The Voice season 15 Knockouts continue tonight with coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly as host
Coaches have paired up the remaining 32 team members who will each perform songs of their own choosing. The coach chooses the winner, who advances to the Live Playoffs. The loser is eliminated OR can be stolen by a fellow coach. As far as the other coaches are concerned: Adam has used his Steal and his Save, Kelly and Blake have a Save remaining, and Jennifer still has a Steal. There are 12 more performances to go. Nine of those singers will advance to next week’s Playoffs.
