AceShowbiz - "The Voice" has announced new coaches in upcoming season 25. It was revealed on Thursday, June 22 that country stars Dan + Shay has been tapped to be the first coaching duo in the singing competition show's history.
The duo shared the exciting news on their Instagram account. "SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL BE JOINING @nbcthevoice IN 2024 AS THE FIRST COACHING DUO!" they wrote in the caption.
In season 25, Dan + Shay will join fellow coach Reba McEntire, who is stepping in for longtime coach Blake Shelton in season 24, as well as returning coaches John Legend and Chance the Rapper. While it's the first time for Dan + Shay to serve as coaches, they are no strangers to "The Voice". The duo previously worked with Blake as his team's Battle Round Advisors in season 20 back in 2021.
Back in May, "The Voice" announced Reba as the replacement for Blake, who exited the show after decades. "I'm not really worried about the competition," she told E! News at the time. "I'll give them some tips every once and a while that will help them, but I'll be easy on them."
Blake himself gave the music legend his stamp of approval. "I'm excited about Reba coming on board," he revealed to the news outlet. "It's kind of meant to be I think. From the versions of the story that I've heard, she was the original coach that they wanted here on 'The Voice' to be the country representation. So, now that I've had my run, for her to finally get the job that she was meant to have to begin with, it will be fun."
"The Voice" returns this fall for season 24, which will see Reba, John, Chance and Niall Horan as the coaches.
