Local teenager Addison Agen performs tonight on “The Voice” in the season's first live round, which will be followed by an audience vote to determine who will continue in the competition.
On last week's pre-recorded episode, Agen's rendition of “Angel From Montgomery” earned a standing ovation from all four of the show's celebrity coaches, including Adam Levine whose team she is a part of.
“I think this girl is so special in a really profound way, and I just want to see you succeed,” Levine said as Agen wiped away tears. “You are truly a friggin' unicorn, and I adore you.”
Levine selected the Concordia Lutheran High School junior and two other members of his team to advance to the live rounds, which feature the top 12 singers of the season.
Agen sang Ray LaMontagne's “Jolene” in her blind audition, which earned her a spot on Miley Cyrus' team. She was later “stolen” by Levine in a Battle Round and survived the Knockout Round before last week's Playoffs.
Beginning tonight, the singers will perform live during two-hour broadcasts at 8 p.m. on Monday nights. The television audience can cast votes to save their favorites during a limited window after each Monday night show.
Votes can be made via NBC's “The Voice” app (available for Android and iOS users) or at nbc.com/voicevote or apps.facebook.com/nbc-the-voice. There is a limit of 10 votes per artist per email address or Facebook account.
Votes can also be also made through iTunes, Apple Music and Xfinity X1. For more information on those methods, go to www.nbc.com/the-voice/exclusives/voice-methods.
On Tuesday night, the performers with the lowest number of votes will perform a new song and the home audience can try and save their favorite by tweeting #VoiceSave along with the singer's name. The singers with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated from the competition each week.
