Want to place bets on which song benefits from the exposure? Heh.

Read the press release below.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – November 5, 2012 — In a special performance, “The Voice” Coach Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5, will debut their newest single “Daylight” on the NBC’s “The Voice” Live Playoffs Results Show Thursday, November 8 (8-9 p.m. ET). In addition, reigning Season Two champ Jermaine Paul returns to “The Voice” for a special performance of his debut single “I Believe in This Life.”

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.

“The Voice” features the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s third season. Celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton return along with Carson Daly as host and Christina Milian as Social Media Correspondent.

In the final live performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team will compete each week against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists and the two artists with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week, no matter what team they are on. In the end, one will be named “The Voice” and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

“The Voice” is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.

    I had to literally think about who Jermaine Paul was LOL. And I watched every episode of the Voice season 2….

    Want to place bets on which song benefits from the exposure? Heh.

    I’m gonna go with the Season 1 winner(in his words), Adam Levine(aka Maroon 5).

    On the bright side, Jermaine avoided being bundled with other contestants from his season on his big return. Yes, M5 will totally overshadow his performance.

    One Direction from X factor UK will be performing on the X factor US… even though I am not a fan, but I think this  is inspiring for the contestants..

    The American Idol exposure has the advantage of being beneficial for the contestants AND the judges…

    Is 1D performing on XF the same night that Jermaine Paul & M5 are performing on The Voice?

    If so, if XF can’t win the ratings war over The Voice on that night, then they never will

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I watched The Voice last year and honestly couldn’t remember Jermaine. Couldn’t they have had Jermaine perform a couple of songs without anyone else?

  • Klaine

    Of course voice again going on Thurs vs The XF. Simon & NBC..what’s up. Simon should move AGT to ABC. I believe in this life? Hope its not the corny ballad it sounds like. When I read the headline, I kept thinking who the hell is Jermaine Paul? Never heard of him…oops

    Jermaine hasn’t a fanbase and was one of the weakest vocalists last year. How he won is a mistery. Plus, he’s 100% unmarketable. I know they haven’t promoted at all their winners and I think it’s terrible but in Jermaine’s i can almost understand it. If I were in their situation I wouldn’t try too much either.

    This will sound (and is) ageist, but The Voice winners are too old. I know there are exceptions, and Susan Boyle was very successful right after the show, but they’re the exception. If The Voice wants the winner to at least have a shot, they should make sure the winner is young enough to be marketable. The music industry is youth obsessed and the epitome of ageism.

    Eh, I would rather see Juliet Simms back.

    In years to come, Jermaine Paul’s album launch will be what Javier Colon and Melanie Amaro look at when they’re feeling depressed and need some perspective on how it could have been worse for them.

    With this time-table and a pseudo-coronation song title, I can’t believe there’ll be a serious attempt to push JP’s song to radio. A December 18 album release also limits Christmas purchases to last-minute shoppers who don’t have to ship. Music writers and reviewers are on vacation or working on their Top 10 of the Year lists while getting sloshed on eggnog.

    They made everything to make Lyndsey or JulieT or anyone but Jermaine win, but it didn’t work out. This year, i think there isn’t one single R&B BBG singer in the live shows. They got rid of all. LOL

    I think it will come down to Cassadee. She can’t sing well live, but with autotune she can be a huge popstar, like katy Perry. They took advantage of the fact that she has already a big fanbase that will at least take her far.

  • OffLeash

    Cassadee could have a shot at success if she wins, I agree. Avery was the best bet IMO, but he blew his last performance. He would’ve been very popular had he made the live shows IMO, but he’ll be back next season, unless Cee Lo’s already signed him for himself lol.

    The Voice audience is also probably different this year, with more viewers (I think) and a good demo.

    Thank God, he’s still alive!
