The Voice is going live this week not once, not even twice, but three times. And this time you’re the judge! That’s right, the voting starts this week and by Thursday, the Top 20 will become the Top 12.

Tonight two coaches’ teams will start the playoffs and then on Wednesday, two more teams will take the stage live. And then on Thursday, we’ll learn who America voted into the Top 12. America gets to pick two acts from each team and then the coaches choose who will fill the final spot on their team of three.

During the pivotal week of “Playoffs,” each coach will have five artists on their respective teams, who will perform over the live shows during a three-night event on Monday, November 5 (8-10 p.m. ET) and Wednesday, November 7 (8-10 p.m. ET) — culminating with a Results show on Thursday, November 8 (8-9 p.m. ET) that will reveal “The Voice’s” Top 12 artists.

After viewing this trial to see if they have what it takes, America then will choose two artists to be saved for each coach’s team — and the coach will be allowed to choose one final singer to round out each team of three artists – all to be revealed on the Playoff Results show on Thursday, November 8 (8-9 p.m. ET). The four coaches and their teams will move on to regular live shows during the remaining competition of “The Voice.” — NBC
