Vocal Masterclass Discussion For The Voice Season 9: The Live PlayOffs

Well, well, well. Isn’t this special?  The Voice has decided to spice things up a little and add a new and exciting twist to the the wild card format.

Here is what I have garnered from The Voice’s Wikipedia Page:

“The Live Playoffs comprises episodes 15, 16, and 17 (the results show). The top 24 artists perform, with two artists from each team advancing based on the viewers’ vote, and each coach completing their respective teams with their own choice. For the first time in the show’s history, the coaches will each be bringing back one eliminated artist from their team from the Battles or Knockouts to perform in the Live Playoffs with the top 20 and will get a chance to move on to the live shows as part of the top 12.”

Yes, you read this correctly. The Voice will rule the airwaves with three nights of performances, the final night consisting of a very intense Results Show.  And, with the inclusion of callbacks for 4 of the singers, a strong element of excitement will prevail during the live Playoffs shows. 

Also appearing on the Results Show will be Judge Gwen Stefani, who will perform her single, “Used To Love You“. 

Get ready for some creative selections because, in the end, this show is all about the artistry. How else are you supposed to market an artist in today’s musical climate?  They have to create a niche more than fill a niche, although the latter is important as well. 

However, this is your chance to make a difference in the lives of these singers. Your votes count and your iTunes downloads and Apple Music streaming numbers are more important than ever. 

This week The Voice airs on Monday, November 9th, Tuesday November 10th at 8:00 PM and Wednesday November 11th at 9:00 PM on NBC.

  1. i am really enjoying jeffery austin (the redheaded singer who only had one chair turn..gwen). i wasn’t impressed at first but last week’s version of adele really got to me, and that has been my favorite thus far. this week’s was good too.

  2. I thought that Tuesday night’s show was better than Monday’s show. I think a lot of that had to do with the contestants on Team Pharrell and Team Blake having more decision in what they wanted to sing.

  4. I also like Jeffrey, but am still a fan of Braiden although didn’t love his performance this week as much as last week, love Jordan, and Amy. Like a few of the others too but can’t remember their names at the moment. Blake’s young male country singer was quite a surprise. I can see the voting audience liking him a lot.

  5. I have been such a delinquent regarding The Voice. I never seem to be home long enough. I must catch the videos online and treat myself. I see Jeffrey and Braiden are still popular. Thanks for your comments everyone. Always appreciated!!!
