The 12 finalists will perform and viewers will cast their votes on Monday's telecast. Then on Tuesday's live elimnation show, after the saved artists are annonced, the three remaining singers who are in danger of going home will be revealed.
That's when "The Voice" fans will be given five minutes to tweet, using hashtag “#VoiceSave," the first name of the contestant they would like to see stay on the show, host Carson Daly said in a video posted on "The Voice's" website.
