Trae Patton/NBC

Tonight, May 11, 2021, on NBC’s “The Voice,” the remaining 17 contestants will be narrowed down to the top nine of the season with each coach keeping two contestants total and one more being saved with the Instant Save vote.

Viewers can vote for the Instant Save Wildcard contestant online of on the official “The Voice” app.

The Instant Save voting is open during the Eastern and Central Time broadcasts of the results episodes. Tonight, that means the window will be open for five minutes during the episode starting from the time that the start of Instant Save voting is announced.

Artists with the fewest amounts of votes from their teams will compete for the Instant Save.

Here’s how to vote for the Instant Save tonight:


Vote for the Instant Save on the Voice App or Online

In past seasons, the Instant Save vote took place on Twitter when viewers would vote using the hashtag #VoiceSave along with the name of the artist they wanted to save from elimination.

For the past two seasons, things have been a bit different. Viewers have to vote using the Voice App or the show’s website. They must be registered with a valid email address, Facebook account, or Google account for both methods. Once voting opens up, you can go here to vote within the time period. You can also vote on the Official Voice App.

Voting is only open for a small amount of time, so be sure to get in there as quickly as possible to make your vote for the Instant Save count.


Fans Think the Instant Save is Unfair

Fans have previously taken to Twitter to call out what they call an unfair voting process when it comes to the instant saves.

Because the Instant Save happens during the East Coast broadcast of the show, West Coast voters have to decide who to vote for before even seeing the performances.

Voting for the regular episodes of “The Voice” take place overnight so everyone has an equal opportunity to watch the episode and then get their votes in, but because of the nature of the Instant Save, that’s not the case in this instance.
