The live round of “The Voice” starts Monday night, and viewers finally have the chance to weigh in on their favorite singers.
Monday’s two-hour episode, which airs 7-9 p.m. MT, will feature performances from the top 17 “Voice” singers — including countertenor John Holiday, who has repeatedly wowed coaches John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton.
“The world needed to hear your voice, and we’re so lucky that you came here,” Legend said during the show’s Battle round.
The voting will determine which performers make it to the top 9. “The Voice” will reveal the results during Tuesday night’s episode.
Here’s a rundown of how to vote:
“The Voice” official app
- The app allows you to vote as you watch live, and is available on iOS and Android, according to Heavy.com. Users must create an NBCUniversal profile to use the app, which is available in the App Store and Google Play.
- Votes on the official app are accepted starting about five minutes after the show begins on Monday nights.
- Viewers can also vote at nbc.com/voicevote. Each account — tied to an email address — allows up to 10 votes.
- You can also vote via a Google Assistant enabled phone or speaker, or the Google Assistant app available on the App Store and Google Play.
- Viewers need to say, “Hey Google, vote for ‘The Voice’,” and the command will activate the Google Assistant, according to Heavy.com.
Each method allows people to vote for a singer up to 10 times. The voting window begins Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. MT and will end at 5 a.m. MT on Dec. 1.
More than winning
Holiday recently told the Deseret News that being on “The Voice” during a pandemic has been about a lot more than winning.
“When I sing, my prayer is that it will help to elevate someone out of a position where they feel like there is no more hope,” he said. “It doesn’t go unnoticed in my mind that there are people out there who are struggling, who are grieving loss of loved ones, loss of work, don’t know where their next check is coming from, where their next meal is coming from.
“Maybe it’s selfish of me, but I hope that in the 10 minutes that people get to see me on TV that I can remind them that it will get better,” Holiday continued. “Even though it’s chaotic right now, it’s gonna get better. I don’t have to win the show if I’ve done that for somebody else. If I can do that, I’ve already won.”
