The Voice tonight on NBC: top eight singers perform for season 6 crown

The Voice pushes further into season six tonight as the top eight remaining contestants face off in the hopes of becoming the Season 6 winner. The ante has been raised with the news that half the current judges will be stepping off the stage at season’s end, with Pharrell and Gwen Stefani taking the place of Usher and Shakira in the big red chairs. That sense of finality means that at least two judges will be pushing the contestants on their teams to score a win on their way out the door.

But for the contestants, tonight is all about the performance as the eight finalists each step forward in an attempt to put their best singing performance on the stage. By tomorrow evening, at least one of them will be headed home based on tonight’s performances and the manner in which viewers at home cast their votes.

Tonight’s new two-hour episode of The Voice airs at 8:00pm eastern time, 7:00 central time on NBC.
