'The Voice': Trevin Hunte
The front-runner discusses his strategy for the live shows.
The Top 12 brought it on NBC’s The Voice Monday night and left everything out there on the stage for America to see.

The scene was epic and the fans were excited as the Top 12 from Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera’s teams pulled off some spectacular performances overall.

While frontrunners Amanda Brown and Trevin Hunte both pulled off good sets, it was another contestant from Team Adam – Bryan Keith – who appeared to have the breakout performance of the evening.

But that’s not all Celebuzz saw when we were live in the studio audience for the show. We’ve got some behind-the-scenes dish for you on what happened when the cameras weren’t rolling.

Here are eight things you didn’t see on TV:

1. Fans have priorities. Fans show up in droves thanks to 1iota for The Voice and other reality competition shows, often giving hours of their day away just for the chance to watch the performances up close and in person. Or even better, take a spot in the pit section and possibly touch a contestant or coach. But with all this time dedicated to being a fan, how do they get things done? Multitasking, of course. We spotted a few fans in the pit actually studying, or so it appeared, prior to show time.

2. Those set changes aren’t easy. Between every performance on The Voice, there are at least 40 people on stage changing out the stairs, mics, and the like as well as cleaning the stage. They are the oil that makes this machine run smoothly. Without them, nothing on this show would be possible, which brings us to…

3. The Coaches’ Glam Squads. These folks are probably the second most important group of people on this show. We know, we know, it takes a lot of people to run a live show, especially The Voice, but these hair and makeup teams are hard at work and get out there every commercial break to touch up their clients – making sure every bit of Adam’s hair is spiked perfectly, Christina’s lips look just right and Cee Lo’s head isn’t too shiny. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it.

4. The warm-up guy needs some new jokes. We know the guy in charge of keeping the audience at max volume and energy has a hard job, but he seriously needs to get some new material. I don’t think I can handle one more ‘white people can’t dance’ jab. Funny the first time, but not the 15th.

5. Adam can’t sit still. The Maroon 5 front man got up from his chair almost every commercial break, whether it was to talk to one of the other coaches or leave the stage. One particularly cute moment had Levine and host Carson Daly walking off the stage in a sort of oompa-loompa type of arm hold. Very adorable.

6. The coaches are hot… in more ways than one. Those lights which shine down on the coaches must be hot, because every coach except Adam had members of their glam squads actually fanning them during commercial breaks.

7. Beat the clock. You can’t see it on TV, but from where we were sitting behind the coaches you could see a tiny little screen in front of them telling the coaches how much time they have to give their feedback. Often it’s 20 to 30 seconds with more time allotted for the coach whose team the performer is from. However, none of the coaches seem to make their comments in the specified time. The biggest offender? That would be Ms. Xtina.

8. Christina wants everyone to own Lotus. During one of the last commercial breaks of the show, the singer was seen handing Levine, his friend and Shelton copies of her new disc, Lotus, which drops on Tuesday.

The Voice continues Tuesday at 8 PM ET/ tape delayed PT with live elimination.
