Which coaches will probably skip it!

Blake Shelton started on The Voice season 1 in 2011 alongside OG coaches CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera. Don’t expect an appearance from Christina. After she left the show for good after season 10, she threw shade at the show every chance she got. Also, former coach Alicia Keys made it clear that she’s not a big Blake Shelton fan. She’ll likely be sitting this one out.
