Chronology

The third season of the American reality talent show The Voice premiered on September 10, 2012 on NBC.[1] NBC officially announced The Voice's renewal on May 13, 2012, during its 2012–13 upfront presentation, with the show returning as a fall series.[2]

For this season, teams increased to 16, up from 12 last season. In addition, during the battle round, opposing coaches have the ability to steal the singer that was sent home by the original coach. If more than one coach hits their button to recruit the singer in question, it is up to the contestant to decide which coach he or she wants to work with. Each coach can save two contestants, which means the battle round will end with ten singers on each team, rather than eight. A new two-night "knockout round" will begin after the battle round, where the coaches will reduce their teams to five.[3] This was followed by a reduction of the teams to three each, with the two most voted for by viewers selected, along with one choice from the judge. After this, the show moved to a format more similar to American Idol or The X Factor, starting the top 12 and the top spots given to the 10, who received the most viewer votes (including iTunes downloads as votes). A series of after shows was also filmed and streamed on NBC's website after each live show this season.

Auditions, coaches, and hosts[edit]

Auditions for were held on July 7 to August 12, 2012 in Memphis, Minneapolis, New York, Dallas and Los Angeles.

All original coaches signed on for season three.

Mary J. Blige, Michael Bublé, Rob Thomas and Billie Joe Armstrong will be joining the show as advisers for Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera's teams respectively during the Battle Rounds segment of the show.[4] Christina, Blake and Cee Lo brought in Ron Fair, Scott Hendricks and Jennifer Hudson respectively to help coach in the episode, Top 10 Perform Live. Cee Lo brought in Bill Withers to coach Nicholas David the following week, and was sick during rehearsals for the subsequent week, so he brought in Pat Monahan, lead singer for Train, to coach all his artists that week, while still choosing his team members' songs and keeping in touch with them on the phone.

Week 1: Live playoffs (November 5, 7, & 8)[edit]

The live playoffs were aired on November 5 and 7, followed by a results show on November 8. Performances were intentionally stripped down compared to previous seasons, so that there is greater focus on the voices of the artists.[13] Special guests included Taylor Kinney from Chicago Fire in the audience.

Week 2 (November 12 & 13)[edit]

The live top 12 performances were aired on November 12, followed by a results show on November 13.

From this point on in the competition, all remaining contestants performed live each week, and only the public's vote determined which contestants advanced in the competition. Unlike previous seasons, rather than each team eliminating equal numbers of contestants each week, third season eliminations applied individually without regard to contestants' team affiliation (meaning that all artists competed head-to-head against all remaining contestants each week), introducing the possibility of a final four without equal team representation.

Additionally, producers made changes in the voting system with regards to iTunes singles purchases, announced during the results show. Previous voting via iTunes purchases of contestant performances had previously only counted singly during the official voting window and only accredited to the live show in concern. As of this week in the competition, if a competitor's performance stays within the Top 10 of the iTunes "Top 200 Single Chart" (updated hourly) until the close of voting, it will be given an iTunes bonus that multiplies iTunes votes made in the 24-hour voting window by ten. The finale's vote count will have include a 'Cumulative iTunes Vote Total' of all singles (from Top 12 onwards) purchased during and outside of the various voting windows, with iTunes bonus previously earned.[14]

The live top 6 performances aired on December 3, followed by a results show on December 4. Each contestant sang two songs, one of their choice, and one of the coach's choice. Coach Cee Lo was sick during rehearsals, so he brought in Pat Monahan, lead singer for Train, to coach his artists this week, while still choosing his team members' songs and keeping in touch with them on the phone. The Eliminations of Brown and Martinez were very shocking, as both were certain names in the finale.

With the eliminations of Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown, Adam Levine no longer has any artist remaining on his team.

Television ratings[edit]

Season three premiered on September 10, 2012 and was watched by 12.28 million viewers with a 4.2 rating in the key 18–49 demographic. It was down 39 percent in the demo from last season's premiere. The Voice aired three times during its first week, going up against The X Factor on September 12, 2012. This show was highly criticised by Simon Cowell, who said that The X Factor would win in ratings. However, both The Voice and The X Factor tied on September 12, 2012, both with a 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, but The Voice won in total viewers. In its regular time slot on Mondays and Tuesdays, The Voice airs opposite Dancing with the Stars.[36]
