ON tonight’s show THE VOICE returns with a whole new episode. The “knockout rounds” continue with coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton’s 10 strongest team members remaining from the battle rounds.
During the Knockout Rounds, the battle winners and coach steals will have to prove themselves worthy to get to the live Playoffs. They will compete head-to-head in a sudden death vocal matchup. At the start of the Knockouts, each coach had 10 artists left — eight battle winners and two steals.
The artists will have no clue who they are up against until they are about to perform. Coaches will line their teams up on the stage and call out two artists to go head-to-head immediately. This time the competitors will pick their own song, one which they feel symbolizes who they are as an artist. Each singer will then perform for all of the coaches, while their opposing teammate watches from a stool in the ring. The coach then decides who earns the live show spot and the other artist is eliminated.
After viewing this trial to see if they have what it takes, America then will choose two artists to be saved for each coach’s team — and the coach will be allowed to choose one final singer to round out each team of three artists.
On last night’s show the first of the knockout rounds began as all 10 of Team Adam and Team CeeLo’s singers performed. Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green cut their teams in half. On tonight’s show Christina and Blake pair their artists in instant eliminations, cutting their teams in half in a single night.
Tonight’s Part 2 of the Knockout Round is going to be and exciting one, which you won’t want to miss. So be sure to tune in for our live coverage of NBC’s The Voice – tonight at 8PM EST!
