SAN DIEGO, October 14, 2013 – All four teams on “The Voice” have their 12 singers chosen for the competition. Starting tonight over the next two weeks, that group of 48 will be cut in half to 24 in the battle rounds.
There will be four televised battle rounds on Mondays from 8 to 10 p.m. and Tuesday from 9 to 10 p.m. for the next two weeks. Communities will follow all the battle rounds with live online chats beginning tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You don’t get a vote yet, but at least you get a say in our discussion.
Coaches Blake Shelton, Ceelo Green, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera will work with their singers along with a celebrity mentor, assigning each a song and matching them with another member of the team to perform the song together in front of a studio audience.
Frequently coaches seem to put two of their more talented singers on stage together. It can happen when the singers are so similar the coach would rather keep just the strongest singer in that genre; sometimes it’s because one has significant stage presence over another in addition to vocal talent.
Thankfully for fans and the singers, the “steal” is back in Season 5. The losing performer in a battle round becomes available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals available during the battle rounds.
Who are you looking forward to seeing? Which team is the strongest this year? Who is ready to become The Voice? We want to hear from the people that count: the fans.
“The Voice: The Battle Rounds” airs Monday, October 14 at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time on the NBC Television Network.
