Season 15 of The Voice enters its knockout rounds tonight, on October 29, 2018. This generally means that 32 contestants will be paired up to compete against each other, in hopes of making it through to the live playoffs. A key adviser steps in to help mentor the contestants, along with their coaches, but only the coaches can choose who moves on in the competition, who gets eliminated, and who gets saved as a stolen contestant. The show airs on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT, on the NBC network. For those who do not have a cable subscription, you may be looking for alternative ways to watch the show. Read on below for the rundown on how to watch the knockouts online, who the competing contestants are, the key adviser and more.

If you can’t watch The Voice live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
Mariah Carey has joined the cast of The Voice, coming aboard as the key adviser for the knockout rounds. During the battle rounds, the contestants received help from guest mentors, so this is the next step. In an interview on Today, Carey dished on her experience on The Voice, stating that, “The sessions with the contestants, some of them have completely blown me away. It’s a very, it’s a humbling experience to be around all of the raw talent, and it’s great because — I’m not saying you get jaded being in the industry or doing your own music and really being caught up in your own world, but maybe a little bit. And it’s nice to see other people and what they’re doing and what they’re working with and what they’re bringing to the table in terms of their contributions as artists. I really enjoyed it.”
According to Bustle, Carey will be dropping her 15th album next month, so being on The Voice is definitely a good way to drum up some publicity, right? Carey will drop her album “Caution” on November 16, 2018. She also revealed that she will be going on tour next year for her “The Caution World Tour”.
