While Jennifer Hudson is a newcomer to the US edition of “The Voice,” she is coming off of a win on the British version of the show. On the Nov. 13 episode of the show, which was the first of three playoffs, Hudson had to decide which three of her six artists to take through to the live shows. In the end, she went with Davon Fleming, Shi’Ann Jones and Noah Mac.

This playoff episode of “The Voice,” as well as the ones to air on Nov. 14 featuring the six artists on Team Miley Cyrus and Nov. 15 with Adam Levine‘s top six, were taped at the end of the summer. That is a departure from the format used for the past six seasons of “The Voice” where America voted in two live playoff episodes.
