The competition on this season of “The Voice” is already heating up- not between the competitors, but between the coaches.
Just five episodes into the third season, the competition has become fierce between judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as they go head to head to choose members for their teams. It seems that “Team Adam” is winning the battle with the most members between the two coaches. Levine’s team has a total of 11 members, while Shelton has only 7 members on his team.  The other judges featured on the show are Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green. “Team Xtina” has 10 members and “Team Cee Lo” ties “Team Adam” with a total of 11 members.

The season began with blind auditions, during which the coaches based their decisions on a contestant’s voice rather than his or her looks. The coaches’ signature rotating chairs prohibit them from looking at the contestants during the audition. If a coach is impressed by what he or she hears, he or she pushes a button to select that artist for their team. At this point, the chair will spin so that the coach can face the artist he or she selected.

Last week’s episode of  “The Voice” started strong. Each coach added two singers to his or her team. The final blind auditions will take place during the two episodes airing this week.

After the blind auditions, when all team members have been selected, the battle is on with the live performances. The coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their singers’ voices, giving advice and sharing secrets of their success. During the battle rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of the studio audience. After the face off, the coach of that team must choose which of his or her members will advance to the next round.

“The Voice” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
