Tonight begins the live playoffs for season 12 of The Voice, with the top 20 performers competing for the top 12 spots. According to NBC, the way voting for tonight and tomorrow’s show will work is this:
Through innovative real-time voting on “The Voice” Official App and Twitter, fans will be able to advance two artists per team into the Top 12, and results will be revealed on the same night. During this exciting and music-filled night, two coaches will then immediately choose the final artist from their teams to save, sending the other artists home.
Team Blake and Team Alicia will perform Monday, April 17th, while Team Adam and Team Gwen will perform on the 18th.
For the real-time voting, there are two different ways to vote available. Check out the different ways to cast your votes and how to execute each one below.
