Each coach to guide three singers in quest for to be named season eight champion

NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice" has revealed the top 12 artists, all of whom will compete for the title beginning Monday, April 13 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).

Each of the celebrity musician coaches - Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams - will have three artists on their respective teams. At the end of each Tuesday episode, at least two performers will be eliminated until there is only one champion.

In addition, during each live results show, the artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for the "Instant Save." These artists will perform a new song that represents why they should earn the save. Then, America will have the opportunity to save their favorite performer by tweeting out #VoiceSave along with the artist's name. The singer with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week until one winner is announced as "The Voice."

Also, viewers will be able to tweet their instant save choices from within "The Voice" official app. Fans can download the free app on the App Store or get it on Google Play.

The top 12 have gone through the blind auditions, "Battle Rounds," "Knockouts" and live playoffs. Now, each artist will perform weekly in hopes to move forward and become the winner of "The Voice."

The 12 artists remaining in the competition are:
