How to Vote?

You can vote for your favorite finalist through the show’s app, online on NBC’s website (or through its Facebook page), and by buying the songs on iTunes.

The App voting starts with the show at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and ends on Tuesday at noon. You can give up to 10 votes per artist per valid email address, meaning you can log off and login with a different email and vote again. You can also log in with your Facebook account and vote again.

The online voting starts with the show’s end at 9:55 p.m and ends on Tuesday at noon. You can give up to 10 votes per artist per valid email address. You can also log in with your Facebook account and vote again.

The iTunes voting also starts at 9:55 p.m. and ends on Tuesday at noon. You can send one vote by buying a solo song of a finalist. Only the first download of the song will count and it must be downloaded after the show’s end and before noon on Tuesday.

If some of the songs end up in the top 10 of iTunes “Top 200 Singles Chart” at the end of the voting window, all their iTunes votes will be multiplied by 10.

Also, all iTunes votes gathered before Tuesday 9 a.m. will be added to the finalists tallies. So if you haven’t bought the previous eligible voting songs yet, you can still do so and they will be counted.
