Hoo boy. Look who is set to be The Voice key advisor for the Knockout Rounds. None other than Mariah Carey. Back in 2013, her stint as an American Idol judge was nothing short of disastrous. And ever since, Mariah has missed few opportunities to take jabs at the show. So this should be fun. but probably not.
The Knockout Rounds begin Monday, Oct. 29.
The Voice Battle Rounds conclude tonight, with the help of top recording artists to offer their knowledge and skills as advisors. Kelly Clarkson teams up with Thomas Rhett; Jennifer Hudson with Halsey; Adam Levine with CeeLo Green; and Blake Shelton with Keith Urban.
In the next phase of the competition, the Knockout Rounds, the remaining 32 artists will be paired against a teammate once more, but this time they will select their own songs to perform individually while their competitor watches and waits. They are vying for their coach’s confidence and decision to take them to the Live Playoffs, and a chance to earn a spot in the Live Finals.
As the Knockout Advisor, Mariah Carey will be on hand to work with all of the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge. But the coaches alone will choose the winner, and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach. In addition to their one steal, each coach has the opportunity to attempt to save an artist they just eliminated during Knockouts. However, if another coach presses his/her steal button, the artist can then decide whether to go to a new team or return to their former coach. Each coach has one steal and one save available during Knockouts.
