UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - May 15, 2014 - NBC's Emmy Award-winning music competition series "The Voice" will feature a star-studded lineup of Coldplay, OneRepublic, Tim McGraw and Ed Sheeran for its Tuesday, May 20 season finale.

On the Monday, May 19 telecast, the final three artists representing Team Adam, Team Blake and Team Usher will perform two songs - one chosen by America via an online poll and the other determined by their respective coach. With everything on the line, the artists are performing for America's vote to be named "The Voice."

Also on the Monday show, there will be performances by all four coaches.

Coldplay, led by the show's season six key advisor Chris Martin, will make its "Voice" debut the day after its latest album, "Ghost Stories" (Parlophone/Atlantic Records), is released. "Ghost Stories" is Coldplay's sixth album.

The award-winning band, which formed in 1997, has sold more than 60 million copies of its five No. 1 albums. Its 2008 release, "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends," was the best-selling album of the year and the disc was the Grammy Award winner for rock album of the year.

OneRepublic released its debut album "Dreaming Out Loud" in 2007. The disc included the smash single "Apologize," which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide. The band's sophomore album, 2009's "Waking Up," produced three singles: "All the Right Moves," "Secrets" and "Good Life." OneRepublic released its third studio album, "Native," in March 2013 where it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The set includes hits "If I Lose Myself," "Feel Again" and "Counting Stars," which reached #1 at Top 40 radio and has sold more than 4.5 million downloads. New single "Love Runs Out" is featured on a repackaged version of the gold-plus selling album "Native," which is available now. In addition to "Love Runs Out," the repack of "Native" includes the Grammy Award-nominated "If I Lose Myself (Alesso vs. OneRepublic Remix)" and fan favorite "Life in Color."

OneRepublic will kick off its Native Summer Tour on May 28 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. Visit www.onerepublic.com for all tour info.

Tim McGraw has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and dominated the charts with 35 #1 singles. He has won three Grammy Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Assn. Awards, 10 American Music Awards, three People's Choice Awards and numerous other honors. An accomplished actor, McGraw's film credits include "Country Strong," the Academy Award-nominated "The Blind Side," "Friday Night Lights" and the upcoming "Tomorrowland." His latest single, "Meanwhile Back at Mama's" (featuring Faith Hill), comes from his next Big Machine Records release "Sundown Heaven Town," due Sept. 16. McGraw recently kicked off the "Sundown Heaven Town" 2014 tour, bringing his "characteristically high-octane" (Billboard) show to 30 cities over the summer.

Masterfully blending soulful vocals with organic folk introspection and irresistible hip-hop hooks, British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is already a genuine global phenomenon at only 23 years old. On June 23, the three-time Grammy-nominated artist will be releasing "x" (pronounced "multiply"), the much-anticipated follow-up to his breakout debut "+".

Preceded by the exhilarating lead single "Sing," "x" finds Sheeran collaborating with a celebrated group of producers that includes multiple Grammy winners Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams and Jeff Bhasker, Grammy nominee Benny Blanco, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, and Brit Award nominee and "+" collaborator Jake Gosling. Sheeran will embark on his first ever headlining arena tour of North America, kicking off Seattle's WaMu Theater on August 21. Additionally, the British singer-songwriter has contributed a brand new song "All Of The Stars" to the forthcoming soundtrack "The Fault In Our Stars - Music From The Motion Picture"(out May 19).

Since its release, "+" has enjoyed multiplatinum, platinum, and gold sales in nine countries around the world, including the U.S. where Sheeran's international smash "The A-Team" has also been certified double platinum and received a prestigious song of the year Grammy nomination. Sheeran closed out 2013 with a trio of sold-out headlining shows at Madison Square Garden. For additional news and information, please see www.edsheeran.com.
