The Voice 11 Top 20 Reveal How to Real Time Vote (VIDEO) (PHOTOS)

On Monday, for the first time ever, The Voice will mount a grand experiment. Due to the American presidential election results airing across all networks on Tuesday, the show will conduct the Live Playoffs ALL IN ONE NIGHT. That means the performances, voting AND results will all happen within a 2 hour time window. In effect, Monday’s The Voice will begin with 20 contestants, and end with 12.

How will producers pack so much activity into a single episode? The Top 20 explains the procedure in a new promo video posted below. It appears that each team member will perform, afterwhich viewers can vote via twitter and The Voice App. Fans will choose two singers from each team to move on to the finals. While the coaches–Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton–will choose one wildcard from each of their remaining team members.

Don’t worry folks living in the Mountain and Pacific time zones! YOU can vote too! Just follow The Voice on twitter for voting windows and do your thing! I’ve course, west coast fans will be voting WITHOUT HAVING SEEN THE PERFORMANCES. Well, unless you can follow along on a sketchy stream, right? But at 5 pm PST nobody is on their way back from the office, picking up kids from daycare, or getting back home from school. Yeah. The system has flaws, ya’ll. I feel sorry for this crop. What kind of a slap dash will these performances amount to with so little time available to accomplish so much? Crazy.

I suppose NBC took the opportunity to try something new. And, the network likely prefered not to shuffle around the schedule at the beginning of a sweeps month in order to accommodate five The Voice hours. Remember: Normally there would be two nights of live 2 hour performances and a one hour results show across 3 days…
