The Voice went live on Tuesday night with the results of Monday’s Top 17 performances. Artists appeared remotely from their homes, with their families there to back them up. At the end of the night, eight artists were eliminated.
The artist with the most votes from each team automatically moved on to the Top 9, while the coaches got to choose one artist to save. Then one artist from each team had the chance to compete for a Wildcard Instant Save vote.
You may have noticed lower video quality among some of the artists during the show. That’s because The Voice set itself apart from American Idol‘s at-home shows by airing live results as well as a live vote. It’s definitely a trade-off.
