VIDEO: The Top 6 Perform on Last Night's THE VOICE on NBC
The top six artists performed live in front of coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton for America’s vote last night on NBC's THE VOICE. Below, check out performances by Cassadee Pope: "I'm with You", Nicholas David: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", Melanie Martinez: "The Show", and Amanda Brown: "Here I Go Again".
"The Voice" returned with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show's third season. Celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton return along with Carson Daly as host and Christina Milian as Social Media Correspondent.
The show’s innovative format features four stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, then the battle round, the brand new knockouts and finally, the live performance shows.
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don't get to see them -- thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by the artist’s voice, he/she pushes a button to select the artist for his/her team. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so that he/she can face the artist he/she has selected. If more than one coach pushes their button, the power then shifts to the artist to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes their button, the artist is eliminated from the competition.
