A Voice Coach since 2019, Legend believes the Artists just keep getting better and better. In fact, he's stunned that the series has yet to have a shortage on performances that have left him starstruck. “How does America just keep having so many great singers that we have access to?" Legend asked. "Because The Voice just keeps replenishing. Every season we get some phenomenal voices in here.”

As a Coach and veteran of the music industry, Legend even admitted something surprising. “It does make you feel a bit humble because these people sing better than we do! Some of them are just like ridiculously good,” he said. “Some of these people are just incredible. I’m in awe and I’m inspired by them quite a lot.”

To witness the phenomenal voices that Legend is referencing for yourself, be sure to tune into the Season 22 premiere of The Voice, airing Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock.
