Blake Shelton has been with “The Voice” from the start and has won five of the previous 12 seasons. On the Nov. 13 episode of the show, which was the first of three playoffs, Shelton had to decide which three of his six artists to take through to the live shows. In the end, he went with Chloe Kohanski, Red Marlow and Keisha Renee.

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.
