Tonight, the results for the Semi-Final performances of “The Voice” will air on NBC. Now that the shows are live and fans are weighing in on who advances, Instant Save voting has come into play.
How does it work?
During tonight’s show, an announcement will be made that Instant Save voting is open. If you’re on the East Coast, simply use “The Voice” official app or this online link, and you will have the opportunity to save one contestant. That contestant will then advance to the next and final round.
Those on the West Coast or in any other time zone need to go to the show’s Twitter to find out when the Instant Save is at play (since they won’t be able to watch the show live for the announcement). Unlike previous years, you cannot vote for your Instant Save by Tweeting. You will still need to go to the app or use the online link to keep your favorite artist around.
