The Voice is finally back on television with its eleventh season.  Although the show has been running since 2011, there’s never a dull moment, and each season brings in new talent.

Returning for their eleventh year in a row, coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are ready to hear what the artists bring to the stage.  In addition, Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus, the show’s two new coaches, are excited to be a part of The Voice team.  The artists kept the coaches on their toes throughout the blind auditions, even if that meant fighting for truly fantastic performers.

The newest addition to the judge panel on the show is an extremely popular singer, Miley Cyrus.  Cyrus grew up famous for her Disney show Hannah Montana.  While Cyrus’ appearance and music style have changed drastically over her many years in the spotlight, her vocal abilities continue to improve.  Teenagers, including many students at Schreiber, are big fans of hers.

“I am so excited to watch Miley be a judge on the Voice this year.  I’ve listened to her music ever since I was in elementary school,” said junior Mia Froccaro.

However, Cyrus is said to be leaving The Voice for season 12 and returning the following season.  During this time former The Voice coach Gwen Stefani will take her place.

The second new judge, Alicia Keys, is an extremely accomplished artist in the music industry, having won 15 Grammy awards.

Keys decided to join The Voice so she could share her experience and knowledge of music with other artists.  She is different than any other coach, believing that artists should write music to inspire those who don’t.

Keys brings a new degree of sincerity and musicality that no other coach possesses, making her a special and unique addition.

The teams are continuing to improve as singers advance through elimination rounds as hundreds of thousands of viewers watch every night.  People can’t wait to watch as the show continues and the winner is finally picked.

Make sure to check out The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8p.m. on NBC.
