NBC's "The Voice" has reportedly rolled out its short list of performers for this week's semifinals. According to Entertainment Tonight, the singing competition has recruited coach Adam Levine, Big Boi and DNCE to take the Universal Studios Hollywood stage during Tuesday's eliminations episode.
Levine will become the second coach to perform during Season 12 of "The Voice" following Blake Shelton's performance last week. He will join Big Boi for a performance of "Mic Jack," Big Boi's new single on which Levine provided featured vocals. Big Boi has been making the rounds with the song since it dropped in April, including performing it on NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" that you can watch now by using the media player included with this article.
The Entertainment Tonight report also says that boy band DNCE will bring their own current single "Kissing Strangers." It will be interesting to see what DNCE does with the song, because it features Nicki Minaj on both vocals and in the music video, and she will not be present for their appearance on "The Voice." That's not entirely unheard of; G-Eazy just helped ring in the "Voice" playoffs a few weeks ago performing his single "Good Life" with a substitute female vocalist who looked a little bit like Team Blake contestant Aliyah Moulden. But what will DNCE do with their single to work around Minaj's absence?
Of course, the most important part of Tuesday's episode of "The Voice" isn't the musical performances. It's the fact that the show will be cutting its field in half. Tuesday will reveal which four of the eight Season 12 artists are advancing to next week's finale. It could even wind up being a very interesting night for Levine, as he has only one singer left in the competition, so he could both be featured as a musical guest and eliminated as a coach in the same episode. It will all depend on how America votes following Monday's semifinal performance show.
Meanwhile, both of the songs that will be featured on Tuesday are available on iTunes. Fans can download "Mic Jack" here and "Kissing Strangers" here, and learn more about all of the upcoming performers by clicking their names in this article to visit their artist pages at AXS.
"The Voice" airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
