Levine (@adamlevine), and Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton). Here’s how the new online companion series works:
  1. Six comeback artists will be chosen out of the artists who previously auditioned during the Blind Audition stage.
  2. Kelsea Ballerini will pair these six comeback artists into three Battle Pairings, coaching each artist on a song, before they go head-to-head in a Battle Round – where Ballerini will determine three winners who will move forward to the Comeback Stage Finals.
  3. In the Comeback Stage Finals, the three winning artists from the Battle Round will perform a final song, and Ballerini will identify the two talented artists who will move onto the final phase of the series.
  4. Then, the two comeback artists will return to THE VOICE stage to perform in the first Twitter Instant Save of the season during the Live Playoffs Results show, airing Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV2.
  5. The winning Comeback Artist will then choose which team they would like to join moving forward in the competition: Team Kelly, Team Jennifer, Team Adam, or Team Blake.
  6. A sneak peak of each digital episode will be previewed on THE VOICE broadcast on Sept. 25, Oct. 1-2, Oct. 8-9, Oct. 15, Oct. 22, Oct. 29, and Nov. 5.
