'The Voice' to Feature Performances by Michael Buble, Ne-Yo, Matchbox Twenty
The Voice is ringing in the holidays with the ghosts of cycles past.
Three contestants from season two -- Juliet Simms (Team CeeLo), Chris Mann (Team Christina) and RaeLynn (Team Blake) – will return to perform on Dec. 11.
Additionally, Michael Buble, Ne-Yo and Matchbox Twenty will also perform on the show in early December, NBC announced Thursday.
Buble and Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas were mentors during season three, while Ne-Yo appeared as a mentor in season two.
On Tuesday, Dec. 4 Ne-Yo will perform “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)” with the remaining contestants. In addition, Matchbox Twenty is joined by artists to perform their new hit, “Overjoyed.”
On Monday, Dec. 10, Bublé will team with artists for his new song “Christmas, Baby Please Come Home.” That same night, coach Blake Shelton will be joined by his team for a rendition of “White Christmas.”
Tuesday, Dec. 11, will see the return of the three season two fan-favorites. Mann will sing his new song “Roads” while Simms will offer her new song “Wild Child” and RaeLynn will perform her own new song in “Boyfriend.” In addition, the top four artists from the current cycle will be paired to perform duets.
Since appearing on the show, Mann has released his full-length debut album Roads and his Home for Christmas EP. He also performed on NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center. Rocker Simms released a music video for “Wild Child” earlier in November. Petite country crooner RaeLynn has signed a record deal with Republic Nashville.
There are currently six contestants remaining on The Voice, as the show heads towards its season finale on December 18.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
