"The singing competition show, which begins airing Sept. 10 on NBC, has added an element called "The Steal" that comes into play after a coach has cut a singer. Competitors will again go head-to-head in battle rounds and each coach -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton -- will decide to keep one of the two singers. The released singer is then fair game for the other coaches to claim.
As usual, each coach starts with 16 singers selected with their backs to the performers. The battle rounds get their pools down to eight; each coach will add two singers from the other coaches' discard piles.
To whittle each team to five singers, the performers will go into a Knock-Out Round. Each singer chooses their own song and performs while the next contestant is seated on a stool in the boxing ring they use for a set. It will then go into live competition shows, beginning at the end of October."
This sounds a little confusing, although I do like the idea of "The Steal"
