LOS ANGELES (AP) - NBC's talent show "The Voice" is jumping on Facebook's "timeline" app bandwagon, giving fans another way to vote for their favorite contestants.

The new application allows viewers to cast votes for "Voice" singers and connect with friends and others watching the show, NBC and Facebook said Friday.

Audience voting on live performances begins Monday.

NBC says that besides serving as a ballot box and a bridge between viewers, the "Voice" app will lead users to new content, including performance videos and blogs.

In January, Facebook unveiled more than 60 of the new apps that let people share the smallest details of their lives on their "profiles," now known as their timelines.
