EW was on the scene at NBC’s press screening of The Voice‘s season 6 premiere episode on Thursday, and you can check out a few spoiler-free tidbits from the show when it returns on Monday, along with a first look at one of the blind auditions, below.
Season 6 of NBC’s hit singing competition series marks the return of Usher and Shakira, and it’s clear right off the bat that both judges, who made their debut on The Voice in season 4, are hungry for their first win.
Shakira and Usher battle seasoned mentors Blake Shelton and Adam Levine for the chance to coach quite a few powerhouse vocalists that cross The Voice stage in this season’s first episode. One such hopeful is Bria Kelly, who wowed judges with her gravelly rendition of “Steamroller Blues.”
Expect many quick quips to be exchanged, as well as what appears to be a surprising alliance between two of the coaches, when The Voice finally returns. And don’t worry, SheVine shippers: From the promo trailer we saw during the screening, as always, it looks like there will be plenty of bromantic moments ahead for Adam and Blake in season 6 as well.
The Voice season 6 premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
