NBC’S EMMY-NOMINATED SERIES ‘The Voice’ UNVEILS THE ARTISTS REPRESNETING TEAM CHRISTINA, TEAM CEELO, TEAM ADAM AND TEAM BLAKE WHO WILL COMPETE IN THE BATTLE ROUNDS BEGINNING MONDAY, OCTOBER 8

 

 

NEW THIS SEASON, COACHES WILL BE ABLE TO STEAL MEMBERS FROM OTHER TEAMS AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED IN THE BATTLE ROUNDS

 

 

 

Coaches and Their Advisers Billie Joe Armstrong, Rob Thomas, Mary J. Blige and Michael Buble Prep the Teams for Battle

 

 

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – October 3, 2012 – Tonight on NBC’s “The Voice” the blind auditions came to a close and coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton each filled up their teams of 16 artists for season three. On Tuesday, October 2 (8-9 p.m. ET), a special “Best of the Blind Auditions” airs featuring never before seen footage of the coaches and each team.

 

Beginning Monday, October 8 (8-10 p.m. ET), the artists prepare for their chance to move forward in the competition. They will receive their battle pairing, valuable advice and song selection from their coach and respective team advisor.

 

The battle rounds will whittle down the 64 artists to the top 40. During the battle rounds, coaches pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, coaches must then choose between their two artists to determine who will continue on in the competition.

 

A new twist to the format this season will allow each coach to be able to steal two artists from any other coaches’ team once they have been eliminated from that respective coach’s line-up. At the end of the battle rounds, each coach will have 10 members remaining on their team, eight original members and two stolen from other teams as they head into the knockout rounds and are one step closer to winning the competition.

 

The coaches’ mentors and teams are listed below. More information on the team members can be found at http://www.nbc.com/TheVoice/.

"The Voice" is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named “The Voice” – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

 

The Voice” is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.

    8 October is the date that the ratings will go down down down. The auditions are always the big sell for The Voice. It fails after that. I think it will hurt NBC big time and they will fall back to 4th place.
