Vote for Your Best Voice

18 May 2017
From this Sunday May 21 at 19:00, you will exercise your right to keep your favourite voice in the competition.

The coaches have made their picks and the Top 16 are ready for the Live Show stage. From this Sunday May 21 at 19:00, you will exercise your right to keep your favourite voice in the competition.

Two of the four coaches will have their four talent each performing in the first live show. This means that there will be eight talent singing for your vote.

After the performances of each coach’s talent, the coach will SAVE ONE TALENT. Once all the talent from the two teams have performed and the coaches have made their saves, voting on BOTH platforms will open for the six talent – three from each team. This is where you come in. You get to vote to SAVE YOUR FAVOURITE VOICE.

This season, voting is very easy and you may vote ONLY by SMS and WeChat.
