The Voice kicked off its first night of “live playoffs” tonight (November 10th) at NBCUniversal Studios in Universal City, Calif.
The show began with a mind-blowing performance of “Animals” by Maroon 5. After Maroon 5’s performance, Team Adam’s Chris Jamison, Damien, Matt McAndrew, Mia Pfirrman, and Taylor Phelan, and Team Blake’s Craig Wayne Boyd, James David Carter, Jessie Pitts, Reagan James, and Taylor Brashears, performed songs of their choice LIVE for the first time in front of America.
In the Live Playoff Rounds, the top 20 artists compete to secure a spot in the Live Shows. Artists perform live and America vote to save their two favorite artists from each team. The coaches will then save one remaining artist to complete their roster. The remaining contestants will move on to the final phase of the competition, the Live Shows.
The Live Playoff Rounds continue tomorrow, November 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC. Team Pharrell and Team Gwen‘s contestants take the stage and Pharrell will perform his new track “Hunter.”
