However, The Voice season 11 will be telecast from Monday, 19 September at 8pm EST on NBC.

"Two women coaches is what The Voice needs," Keys says in the trailer for the upcoming season of the reality series that sets the tone of the season. Sunday's episode will feature a 30-minute edition of the singing competition, which will include the Blind Auditions and a performance by the coaches – Cyrus, Keys, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

The eventful season premiere will see the Voice coaches gearing up from day 1 itself towards building a strong team of singing talent. With a full-blown bromance from the ends of veteran coaches Levine and Shelton offering a healthy dose of humour and entertainment during the competition, Cyrus's grit and "youthful spirit" will be something to look out for.

Keys's addition to the judging panel only increases the chances of repeating the history of a woman coach winning the show - Christina Aguilera was the first woman coach to win The Voice last season. Unlike the other three, reports suggest that Keys might be one of the most calculated coaches during the season.

"One thing can either inspire a person or break a person. I am looking forward to rooting people on and being here for the dreamers like me. I feel like I have a lot to share and my perspective is something people will receive," Keys says in a sneak peek video for season 11 of The Voice.

Cyrus on the other hand promises no "genre wall" for the contestants in her team. "If you're rock, you go with Adam; if you're country, you go with Blake. With me, I don't think there's that genre wall. If you do country, you could want to be on my team," the Wrecking Ball singer adds.

She also posted a photo featuring the four coaches on her Instagram account reminding her fans about the special premiere of the NBC reality series.
