New Coaching Duo Dan + Shay Make a Well-Rounded Team | The Voice | NBC

After more than a decade of being on the air, NBC's The Voice is switching things up a little in its 25th season. For the first time ever, the roster of Coaches includes a musical duo — Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) — who occupy a specially-made "Double Chair" weighing around 900 pounds. While they bring double the talent, the pair do not get any extra Steals and Saves. Learning to act as a single unit took some time.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

''[The] thing you forget about when you’re strategizing like that is that there are cameras on you at all times, there are microphones on you at all times," Mooney recently told NBC Insider. "There have been times where we’re sitting there, then you think about it. 'Oh man, their families are literally watching this on screen.'"

How will they fare against returning veterans like John Legend, Reba McEntire, and Chance the Rapper?

Below, we recap the ebbs and flows of Team Dan + Shay on The Voice. Keep checking back here week after week to learn how the duo's crop of Artists is doing — from who they picked in the Blind Auditions to the Battles, Knockouts, Playoffs, and everything in between.
