The Voice is a show that’s unafraid to change things up as it goes along, and after adding mid-season tweaks like the steal and the save, the show has thrown another new wrinkle into the format. Coldplay front man Chris Martin will join this season as a “universal advisor” to all four teams as part of a revamped version of the Knockout Round (so we guess that means Coldplay’s forthcoming album Ghost Stories must be pretty much done).
Martin will appear on the March 31, April 1 and April 7 episodes, advising the remaining contestants for a sudden death round which will find two singers performing the same song individually. This contrasts with the old Knockouts, where singers could perform a song of their choice. Shakira, Usher, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will still have the ability to use one steal in the new elimination round.
