THE VOICE has made some big changes to season 23.

The upcoming season, which will serve as Blake Shelton’s final go-round in the competition, will have a very special Mega Mentor: Reba McEntire. (Notably, she served as Team Blake’s advisor back in season 1.)

There are also competition changes afoot, with a new “Playoff Pass.” Here’s what NBC said about it…

  • The Battles (starting March 27) – An all-new “Playoff Pass” allows both artists in a battle to advance, with the “Playoff Pass” winner gaining a major advantage when they skip the Knockout Rounds and automatically advance to Playoffs, taking them one step closer to the live shows. Each coach has one “Playoff Pass” and one “Steal” during this round. Seven artists per team advance (six competing in the Knockouts and one “Playoff Pass” artist).
  • The Knockouts – Artists are paired against each other, selecting their own songs to perform individually while their direct competitors watch and wait. Coaches choose the winner and the artist not selected is available for a “steal.” The pressure is on as each coach only has one “steal” during this round. Five artists per team advance (four Knockout winners and one “Playoff Pass” artist). 
  • The Playoffs (starting May 1) – The Playoffs are back, further bolstering the competition following the Knockouts. The 20 remaining artists hold nothing back, and tough decisions are made when each coach can only advance two artists to the live semi-finals.
  • The live shows kick off Monday, May 15 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).

THE VOICE season 23 will find Shelton facing off against new coaches Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan, as well as returning coach Kelly Clarkson.
