Who Is AJR? What to Know About the Group Performing on The Voice Season 24 Finale

The band will be performing on the Season 24 Finale alongside Keith Urban, Tyla, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Normally, on The Voice, musical performances come from the contestants as they attempt to impress the Coaches and audiences watching at home, in an attempt to win the contest. However, it’s not only up-and-coming musicians. Sometimes musicians or bands who have already made it big grace The Voice’s stage, as will be the case on the Season 24 finale. Earth, Wind & Fire, Keith Urban, Tyla, and AJR all performed during the two-part finale's second night on Tuesday, December 19. 

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. 

If you’re not familiar with AJR, here’s what you need to know about the band before the big episode. 

Who Is AJR?

AJR is an indie pop band consisting of brothers Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met — hence the name, AJR. All three brothers are vocalists in addition to being multi-instrumentalists. The group began busking in New York City in the late ‘00s and early ‘10s before breaking through in 2012 with their debut video, “I'm Ready.” The song, which features a sample of SpongeBob SquarePants, got the attention of “Chandelier” singer Sia after the brothers shared it on social media.

In late 2013, AJR released their debut major-label EP, 6foot1, and they released a few more tunes ahead of the first full album, 2015’s Living Room. Since then, the group has released four more LPs: The Click (2017), Neotheater (2019), OK Orchestra (2021), and The Maybe Man (2023). In addition to “I’m Ready,” they’re known for singles like "Weak," "World's Smallest Violin,” and “Bang!”

AJR Perform Two of Their Biggest Hits on The Voice Season 24 Finale

During their performance on The Voice’s season finale, AJR played a medley of two of the songs from their two most recent albums: “Bang!,” a cut from OK ORCHESTRA, and “Yes I’m a Mess,” from their latest album, “The Maybe Man.” Their performance made for a unique stage set-up, with a treadmill-style running man set-up at its center, as the band took the Voice stage complete with plenty of pyrotechnics.

Monday’s episode begins at 8/7c on NBC, and Tuesday’s — which will feature AJR’s performance — begins at 9/8c. Episodes will be available to stream on Peacock the following day.
