Award-winning former coach Jennifer Hudson returns to The Voice stage along with superstar recording artists Black Eyed Peas, Luke Combs, Lady Antebellum, Dua Lipa and Season 16 winner Maelyn to perform on the live two-hour Tuesday, Dec. 17 season finale (9-11 p.m. ET/PT) of NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice.

One of the four finalists – Ricky Duran from Team Blake Shelton, Jake Hoot from Team Kelly Clarkson, Katie Kadan from Team John Legend and Rose Short from Team Gwen Stefani – will be crowned the winner. This is the first finale in seven seasons in which all four coaches have an artist competing in the finale.

On part one of the live finale, airing Monday, Dec. 16 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT), the final four artists perform in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Each finalist performs three times – one new solo cover, a special holiday duet with their coach and they also debut their first original single. One of the four artists will be a step closer to being named “The Voice.” Then on part two of the live finale, airing Tuesday, Dec. 17 (9-11 p.m. ET/PT), a new winner will be crowned “The Voice.”

Award-winning vocal powerhouse and former Voice coach Jennifer Hudson returns to The Voice stage for a special performance of “Memory,” the iconic song from the upcoming Universal Pictures film Cats, which is in theaters everywhere Dec. 20.

Iconic multi-platinum hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas will perform their newest upbeat hit single “RITMO (Bad Boys for Life).” Black Eyed Peas member and Voice UK coach served as Gwen Stefani’s Battle Advisor this season.

Multi-platinum CMA and ACM Award winner Luke Combs will perform his hit single “Even Though I’m Leaving” from his latest record-setting album, “What You See Is What You Get.” The single is a multiple week #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase Charts, making it his seventh-consecutive #1 single and extending his record-breaking streak at country radio. Combs recently won twice at the 2019 CMA Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year.

Award-winning country radio staple and record-breaking trio Lady Antebellum will perform “What If I Never Get Over You” from their critically acclaimed #1 album “Ocean.”

Global pop superstar Dua Lipa will perform “Don’t Start Now,” the lead track from her eagerly awaited forthcoming album, “Future Nostalgia.” “Don’t Start Now,” which is already a worldwide hit with over 170 million streams and an iTunes Global #1, is an adrenaline-fueled, feel-good dance floor anthem of positivity and self-empowerment.

On the heels of her international breakthrough as winner of Season 16 of The Voice and recent chart-topping success, Maelyn Jarmon, who now goes by Maelyn, will perform a spirited and seasonal take on the holiday classic “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
