The Voice - How the points are determined.

A lot of people on twitter are asking how the points are determined. Well here you have it:

After the semifinals performances, both coach score and audience vote will determine which artists advance to the final performance round. Each coach will have 100 points to split between the two artists on his or her team. The number given to each artist is their "Coach Score." Each artist will also receive an "Audience Score" that reflects his or her share (or percentage) of total votes cast for the team. This number is calculated by dividing the votes the artist received by the total votes received by that artist's team. Each artist's "Coach Score" and "Audience Score" will be added, and the artist with the higher overall number on each team will advance to the final performance round.
For example: Artist A and Artist B from Sample Team receive 1,000,000 and 3,000,000 audience votes, respectively, for a total Sample Team vote of 4,000,000. This means Artist A's Audience Score is 75 (3,000,000 divided by 4,000,000), and Artist B's Audience Score is 25 (1,000,000 divided by 4,000,000). Assume Artist A receives a Coach Score of 55 and Artist B receives a Coach Score of 45 (for a total of 100 points). To determine who advances, combine the artists' respective Audience Scores and Coach Scores:
  • Artist A: 75 + 55 = 130
  • Artist B: 25 + 45 = 70
In this example, Artist A has the higher combined score and will advance to the finals.
