'The Voice' Season 3 Adds New Contestant-Stealing Format
Looks like there's going to be an even bigger rivalry between Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine on "The Voice" this year. You know what that means: more awkward, rambling trash talk from Christina! It's what makes "The Voice," really.
The show is adding a new element to the battle rounds, in which contestants pair up and sing a duet to be evaluated by their mentors, who then cut one of the performers on the spot. In the past, that eliminated contestant would have just gone home. However, a new element will give the other mentors a chance to "steal" that eliminated contestant and place them on their team.
That should add even more drama to the proceedings. Not only does it give eliminated contestants another chance to make it through to the live shows on another team, but it also gives contestants whose hopes and dreams were just destroyed another glimmer of hope before potentially having their hopes and dreams destroyed a second time.
Hopefully that will help balance out the teams, too, as too often a worthy contestant is sent home in the battle rounds while a weaker opponent makes it through. The contestants will also have to perform in one more "knockout" round, where they will perform solo and face elimination yet again as the mentors cut their 10 remaining contestants down to five.
Let the trash talking commence!
