'The Voice' Season 6 (2014): What Happens Next?
Last week on "The Voice" Season 6 (2014), viewers witnessed newly introduced The Battles, Round 2 which has replaced the Knockout Round. In this round, two artists from each team are paired with each other and are provided a list of songs from their coach. Artists perform on a song chosen by them to move to the next level. The winning artist will automatically qualify for the next round while the losing artist is either eliminated or stolen by another coach. Unlike previous round, the coaches are assisted by one common advisor. Coldplay's frontrunner Chris Martin has joined this season as the common mentor to all the teams.
On "The Voice" Season 6 (2014) The Battles Round 2 Week 1 10 set of artists performed, out of which 13 artists were selected for the next level of the show. This week the remaining artists will perform in pairs. While all the three coaches- Shakira, Usher and Adam Levine- have made their steals for this round, Blake Shelton is yet to avail the benefits of the special feature.
Furthermore, Mjsbigblog.com noted that this season will see another format change wherein the voting rounds will not begin until top 12 are selected, unlike previous seasons.
Citing TV Line's Michael Slezak's tweets on Twitter, the Web site reported that there is a twist in round including Live Playoffs. Based on the tweets, the Web site inferred that viewers' involvement will be delayed to final few episodes unlike previous season.
