After a hiatus following the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic in March, Telemundo’s La Voz returns Sunday, July 26, for its final rounds.
Coaches Luis Fonsi, Alejandra Guzmán, Carlos Vives and Wisin will return to Miami to work with the remaining 28 contestants who will take the stage to kick-off “Los Enfrentamientos” or Cross Battles. Coaches will challenge each other with members of the team competing with performances. Each battle winner will be decided solely by audience votes. The winner of the competition will take home $200,000 in cash money and a recording contract with Universal Music Group to produce, record and commercially release a single.
La Voz, or The Voice, one of Telemundo’s most successful reality shows, would have normally already crowned its winner. But when the pandemic hit, the network temporarily paused production “out of an abundance of caution.”
In a statement released to the media, Telemundo said: “As a precautionary measure, the upcoming Live Shows, in which contestants perform in front of a live studio audience, will be postponed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine an appropriate date to finalize the competition and provide both contestants and viewers the finale they deserve.”
The new episodes that begin airing July 26 will be filmed in Miami but there will be no audience.
At the same time, pop duo Mau & Ricky return as coaches of El Comeback Stage, a digital series, on July 20. The eventual winner will join winners of “Los Enfrentamientos” during the semifinal of La Voz.
Jacky Bracamontes and Jorge Bernal will continue to host.
