Season 21 of “The Voice” goes live for the US vote
(NBC) – ‘The Voice’ enters live competition phase tonight – 20 artists all sing for a chance to make it to the top 13 next week – but need US vote to do so .
Singing live on voice tonight could be intimidating for anyone, let alone a 14-year-old.
âI’m very confident, I’m nervous, but I’m excited,â said Hailey Mia. “But I’m also terrified.”
Mia of Team Kelly is one of the youngest contestants on the show, while Wendy Moten of Team Blake is one of its âmore seasonedâ contestants.
“You know I’m 56, I love people to know because it’s like I’m just starting to get awesome now!” Moten said.
Great could apply to all artists who make the playoff round tonight.
âThere are so many talented artists this season, the season is crazy,â said Samuel Harness.
âComing into lives, I still can’t believe I’m even saying that,â Joshua Vacanti said.
The excitement is palpable for the artists.
âYou can’t hear it, but I can hear it – my heart is pounding,â Paris Willingham said.
But they will try not to be overwhelmed by the moment.
âI feel like I was born for stuff like that,â said Peedy Chavis.
âThere really isn’t room for the nerves,â Katie Rae said. âThat’s what I’m trying to tell myself.
“I am ready for the change”, Libianca. âI am up to the challenge. I’m ready for everything.
At this point the singers just had to impress their coaches, but from now on America decides who takes the next step.
âI want this,â Gymani said. “So I’ll take it any way I want.”
âI’m ready anyway, it was an amazing experience for me,â Shadale said. “And I hope I can continue.”
Tonight’s performances will make the difference.
âI’m really looking forward to just being able to sing my booty,â said Ryleigh Plank.
âI’ve never known the gravity of the vocal scene in lives and I’m excited it’s going to be awesome,â said Lana Scott.
This is what everyone is counting on.
“The Voice” airs tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. on KGET TV-17.

About “The voice”
Multi-platinum global recording artist, Grammy Award winner and talented actress Ariana Grande claims her red chair alongside superstar coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton as they return for Season 21. Carson Daly returns as that host.
The show’s innovative format includes four stages of competition: blind auditions, rounds of bouts, knockouts and live performances.
In blind auditions, coaches’ decisions are based solely on voice and not on appearance. The coaches hear the artists playing but they don’t see them, thanks to the rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed with the artist’s voice, they press a button to select the artist for their team. At this point, the coach’s chair will rotate so that they can face the artist they have chosen. If more than one coach presses the button, then the power passes to the artists to choose which coach they want to work with. If no one presses their button, the artist is eliminated from the competition.
The block is also back this season, which adds another layer of coaching competition in blind auditions. Coach chairs each have an additional set of buttons with the names of the other three coaches, which prevents a coach from adding a new artist to their team. Coaches can only use their lock buttons on one performer during the entire first round of the competition. The stuck coach only finds out that he is stuck if he presses his button, and although his chair continues to spin, his lane lights up with “BLOCKED”. If the coach does not press his button, the block is still available for another hearing.
Once the teams are formed, the battle is on. Coaches are dedicated to developing their team of artists, providing advice and sharing the secrets of their success, with the help of their celebrity advisors. The coaches call on heavyweights in the music industry to prepare their artists for the Battle Rounds. This season’s Battle Advisors include Jason Aldean (Team Kelly), Kristin Chenoweth (Team Ariana), Camila Cabello (Team Legend) and Dierks Bentley (Team Blake).
During Battle Rounds, coaches will pit two members of their own team against each other to sing the same song together in front of a fully vaccinated, limited-capacity studio audience. The artists compete for the confidence and decision of their coach to take them to the next round.
After each vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his artists will move on to the next round of the competition. Each coach will have a save and a steal during battle rounds. The losing artist is available to be saved by their own trainer, but with thefts still on the line, the artist could potentially choose to go with a different trainer, resulting in even more difficult decisions for both coaches and artists. . Performers who have won their battle, been saved by their own coach, or been robbed by another coach will qualify for the Knockouts.
For artists who made it to Knockouts, a Mega Mentor superstar will be on hand to work with all of the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge. In the Knockouts, artists will again be paired with a teammate, but this time they will select their own songs to play individually while their direct competitor watches and waits. Coaches will choose the winner, and the unselected artist may be stolen by another coach. The stakes are high as each coach will only have one steal in the Knockouts.
Once the live shows begin, top performers will compete against each other each week in a live broadcast. This time, viewers will vote to save their favorite artists. The artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for Instant Save and will each perform a new song to prove why they should continue in the competition. America will then have the opportunity to save their favorite artist by voting on the official âThe Voiceâ app or NBC.com. Those with the fewest votes will be sent home. In the end, an artist will be named “The Voice” and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
