(WMC-TV) - There are 12 contestants left on NBC's "The Voice" with only 10 spots up for grabs.

Memphians Kris Thomas a Sarah Simmons perform again live Monday night in hopes of grabbing one of those sports.

The songs the performers sing can make a big impact on votes from the viewers. The coaches decide on the song choices for Thomas and Simons. If the singers do not like the song choice, they can work with the judges on an alternative.

Picking popular songs playing on the radio could be a good strategy, as most viewers who vote tend to be a younger audience. For example, last week Thomas sang Bruno Mars' current hit, "When I was your Man". Out of the four on his team he was picked by the audience vote.

In comparison, Simmons sang Sarah McLachlan's popular song Angel, which came out in 1997. It was probably not as well known by the younger audience, leaving Simmons in the bottom two. Sarah was saved from elimination at the very last second by her coach Adam Levine.

Now, it is a new week with all new songs.

"I'll be doing one of the biggest songs. Well, an interview with two of the biggest artists of all time. I can say that," said Thomas. "So, it's going to be a pretty big performance. A lot of pressure."

Simmons plans to show a different side of her style Monday night.

"It's going to be a little more upbeat with a twist, so I'm really excited," said Simmons.

It is all up to you to keep Thomas and Simmons singing on the voice. Their coaches can no longer save them. There are 4 ways to vote:

1.) Online via Facebook (https://apps.facebook.com/nbc-the-voice) or (www.NBC.com/the-voice/vote)

2.) Call the artists' toll-free number.

3.) Buy Kris Thomas' song or Sarah Simmons' song on itunes. Go to www.iTunes.com/thevoice

4.) Text the artists' number.

For each voting method, you can vote up to ten times during the voting period.
