"The Voice" Season 11 (USA) 2016 Live Playoffs episode will kick off in a few hours. The top 20 contestants who survived the Knockouts will hit the stage on Monday night with the hope of progressing to the next round.

The competition will go live for the first time this season, which means the audience will choose the winners of the Playoffs and not the coaches. All the top 20 singers will perform tonight and the results will be declared towards the end of the episode, as Tuesday will be overshadowed by the US presidential elections.
