Blake and the Gang Crank Up for The Voice

Watch the Judges Kick Off Season Eight in Rock 'n' Roll Style

The eighth season of The Voice kicks off Monday night (Feb. 23), reshuffling the judges’ bench to include veterans Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera, and hopefully reigniting some old rivalries.

But before a single contestant hits the stage or a swivel chair begins to turn, the superstar judges will be showing their wide-eyed wannabes how it’s done.

The show’s opening number, a cover of rocker Lenny Kravitz’s fist-pumping 1993 anthem “Are You Gonna Go My Way” was revealed Wednesday (Feb. 18) on EW.com.

Shelton takes the song’s first few lines, while buddy/comedic foil Levine gets down to business behind the drum kit. Williams and Aguilera take center stage, trading verses and working the crowd.

In fact, Williams and Aguilera do most of the moving and hyping, and Levine is kind of stuck where he is, so that just leaves Shelton, who stays planted behind his microphone. Even the guitar player gets in on the fun!

Any ideas on what Shelton would tell one of his team members if that happened to them?

The new season of The Voice begins Feb. 23 and airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
