Apparently, new rules. (At least, these weren't the rules I thought were being followed this season.)

Then, the Top 12 artists will be determined as two artists from each team will be sent home on “The Voice” Live Playoff Results Show, Thursday, November 8 (8-9 p.m. ET). In the first elimination show of the season, the two artists who receive the most viewer votes on each team from the previous nights’ Live Playoffs, will be saved and guaranteed a spot in the Monday, November 12 Live Show. Meanwhile, each coach is tasked with the difficult decision of choosing one more artist from the remaining three to move forward in the competition and perform in the next week’s Live Show, thereby eliminating the other artists.

From the press release at:

I thought that they weren't ensuring that some singers from each team were guaranteed to get through?

especially since Blake scored big at the CMA awards. Really big. And Xtina is performing at the American Music Awards. The Voice is at least helping the mentors if it isn't helping the wannabes. :lol:

Matry, there is an online nbc feed somewhere because people use it to watch skating when the local market preempts.

My cable is out again. :angryfire I'll eventually see the show. If anyone wants to give a review, I'd be thrilled. You can describe the divas as 'catfight noise' and 'screeching nails on chalkboards'. :D

Jocelyn Rivera team Adam first singing some pop song. She has piink streaks in her hair. Blake liked it and thought she looked like a star. Xtina loves that she worked the stage (she took notes). CeeLo looking like a 70s reject with a curly afro and puffy white satin pirate shirt, also liked her. Adam's proud. I love that all the mentors are helpful to the singers and don't bash them. Listen up Simon, people are over the snipping.

Terry McDermot Scottish rocker up next. Singing Don't Stop Believing. Blake thinks he can make it current. If I was going to give him a classic rock song, I'd have picked something from Yes or Jethro Tull. Xtina says he's easy to listen to, Ceelo with a bling mirror admiring himself says he was effortless, Blake says he's making classic rock cool again. And says when God was passing out the ability to rock, he gave Terry a little bit more. I think Blake's cup is already half empty. :lol:

Up next is Melanie Martinez aka skunkhair number 1 doing Ray Charles Hit the Road Jack. This could be interesting with her jazzy voice or it could be just weird. She has some breath contol issues and swallows some of the words.
Blake: he's a fan; favorite thing is that she's not that interested in fitting in
Xtina: started a little pitchy due to nerves, she's trying to be nice, but she's really not impressed
Adam: she did what they discussed in rehersal and he's proud.

I do think she could have a successful Indie career.

You go Cowardly Lion, hit that Wizard and get you that sass. If by sass, you mean channeling Lolita.

Xtina was two seconds from a bless your heart moment. It felt like you were in the Disney version of a speakeasy.
