If you find yourself eager to learn when The Voice season 17 — the first without Adam Levine — starts taping, you’re in luck. Production is going to be here on the blind auditions before you know it!
According to the official ticketing site for the NBC series, filming for the first stage of the competition (at least the first stage with the coaches) is going to be happening starting on Monday in Los Angeles. Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend are going to be there to survey the field and try to pick people for their teams. It’s going to be an incredibly-weird environment without Adam, mostly because there was probably a sense of stability with him there. He was such an integral part of the show from the beginning and even though he was frustrating at times, he delivered a lot of great moments.

So without Adam, we feel like more of the focus could be focused on the relationship between Blake and Gwen, and of course also the contestants themselves. The playing field is a little bit different now — we would imagine that more of the rock-focused artists would go to Gwen now. Yet, even with the change the easiest assumption to make is that someone from Team Blake will probably be the favorite to win the whole competition. That’s the way of things with this show! While occasionally you get a Maelyn Jarmon or someone else incredible who works their way into this show and becomes such a universal favorite, the easy default to go back to is that Blake’s going to have a bunch of country artists who go far — even if technically, he actually hasn’t won in a few seasons. Before Maelyn’s victory, the last two champions each hailed from Team Kelly. Maybe this will actually make him a little bit hungrier, but only time will tell.
As for The Voice, we just hope that the changes to the coaching roster will make viewers hungry to check out the series again. We are coming off of one of the lowest-rated seasons on record and while The Voice may be popular, this is not the same smash hit that it once was for NBC. There’s an added sense of vulnerability here that wasn’t quite there before.
