UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - March 12, 2014 - Coaches from NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice" have each selected their 12-member teams that will advance to the battle rounds phase of the competition.

Beginning Monday, March 17 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT), the coaches and celebrity advisers will work with their respective teams of performers and develop skill sets, offer advice and encouragement, and share secrets about their own personal success.

During the battle rounds, each coach will pit two of their own team members against one another, each asked 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 knockout round, while the losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals available during the battle rounds.
