The Voice Recap 4/6/15- Season 8- The Live Playoffs, Part 1
“The Voice” has finally made it to the first part of the live playoffs. This means that America will finally have a chance at voting and will get to have their say in terms of who stays and who goes. You can keep up with the top twenty on season eight of “The Voice” right here.
We started with the blind auditions and after about two weeks, we went right into the battle rounds. Battles are when two people from the same team go against each other with a song that their coach has chosen for them. But the coaches have help. Each one got a mentor to work with: Team Adam Levine had Ellie Goulding; Team Pharrell Williams has two-time mentor Lionel Richie; Team Christina Aguilera had Nick Jonas and Team Blake Shelton had Meghan Trainor. Each coach was also given two steals so that if someone was not chosen in their battle, the coaches could then steal said person and reshape their teams. It also gave them a chance to get singers that they may not have gotten during the blinds.
Following the blinds, we went into the Knockout Rounds where Nate Ruess of the band FUN was the key adviser. He worked with all the contestants who chose their own songs to sing. The coaches, again teamed up two people but with totally different songs then they had to choose who would be brought to the live rounds. Each coach got one steal so they were able to get back someone they may have let slip through their fingers. When all was said and done, we finally had the top twenty singers, five from each team.
Tonight, the show will go live and it is up to America to decide who will stay and who will go. There is usually the Twitter Insta-save that happens in the last five minutes of the show but so much has happened so far that anything can happen now.
