The Voice is set to become a lot more interesting once the reality competition series comes back for season 15 in late September. According to E! News, the upcoming season of The Voice will also feature a companion series, titled The Comeback Stage, which will feature music star Kelsea Ballerini as a judge.
The Comeback Stage will see Ballerini mentoring six contestants who performed during the Blind Auditions but failed to get through to the next round. This companion series will give them a second chance to do so, and book their spot in the Top 13 live shows, which are scheduled to take place in November.
At the beginning of the series, Kelsea Ballerini will pair the six artists into Battle Pairings, with each one of the contestants getting coached to perform an individual song. Ballerini will then pick the best artist from each pair, setting the stage for the Comeback Stage Finals. After completing the songs, two of them will be selected by “Dibs” singer and will compete during The Voice playoffs for the final spot. The winner will be determined by audience voice and will have his pick in joining the team he prefers.
The audience will be able to watch The Comeback Stage on The Voice Official App, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram TV, and NBC.com.
The Voice returns for season 15 on Monday, September 24 on NBC. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Kelly Clarkson return as coaches with the addition of Jennifer Hudson.
