Josh Sanders, L. Rodgers, Asher HaVon

The Voice went live on Monday night with performances by the Top 12 artists—Asher HaVon, Bryan Olesen, Josh Sanders, Karen Waldrup, L. Rodgers, Maddi Jane, Madison Curbelo, Nadège, Nathan Chester, Serenity Arce, Tae Lewis, and Zoe Levert—voted on for the first time by America rather than coaches Reba McEntire, John Legend, Chance the Rapper, and Dan + Shay.

Then after the votes are tallied, on Tuesday night host Carson Daly will reveal the results. Three artists will go home, no matter what team they’re on, and next week the Top 9 will perform.
