Tonight on The Voice 2012, we will be treated to a twist new for this season. Eight members of the Top 16 could be singing for the last time as two of them will face instant elimination.

So two artists from Teams Blake and Christina will be instantly sent home tonight, while America’s votes help decide the fate of the six that survived the instant eliminations. That means that after the live performances tonight, Christina and Blake will each have to cut one person from their team.

Then Tuesday night, we’ll again see the artists with the lowest amount of votes singing for the chance to remain on The Voice. Christina and Blake will again cut one person each from their teams, leaving them both with their Top 2 artists.

The following week, the same format will repeat with Teams Adam and Cee Lo.

Be sure to check back tonight for live performance coverage and a full show recap a little later.
