THE KNOCKOUTS PREMIERE
Monday & Tuesday at 8/7c on NBC
THE COACHES ENLIST KEY ADVISER TAYLOR SWIFT TO PREPARE THEIR ARTISTS FOR THE KNOCKOUT ROUNDS ON THE VOICE.
The “knockout rounds” continue with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams’ strongest team members remaining from the battle rounds.
The artists will be paired against a teammate once more, but this time they will select their own songs to perform individually, while their direct competitor watches and waits. Superstar Taylor Swift will serve as a key adviser and be on hand to work with all of the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge. The coaches alone will choose the winner to move on to the live shows and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach.
Each coach has one steal available during the Knockout Rounds. Carson Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") hosts.
At the end of the battles, only the strongest members of each coach’s roster remain and proceed to the Knockout Rounds. Here, the artists will be paired against a teammate once more, but this time they will select their own songs to perform individually, while their direct competitor watches and waits. They are vying for their coach’s confidence and decision to take them to the Live Shows. One superstar, universal advisor will be on hand to work with all of the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge. But the coaches alone will choose the winner and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has one steal available during the Knockout Rounds.
In the Live Playoff Rounds, the top 20 artists will compete to secure a spot in the Live Shows. Artists will perform live and America will vote to save their two favorite artists from each team. The coaches will then save one remaining artist to complete their roster. The remaining contestants will move on to the final phase of the competition, the Live Shows.
In the final live performance phase of the competition, the top 12 artists will compete each week against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists. Three artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for the "Instant Save." These artists will each perform a new song that represents why they should earn the save. Then, America will have the opportunity to save their favorite performer by tweeting out #VoiceSave along with the artist’s name. The two singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week. In the end, one will be named "The Voice" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
“The Voice” is a presentation of United Artists Media Group (an MGM company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Marc Jansen and Lee Metzger.
