What can we expect from The Voice Finale this year? Season 18 has offered viewers gifted singers, entertaining coaches and dazzling stage performances. When the pandemic hit, the show had to make radical changes to keep on the air. The Voice took its lead from American Idol… broadcasting remotely from locations across the nation. The Live Playoffs kicked off with an inspiring rendition of “Shower the People” by mega-mentor James Taylor. Joined by the Top 20, the song paid tribute to all the workers on the front lines.
The winner of the 4-Way-Knockout was then announced, narrowing the field to the Top 17. Contestants set up virtual stages in their homes… and succeeded in drawing the audience into their heartfelt performances. Coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkston, John Legend and Nick Jonas mentored their teams remotely from their homes in Oklahoma, Montana and California respectively.
After America’s votes, the coaches’ Saves and the Wild Card Instant Save, the Top 9 advanced to the Semifinals. “Dedication Week” was the theme as the nine artists performed remotely, getting feedback live from their coaches. Viewers across America voted for the top four finalists, one from each team. For the first time in The Voice history, the last five contestants performed for America’s votes in a 5-Way Instant Save, adding a fifth contestant to the Finale.
