Chance the Rapper Is Making a Big Coaching Adjustment for The Voice Season 25

The rapper is making changes to how he approaches his Artists for Season 25 of the show. 

By Jackie Manno

Chance the Rapper is making a return to The Voice Season 25, after an epic debut in Season 23. But this time, he's shaking things up about the way he approaches his Artists.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

''Last season I was really intent on judging based on the round, right?" he told NBC Insider. ‘"Cause it's like, you’re in the moment, this is the performance you gave regardless of how well it went in rehearsal, in green room...but also, that’s not the way that the real industry works,." 

He continued, ''There are really big moments, but there are a ton of moments. And if you were really judged and critiqued off of singular moments, then we wouldn’t have careers. We wouldn’t continue doing it. So [I'm] having the grace to recognize the Artists that you really wanna work with and have these moments with and give those platforms to is something that I’ll probably bring into this new season."

Why Chance the Rapper loves doing The Voice

The ''No Problem'' hitmaker opened up about what makes being a Coach on The Voice so special to him. 

''I really love doing the show for a lot of reasons, and I think one of them is just the creative outlet that you get in collaborating with Artists, on re-imagining songs with The Voice band, which is one of the greatest bands and always has the greatest players on TV,'' he said.

He continued, "We’re surrounded by great Artists, being with the Coaches is inspiring, and so is the crew. Everybody’s funny! That’s the cool thing is we’re always joking around, we’re always doing some dumb stuff, and it’s like, whether you’re on camera or not on camera, there are great moments that we have.''

When Chance first joined The Voice in Season 23, he revealed toNBC Insider, “I wanted to be a Coach on The Voice because I like giving platforms to young Artists — especially people who are already seasoned in their trade and know what they’re doing but just need the right spotlight. I wanted to be a part of the process."
