(NBC) Carson Daly will on “The Voice” stage tonight, but he won’t have any company.
The coaches and contestants will all be appearing from their homes as a result of COVID-19 social distancing. They’ll all gather remotely for the show’s playoff round.
“Everything’s done a little bit differently, but it’s going to be, I think cool. Because it is what it is,” Kelly Clarkson says.
Producers had to ship a lot of gear not only to the coaches, but to all of the contestants as well. The at-home performances will be a big change.
“I would love to have that crowd to feed that energy, but it’s not so bad. I think it’ll work out fine,” says contestant Todd Tilghman.
Tilghman will still have his own crowd: His eight kids.
“We have a built in audience,” he laughs.
Viewer votes help to decide which of 17 artists will be among the nine to advance.
“The Voice” airs tonight at 8 p.m. on 22News.
