The Voice is ready for another all-new season with new coaches. Season 4 will introduce Usher and Shakira to the panel of coaches and they will be competing head-to-head with the American Idol crew for one night in May.

The Voice begins season 4 Monday, March 25 at 8pm with two-hour episodes on Mondays and one-hour episodes on Tuesdays at 8pm. However, the Tuesday night episodes will be expanded to two-hours on April 30 (the second night of the Knockout Rounds) and May 7 (the second night of the Live Playoffs). In addition, NBC has added an extra episode on Wednesday, May 8 at 8pm that will reveal the Top 12 singers. It will air opposite the Final 3 performance episode of American Idol.

The live shows will begin Monday, May 13 and the winner will be revealed on the special Voice season 4 finale Tuesday, June 18 at 9pm.

This new schedule means that The Voice will be slightly shorter for season 4 than it was for season 3. While everything from the Knockout Rounds to the finale will remain the same length, the earlier rounds will be shortened. In season 3 there were four weeks of Blind Auditions followed by three weeks of Battle Rounds. For season 4, however, The Voice only has five weeks to fill before the Knockout Rounds, so the Blind Auditions and Battle Rounds will be slightly condensed.

Are you excited for The Voice season 4 to begin? Will the show be able to beat Dancing with the Stars in the ratings, and will the special Wednesday episode help to cripple American Idol?
