Season 13 of The Voice premieres with the blind audition, and a new coach – Jennifer Hudson. On The Voice, there are five rounds of the competition, but viewer participation does not occur for every round. The coaches have a large say in the beginning of the season. NBC explains:
During the Blind Auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks … Once the teams are set, the battle is on … During the Battle Rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance to the next round of competition … At the end of the Battle Rounds, only the strongest members of each coach’s roster remain and proceed to the Knockout Rounds. Here, the artists will be paired against a teammate once more … In the Playoff Rounds, the “Coach Comeback” format twist returns as each coach will be allowed to bring back one team member previously eliminated from the competition during the Knockout Rounds. The top 24 artists will compete to secure a spot in the Live Shows.
It is during the live shows that viewers will be able to cast their votes for their favorite singers.

Voting via iTunes
You can also vote for contestants by downloading their “eligible songs” on iTunes during the voting period. Each individual song download counts as one vote. And, if any of the artists make it into the top 10 of iTunes’ Top 200 Singles, they get a bonus, which multiplies their iTunes votes for that song times ten.
