The Voice USA 2017 (Season 12) will enter the next round of the competition – The Battles – with the Blind Auditions having completed last week. The Battle Round 1 will kick off tonight with six pairs expected to perform with the hope of progressing to the next stage of the competition.
Each of the coaches -- Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton -- have 12 contestants each in their respective teams, taking the total number of participants to 48. However, each team will end up with eight contestants, consisting of six from the original team and two steals, after the Battle Round. The pairings in The Battles will be done within each team, which means coaches have to let go half of them.
John Legend, DJ Khaled, Luke Bryan and Celine Dion will join the show as mentors for The Battles.
The Voice USA 2017 Season 12 Battle Round 1 will be aired on Monday at 8 pm EST / 10 ET/PT / 06:30 am IST (Tuesday) on NBC. It can be live-streamed on NBC's official website but it is restricted to some areas and requires subscription.
