Season 6 of the Voice USA premiered on NBC on February 24, 2014 and ended on May 20, 2014. Carson Daly returned as the host with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton reuniting with season 4 coaches Usher and Shakira. Cee Lo Green had left the show after season 5 while Christina Aguilera took another hiatus from the show.
This season is the last for Shakira, who announced on May 13, 2014 that she is not returning to the show.This season was won by 38-year-old soul singer Josh Kaufman.
This season, won by Usher, is the first not won by either Adam Levine or Blake Shelton.
Parts of the show have been changed for this season. There is now a second round of Battles, replacing the Knockout Rounds that took place over the past 3 seasons. Instead of individual advisors like they do in the first part of the Battle rounds, the coaches had one advisor, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, working with them.
