NBC Sets Schedule for 'The Voice'

Knockout rounds begin April 30 and finale arrives on June 18

"The Voice" has set its schedule for the coming season, which starts March 25, goes into "knockout" rounds on April 30 and wraps up with a winner being crowned on June 18.

Two-hour editions of "The Voice" will air on April 30 and May 7 before a special Wednesday edition on May 8 will unveil the top 12.

As in previous years, the show breaks down into four stages: blind auditions, battle rounds, the knockouts and the live performance shows. The TV audience determines which two singers go home each week during the live rounds.

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton return as coaches with two rookies, Usher and Shakira, taking the place of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green in the big red chairs.
