NBC’S EMMY-WINNING SERIES ‘The Voice’ COMPLETES BLIND AUDITIONS AS COACHES READY THEIR 48 ARTISTS FOR BATTLE ROUNDS

Battle Rounds Begin with Previously Named Advisers Cher, Ryan Tedder, Ed Sheeran and Miguel

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Oct. 8, 2013 — NBC’s “The Voice” coaches have each selected their 12-member teams that will advance to the “battle rounds” phase of the competition.  Beginning Monday, Oct. 14 (8-10 p.m. ET), the coaches and celebrity advisers will work with their respective teams of performers, developing skill sets, offering advice and encouragement, and sharing secrets about their own personal success to help them move forward in the competition.

During the “battle rounds,” each coach will pair two of their own team members against one another, each asked to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal battle, the coach must pick which of his/her singers will advance to the knockout round, while the losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals available during the battle rounds.

Through the first two weeks of the season, “The Voice” has averaged a 4.7 rating, 13 share and 14.5 million viewers overall on Mondays and Tuesday, for a 7% increase over its first two weeks last year in 18-49 and a 13% gain in total viewers. “The Voice” has led NBC to decisive 18-49 wins among the Big 4 networks on both Mondays and Tuesdays so far this season, helping NBC win the opening two nights of the season in 18-49 for the first time since 1988.

Below is a breakdown of adviser and team pairings:

Team Adam (@adamlevine): Ryan Tedder (@onerepublic)

Team Blake (@blakeshelton): Cher (@cher)

Team CeeLo (@ceelogreen): Miguel (@MiguelUnlimited)

Team Christina (@xtina): Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran)
