This week, the top 12 contestants will each perform a song and America will vote for their favorite Monday night, with the results revealed on Tuesday night. This is the first time this season that the contestants will be performing with all of their competitors. Until now, they have only been pitted against their own teammates.
But now it’s every man for himself, and as the coaches previewed last week, this is when they’re going to have to start getting mean. No more can they shower praise on another coach’s contestant, if that means it may sway a single vote away from his or her own team’s members.
