SAN DIEGO, October 13, 2013 – Now that all four teams of 12 competitors are set on “The Voice,” NBC’s reality TV hit, the battle is on.
Battle rounds begin on Monday, October 14. 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 Monday night at 8 p.m. ET.
Coaches Blake Shelton, Ceelo Green, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera will dedicate themselves to developing their team members. They will offer them advice on their technique and performance and share their own secrets of personal success. Each will also invite a celebrity mentor along to help advise the competitors.
Blake Shelton will work with Cher; Ceelo Green brings in Miguel; Christina Aguilera will work with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, and Adam Levine teams with Ryan Tedder of One Republic.
During the show’s battle rounds, the coaches match two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.
After the vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his or her singers will advance to the next round of competition. 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.
At the end of the battles, the top members of each coach’s roster remain and proceed to the knockout rounds, which get the winners on to the live shows where fans take over and make the decision who stays and who goes.
Thanks to some keen observation of the previews and promos airing on NBC and YouTube plus what must be a few leaks, the battle pairings are largely known. This is how they are reported via TVLine.com and repeated by Yahoo News:
