Before the season 23 premiere of The Voice on Monday night, the Grammy-winning entertainer sat down with Today stars Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly – Carson also hosts The Voice.
Savannah, 51, asked Chance, 29, about the “climate control” settings on The Voice chairs since she “heard” about them.
“I heard something about the climate control on the chairs…and even Carson, who never gets to sit in those chairs.
“Tell us about the secret of the chairs,” she told Chance.
Taking credit for exposing the chair controls, Chance owned up to being the “leak” who “dropped the info.”
“Basically…the famous red-spinning chairs on the show, a lot of people don’t know this, there is a heating setting underneath it to get yourself warm and a cool setting too,” Chance explained.
Savannah was expressing her enthusiasm to learn about the magic of the seats before her 49-year-old co-host interrupted her to reveal his theory behind the chairs.
“I think that’s because of Blake Shelton; he is so old now [so] he needs temperature control,” Blake joked.

The 46-year-old country star has been a coach on The Voice since 2011.
Blake recently announced that he would no longer be a coach on the show after this upcoming season.
REASON FOR LEAVING
He recently revealed the real reason he’s stepping away from the show in an interview.
During an appearance on Today, he confessed that he had contemplated leaving the show for a few years.
The Oklahoma native noted, however, that he was concerned about leaving “everybody in a bind,” so he stayed.
“I think I was close to calling it a day right when Covid hit,” he told host Carson Daly, 49, on the show.
“And then, because of Covid, I didn’t want to walk away from the show and leave everybody in a bind.
“I mean, this show changed my life. I’ll stay here until the world kind of gets back to normal again.”
Blake also opened up to Carson about how the show changed his life.
He shared: “I met my wife [Gwen Stefani] on this show.”
“It’s changed my life in every way it possibly can, from a personal standpoint.”
While Blake is no stranger to The Voice’s judging table, they are joined by newcomers Chance and Niall Horan, 29.
Chance told NBC Insider: “I wanted to be a Coach on The Voice because I like giving platforms to young artists — especially people who are already seasoned in their trade and know what they’re doing but just need the right spotlight.
“I wanted to be a part of the process.
“I think my biggest competition amongst the coaches is probably Kelly ’cause she’s a seasoned vet.
“She’s won a bunch of times and people just gravitate towards her ‘cause they know she’s been in a competition. She’s mega-famous.”
Similar to Chance, Niall thinks Kelly is his biggest competition as well.
The One Direction alum commented: “My biggest competition this year is definitely Kelly.
“We have very similar tastes in music and the same kind of taste in voices.
“Yeah, I think she’s going to be a massive threat to me. But you never know, I could win the thing.”
