When your 'Voice' changes

The NBC singing competition “The Voice” returns for season 26 this fall with the current mentor lineup almost entirely replaced.

Chance the Rapper, the duo Dan + Shay and John Legend are all bowing out, with only country music legend Reba McEntire returning. Joining her for her third consecutive season will be “Voice” newcomers Snoop Dogg and Michael Bublé, plus former coach Gwen Stefani — back for her eighth season after having served in seasons 7, 9, 12, 17, 19, 22 and 24.

The newcomers aren't entirely new. Hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg was a season 20 mega-mentor and crooner Bublé was a season 3 adviser to Team Blake Shelton.

No specific airdate for the season premiere was announced.
