@jewels The mentors picked a singer to mentor in 6 cities. They went to their houses, etc. Then the four singers perform and the city chooses their "city representative". After six cities, we ended up with 6 semi-finalists and one wild card voted by the fans. There were 3 semifinals to determine 3 finalists. The amazing thing is there is only a 10 MINUTE voting window. So last night, after the 3 finalists performed, they opened the voting for 10 minutes... and then we had a winner. Fascinating stuff. 


@lyndseyparker It's the finals tonight!
