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.
