  1. Previously on The Amazing Race, our most competitive season ever began with a splash. In Iceland, Team Goat Yoga got off to a rocky start, while others were steady as a rock. Team Big Brother's Cody sped through the Roadblock and Team Slam Dunk was called for a foul and received a penalty. Extreme skiiers Kristi and Jen gave it their best shot and took the gold. Cedric and Shawn were spared from elimination.  In the end, it came down to inches in the closest finish we've ever had.  And the Ring Girls got knocked out of the game. 10 teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

     

    We see at the end of the last pitstop that Kristi is sick and Jen is sitting with her. Jen says they are all in for the race and Kristi says they are glad to be there and she is good as new.

     

    Kristi and Jen depart at 8:08 and will be the first team to leave the sparsely populated country of Iceland. After flying to Amsterdam, they will board a train and fly to Antwerp, Belgium where they’ll need to find a chocolate shop by 9 AM. Chocolate is so revered there that 10% of the entire population makes it. They’ll get their next clue from Stan, a Chocolatier in downtown Antwerp.

     

    Cody and Jess head out with Henry and Evan right behind. All teams have left and have gotten their tickets and they are all on the same flight.

     

    All teams are at the chocolate shop and are waiting to run it at 9 AM. Roadblock: What do you get if you take a 100 plus foot crane and some rope ladders? An opportunity to get so high you can almost see all of Belgium. This is sky climb, the latest, greatest, death defying adrenaline rush in town. Now a roadblock for teams here in Belgium…their next clue looks very small from here. That’s a long way up!

     

    Cedric and Shawn are first to the crane, with Chris and Trevor quickly behind. Jessica and Cody arrive next with Joey and Tim behind them. April and Sarah are lost. Brittany and Lucas saw the cranes but Brittany wasn’t sure if it was the right one.

     

    Shawn, Chris, Jessica, and Joey climb the ladders for the respective teams. Shawn’s clue falls off, but he still has to climb to the top and touch the top rung of the ladder. Cody shouts encouragement to Jessica and says he’s proud of her because she’s so fearless. All four of them have completed the Roadblock.

     

    Detour: Old Print: Phil tells us few inventions have had more impact on civilization than the printing press, which made it possible to distribute information to the masses for the first time. When you think about how easy it is to send a message around today, this gives you a real appreciation for just how painstaking this pioneering printing process was. Something teams will now experience when they try and print a clue.

     

    Diamond Glint: Phil explains what he is holding is the hardest naturally occurring substance on Earth, pure carbon formed by heat and pressure. 80% of the world’s rough diamonds come here to Antwerp to be cut, a multi-billion dollar business. He shows a necklace worth $44, 565, based on it’s carat, color, and clarity, three factors teams will need to consider when evaluating three diamonds. They’ll then add those values to the cost of an unfinished necklace and calculate the total value for their next clue.

     

    Trevor and Chris and Tim and Joey choose diamond glint and Shawn and Cedric and Jessica and Cody choose old print. As they are leaving for the detour, no other teams have yet arrived. We see the other teams who are still looking for the crane’s and seem to be lost.  

     

    Alex and Connor grab a cab and the driver says it’s only 100 meters away. Henry and Evan are 4th. April and Sarah are 6th with Lucas and Brittany and Kristi and Jen right behind in 7th and 8th. Alex and Connor arrive in 9th, with Eric and Daniel the last to arrive.

     

    Evan, Sarah, Lucas, and Kristi are climbing for their respective teams. They all got their clue and all of those teams except Sarah and April choose old print. Cody and Jessica are the first to arrive at old print and Shawn and Cedric come in right after.

     

    Alex and Connor are the final two to climb the ladders and they both have their clues. Alex and Connor are doing diamond glint and Eric and Daniel are doing old print. Brittany and Lucas are struggling to get a taxi and they are bickering a little.

     

    All teams that have arrived for the detours are figuring out what they need to do and begin working. Cody says this task is meticulous and he’s not too worried about the other teams right now. They take theirs to check if it’s ready and they have made a mistake and have to start over.

     

    Cedric and Shawn think they are ready for their printing and they are. They get their clue printed but see they have some letters backwards and wrong and have to fix that. They fix it and Cedric and Shawn have their clue and they look for help to translate it.

     

    Trevor and Chris get a check and their estimation is $78,896 but the actual value is $98,620. They are wrong and have to try again. Joey and Tim try and they are wrong on theirs as well. Kristi and Jen are getting their printwork checked and they are right and they have their next clue. Cody and Jessica have completed their clue and they are done.

     

    Cedric and Shawn have arrived at the next clue box. It’s time to go head-to-head! Phil tells us that it’s believed what we call French Fries were actually invented by Belgiums and they called them Frites. They love them so much they sometimes dress up in giant Frites costumes to race. Now the most competitive group of racers ever assembled will face their first ever head-to-head competition on The Amazing Race.

     

    A member from each of these highly competitive teams will race around the obstacle course. Winners will check in at the pitstop and the losers will have to wait for the next team to race again. If they lose the final race, they will be eliminated. They may switch partners between races.

     

    Henry and Evan are done, but Brittany and Lucas had theirs backward. Eric and Daniel also had theirs backward and they think they chose the wrong detour. Jessica and Cody arrive second at the pitstop cluebox. Henry and Evan arrive in the third. Cody is racing against Cedric. Cedric has dropped a bag and has to go back and pick it up. Cody is leading. Cedric goes around a turn and drops all of his bags off his dolly. Cody crosses the line and is the winner. Cody and Jessica are the first to hit the mat at the pit stop. They have won $2,500 each.

     

    Cedric and Shawn have to go again against the next team. Trevor and Chris have figured out the value of their necklace and they have their clue. Brittany and Lucas have a few letters wrong and they have to try again. Eric and Daniel are struggling and they decide to switch to diamond glint.

     

    We have Shawn against Henry in the next race. Henry has lost his shoe and he’s struggling a little bit. Shawn is struggling a little bit too but he’s in the lead. Shawn has finished the race and they are the second team to check in at the pitstop.

     

    Evan is now against Kristi for the next race. Evan is struggling quickly and runs into a barricade. Kristi is going slow and steady. Phil says it’s a little like slalom skiing. Evan has lost a bag and Kristi finishes first. Kristi and Jen are the third team to check in at the pitstop.

     

    Trevor and Chris have arrived and Chris is going against Henry. Chris steers off track quickly but recovers. Henry is going slow and Chris passes him and Henry drops some of his bags of Frites. Chris has crossed the finish line. Trevor and Chris are the fourth team to check-in at the pit stop.

     

    April and Sarah are still at diamond glint. Alex and Connor finish diamond glint and they are off. Joey and Tim also finish and they are off too. Brittany and Lucas finish old print and they have their clue. April and Sarah and Eric and Daniel are the last two teams at diamond glint.

     

    Alex and Connor have arrived and Alex is going against Evan for the race. Both of them are off and Alex is in the lead very quickly. Sarah hits an obstruction but she keeps everything on the dolly. Evan has lost a bag on another turn and Alex finishes for their team. Alex and Connor are the fifth team to the mat for the pitstop.

     

    Lucas and Brittany have arrived and it’s Lucas vs Henry. Henry struggles and recovers and then Lucas struggles and Henry loses a bag. This is a very close race but Henry runs into another barricade. Henry hits the bridge and Lucas crosses the finish line. Brittany and Lucas are the sixth team to arrive at the pitstop.

     

    Tim and Joey are at the race and Tim is going against Evan. Tim is out of control a bit, but slows down to maintain the lead. Phil notes that Evan and Henry are both tired and exhausted from them losing so many races. Tim crosses the finish line and Tim and Joey are the seventh team to hit the mat at the pitstop.

     

    Back at diamond glint, April and Sarah finish their task and they get their clue and they are able to move on. Eric and Daniel try and they also have finished and they are on their way to the race.

     

    Henry is going to go again and he’s going to use a different strategy against April. Henry cut in front of April and he is leading, but April is not far behind. Henry is focused. Henry is at the bridge and gets over it and he falls as he’s crossing the line, but he recovers and Henry and Evan are team number 8 at the pitstop.

     

    Eric and Daniel have now arrived and it’s time for the last race. Sarah thinks April should run again. Phil explains this is the last race, they have one shot and if they lose then they are out of the race. April vs Daniel are off. Daniel has lost some Frites but he recovers and is right behind April. April gets twisted and they hit each other. Daniel takes the lead. Daniel crosses the finish line. Daniel and Eric are team number 9 and they check-in at the pitstop.

     

    April and Sarah come in and Phil gives April huge props for going out a second time. Eric and Daniel say April and Sarah finished the diamonds first and they were the better team today. April and Sarah have been eliminated from the race.


  2. After a global search, four of the best artists have been chosen to sit in the hottest seats in music. But each week, new artists will come in hoping to challenge The Four in a head-to-head battle to claim their seat. Before they can take on The Four, the challengers must prove they’re good enough by auditioning for a panel of industry experts.

     

    Before they can take on The Four, the challengers must prove they’re good enough by auditioning for a panel of industry experts:  chart topping hit maker and super producer, DJ Khaled; star maker and record executive, Charlie Walk; Grammy award winning singer/song writer, Meghan Trainor; and music icon, Sean “Diddy” Combs.

     

    To start the competition they have hand-picked the four artists they think best reflect the charts today: Lex Lu; Blair Perkins; Elanese Lansen; and Ash Minor. Starting tonight, these four are the ones to beat. Their goal is to hold onto their seats over the next six weeks, as incredible artists try to replace them.

     

    In the end, only one of The Four will go onto win the ultimate prize: a career guided by the panel of hit makers who are all committed to creating a break-out star.

     

    We welcome our host, Fergie, from The Black Eyed Peas. Fergie introduces the panel of experts to the audience. This panel was put together to specifically launch the career of this season’s winner.

     

    Diddy is looking for something fresh, something new. Something he can feel in his soul and something he can obsess over when he’s on the treadmill or doing yoga. He’s looking for that next big superstar.

     

    Fergie introduces the four to beat and they come out and sing Can’t Stop the Music by Justin Timberlake as a group. Fergie sends them to their seats and tells them not to get too comfortable because tonight they will have to fight to stay in them. As of right now, they are in control of their seats.

     

    We get to meet our first challenger, Tyler Griffin from New Jersey. Tyler sings Talk Dirty by Jason Derulo. DJ Khaled does not look impressed, but Meghan Trainor seems to enjoy the performance and says to Charlie she is in love.

     

    DJ says he had the crowd involved and he enjoyed the dancing, he’s a performer, but you have to be great. Diddy says Tyler made him smile with his energy and his voice, but we’ll see.

     

    Charlie says as a record executive, he’s bringing what he does during the day to the show. He says they’re in the great business. Tyler was good, but The Four are great. Meghan disagrees and asks if he was nervous at all and Tyler says no. Meghan says Tyler seemed likes he’s been performing for years.

     

    It’s time for the panel to vote. Surrounding Tyler is four rings and each ring represents a panelist. If a panelist votes yes, the ring will turn blue. If a panelist votes no, the ring will turn red. An artist needs all of the panelists to vote yes to get through to challenge. One red ring and the artist is out. The panel is now voting.

     

    The verdict is in. Let’s see if Tyler did enough to challenge one of the four. The first ring turns blue. The second ring turns blue. The third ring turns blue. The final ring is red and Tyler does not get to challenge The Four.

     

    Charlie says everyone enjoyed the performance, it’s just not good enough right now to take on The Four. Diddy says that’s one thing you have to know about The Four. The bar is raised and better luck next time.

     

    The next challenger is Zhavia from California. We got to see a sneak peek at her in the preview. Zhavia sings Location by Khalid. The panelists seem to be enjoying Zhavia. Charlie is swaying back and forth and DJ Khaled seems impressed. Charlie gives a standing ovation when Zhavia is finished.

     

    DJ Khaled says this is why he’s here. He says she sang amazing and her swag was amazing. Charlie feels like he was listening to the future here tonight.

     

    Meghan says she’s 16! Imagine her at 18. Meghan looks at The Four and says they should be terrified right now. Diddy says he’s going to be honest, he doesn’t think she can take a chair. Diddy says this is what we came here to do.

     

    The panel is now voting whether Zhavia will get an opportunity to challenge one of The Four. It’s time to find out the results. The first ring is blue. The second ring turns blue. The third ring turns blue. The four ring turns blue and we have our first challenge of the show. DJ Khaled comes out clapping and gives Zhavia a high five and says this is what we’re here for.

     

    Fergie says Zhavia has earned the first challenge and tells her to look at The Four. Zhavia says she knows who she’s going to choose. Fergie asks who she’s coming for and we head to commercial.

     

    We’re back and Zhavia is about to announce who she has decided to challenge. She is coming for Elanese. Fergie says Elanese will perform first and then it’s up to Zhavia to beat her performance. But this time, it’s not up to the panel. Ultimately, in the music business, the power belongs to the fans. So the audience will decide who claims a seat on The Four and who goes home.

     

    First up is Elanese. Elanese performs Echame La Culpa by Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato. The panelists are bobbing their heads and the crowd seems to enjoy the performance. Zhavia steps up to perform Unforgettable by French Montana. Charlie seems to be enjoying the performance and Diddy is bobbing his head. Elanese does not look impressed and she’s shaking her head as she’s watching Zhavia perform.

     

    Meghan thinks they both did an amazing job. She loves what Elanese did, but the 16-year old girl just came up here like what? DJ says he’s excited that the fans are going to decide so he’s going to hold his opinion and just say they are both great. Time for the audience to decide and they are voting now.

     

    Will Elanese hold on to her seat? Or will she be the first of The Four to go home? The winner of this challenge is…

     

    The winner of the challenge is…Zhavia! It’s time for Elanese to give up her seat and Zhavia gets to go claim her seat with The Four. Her seat is now locked. Zhavia is now safe for the night and cannot be challenged for the rest of the show.

     

    Charlie tells Elanese that on this stage she has to come and bring it every single time and you have to compete at the highest level and she didn’t do that.

     

    Fergie welcomes us back and one seat is locked and three up for grabs. Zhavia is safe for the night. But Lex Lu, Ash Minor, and Blair Perkins have yet to be challenged. The next artist is Anthony Hall from Florida. Anthony will be singing Feet It Still by Portugal, The Man.

     

    Meghan says it’s her favorite song right now and she loved it. Diddy says if he gets a second chance to bring it more. The first ring is blue. The second ring is blue. The last two were red.

     

    Charlie says no because he doesn’t think he can entertain a whole crowd. Diddy says no because he feels that he didn’t bring everything to the stage.

     

    The next artist is Chris from Dallas, Texas. His stage name is Illakriss and he is performing Let’s Groove by Earth, Wind, and Fire.

     

    Meghan says his stage presence is something she’s never seen before and she loves his originality. Charlie says he thinks he’s interesting, maybe for other shows. That’s not what they are doing there.

     

    Diddy says maybe they just have different tastes. Diddy says originality is key and Illakriss came out and did him. DJ Khaled is about passion and he didn’t get no feeling. Diddy is advocating for Illakriss to go through.

     

    Lex Lu says put him through. Diddy asks her if she’s ready to eat and she says yeah, put him through. Diddy says does he look like a chicken wing or steak dinner? Lex Lu says he looks like a cake walk. It’s time for the panelists to vote.

     

    Voting is over. The first ring turns blue. The second ring turns blue. The third ring turns blue. The fourth ring turns blue and we have a challenge. Fergie says Zhavia cannot be challenged tonight, but he can choose any of the other three. Ash says he won’t pick Lex Lu because she’ll eat him up. We head to commercial.

     

    We’re back and Illakriss is deciding who to challenge. He selects Lex Lu. Lex Lu will perform first and she performs Wild Thoughts by DJ Khaled. Illakriss is attempting to beat Lex Lu’s performance and he takes the stage with Special Delivery by G. Dep.

     

    DJ Khaled liked that performance by Illakriss better than the first one, but he did like Lex Lu’s song pick. DJ says he wants to be honest and he feels like it could be greater. Diddy says this is hip hop and you have to come with you’re A game. If he had to put his money on anyone, it would be Lex Lu, but he’s not happy with either of those performances.

     

    The audience is voting. The winner of this challenge is…

     

    The winner of the challenge is…Lex Lu. Her seat is now locked for the night and Illakriss is sent home.

     

    The next challenger is Valentina Cytrynowicz from California. Valentina sings Green Light by Lorde.

     

    Charlie says he’s had the privilege to work with Lorde, since she was 16 and they had a song called Royals. He’s impressed she sang the song and he saw a real artist on the stage and that’s what they do, they work with real people. Meghan says it was a beautiful performance and music is subjective and she’s just not a fan of her.

     

    Diddy thinks it’s a cold, cruel world and the truth will set you free. He didn’t like it one bit and he thinks she can do better. He says it just wasn’t a great performance. DJ Khaled asks Zhavia what she thinks about Valentina. Zhavia thinks if you’re going to sing someone’s song, you have to sing it better than them and she didn’t think Valentina did that. DJ Khaled agrees.

     

    Charlie is pushing for Valentina and thinks she should have a second chance to sing. Ash thinks Valentina will challenge him if he gets a chance. The panelist’s are voting.

     

    The verdict is in. The first ring turns blue. The second ring turns blue. The third ring and fourth ring are both red. Charlie doesn’t understand why they wouldn’t let her challenge. Diddy says the honeymoon is over and he wants greatness now.

     

    The next artist is Saeed Renaud. Saeed sings Run To You by Whitney Houston.

     

    Meghan is crying, and she says she’s never had that experience in her life. DJ Khaled says this is what he calls he’s securing the bag. If anyone says no on this panel, he’s out of there.

     

    Charlie says there is a place for him in the music business for sure. Diddy says thank you for setting the bar so high. He wants to see a challenge. It’s time for the panelists to vote.

     

    The verdict is in. The first ring is blue. The second ring is blue. The third ring is blue. The fourth ring is blue and we have 4 yes’s and we have a challenge!

     

    Ash says he’s a little nervous, but if he lost to an artist like Saeed he’s got to say he’s great and he respects him. Blair says he worked hard for the seat and he doesn’t plan on losing it. Fergie asks who Saeed is going to challenge and we go to commercial.

     

    We’re back and Saeed is decided who to challenge between Ash and Blair. Saeed says I want you and he points to Blair. Blair performs first, and he sings Stay With Me by Sam Smith. Saeed has to try and beat Blair’s performance, and he sings Love Me Again by John Newman.

     

    DJ Khaled says he’s so excited to be on this show. He asks Saeed if he is ready for the big time? He asks Blair if he’s ready for success? DJ says this is what you call talent. Meghan loved both performances, but she thinks Saeed won it.

     

    Charlie says Blair was pitch perfect tonight and he thinks Blair should keep his seat. Diddy says Blair brought the drama, but he didn’t close the show. Now it’s up to the audience. They will vote for Blair or Saeed.

     

    The verdict is in…

     

    The winner of this challenge is…Saeed.

     

    Diddy says Blair should keep doing what he’s doing, he’ll get there. Blair is leaving the show tonight.       


  3. At just over 10 miles long and a few miles wide, the tiny island of Manhattan is home to 1.6 million people and is the starting line for the momentous 30th season of The Amazing Race. Hundreds have gathered in Washington Square Park to witness the beginning of the adventure. Making their way through the city to the starting line right now are the most competitive ever assembled for the Race. They are champions, gold medalists, life savers, and music sensation, but above all competitors.

     

    We have Joey and Tim and they are world champion competitive eaters. They are both excited to be competing with each other instead of against each other.

     

    Cedric and Shawn are next, and they are former NBA players. The only thing they are thinking is don’t get eliminated first and they think running the race will be a slam dunk.

     

    Dessie and Kayla think people will call them the underdogs and they want to prove them long. They are both models and they both work in the boxing industry. They are ready to knock-out the competition.

     

    Alex and Conor says competition is what fuels their souls and they are driven to do, compete. They live in Indianapolis, and Alex won the 100th running of the Indy 500. They want to cross the finish line first and get that checkered flag.

     

    Jen and Kristi and they are professional skiiers. Jen is a two-time world champion and Kristi is one of the pioneers of their sport.

     

    Cody and Jessica met on Big Brother and Jessica says the race is going to continue their journey. Cody says Jessica is the love of his life and is extremely loyal.

     

    Phil greets the racers and fans. He brings in the fans and the crowd cheers. Phil allows the competitive eater to enjoy a hot dog before starting the race. Phil talks briefly to a few of the teams and then says let’s get the race started! Their first clue is in the fountain they are standing in front of and Phil gives the Go!

     

    Conor says Alex won the biggest race in the world, but hasn’t won the biggest race around the world yet. We then meet Lucas and Brittany and they are both ocean rescue lifeguards. They have been dating for nine years and he plans on proposing somewhere along the race.

     

    April and Sarah both do Goat Yoga in Arizona. But they have many talents and they say they will win the race.

     

    Henry and Evan have been dating for a year and a half and they met freshman year when they were both on Yale’s debate team.

     

    Eric and Daniel are twins and they are both firefighter paramedics. They have been fans of the race for years and they are ready to get it done.

     

    Trevor and Chris are violinists and they have been in a group for five years and have been together for three years.

     

    All teams are now headed to Iceland. Phil tells all teams are now making their way to Iceland, and the capital city of Reykjavic. When they land, they must drive themselves to a river canyon waterfall, known as Geitargljufur, and pick up their next clue.

     

    Conor and Alex are out and Conor says he has an IndyCar driver driving and he has no complaints. Cody says he was hoping it was going to be a walk in the park against these guys, but they are shockingly not dumb. Jess says they aren’t on Big Brother anymore and Cody says well, we lost that.

     

    Lucas and Brittany are driving and Brittany says if Lucas steers her wrong she will hold it over his head for the rest of his life. April and Sarah got different directions than everyone else because a stewardess told her the other way was the long way.

     

    The sun is rising and the teams are appreciating the view. Henry and Evan are the first to arrive. Phil tells us Iceland is one of the few places on earth where you can see tectonic plates pushing against each other, creating spectacular canyons. Teams will now get to see this from the air after picking up an Icelandic flag while dangling high above a raging river.

     

    Evan goes out for their team. Cody and Jessica have arrived and Jessica is going across. Cody tells her to go hand over hand and don’t even think about it.

     

    Henry and Evan rip open their clue and they have to drive themselves to Esjumelur and search for their next clue.

     

    A few teams are having a difficult time finding the canyon. Alex is out for their team. Cedric is out for their team. Kristi is out for their team. Shawn is struggling to pull Cedric back in. April and Sarah are aggravated with each other and they are already bickering.

     

    Dessie and Kayla are at the canyon with Trevor and Chris and both complete their task.

     

    Henry and Evan have reached the road block. Phil tells us teams will face their first road block here in the foothills of Mount Esjan. Riding along in one of these off-road buggies with an expert driver, teams will race back and forth across this river bed as many times as they need to looking for letters that spell out Ingolfstorg, the name of a square in downtown Reykjavic. The trick is figuring out the numbers on the letters give them the correct order of the letters. Henry is going out for their team.

     

    Henry has spotted the numbers on the letters, and he figures it’s the order the letters should be in. We hear him ask the driver to drive a little slower. Cody is going for their team. Henry is trying to assemble his letters and asks for a check and he is missing 2 letters, both O’s.

     

    Conor is going for his team and says he’s comfortable in the suit he has to wear because he wears similar for IndyCar driving. We see Joey and Tim and Lucas and Brittany back getting their flag at the canyon.

     

    Jessica is encouraging Cody. Alex is encouraging Henry to take his time. Conor has missed the numbers on the letters and he has no idea what’s going on. Henry has rearranged his letters and is wrong. Cody is the first to finish and Jessica says Conor finished. Alex says that’s not Conor.

     

    Cody rips their clue and Phil tells us these modern-day Vikings are famous for dominating international lifting competitions. Teams must find Katrin who will ask them to identify two popular national tonics. Jessica tells Cody he just beat a Yale graduate in a spelling competition. Cody says some say he is smart and Jessica says she hasn’t met those people.

     

    April and Sarah and Eric and Daniel have reach the canyon for their flags and they realize they are the last two teams. Henry asks for another check and he is correct this time. Alex realizes Conor is getting stressed and he needs to relax. Shawn has done his letters and he asks for a check and is wrong. One of the O’s has an accent mark and the other does not. Conor missed the numbers that would give him the order he needs for the word.

     

    Cody and Jessica have arrived at their next stop. Jessica has found Katrin and Katrin has two questions for them. Question #1 is what do Icelanders call the “black death”? Question #2 is What is Porskalysi? Katrin tells them to come find her when they have the answer.

     

    Cody and Jessica ask for help from citizens on the street and quickly get some answers. They say black death is coffee, but they are incorrect. Cody asks if the answer to the second question is cod liver oil and Katrin says that is correct. They have to find out what black death is. Cody asks another man and he says it is something called Brennivin. Cody gives Katrin the answers and she says they are correct. They each get a shot. Jessica gets the cod liver oil and Cody gets the Brennivin.

     

    Cody rips the clue and says they have to make their way on foot to the pitstop. Phil tells us first settled by Vikings, this is the northernmost capital city in the world. And in the heart of Reykjavic, Reykjavikurtjorn is the pitstop for this leg of the race. The last team to check in will be eliminated.

     

    Cody and Jess have headed out and Jessica thinks they are going the wrong way. Cody is leading the way and Jess says maybe the lake is a shore and Cody says no. Jess says it’s disheartening because they were just in first and now they are lost.

     

    Kristi and Jen have also completed the task and they are also looking for the pitstop. Jessica mumbles that Cody is not listening to her. Kristi and Jen hit the mat and have finished in first place. As the winners of this leg, they have won a trip to Greece.

     

    Jessica says the lake was right next to the square. We go back to the roadblock and see teams still working on their words. Conor is going back for a second attempt. Trevor asks for a check and he’s wrong. He switches two letters and he is correct and gets his clue. Dessie and Tim are out in the buggies and Daniel and Sarah are right behind.

     

    Conor is back to try to find the word again. He has found the numbers on the letters and asks for a check and he is correct. Alex and Conor head out. Shawn can’t figure out what’s wrong with his word. He has all the letters in order, except for the two O’s. Shawn goes back out to look at the letters again.

     

    Jessica and Cody hit the mat in second place and Phil notes they took a detour and ran a few extra miles than necessary. Cody apologizes to Jessica and Henry and Even run in and hit the mat at third. Trevor and Chris come in and are the fourth team to arrive.

     

    Shawn is frustrated because others are getting it and he’s stuck right now. All that is left is Shawn and Cedric and April and Sarah. Shawn doesn’t want to go back out. Alex and Conor are on the mat in fifth place. Shawn helps Sarah and she gets the right answer because her O’s are in the right place. Shawn goes back and looks at his and says it’s the same as hers.

     

    Shawn is beyond frustrated and he goes back and looks at Sarah’s again. Cedric encourages him to get it done. Shawn has finally realized one of the O’s has the accent and switches them and he is correct.

     

    We see some teams asking for directions. Cedric and Shawn are arguing because Shawn says Cedric is driving too fast and he can’t see signs and Cedric says Shawn should tell him the word.

     

    Joey and Tim have hit the mat in sixth place. Cedric and Shawn are at the square. Brittany and Lucas hit the mat in seventh place. Cedric and Shawn realize they aren’t in last when they see Dessie and Kayla who are looking for where to park. Cedric and Shawn have hit the mat in 8th place. However, they are not allowed to get any help from a teammate at a roadblock, which he did because Cedric yelled out encouragement to pay attention to P’s and O’s. Shawn says he didn’t hear Cedric but Phil says it doesn’t matter. They have incurred a 30 minute penalty.

     

    Eric and Daniel are officially team number 8. April and Sarah have arrived at the square and Dessie and Kayla are struggling to park. The girls have finished their task and are on their way to the pitstop. Phil pulls Shawn and Cedric over to the mat with 30 seconds left on their penalty clock. If the girls don’t make it to the mat before that time is up, Cedric and Shawn will still be in the race. Phil says it has never been this close.

     

    Phil says this is as close as it gets, but he is pleased to announce Cedric and Shawn are team number 9 and now there is a foot race for the last spot. Phil says they’ve never had a finish this close as all four girls scramble for the mat. It is a photo finish and we see snapshots. Phil says Dessie was the last to land on the mat. April and Sarah are team number 10 and unfortunately, Dessie and Kayla are the last team to arrive and they have been eliminated from the race.

     

    Dessie and Kayla are bummed and wanted to continue racing, but it was an amazing experience.

     

    This season on The Amazing Race, the most competitive cast of racers square off in an epic season unlike any other. Where they’ll face the first ever head-to-head competition and other shocking twists. Who will win season 30 of The Amazing Race?           


  4. Desi is first and she says hats off to Chrissy for winning the individual immunities and hats off to Ben for finding idols. Then she says Ryan, it seems like everything they could beat you and that’s why you are sitting there. She wants to give Ryan an opportunity to convince them what he did to sit there and his social game.

     

    Ryan responds to Desi that everything emanated from his social game. He found the advantage day one on the boat and he used that to build a relationship with Chrissy and Devon. Ryan also takes credit for the alliance of seven and says he made that alliance because he had good inclinations and he had to depend on the social relationships he built with people.

     

    Ashley addresses Ryan and wants to know if that’s true, why he never had a strategic conversation with her. She says that shows a fault in his social game because he put her on the jury.

     

    Ryan responds to Ashley that he didn’t have a strategic relationship with her, but he relied on the social aspect that was parlayed through Devon.

     

    Joe asks Devon if he can co-sign any of that and Devon says yeah. Lauren says Ryan is sitting in the hot seat and Devon might make or break what happens. Devon says up until the final 7, Ryan’s social play was used through him. JP asks if there was communication with Ryan when he got blindsided and they flipped and Devon says Ryan did not know about that. Ryan agrees he did not know about the rogue vote and JP was one of his closest allies.

     

    Joe says he’s glad they started with the outwit because he didn’t realize Ryan was the puppet master and he respects the play. Joe says to Ben that his social game was horrible and his and Chrissy’s relationship was like butting heads. Joe says they are both fans and they just focused on challenges and idols and they forgot about the social aspect of Survivor.

     

    Ben owns up to the fact that his social game was difficult for him and he’s out there learning how to interact with people and how to better himself. Chrissy thinks she had a totally different social game and she got to the F3 by staying loyal to her alliances the whole time. Her game was not to go out and make a million different moves and she did try and get to know each of them individually.

     

    Joe wants to know what Chrissy knows about him and she mentions that a reason he doesn’t want to get married is because of his parents divorce when he was young and that was horrible for him. Jeff asks where Cole weighs in on the social part of the game. Cole wants to start with Ben and says he knows he was a target of Ben’s based on food issues. Cole wants Ben to clear his name because he painted him as thief because of the food.

     

    Ben says he did paint him as a target because he was physically strong and that was the only way he could get people to turn on him. Ryan says it went beyond that because he was painting a target on his back. Ben says it was a strategic move. Ben says he knew he had to work on his social game. Ben says he sat on the beach with Lauren and Devon and told them stories he hasn’t told anyone else and he’s opened up with Mike.

     

    Ashley says Ben just said he told people stories, but Chrissy reached out and asked questions because she genuinely wanted to know them and that’s huge. Ashley remembers hearing some of Chrissy’s conversations and thinking she was a genius. Chrissy mentions about Cole’s score on the ACT’s and Ryan says she’s just throwing out random facts.

     

    Cole says you can go making friendships with people, but it’s how you use those in the game and he doesn’t know any of that about her. Chrissy says getting to know people was truly part of her game play and learning how people played. Chrissy and Ryan start bickering back and forth about their social games. Cole says the back and forth over small stuff doesn’t make any impact on their decisions. Desi wants to say something to each of them on a human level and remind them they need to take a step back and realize this is just a game and outside the game they can still trust the people around them. Lauren thanks Desi for saying that and says she was saying that to all of them.

     

    Jeff says we move on to the outplay part of the game, how they respond to the conditions of the game. Cole says as a wilderness guy himself, those survival skills are important to him. Cole says Ben did great finding idols and Chrissy killed challenges, but Ryan didn’t do anything around camp. Ryan says he can’t argue any of those points. Ryan says he had never been camping before and he knew he couldn’t be a provider like JP and he didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes.

     

    Desi says she had never done a lot of different survival skills, so that isn’t an excuse. Lauren says Ryan said he didn’t want to mess up, but neither did anyone else. Chrissy starts pointing out that Ryan never went for water.

     

    Joe says let’s get to the advantages and the idols. Ryan says day 1 he found the advantage on the boat and he used that to advance to the end of the game. He then begins to talk about finding the hidden immunity idol and the chaos ensued and Cole says that was well-played.

     

    Ashley says she’d like to say she’s proud of every female, as well as Chrissy who blew them all away with winning four immunity idols and she wants to give her credit for that. Chrissy says she was terrified when challenges started because she was never athletic when she was young and she found the courage to do that. Lauren also congratulates her and Joe says we have a queen and he respects her four immunity challenge wins.

     

    Joe says he loved seeing Ben last night build fire and he liked that Ben worked to find idols because his back was against the wall. Ben says he chose to get up early every morning to find those idols. Desi says the better questions is there was a point where Ben was with four others, how did they let him go alone to find idols. Ben says he was one step ahead of them all the way. Chrissy agrees that was a game flaw for all four of them.

     

    Jeff says time to move on to the outlast part of the game. Jeff says this is their last moment to make sure the jury will put their name down. Ryan goes first and says he knew he couldn’t win challenges to get through the game so he knew he had to build the social relationships to get him through. He says he went to 13 of the 15 tribal councils and his name was never on the chopping block. Ryan thinks he had more deals to the end than anyone else and he never gave up and that’s why he is sitting there.

     

    Mike asks Ryan what he learned playing the game. Ryan says he learned a lot and he got rejuvenated when his dad came out. He realizes about himself he values the simplicities of life, of having people close to him and his family.

     

    Ben says his will be short and sweet. He says he hand in putting every single one of them there because they were a hurdle and a threat to his game and he respects them, but he had to put them on the jury. Mike says he played one of the best games in Survivor history and he’d like to know why Ben should be the winner tonight. Joe says he wants to piggy back that questions because it seems like Ben fought so hard when his back was against the wall and he’s kind of giving up now when he’s so close to winning. Joe says he knows he’s a fight and he needs more.

     

    Ben says the reason he should be the sole survivor is even after being deemed a king and a dictator by Chrissy, he never quit looking and he never quit battling. He didn’t get put there, he brought himself there. Ben talks a little about his PTSD and he wants veterans to know you can get through it, but you have to work hard.

     

    Chrissy’s turn and she says she came into the game underestimating herself and she realized she needed to acknowledge she was awesome. She thinks she truly did make connections with each of them and she played a clean game without leaving destruction behind. She continues all moms are heroes because they put people before themselves and they are also heroes and also hustlers. Her game and who she is was all part of that and you never give up on your dreams.

     

    Jeff says a very healthy, candid tribal. He gives them a minute to think and vote. Live, Jeff says it’s down to the jury votes and asks a girl in the audience who she would vote for and he gives her a parchment and pen and asks her to write the name down so they can see if she agrees with the jury.

     

    Jeff reminds the jury they are voting for the winner, whoever they believe played the best game. It’s time to vote. We see Lauren’s vote for Ben. Lauren hopes Ben helps a lot of veterans. We see Devon’s vote for Ryan. Devon wishes him luck and hopes he wins. We see Cole hesitating over the parchment. We see Ashley’s vote for Chrissy. Ashley says she has reasons to not vote for any, but she believes Chrissy is a representative of their season. Jeff thanks them for a great season of Survivor.

     

    We are now live and Jeff thanks them all again. Jeff says to Ryan that he played with such heart, they could see it beating through his chest. Jeff says to Ben his back has been up against the wall and we could see what he was playing for. Jeff says to Chrissy, a working mom applied for 16 years and she dominated and set records and they saw a different side of her when her husband came out. Three completely different reasons for playing, but they all got them there.

     

    Time to read the votes!  First vote, Ben. Ryan. Chrissy. Chrissy. 2 votes Chrissy, 1 vote Ben, 1 vote Ryan. Ben. Ben. 3 votes Ben, 2 votes Chrissy, 1 vote Ryan. The winner of Survivor…Ben!

     

    Ben goes to hug everyone and Jeff calls him over and congratulates him. He hands the check to him and calls his family over for hugs. Jeff calls the family over and they show a recap of all the moves Ben had to make to get to the end and earn the win.

     

    Jeff asks Ben if he remembers how arduous the journey was and Ben says it was so hard. He fought day and night and he says you had to go out and look for the idol, and keep looking. He says he never gave up and kept looking and the early bird gets the worm he guesses.

     

    Jeff wants to give a sneak peek of next season and we see a very quick flash with the words: One bad decision can haunt you forever.

     

    Jeff goes back to the girl in the audience and she wrote down Ben’s name and agreed with the jury. Everyone is now onstage for the reunion. Jeff says Ben, every hero needs a worthy adversary and he had one in Chrissy. Jeff remembers that first challenge when Chrissy was sick and he wants to know if when she got out there if it was overwhelming. Chrissy says she was terrified that she wouldn’t do as well as she could have.

     

    Jeff says Ryan, everyone joked about his tiny body. Did the lack of food surprise even him. Ryan says yeah, the deprivation was a complete shock to him. Ryan says it’s so real, but you sign up for it and you can’t prepare for it. Ryan says he came up short, but he proved to himself he can hang with the best.

     

    Jeff says sometimes things that are happening in society are brought into the game. He says we seen it last year with Zeke. Jeff says this year we had another emerging story line and we see a clip of Ben discussing his PTSD. Jeff asks if Ben has heard from a lot of people. Ben says a lot of vets reached out to him and they understand what he was going through.

     

    Jeff says Ben was the only person up there that kept a secret this season and Survivor kept one too. They bring out three of Ben’s former marine buddies. Jeff says this is a legit surprise and he tracked some of them down to see what impact Ben’s story had on them and they wanted to come to the finale. They say when they last saw Ben, he wasn’t in a good place and it’s not just for them, but any vet who is struggling seeing Ben be successful can be helpful.

     

    Jeff says if you’re struggling with PTSD reach out and ask for help. www.ptsd.va.gov

     

    Jeff says when the started the season it was supposed to be a season of secrets with the advantages and idols, but then no one could keep a secret. After we see a clip, Jeff pulls out the shell Mike threw in the fire from Lauren’s advantage. Jeff asks if she regretted that or if it was a move that just didn’t work. Lauren says yeah, she regrets it. Can she have it back. Jeff holds up the square idol from Survivor: China and talks about James having two idols and getting voted out with both of them. Jeff says they are clues to next season. Bad decisions from former players coming back to haunt. All will be revealed when they return.

     

    Jeff says for the 36th season, they decided to do something that speaks to the past 35 seasons and gets at the reason Survivor is so fun to watch, but difficult to play. Survivor, it is the most complicated game of social politics every created. There is no one to rely on, no one to trust. Everything rests on your ability to make the right decision at the right time because one bad decision can haunt you forever. This is Survivor: Ghost Island. The graveyard for bad Survivor decisions and after 35 seasons, there have been a lot of them. For the first time ever, a new group of players will have a chance to reverse the curse of some of the worst decisions in Survivor history. An entire season centered around the bad decisions of past players. Using the actual haunted advantages and idols that did them in. Will these new players learn from the mistakes from others? Or will the past come back to haunt again? Join us this spring for Survivor: Ghost Island.

Tonight, we have four finalists and they will each sing three times, a new cover, a special duet with their coach, and a brand new original single. Every vote counts and voting is now open for all artists on all platforms.

     

    Let’s kick off the finale with Team Adam’s Addison Agen. Carson and Adam talk with Addison about her progression throughout the experience. Addison is going to sing Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw. Adam says Addison has the ability to make everything sound like it’s hers.

     

    Jennifer says Addison, that’s what moments like this are about. When you break down and make it more real to us and allow us in to experience that moment with you. Jennifer says Addison is humble, beautiful, and kind.

     

    Adam says in a way, the fact Addison lost it at the end was beautiful because her connection to life is more important than her connection to music. To say he is proud is the understatement of the year and every time she gets up there, she blows him away.

     

    We’re going to continue with the first original single of the night from Team Blake’s Chloe Kohanski. Her song is called Wish I Didn’t Love you. Blake says every lyric and note sounds like something Chloe experienced. Chloe says she feels connected to the song because it tells a story. Blake says he thinks this is the right original song and he loves it.

     

    Blake says America, he wants you to think of every superstar you can remember in music and remember those people aren’t like anyone else. And then he wants America to think about Chloe’s performance. Blake says ladies and gentleman, this is a superstar right here.

     

    Next will be the first duet, Blake and his finalist Red. They are going to sing I’m Gonna Miss Her by Brad Paisley. Blake says he thinks Red is more country than he is. Red says working with Blake has been like hanging out with his brother. Blake says they are going to have fun on stage.

     

    Just a reminder that all artists who have a song in the top 10 on iTunes at the close of voting get their votes multiplied by 5. Now a debut song for Team Miley’s Brooke Simpson. Brooke’s song is called What Is Beautiful. Brooke says she loves this song and it rings true to where she is right now in her life. Miley says she sings with such conviction.

     

    Adam says he has loved Brooke since day 1. Adam loves watching her go through all this to see where she’s going to wind up. He’s happy this moment culminates for her in who she is and this song represented who she wants to be.

     

    Miley says this moment right here is what she meant when she said Brooke is a necessary artist. Miley says everyone has to vote because this girl is the voice and she is a superstar.

     

    Next, we have another duet, Adam and Addison and they are going to sing Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. Adam says this song is an actual duet that will pull at your heart strings. Addison says she never thought she’d call Adam Levine a friend.

     

    Our final four are one step away from winning it all. Next, Miley joins Brooke for the perfect collaboration. They are going to sing Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus. Brooke says Miley has helped her grow so much.

     

    Let’s continue immediately with a debut song with Team Blake’s country singer, Red Marlow. Red is going to sing a song called I Pray. Red wrote the song with a friend of his. Red says even though it’s a sad song, it can also be a celebration. Blake says it’s going to be a good one and he deserves to be here.

     

    Jennifer says anyone who can get on stage and sing a song called I Pray is alright by her. Jennifer says she’s a fan of Red and she’s not surprised to see him in the final and she thinks he represented country well.

     

    Blake says the reason Red is in the final is because of simple relatability and with this song, a song about real life experience, was great. Blake says Red is a country star.

     

    We’re going to continue with an awesome duet, Blake and Chloe. They are going to perform You Got It by Roy Orbison. Blake says Chloe is the same as you see on television.

     

    Next Is Red Marlow. Red will be singing Make you feel my love by Bob Dylan. Red says he will be doing Garth Brooks cover of the song. Blake says Red is swing for the fence on this song.

     

    Blake says he was thinking about how Red can just set on the stage with nothing but his guitar and his voice it blows him away.

     

    We will continue with Brooke Simpson singing a classic Christmas song. Brooke will be singing O Holy Night. Brooke says she’s love this song since she was little and when she sings it she thinks of her family. Miley says she knows how much this song means to Brooke and she thinks the audience will enjoy the vocal arrangement.  

     

    Jennifer says that is one of her favorite Christmas song and she is happy about the performance. Miley says that she can’t express how much she wants everyone at home to vote for Brooke.

     

    Next up is Addison Agen. Addison will be sing Tennessee Rain, her original song. Adam tells her to sing it like a powerful women.

     

    Jennifer says Addison is only 16 and just knows when to be passionate about the song and to soften the notes. Adam says all the songs she has sang have best represent her as an artist and a person.

     

    We’re going to close the finale with the rocker from team Blake Chloe Kohanski. Chloe will be singing Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Cranes. Blake says Chloe is the total package from this show.

     

    Blake says ladies and gentlemen, we have a superstar in front of us. Blake says vote for Chloe. As Carson closes the show Blake yells Vote for Chloe.


  7. This is the semi-finals and we are live as the coaches take their seats. Eight semi-finalists will perform twice, a new song by themselves and they are also pairing up with each other for special duets. Both performances are eligible for your votes and tomorrow will be the biggest elimination of the season, only four will move on. Every vote counts and you alone will determine who moves on to next week’s finale.

     

    Before they start they send their condolences to those dealing with the fires in Southern California and give a shout out to the men and women fighting those fires.

     

    They are going to kick off the night with Team Adam’s country singer, Adam Cunningham. Adam is going to perform I’m Already There by Lonestar. Coach Adam says Adam C. couldn’t have picked a better song for where he is in the competition right now.

     

    Blake says he’s always loved that song and it’s a great song choice and he’s glad Adam C. is choosing his own songs now. Blake says he could tell that’s the kind of lyric that means something to him and he sang the hell out of it.

     

    Coach Adam says that’s as good a response from Blake as he could hope for. Coach Adam says Adam C. has been such an amazing surprise because he fights back despite having his back against the wall. Adam thinks he’s one of the top contenders in the competition.

    Team Blake’s Red Marlow is next to sing a song that means a lot to him and his coach. Red is singing Go Rest on That Mountain by Vince Gill. Blake says that he loves the song and the song is a load to take on. Blake also says he thinks Red could show his true talent in this song.

     

    Miley says that she remembers back to the blinds when she graveled for him. Miley says that everyone felt him sing that song.

    Keisha Renee from Team Blake is coming to the stage. Keisha is singing What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts. Blake says he wants to see what Keisha can do with this song.

     

    Miley says all of the songs Keisha have sung were some of her favorites and she is happy that she did those songs her way because it should always be like that when she sings.

     

    Blake says he doesn’t know what else she could’ve done to get into the final 4.

     

    Incredible back to back performances going down right now. First, a big song by two country singers who form the perfect voice duo, Adam Cunningham and Red Marlow.

They sing Can’t You See by The Marshall Tucker Band. If you want to vote for Adam and Red tweet #AdamRedDuet

     

    We’re going to continue with Team Blake’s alternative rocker, Chloe Kohanski. Chloe is going to perform I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner. Blake says people are drawn to her because of the sound of her voice. Blake thinks this is the song that can get her to top 4.

     

    Blake says he wants to go on record, this IS the biggest night she’s had on the show so far. Blake says America, if you recorded this rewind the show and listen to her sing it again and tell him if that’s not the most iconic voice they’ve had on the show.

     

    Now, two heartfelt vocalists team up for the first time Addison and Keisha. Keisha says Addison is just amazing and Addison says the first time she heard Keisha she was shocked and in tears. Addison and Keisha sing Strong Enough by Sheryl Crow. If you want to vote for Addison and Keisha tweet #AddisonKeishaDuet.

     

    We’ll continue with Team Jennifer’s hard-working vocalist, Noah Mac. Noah is going to sing River by Bishop Briggs. Noah sees this song as the modern day Eye of the Tiger.

     

    Miley says Noah brought something youthful and modern to the show that she’s not sure they’ve ever seen before.

     

    Jennifer says she is very proud. She says the way he commands the stage and believes in himself and he can deliver performances like that.

     

    Next is Team Addison’s singer/songwriter, Addison Agen. Addison is going to sing Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell. Adam tells her to take her time because it’s emphatic but laid back. Adam thinks Addison is the Voice.

     

    Blake says he such a fan of Addison’s and he really appreciates being the flagship person on the show for teenagers and singer/songwriter torch she’s carrying. Blake says she’s beyond her years.

     

    Adam says he would rather Addison sing the songs that mean the most to her and her fans. Adam says this girl is the Voice and she’s even beyond that and she’s one of the most special gifts he’s had the pleasure of working with.

     

    We’re closing out the night with Team Miley’s only artist who is putting everything on the line, Brooke Simpson. Brooke is going to sing Faithfully by Journey. Miley wants this performance to be focused on her vocals. Miley says this show is about the Voice and she sticks by and thinks it’s Brooke.

     

    Miley says if Brooke isn’t in the finale, then she doesn’t know what this show is. Miley says if this show is about the voice, if it’s about finding that vocal talent, your winner is standing right here.

    Blake says he’ll make it simple for him. Blake says if you’re not in next week’s episode, or in the finals, that’s ridiculous because he’s such an incredible vocalist.

     

    Jennifer says she lost her shoe and Carson says they hired someone to find her shoes. Jennifer says she is so beyond proud of him and he represents everything the voice is about. And if he’s not here next week and the week after, then she doesn’t know why they are there in the first place.

     

    We’re going to continue with Team Adam’s country rocker who is showing a different side, Adam Cunningham. Adam C. is going to sing Maybe It Was Memphis by Pam Tillis. Adam L. says this is a perfect song for him and he thinks Adam C. will keep knocking people out until the bitter end.

     

    Blake says what an incredible, iconic country song and he says it was a great idea to sing the song. Miley says congratulations on a great performance and that there are no hard feelings from last week.

     

    Coach Adam says he knew last week that Adam C. would pick his own song. Coach Adam also says that everyone please vote for this man.

     

    Up next to perform is Noah Mac from Team Jennifer. Noah will be singing Ordinary World by Duran Duran. Noah says he picked this song so he could strip it down and just sing a beautiful song. Jennifer says his star keeps rising and rising to the top.

    Shi’ Ann Jones from Team Jennifer is next to the stage. Shi’ Ann is going to be singing Diamonds by Rihanna.

Blake says two people are going home this week and if there’s ever a time to pull out all the stops, this is it.  

     

    Jennifer says what could you possibly say after all of that. Jennifer says there isn’t much else to be said other than congratulations on an amazing performance.

     

    Adam says he is so proud of her because she was so incredible today. Adam says it came to his attention there were some really hateful comments pointed in her direction by some really sad cowards and he wants her to know she was speaking directly to them letting them know none of that affects her.

     

    Blake gives a standing ovation and he says she just separated herself from the rest of the pack.

     

    Up next is Team Miley’s country singer who’s unleashing her rock side, Ashland Craft. Ashland is going to perform I Hate Myself for Loving You by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Miley says this is going to be so bomb, she’s excited.

     

    Jennifer says she is so proud of her. She’s always been a fan and she’s happy she found her stride.

     

    Miley says you can tell who’s team Miley around here. Miley loved this performance and she loved seeing her with an all-female band. She says Ashland did an awesome job.

     

    Next is Team Miley’s powerhouse, Brooke Simpson. Brooke is going to sing Amazing Grace. Miley wants everyone who is spending time with their families for the holidays to download this version.

     

    Jennifer says the spirit is universal and she has a beautiful gift and she touched their hearts. Jennifer is so glad to see a voice like Brooke’s to get this kind of platform.

     

    Blake says this night has been stacking up to where it can’t get much better, but then Brooke comes out and takes it to the next level.

     

    Miley says she loves and cares about her team so much and she knows she won’t have to worry about her team this week because Brooke is not going anywhere.

     

    Now, it’s time for Team Blake’s classic country singer, Red Marlowe. Red is going to take the stage with That’s What I Love About Sunday by Craig Morgan. Blake says this song is made for him.

     

    Jennifer says Red is so charming and he can do no wrong. She thinks he is all that and then some.

     

    Blake says he’s going to be around the show for a long time because of what Jennifer just said. Blake says he has a gift for telling a story.

     

    Our last artist of the night is Addison Agen from Team Adam with an unexpected song choice. Addison is going to sing Lucky by Britney Spears. Adam says it shows creativity and you just have to trust the artist. Adam thinks Addison will hit number one this week and make a name for herself.

     

    Miley says Addison just hit a soft spot in her and she’s so creative and she did a great job.

     

    Adam says there are a lot of great singers in this competition, but he truly believes Addison is the best artist in the competition. Adam says she is the real deal and inspirational to so many people out there and she’s a class act and one of the best singers he knows.

    We’re going to kick things off with Team Miley’s alternative soul singer who’s reintroducing an important genre to her fans, Janice Freeman. Miley tells Janice her fans suggested the song Shine by Collective Soul and Miley really likes that song choice for Janice. Miley says this song has never been done on the show before.

     

    Adam says he didn’t even really like that song that much until she sang it and that’s amazing. Adam says she is not normal, but normal is boring.

     

    Miley says she’s so proud of her and she really does believe there is a light shining down on her tonight.

     

    Up next is Team Blake’s artist who brought his biggest fan, his dad, to rehearsal this week, Red Marlowe. Blake thinks the fans chose The Dance by Garth Brooks for Red because they have faith in him.

     

    Jennifer says it’s singers that teach singers like her how powerful it is when you can silence a crowd. Jennifer says she appreciates that and it shows his star power and the power of music, which he possesses.

     

    Blake says he loves what Jennifer is saying because he did have the crowd captivated and he’s such a great storyteller because he sings with pure, simple honesty. Blake says you can’t fake that and he loves that about him.

     

    Team Jennifer’s 15-year old singer is next, Shi’Ann Jones. Shi’Ann’s fans picked the song Listen by Beyonce. Jennifer says this song carries a lot of weight and Shi’Ann has what it takes to perform the song as long as she allows herself to come out.

     

    Miley says she is a total princess tonight and that was a beautiful performance. Miley says her low tones are magic and then she goes into the higher range and she gives them everything. Miley says she believed every word she just said and she had an awesome night.

     

    Jennifer says Shi’Ann is so young, but it’s the sign of an old soul when you can tell a story. Jennifer says that was so relatable and powerful. Jennifer says America has to vote for her.

     

    We continue with Team Adam’s country rocker who is energized from his big save last week, Adam Cunningham. Adam says he’s doing a classis American song, American Girl by Tom Petty. Adam L. says this song is perfect for Adam C’s voice.

     

    Blake says he was surprised Adam was in the bottom two and he would be shocked this week if he was there because he delivered the kind of vocal that shows he needs to be in the competition until the end.

     

    Adam L. says he is so proud of him and it’s up to America at home to vote for him. He thinks Adam C. gave America a lot more and he thinks Adam should be safe no matter what.

     

    Next is a North Carolina powerhouse from Team Miley who is singing a song that showcases her artistry and honors her heritage, Brooke Simpson. Brooke is going to perform What About Us by P!nk. Brooke wants people at home to feel like they’re in the room and feeling the adrenaline rush.

     

    Adam says he has always loved Brooke and he always enjoys watching how she connects to the material. Adam says she took P!nk’s song and made it apply to her and that was very powerful and so great.

     

    Miley says she looks forward to Brooke’s performances, but she says America can look forward to Brooke’s record when she makes one. Miley says she made that song her own so perfectly this week and she’s so proud of her.

     

    We’ll continue with a massive song chosen for Team Jennifer’s soul singer, Davon Fleming. The fans selected the song I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston for Davon. Jennifer thinks he will do it justice and it will be a beautiful tribute to Whitney.

     

    Blake says Davon has been one of his favorites, but as a coach for another team Davon is a huge thorn in his side. Blake doesn’t think anyone else in the competition sings with the dynamics Davon does.

     

    Jennifer says she is blown away by Davon. She says it is not easy for a male vocalist to sing a female song and Adam interrupts and says it’s impossible. Jennifer says the level he sings on, she doesn’t think it can get any higher and she’s excited to see him continue on.

     

    Next is Team Miley’s country singer who is going to put her spin on a country hit, Ashland Craft. Miley has selected the song Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band. Ashland says she loves this song because it’s relatable to her. Miley says if Ashland performs this song the way she thinks she can, then it will change her life forever.

     

    Adam says he’d like to give her an A for her performance and she didn’t make any mistakes. Adam also says he never heard that song done so well by a female artist.

     

    Miley says she is proud of her confidence and she enjoyed that she had fun on the stage.

     

    Next to the stage is Team Adam’s, Addison Agen. Addison will be singing A Case Of You by Joni Mitchell. Addison said this song is something she enjoys singing about. Adam says she is born to sing this song and that she feels everything she sings. Adam says that she is one of her favorite singers right now.

     

    Jennifer says that great is great and Addison is beyond great. Jennifer says she is gifted with a great voice, she also says she doesn’t care if she is on Adam’s team and that this is a competition she deserves votes.

     

    Adam says the audience is subdued because of her moving performance. Adam says that this performance showed how talented her voice is and that she is one of his favorite voices right now.

     

    Next is Team Blake’s, Keisha Renee. Kiesha is singing It Matters To Me by Faith Hill. Blake says Faith Hill has a very soulful voice and he thinks Kiesha could really do this song. Keisha says she wants to deliver this performance to her fans.

     

    Miley says she should see herself on top of the charts again this week. Miley says she has to go home now and listen to Faith Hill after the show.

     

    Blake says she delivered a very solid country performance tonight and he is very proud of her.

     

    Up next to the stage is Team Jennifer’s Noah Mac. Noah will be singing Dancing On My Own Calum Scott. Noah says he wants to strip the song down to the basics. Jennifer says that she wants to see Noah touch people all over the world.

     

    Adam says one of the greatest things about you is that you don’t expect that voice to come out of you. Adam says that he loved the modern performance that just happened.

     

    Jennifer says he was electric with the performance and that he owned the stage and that performance. Jennifer says she can’t wait to see him at the top of the charts again.

     

    Last to perform is Team Blake’s Chloe Kohanski. Chloe will be singing Total Eclipse Of The Heart by Bonnie Tyler. Blake says anytime she does a cover it still sounds like Chole. Chloe says her fans seem to understand what kind of music she enjoys singing and is very happy with the song choice.

     

    Miley says she is so proud of her week after week. Miley says she is so happy she is still so original and that she delivered that song so well.

     

    Blake says he thinks that she the front runner in this competition and she set the bar so high you can’t reach it.

  13. It is a night of special dedications and our first live show of season 13! The top 12 will all take the stage tonight and tomorrow one artist will go home, no matter what team he or she is on. Voting is open for all artists on all methods.

     

    Kicking the show off is Team Miley’s North Carolina powerhouse, Brooke Simpson. Brooke is going to perform the song Praying by Ke$ha. Brooke wants to dedicate this song to America and she hopes it not only reaches their ears, but their hearts as well.

     

    Jennifer says she doesn’t know where to start with Brooke. She says what Brooke did not tonight was represent the power of music and showed what the show was about.

     

    Miley says JHud just took the words from her mouth. Miley says it is such an honor as coaches to be the ones to get to feed their spirit and soul and give them the platform to show the world who they are. She thinks Brooke might have stolen the show.

     

    Carson is announcing thanks to their friends at Toyota the four finalists will each debut an original single during the finale on December 18.

     

    We’re going to continue with Team Blake’s Nashville singer, Red Marlowe. Red is going to sing Church on Cumberland Road by Shenandoah. Red is dedicating this song to his dad because he was the guy teaching him how to play guitar.

     

    Adam says Red, that was awesome. Adam says authenticity is number one for him and you don’t need to be Blake Shelton to know that’s as real as it gets.

     

    Blake says he knew Red was a great singer, but it was the first time he seen the performance side of what he does. Blake says he had so much energy and he can move, and it was so sexy. Blake says he did Shenandoah proud and made country music happy.

     

    Adam and Blake made a bet. The bet is if Blake sells more albums than Adam, then Adam has to call Blake Captain Country. If Adam sells more albums than Blake, then he has to call him the Greatest There Ever Was. Whoever loses the best has to carry out the on the very next live show (tonight) this season. They shook on it and Carson is going to reveal the results.

     

    Carson reveals both albums were released on November 3 and in the first week, Blake’s album landed at number four on the Billboard top 200. Adam’s album, the Maroon 5 album, came in at number two. Adam is the winner, so Blake must call him the Greatest There Ever Was for the rest of the show.

     

    Back to the top 12’s dedications with Team Jennifer’s pop artist from Kentucky, Shi’Ann Jones. Shi’Ann is going to take the stage with Vision of Love by Mariah Carey. Shi’Ann is dedicating this song to her coach, Jennifer, because she’s been there since the blinds helping her come out of her shell.

     

    Blake says he is super jealous right now because Shi’Ann picked a perfect time to become the highlight of the show because that was so good.

     

    Jennifer says Shi’Ann touched her heart because she can see she’s singing for home and she can relate. She is so proud of Shi’Ann.

     

    Just a reminder if an artist’s song is in the top 10 on iTunes at the close of voting, their votes are multiplied by 5.

     

    Next is Team Adam’s Iowa soul singer, John Mero. John is going to perform Why I Love You by Major. John is dedicating this song to his hometown Des Moines and his church because they supported him so much throughout his life and career.

     

    Miley says that was the perfect song choice for him and that was how he needed to start the live show and he just earned a huge fan base. That was the perfect performance and she’s his number one fan for now. Carson says they need to get a quick camera shot of Jennifer Hudson holding her shoe and that says a million words.

     

    Adam says he wants to tell everyone else why he’s special. He’s not just special because he’s a technically amazing singer, but he modernizes it so much and that’s why he thinks he’s unbelievable. Adam is so blown away and he is incredible.

     

    Next is Team Miley’s South Carolina singer, Ashland Craft. Ashland is going to sing Delta Dawn by Tanya Tucker. Ashland is going to dedicate this song to her parents because they have been the most supportive people in her life, and they’ve done everything for her she could ever ask for.

     

    Jennifer says she is so happy for Ashland and she’s happy she owned the stage and showed her confidence. Jennifer hopes she enjoyed herself because she was awesome.

     

    Miley says JHud has said she thinks Ashland was a star and Ashland showed that tonight. Miley says she knew things were going to go well when she sang Come On! and started clapping.

     

    The next artist to take the stage is Team Adam’s Nashville singer, Adam Cunningham. Adam is going to take the stage with Against All Odds by Phil Collins. Adam is dedicating this song to his family because they’ve seen him struggle as a musician and encourage him to keep going.

     

    Blake says he knows Adam’s probably frustrated with himself, but it was a heck of a recover and he delivered a hell of a performance. He’s going to pass it over to the Greatest There Ever Was now.

     

    Adam says we’re all human and we all makes mistakes. It not about the mistake, it’s about the recovery. Adam says he recovered and he got them, and he got everyone on board and they responded.

Miley thinks Brooke can do anything and she’s got some power behind her voice.

Blake says execution from beginning to the end was flawless. Jennifer says Brooke made her proud to be a woman. Miley says she did everything she needed to do and she didn’t do too much or too little.

     

    Miley’s comeback artist is Karli Webster. Karli is singing Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton. Miley says she thinks this is the perfect song for Karli because of her unique voice.

     

    Adam says this is your best performance and if it was his decision he would keep her in a heartbeat. Blake says she seemed to feel comfortable in the song. Miley says she has a very vintage sounding voice that no one else has in the industry right now.  

     

    Next up to the stage for team Miley is Adam Pearce. Adam will be singing Love Hurts by Nazareth. Miley says she hopes to hear a little more vulnerability in his voice with this song.

     

    Adam says he doesn’t have the same awesomeness as Adam for that song. Jennifer says that was the best song choice for his voice and she could tell he knew that. Miley says she knew he would pull the song off and it was a great performance.

     

    Next up for Miley is Ashland Craft. Ashland is going to sing When I Thing About Cheatin’ by Gretchen Wilson. Miley says she’s surprised to see Ashland so nervous because she didn’t see it in the beginning.

  15. Tonight, the playoffs continue! Tonight, Team Adam will perform, and Adam will have a daunting task by having to cut his team in half. Let’s meet Adam’s first artist and see how he prepared for tonight. Adam Cunningham is our first artist and he is going to sing Have a Little Faith In Me by Joe Cocker. Adam is surprised Blake let him go because this guy is the real deal and he wants Adam C. to come in and sing his heart out.

     

    Blake says he is so happy for Adam, but it makes him feel stupid for letting him go. Jennifer says she felt his energy and all she can do is shake her head, and that’s a compliment to him. Miley says judging from the coach and audience reaction, he’s becoming a fan favorite. Adam says he is one of those people that is just starting to emerge and he’s an amazing singer. That was incredible.

     

    Adam’s next artist is his bring back artist, Whitney Fenimore. Whitney is going to sing If It Makes You Happy by Sheryl Crow. Adam thinks Whitney is really special because she sings on-key and plays guitar.

     

    Blake says he feels like the complete first half of the song was a struggle. Miley thinks the song was good for her voice and she’s interested in what Adam has to say. Adam says the hardest part of the song she nailed perfectly, and she showed him some things he didn’t know about her. She did a great job.

     

    Next, is a pop singer with a song choice that could be the perfect fit, Emily Luther. Emily is going to sing the song Lovesong by The Cure. Adam says Emily is so focused and she has a gorgeous voice, the sky is the limit for her.

     

    Blake says every time she comes out she’s so professional and ready and poised. Jennifer says she loved that she came out and she felt more of her presence and personality. Adam says that was amazing and it was a huge step in the right direction for her and she is an amazing talent.

     

    Now, it’s time for Anthony Alexander who is going to show his romantic side tonight. Anthony is going to sing Perfect by Ed Sheeran. Adam says Anthony could really be a pop singer and have a good career. He says not everyone can sing like that.

     

    Blake says he still detects a lot of nerves but he is super talented. Jennifer says his voice is beautiful and she’s a big fan and she felt like he was singing to her. Miley says he did a great job. Adam says it’s not a matter of if he’ll be ready, it’s a matter of when. He is 100% proud of him.

     

    Now it’s a soul singer taking on a difficult song choice, John Mero. John is going to sing When We Were Young by Adele. Adam says John brings you into his world and he’s an emotional vocalist.

     

    Blake says his voice is seriously like a laser and cuts through everything, and he’s more than ready for this. Jennifer says the moment he just had is the moment everyone should have on stage. Adam says excellent. Adam says he is so multi-talented and he’s grown fond of him, but he did an incredible job.

     

    Last, is the 16-year old who is tackling a country classic, Addison Agen. Addison is going to sing Angel from Montgomery by Bonnie Raitt. Adam says people have compared Addison to Adele because of the presence she has when she sings. Adam says Addison is awesome.

     

    Blake says he loves Addison and she has so much character in her voice which normally comes from someone who has 20 years of experience. Jennifer wants to know what her Instagram is, and her youtube. Miley says she’s thinking dang, Addison could win this, and Adam will tease her if she does. Adam says there are so many things about what she does that are very subtle, and he thinks she’s so special and she’s a unicorn.

     

    Now it’s time to find out who’s going to be moving on to the live shows from Team Adam. Adam, Addison, Anthony, Emily, John, and Whitney are all on stage. Adam says they are all really tremendous and he’s so proud because they all fulfilled their obligations and they’ve impressed him.

     

    The first artist moving on is someone who he let go of would be a disservice…Addison.

     

    The second artist moving on is someone he can’t pull away from because there is more to discover, and he feels compelled to bring along…John.

     

    The last artist moving on is stumping Adam, he doesn’t know what he’s going to do. Adam says there is no real way to do this the correct way. He takes a deep breath and says he’s going to bring…Adam.


  16. Tonight, a special 3-night Voice event begins as the artists enter the Playoffs. Our coaches must decide which three artists will represent them in next week’s live shows where power shifts to America. Making the choice even harder, our coaches will each invite back one eliminated artist. This will be the first time our artist’s will have one on one coaching for their most crucial performances yet. Tonight, Team Blake and Team Jennifer take the stage. This is the last chance for the best of the best to show why they deserve a spot in the live shows. And with talent this impressive, picking three will be impossible. America, The Voice Playoffs start right now!

     

    Let’s meet Team Jennifer’s first artist, Davon Fleming. Davon is going to sing I Am Changing by Jennifer Hudson from the movie Dreamgirls. Jennifer says Davon is a smart singer and he likes big powerhouse songs, but it’s the Playoffs. Go big or go home. Davon gets a standing ovation from all four coaches and Miley hands Jennifer her shoe.

     

    Adam says if someone told him he had to sing that song tomorrow, he’d have a heart attack and run away. Adam hated that performance because it wasn’t on his team. Miley is pretty sure he’s going to the lives. Blake says he’s a pretty good singer. Jennifer says this is one of the hardest songs to do vocally but she knew he could do it.

     

    Now, it’s the Wisconsin pop singer Jennifer stole from Adam during The Knock-Outs, Hannah Mrozak. Hannah was given the song Learn to Let Go by Ke$ha. Jennifer says Hannah has a bit of Demi Lovato in her and she wants to help her tap into that.   

     

    Adam says it was hard to let her go but he thinks she’s in the right place now and he’s so proud of her. Blake says he was mesmerized by that performance and what a great time to do that. Jennifer says she’s so proud to see her living her moment. She feels like a star was born on this stage tonight.

     

    Jennifer brings back Lucas Holliday for a second chance. He is singing The Beautiful VOICE Ones by Prince & The Revolution. Jennifer thinks this will be a challenge for Lucas and pull out the performer in him.

     

    Miley says if they are going of what the room says, if it’s any sign of what the audience at home will be doing, Lucas that’s what’s up. Adam says that’s one of his favorite songs in the whole world. Blake liked it and he doesn’t know what just happened, but he wants to see it again and again. Jennifer says she loved that he completely committed himself to that song.

     

    Now it’s the 15-year old Kentucky powerhouse Shi’Ann Jones. She is singing Tattooed Heart by Ariana Grande. Jennifer says she wants her to come out of her shell a little bit more and she just loves her potential and her willingness to learn.

     

    Miley says her favorite part of Shi’Ann’s voice is the little squeaks in her voice. Blake says she is his favorite artist and there is something so incredibly special about her. Jennifer says when you have such a natural, pure talent, you can’t really deny it. She sees a star and she’s so proud of Shi’Ann.

     

    Now it’s the powerful New York vocalist and entertainer who is taking on a funk-soul classic tonight, Chris Weaver. Jennifer has given him California Soul by Marlena Shaw. Jennifer says Chris is a head-on collision of a freight train. He is beyond soulful he can deliver a song, and by the time he gets done you will believe it.

     

    Miley says Chris came here A+ and he’s still an A+. Adam says he’s glorious and he is someone who should never be let go of. Blake says they haven’t seen a softer Chris Weaver and that’s something to think about because he’s incredible. Jennifer says he has an undeniable presence and takes them on a journey from point A to point B.

     

    Now a classic rock hit by the 17-year old California soul artist, Noah Mac. Jennifer has given him In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins. Noah says it would be amazing to make the Top 12 and he’s going to do everything he can to make Jennifer proud.

     

    Miley says Team JHud has herself a finalist for sure. Great job! Adam says he has the only real true break out and he’s the front runner because he just took a leap. Blake would like to talk to the audience and he tells them he’s the guy who had Noah on his team and let him go. Jennifer says that was dramatic and powerful and had presence and he is a star.

     

    Now it’s time to find out who’s going to move on to the live shows, let’s bring out Team Jennifer! Chris, Davon, Hannah, Lucas, Noah, Shi’Ann stand with him and only 3 can represent Team Jennifer in the live shows. Jennifer is so proud of each of them and they made it extremely hard for her and she thinks all of them are stars.

     

    The first artist moving on is…Jennifer has to stay true to what the show is about, which is The Voice, so she has to pick…Davon.

     

    The next artist moving on is someone who has that star power. She has learned you have to be entertaining and you’d want to go to their concert, which leads her to this decision…Noah.

     

    One more artist will move on to the live shows. Miley says she’s stressed and Jennifer says everything is about the heart and this decision is based on who she thinks showed their heart the most…Shi’Ann.

     

    Do you agree with Jennifer’s choices? Are they the three you wanted to see in the live shows?

     

    Let’s meet Blake’s first playoff artist, Red Marlowe. Red is going to sing Chiseled in Stone by Vern Gosdin. Blake says Red has to sing this like it’s the last time he ever gets to sing. This will be hard one for him.

     

    Jennifer says he has such a strong presence and she wants to come to his concert one day. Miley wishes Red was on her team because she thinks he has a great chance of winning the show. Adam says he taps into truth and trust and he believes him when he sings, he’s a fan. Blake says he’s happy he did a classic and he couldn’t be more proud as a coach.

     

    Next up for team Blake is Chloe Kohanski. Chloe will be sing Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper. Blake says he has a lot of respect for Chloe. He also says that he thought he had his team chosen until he stole Chloe.

     

    Jennifer says she reminds her of singers like Madonna to Miley. Miley says she loved it and that she is a punk rock queen. Blake says she gave everyone a part of her voice. He also says dang it Chloe you were good.

     

    Blake’s comeback artist is Natalie Stovall. Natalie is singing Callin’ Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks. Blake says this is a perfect song for her to show off her voice. He also says it could be a bit difficult with her also playing the fiddle.

     

    Jennifer says she enjoyed the performance fiddle and all. Miley says she is such a fun performer. Adam says that it was the Blake-ist performance. Blake says she was the best comeback artist.

     

    Blake’s next artist is Esera Tuaolo. Esera will be singing How Do I Live by LeAnn Rimes. Blake says every time he sings we find something more about him.

     

    Jennifer says it was a bit rough in some parts but he still brought it home so she can’t be mad. Adam says there is something so tender about his voice. Blake says he has a beautiful range and that he did a good job.

     

    Blake’s next artist is Mitchell Lee. Mitchell will be singing Heaven by Bryan Adams. Blake says that Mitchell is the total package.

     

    Jennifer says Blake you have a tough decision ahead of him. Miley says she really liked this performance. Blake says it was a good performance and he gave 110%.

     

    Blake’s final artist is Keisha Renee. Keisha will be singing Love Can Build a Bridge by the Judds. Blake says this is one of his all-time favorite songs and he thinks the country listeners will love Keisha voice.

     

    Jennifer calls Keisha the bridge of gospel and country music. Adam says he’s never seen a performance like that and he hopes Blake isn’t dumb enough to let her go. Blake says he loves her and this is what he envisioned from the blinds.

     

    Alright, now it’s time to find out who is going to move on to the live shows from Team Blake. Chloe, Esera, Keisha, Mitchell, Natalie, and Red. Unfortunately, only three of you can represent Team Blake. Blake says he wants them all to realize and be proud of the fact they made it to the halfway point of the season and they are all on the right path.

     

    The first artist he is going to move forward it’s undeniable every time they get in front of the microphone something special happens and that’s…Keisha.

     

    The next artist Blake decided to move on is a great singer and someone musically working with this person makes a lot of sense…he has to pick Red.

     

    One more artist will move on. Blake says this is horrifying. He’s been doing this for 13 seasons and this is the toughest situation he has ever been in, this is crazy. The artist he has decided to move forward, it’s actually a surprise to him because he never saw it coming…is Chloe.


  17. Tonight, six artists, three winners, one final steal. Helping to prepare the teams, next season’s new coach, Grammy winning super star, Kelly Clarkson. The artist’s song choices will be critical. The artists must give it their all if they hope to make it into next week’s playoffs. The final night of Knock-Outs starts right now.

     

    Jennifer’s final pairing is Chris Weaver and Katrina Rose. Jennifer paired them because they both have big voices, and they can really interpret a song. Chris has selected the song I Put a Spell On You by Nina Simone. Kelly says Chris chose one of her favorite songs and it was a perfect song for him. Jennifer gives a few phrasing tips and she says it’s important for him to have a dramatic ending and have that moment.

     

    Katrina Rose is up to sing, and she has selected the song Zombie by the Cranberries. Kelly says she has the biggest voice and has such an energy she hasn’t seen yet. Kelly gives her a few tips on changing the melody to make it powerful and have her moment. Jennifer says Chris is contemporary and classic, but he has a lot of soul and Katrina could make this decision difficult.

     

    Miley says they were a perfect pairing because they are two of the biggest voice. Miley thinks it would be hard for Jennifer to walk away from Chris Weaver. Adam says Chris was a little more controlled, but Katrina was a flame thrower. Blake says he wouldn’t change a thing how Katrina performed, and every time Chris gets on stage he’s going to do something to cause shoes to be thrown.

     

    Jennifer says sometimes it’s the subtleties that make all the difference and then smack them with the power. Jennifer says then we have Chris who is a freight train and it’s just amazing. Carson says JHud, who is the winner of this Knock-Out. Jennifer says slowly the winner of this Knock-Out is…Chris.

     

    Blake’s final pairing is Megan Rose vs Red Marlow. Blake paired them together because he has to figure out which way he wants his team to move as far as what lane of country they want to concentrate on. Megan is going to perform Smoke Break by Carrie Underwood. Blake says this is an interesting song choice and shows Megan isn’t afraid to swing for the fence. Kelly says where she decides to go with that song, she needs to get emotional.

     

    Red Marlow is going to perform Outskirts of Heaven by Craig Campbell. Kelly loves Red because he’s authentic country music. Kelly says it’s such a beautiful story-telling song and he needs to get emotional to connect people with the song. Blake says he loves Red’s voice because it’s a throwback to the 90s, but Megan represents another lane within country music. Whoever steps into the part when they sing their song will win the Knock-Out.

     

    Adam says he can tell Red is just country and he’s an unfiltered, great country singer and when Megan hit those notes, it was like wow. Miley says he wore her red dress for him. She says he’s so established and natural and Megan was exactly what Miley was looking for because she was a little head-strong female, but she’d go with Red. Jennifer says Red is country and Megan hit that money note and she felt that.

     

    Blake says Megan, nerves might have played a part in the beginning of her performance, but he did get to see what she has. Blake feels like Red represents a time in country music from 15 years ago. Carson says tough decision, Blake, who is the winner of this competition? Blake says the winner is…Red.

     

    Our final Knock-Out pairing is from Team Adam, Anthony Alexander vs Hannah Mrozak. Anthony Alexander has chosen to sing Mercy by Shawn Mendes. Adam tells Anthony he needs to raise they key by a half step. Kellly says the most important thing is channeling the depth and connecting the audience emotionally.

     

    Hannah is up to sing for Kelly and she has chosen to sing Love on the Brain by Rihanna. Kelly says Hannah’s head voice is angelic. Kelly suggests singing with attitude and Adam says Hannah is stepping it up. Adam says Anthony needs to push himself over the top and really go for it this time.

     

    Blake thought Hannah did a very good job and she stayed on the notes, but he felt like Anthony’s nerves got the best of him and for him that one goes to Hannah. Jennifer agrees with Blake, but she thought Anthony was over passionate and she loved Hannah’s confidence. Miley felt like getting to Hannah was important and she would have preferred Hannah to have a mic stand and she thinks maybe Anthony just didn’t know what to do with himself while he sang.

     

    Adam says he hates his life. Adam says the minute he heard Anthony sing he knew he had something going on and there is an artistry to him that’s not fully there yet. Adam says Hannah is amazing and she pours a lot of passion into being the best singer she can be. Carson says who is the winner of this Knock-Out. Adam says he doesn’t know what he’s going to do. Adam says he’s just going to do it because he has to follow his heart and the winner of this Knock-Out is…Anthony.

     

    Miley wishes she had a steal and Hannah thanks Adam for this amazing opportunity. She goes to give Adam a hug and Jennifer slaps her button. Hannah is back on The Voice. Jennifer says when you have a story to tell, there is beauty in that and she thinks she can help Hannah use her life experiences to pull out emotion.

     

    Next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday is a 3-day Voice event! It’s time for The Voice playoffs.


  18. Tonight, the Knock-Outs continue as the pressure mounts for the artists, Kelly Clarkson continues to make an impact and to be impressed by the talent. The artist’s song choice is critical with Jennifer and Miley each holding one more steal. Which deserving artist will get a second chance? America, get ready to be knocked out!

     

    It’s night two of the Knock-Outs. As our coaches settle in, let’s check with Miley and key advisor, Kelly Clarkson. Miley’s first pairing is Brooke Simpson vs Stephan Marcellus, who she paired because they both have huge voices and they are both amazing performers. Brooke is going to sing Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin. Kelly says Brooke is an amazing artist. Stephan is going to sing Impossible by Shontelle. Kelly says Stephan has as good of voice as Brooke does.

     

    Adam says he loves Stephan’s vibe and he has a power to him that’s really cool. Adam says Brooke has gotten better every step of the competition. Adam says this will be a tough one for Miley because Brooke slapped that song and Stephan has that X factor. Jennifer says Brooke has a voice that’s beyond which is very rare, but then Stephan comes along behind Brooke and won the crowd over, but the show is The Voice and Brooke has a voice.

     

    Miley says that voice is really coming out of Brooke and Stephan’s journey on the show was an interesting one because his voice was enough to overcome mistakes. Carson says tough decision Miley, who’s the winner of this knock-out. Miley says this is a really tough decision. The winner of this knock-out is…Brooke.

     

    Blake’s first pairing of the night is Anna Catherine DeHart vs Mitchell Lee. He paired them together because they both have unique tones and he thinks they can really own the stage. Anna Catherine is going to perform Breathe by Faith Hill. Kelly says her tone is so pretty. Mitchell is going to perform I’ll Be by Edwin McCain. Kelly asks Mitchell if he can sing any higher and he looks concerned but takes her advice and hits the note.

     

    Jennifer says that pairing just made her feel good. Jennifer says Anna Catherine great song choice and she had a great voice and Mitchell had a swag about himself and if she had to choose she’d choose Mitchell. Miley says it feels like Mitchell is at one of his own shows and she loves that he involved the audience and she loves Anna Catherine because she’s keeping that craft alive and she’d go with Anna Catherine. Adam says Mitchell had a few pitch issues, but the performance made up for it and Anna Catherine had some pitch issues too, but he’d stick with Mitchell.

     

    Blake says the way Mitchell worked the stage and crowd seems like he has done it for 40 years. Blake says Anna Catherine has a female voice they don’t have in country right now and that makes this decision hard. Carson asks Blake who the winner of the Knock-Out is. Blake says he needs to base this on who he thinks can handle this thing better. The winner of this Knock-Out is Mitchell.

     

    Jennifer’s first pairing of the night is Jeremiah Miller vs Noah Mac. They are both about the same age, but they’re extremely different and Jennifer wants to see who’s ready. Noah has chosen the song Hold Back the River by James Bay. Kelly says Noah has a very intense voice for such a young person. Jeremiah has chosen the song Sorry by Justin Bieber. Jennifer says Jeremiah is the type of artist who can bring star power.

     

    Miley says Jeremiah picked a great song, but she thinks he had a stronger rock voice than Bieber does.  Miley says this was her favorite performance of Noah’s and that’s who she would go with. Adam says Jeremiah is a great singer, but Noah is a superstar. Blake says he thinks Jeremiah’s song choice turned out to be a tall task and he tells Noah he’s proud but feels really stupid.

     

    Jennifer thinks they both have potential to be stars. Jennifer says Jeremiah, it’s tricky to pick a Justin Bieber song when you’re trying to carve out your own lane. She says she feels like Noah is original and he’s kind of beyond his years. Carson says who’s the winner of this Knock-Out? Jennifer says the winner of this Knock-Out…is Noah.

     

    Blake’s next pairing is Kathrina Feigh vs Keisha Renee. Blake paired these two together because they are big soulful singers. Kathrina is going to sing Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. Kelly says she has this booming voice and the texture is very warm and round. Keisha is going to sing I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack. Kelly asks Blake why he put them together. Kelly says they are both soulful singers and she has no idea how Blake is going to make this decision.

     

    Jennifer tells Keisha that was so beautiful and she’s such an effortless, flawless singer. Jennifer says Kathrina set the place on fire and she’s proud of her and she owned it. Miley says Kathrina sang a perfect song that represented her and it was an amazing performance. Miley says she’d love to see Keisha in country music right now. Adam says Miley was right, Kathrina, it was a perfect song choice and Keisha is just different altogether.

     

    Blake says Kathrina being a steal he had a lot to learn about her and she showed him a lot, she’s an incredible talent. Blake says Keisha is such a thoughtful performer and every word came across and she blew the roof off the place with her voice. Blake says he has to make a decision and the winner of this Knock-Out is Keisha.

     

    As the night wore on, Adam paired Dylan Gerard and John Mero. John sang Blame it On the Boogie by The Jacksons and Adam says he’s a tremendous talent and he’s the winner of the Knock-Out.

     

    Miley’s next pairing is Moriah Formica vs. Whitney Fenimore because they both hold the rock space and she wants a little bit of everything on her team. Moriah is singing Behind These Hazel Eyes by Kelly Clarkson because she is one of the best vocalist out there. Whitney is singing Calling All Angels by Train because it hits close to home for her. Kelly says that Whitney sang the crap out of that Train song and Moriah should watch out for her.

     

    Adam says you two both destroyed and he’s very sad about the pairing. Adam says Whitney is my girl and you sounded amazing and Moriah Kelly Clarkson even complains about that song. Adam refuses to deicide. Blake says Whitney your voice is so clear and he was able to understand everything she was singing but Moriah had the better performance. Jennifer says Moriah you aren’t nothing to mess with and you are a star. Jennifer says Whitney you came to sing and it was beautiful. Jennifer would pick Moriah.

     

    Miley says Moriah you have an incredible voice and an amazing head on your shoulder and Whitney you came out so strong on the verses. Miley says the winner of this knockout is Moriah.

     

    Adam’s next paring is Adam Pearce vs Emily Luther because he wants to see who is going to show up. Adam is singing Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple because it’s a quintessential rock song. Emily is singing Glitter in the Air by P!nk because the song is about life.

     

    Blake says Emily you gave a beautiful performance and for him she won the knockout. Jennifer says Adam you are like a forest and Emily you have such poise and presentences and she would pick Adam. Miley says Adam she felt more nerves and you should’ve been more stable and Emily you helped her love the song again.

     

    Adam says Adam you embody the spirit of Rock and Roll and Emily you are a star and there is a piece of you missing. Adam says the winner of this knockout is Emily.

     

    Carson reminds the coaches Adam is available to steal and Adam thanks Adam from the bottom of his heart. As Adam is walking off, Miley hits her button and says she had to steal him and get him on a bigger stage with more production and fireworks.  


  19. Tonight, on The Voice, the future is now as our season 13 coaches welcome next season’s new coach, multi-platinum selling artist Kelly Clarkson. She’ll advise the artists for the most crucial and competitive part of the competition yet, The Knock-Outs. Before facing off against their own teammates, the artists must decide which song to sing and then watch their opponents rehearse. Our coaches will face the impossible choice of which artists advance to the playoffs and which ones will get their final steal. America get ready for The Knock-Outs!

     

    While our coaches get their groove on, let’s meet our key Knockout advisor, super-star Kelly Clarkson. Let’s meet the first knockout pairing of the season, Team Blakes Adam Cunningham vs Esera Tuaolo. Adam is going to sing Either Way by Chris Stapleton. He chose the song because it’s a country song with a little soul. Blake loves his song choice because it showcases his range and it’s just him and his guitar which is a powerful thing for the show. Kelly says Adam is a natural story teller. Esera has chosen the song Superstar by Luther Vandross. He wanted to sing this song for his mother. Kelly advises to make sure he uses the bravado when he performs because it’s great.

     

    Jennifer says Esera’s notes just soared and he captured the moment, and Adam captivated her and that felt like his song. She says it was almost a tie. Miley says for Adam to keep it simple with just him in the guitar was amazing and Esera was just a huge performance. Adam says Adam came out and sang a solid song that his fans will love, but what Esera did he had a quality that mesmerized everyone. Adam would have to go with Esera.

     

    Blake says it’s tough, he didn’t see this coming. He says he’s looking at two incredible people who both deserve to move on. Carson says Blake, who is the winner of this knockout. Blake hesitates then says the winner of this knockout is…Esera.

     

    Carson says just a reminder Adam is available to steal and Adam says good point and smacks his button. Adam says he has a big country voice and beating Blake with a country artist would be amazing.

     

    Team Jennifer is next, and she paired Lucas Holliday vs Shi’Ann Jones. She paired them because they are both powerhouses and they are both R&B artists and she wants to see who’s ready. Lucas has selected the song Tell It Like It Is by Aaron Neville. Kelly says Lucas is a good example of why she’s excited for blinds for her season. Jennifer wants Lucas to be able to show his full range. Shi’Ann is going to perform Who’s Loving You by The Jackson 5. Kelly says Shi’Ann’s voice is pretty powerful and she was blown away by her. Jennifer doesn’t want to let anyone go.

     

    Miley says this is the most fun part of the knockouts, the unexpected just keeps happening. Miley would say Shi’Ann won the knockout for her. Adam says Lucas is a freak and he likes freak. Adam says Shi’Ann wow. He hears a powerhouse talent. Blake was surprised to hear Lucas went off the rails a little bit but he felt Shi’Ann maintained control.

     

    Jennifer says Lucas that was the song that was needed in this moment to showcase his voice and Shi’Ann picked the perfect song. Jennifer says they are both outstanding. Jennifer says she is stuck right now. She pauses and says she thinks she needs to go with Shi’Ann.

     

    Let’s meet Adam’s first Knockout pairing, Addison Agen vs. Dennis Drummond. He likes to pair his steals together to see what they can do. Dennis has selected All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix. Kelly tells him that was incredible and so good. Adam tells him to perform for the people too. Addison has decided to sing Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth featuring Emeli Sande. Kelly says she wasn’t expecting that voice and she has a gorgeous tone. Adam says Adele’s soulfulness is something Addison shares.

     

    Blake says Addison is one of his favorite vocalists and Dennis is his boy and he’s a great singer. Blake would say vocally, Addison took that one. Jennifer says some people come with a voice that has a melody and her voice already sings a song and Dennis’ presence on the stage is amazing but she wanted to feel as much presence in his voice. Miley says Addison was as close to pitch perfect as you can get and Dennis is a total package and she’s a huge fan.

     

    Adam says Dennis played from the heart and he is not a background singer and he’s really talented. Adam says there is so much going on in the world and when Addison sings it makes him feel like everything is going to be ok. Carson says Adam, who is the winner of this knockout? Adam says the winner of this knockout is…Addison.

     

    Miley has paired Janice Freeman vs. Karli Webster because they have the most unique voices. Janice is going to sing I’m Going Down by Mary J. Blige. Kelly says Janice is a force and the first time she heard her sing it was captivating. Karli has chosen the song Blue Bayou by Linda Ronstadt. Kelly says Karli has a voice to be reckoned with. Miley says Janice has a huge voice but if Karli sings with the emotion she did in rehearsal she can give Janice a run for her money.

     

    Adam says I can’t believe that was a pairing. He says Karli you know I love you but now he loves Janice too. Karli you did a fantastic job but so did Janice. Adam would pick Janice. Blake says Karli I respect you in your lane, and then Janice in her lane blew us away. He agrees with Adam and would pick Janice as well. Jennifer says she enjoyed watch both of them. She says she would’ve thrown her shoe at Janice but she couldn’t get it off her foot. Karli took her to a pleasant place.

     

    Miley says I could not be more proud as a coach. The level of talent is equal for both of them. She says it’s a hard decision and there is nothing wrong with either performer. Miley says the winner of this knockout is… Janice.

     

    Jennifer has paired Daven Fleming vs. Eric Lyn because they are both soul singers with different styles. Eric is going to sing What’s going on by Marvin Gaye. He chose the song to show off his jazz side of his voice. Kelly says Eric has an insane jazz voice about him. Daven is going to sing I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me because is at spiritual connection for him and takes him back to his roots.

     

    Miley says Davon you did what you need to do in this knockout round and Eric you showed your coach you can handle the pressure and your voice is just lovely. Adam says Daven your ridiculous and it makes him feel bad about himself. Eric, you just have a unique thing and he loves it. He says he should perform in a bar in outer space. Black says Eric your such a stylist and you completely sperate yourself from the competition. And Daven he felt that he should’ve hid his drink. He felt like he was at church.  

     

    Jennifer says first of all what you two represent as vocalist is that she takes her hat off to them. She doesn’t want to make this decision because she thinks they should both be in the competition. Jennifer says the winner of this knockout is… Davon.

     

    Miley has paired Ashland Craft vs. Chloe Kohanski because they both have raspy voices. Ashland is going to sing Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi. She chose the song because she feels like is shows a different side of her as an artist/ Kelly says she loves the rasp in her voice and she has this raw rock n roll voice. Chole is going to sing Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. She chose the song because she built her life around other people so this is the first time she is doing something for herself. Kelly says she teared up with Chloe because she is such a story teller. Miley says she is so impressed by Chloe and hopes she can move the entire audience.

     

    Jennifer says this is a tough round, first Ashland I adore everything about you and you are a star. Chloe, made the moment hers. Adam says Ashland had a powerful performance and Chloe broke out and showed something they didn’t know was there. Blake says Ashland had a pitch perfect performance and Chloe had a connection with the song and they all felt connected with her. Blake would probably go with Chloe.

     

    Miley says Chloe and her are so much alike, but she likes a challenge and she just doesn’t know what to do. Carson says Miley tough decision, but time to find out who is the winner of this knockout. Miley says they did an amazing job and they are so talented and this breaks her down…she just has to go with her gut and the winner of the knockout is Ashland.

     

    Chloe is available to steal and Chloe thanks Miley and says it was a pleasure working with her and Jennifer and Blake both hit their buttons at the same time. Jennifer says just to see her talk about why she picked her song reminded her of her passion and she has such a beautiful message and she wants to be a part of that. Blake says he’s glad they keep saying she could go on and win the show because that’s what he specializes in. He’s wanted her on his team every single time she’s stepped on that stage. Blake says he wants her on his team so bad. Adam thinks she might work well with Blake and Blake gets up to give Adam a hug.

     

    Carson says Chloe a lot to take in, an exciting moment for you. Who do you pick as your coach? Chloe hesitates and says she doesn’t know. She has to go with her heart and her new coach is Blake.

     

    The judges have battled it out all season, but tomorrow the gloves are coming off. And next week, it’s the final round of knockouts, the last chance for coaches to steal, and the most spectacular performances yet.


  20. Tonight, the final battles will be fought. The final winners will be chosen. And the final steal will be made. Helping prepare the artists for the toughest night yet, Kelly Rowland, Joe Jonas, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Rascal Flatts. The artists will hold nothing back, leaving our coaches with decisions too impossible to make. Then stay tuned for a sneak-peek at next week’s crucial Knock-outs, where this seasons coaches will be joined by next seasons coach Kelly Clarkson. The final night of battles starts right now!

     

    As our coaches get settled, let’s meet Blakes final battle pairing Adam Cunningham vs Natalie Stovall. Blake paired these two because he thinks they will complement each other well. Blake gave them the song Boondocks by Little Big Town. Rascal Flatts advises them to make sure the end of their phrases match-up. At the final rehearsal, Natalie decided not to use the fiddle and Blake says she’s already delivering a more powerful vocal. Blake says he’s kicking himself right now because these two are blowing him away and whichever artist can step up to the plate and get the energy going in the room, that’s who is going to win this battle.

     

    Jennifer says that was fun to watch and she likes Natalie’s vibe and Adam held his own presence. Jennifer would choose Adam. Miley says it’s fun to sit in LA and sing about the Boondocks. Miley says they both did a great job. Adam says they were fantastic. Adam says Adam’s stage presence was really cool and Natalie was a great performer. Adam loves seeing Blake suffer and he tells him to have fun.

     

    Blake says they are both pros and great singers and asks if anyone has any steals and says what a bunch of losers. Miley suggests going to commercial and Carson says to be continued perhaps. Blake says he doesn’t know what to do and asks if one of them wants to give up? Blake says neither of them won or lost and all he can do now is think ahead about what they can do and with that, the winner of this battle is…Adam.

     

    Let’s check in with Jennifer and her adviser, Kelly Rowland and meet the next battle pairing, Eric Lyn vs. Ignatious Carmouche. Jennifer gave them Unaware to perform by Allen Stone. Jennifer says this is a moody song and has a certain vibe to it and she wants them to deliver that vibe. Kelly says she’s so in love with the velvet texture of Eric’s voice, but she’d like to hear a bit more volume. Kelly tells Ignatious he needs to trust himself more on the notes. Jennifer says Eric’s voice is so unique, but Ignatious’ voice has so much power. Jennifer says this will be the hardest decision for her, it will be who sets the tone the best.

     

    Miley says that was such an awesome performance. The way they were synchronized in their town and movement, it was crazy. Miley says this was a tie for her. Adam says Eric is an immensely talented, but he thinks Ignatious is a work in progress and that’s who he’d pick. Blake thinks Eric had the most control and Ignatious maybe went off the rails a tiny hair and he’d go with Eric.

     

    Jennifer says vocally, they are equal, and she loves they took her notes. She says this is tough. Carson says the time has come. Who does she pick as her winner? Jennifer says she’s picking who she thinks was the most confident in the moment and that was Eric.

     

    While Miley and her dad get settled, let’s meet the final battle pairing Ashland Craft vs Megan Rose. Miley paired them because they are her country gals and she wants one of everything. She gave them the song Good Hearted Woman by Waylon Jennings. Billy Ray says sometimes Waylon and Willie would feel the spirit to answer each other and they can use that for their battle. Billy Ray says both ladies are really great singers and the sky is the limit. At their final rehearsal, Miley and Billy Ray sing along and harmonize with Ashland and Megan.

     

    Adam says he’s mad at Ashland for not choosing him, but he’s incredible and there’s a power to what she does. Adam says Megan also made him super sad, two people that ruined his day, but they both did a great job. Blake says they were blown away in the blinds by Ashland, but congratulations to them both. Jennifer says she’s going to try and help Miley a little bit. She though Ashland had a grip on the song and Megan ran with her, but the stand out voice was Ashland.

     

    Miley says this is a really intense decision for her because they give her a sense of home. Miley says it is a really, really tough decision and she’s really proud of both of them and it’s made such an impact on her. The winner of this battle is…Ashland.

     

    Megan is available to steal, and she thanks Miley and as she’s leaving the stage Blake hits his button for the steal. Blake says he’s been sitting here waiting for someone like her and she stepped up to the challenge and he’s ready to help her.

     

    Starting next week, our coaches will send their teams into the Knock-outs. Advising them all for the most competitive and crucial part of the competition yet is next season’s coach Kelly Clarkson. It’s the most strategic round of the show as the artist’s will pick their own songs and our coaches will only have one steal to fortify their teams. Get ready America, the epic season 13 Knock-outs start next Monday.


  21. Tonight, the battle to win The Voice continues. Helping our coaches to make these the best battles in Voice history are Billy Ray Cyrus, Rascal Flatts, Joe Jonas, and Kelly Rowland. The artist’s performances will be some of the greatest our coaches have ever seen making the desire to steal even greater. America, get ready to battle!

     

    While our coaches head to their chairs, let’s meet Adam’s first battle pairing, Brandon Brown vs. Jon Mero. Adam says they are both very soulful singers, so it should be a good pairing. Adam gave them I Wish It Would Rain by The Temptations. Joe advises them not to focus on The Temptations version because there will be young ears and a fresh audience hearing it. Adam thinks Jon can push Brandon to project more and Brandon can show Jon a softer side. Adam can feel them both coming together during their final rehearsals. Brandon and Jon are ready to face off and they take the stage.

     

    Blake says he was surprised Brandon stepped up to the plate and delivered. Blake says Jon is special and he would go with Jon, but they both did a great job. Jennifer says she didn’t know Adam had all of that on his team and that felt like a true battle and that’s a tough one. Miley says she could see Jon has performed for an audience before and she could see Brandon was new to it but she thinks they both did a great job.

     

    Adam says if he looks at who captured the spirit of the song Brandon did that and took him back to the era. Adam says Jon didn’t do that, but he did his thing and he’s more experienced. Adam says Jon doing the falsetto runs at the end were special. Adam says this isn’t easy and they both deserve to be rewarded. Adam says this is the worst part of his day. Carson says tough decision Adam, who’s the winner of this battle. Adam says he wouldn’t be able to live with himself if he didn’t explore this further, but the winner of this battle is Jon.

     

    Let’s meet Blake’s first battle pairing, Red Marlow vs Ryan Scripps. Blake has given them Fishin’ In The Dark by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Rascal Flatts says he wants to see these two have fun and they think Ryan needs to be pushed out of his comfort zone a little bit. Blake says this is going to be great for them but suck for him. He says whichever artist can perform this song to where it seems like their own is who is going to win this battle. Red and Ryan take the stage and are ready to perform.

     

    Jennifer says Ryan felt laid back and it was cool, but Red is her type of guy. Miley says what Ryan did with the song is where country is right now, but when they picture country music they picture Red. Adam says they were great and they were both equal.

     

    Blake says they both represent country music and Miley is right, but this decision must come down to the vocals and they are equal in a lot of ways. The winner of this battle…is Red.

     

    Let’s meet Miley’s first battle pairing of the night, Addison Agen vs. Karli Webster. Miley says there is a lot of similarity in their voices and she only needs one on her team. Miley gave them Girls Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper, but instead of the original version she wants to slow it down, so she can really hear their voices. Billy Ray says they were kind of on opposite ends of spectrum which made it a unique blend and he would never have thought of slowing the song down, but it’s beautiful. Miley says it’s hurting her soul she paired them together. Billy Ray says this is special.

     

    It’s the night of the battle and Addison and Karli are ready to take the stage. Adam says ladies that was amazing! Adam says it’s funny they were paired together when it was Adam and Miley who fought for them. He says they did amazing and he might get to steal one of them. Jennifer says that was amazing. Jennifer says Addison’s voice can do so many things and Karli’s voice is classic. Blake agrees with Adam, but he thinks Addison had a better attack on the song so that’s who he’d go with.

     

    Miley says once she put them together it crushed her soul, but the moment was so worth it. She says this is the hardest decision she’s had to make as a coach. She’s going to go with her heart and the winner of this battle is…Karli.

     

    Addison is available to steal and Adam and Jennifer both hit their buttons and Jennifer stands up and gives Adam a stare down. Jennifer says girl power! Jennifer says she loves her voice, it can do so many things and she’d love to be her coach. Adam says he turned for her in the blinds and he can help her with her journey and he will never stop. Adam thinks he was her guy from the beginning except for that small speed bump that was Miley and he can help her get to where she wants. Jennifer says she comes from a similar background and they can have fun on this path together.

     

    Carson says Addison you get to decide, who is your new coach going to be. Addison says I love you Jennifer, but I must go with Adam.

     

    As the night went on, the battles continued to impress our coaches. We see Team Blake’s pairing of Anna Catherine DeHart vs Kristi Hoopes who sang Independence Day by Martina McBride and Blake thanked them both for working hard and he decided to keep Anna Catherine. We then see Team Jennifer’s pairing of Alexandra Joyce vs Jeremiah Miller who sang One Call Away by Charlie Puth and Jennifer says they both were excellent and worked well together and Jennifer decided to keep Jeremiah.  Next, is Team Adam’s pairing of Emily Luther vs Gary Carpenter who sang Send My Love (To Your New Lover) by Adele and Adam says the vocals were evenly matched and Adam chose Emily as the winner.

     

    Team Jennifer’s next pairing is Shi’Ann Jones vs Stephan Marcellus. Jennifer wants to see of these two who will deliver a strong performance with a great stage presence. Jennifer gave them Oh! Darling by The Beatles. Jennifer gives them advice on connecting to the story. At the final rehearsal, Kelly and Jennifer both encourage Stephan to give some emotion to back his words. Kelly tells Shi’Ann she needs to be a little warmer with her delivery. Jennifer says whichever artist can perform with passion, soul, and intent is going to make her decision for her.

     

    Adam says that was close to a tie and they are both unique. If Adam had to pick, he’d pick Stephan. Miley thinks vocally Stephan can do so much. Miley says when Shi’Ann hits the high notes she soars. Miley thinks Shi’Ann was amazing, but she’d like to see Stephan on the show a bit longer. Blake says they are both talented and deserve to be here. Blake says Stephan’s voice cuts through, but he thinks Shi’Ann can win this show.

     

    Jennifer says this one is definitely crushing her heart. Jennifer says thinking back to the blinds and to see him perform tonight she takes her hat off to him. Jennifer says Shi’Ann reminds her of herself when she first started, and she can see the potential of where she can go. Carson says they need to know the winner of the battle. Jennifer says the winner of the battle is…Shi’Ann Jones.

     

    Stephan is available to steal. Stephan thanks Jennifer for believing in him. Jennifer is hoping one of the others steal. Miley asks Adam if she should just do it and he says you can still do it. Miley reaches over and hits her button. Miley says in his blind he had a little bit of a hiccup in the blinds but he did a complete 180 and she’s looking for an entertainer.

     

    Let’s meet Adam’s final match-up, Anthony Alexander vs Michael Kight. Adam says they are both very different singers but evenly matched. Adam gave them I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk. Adam says this song is great for them because it will showcase their abilities. Adam and Joe tell Anthony to keep time, even if he has to tap on the floor. Adam tells Michael to work on his attack and Joe tells him to watch his breath control. Adam says this will be a tough one and he’ll have to go with whoever pulls the performance off better. Joe says they are both doing a great job and if one of them has a shining moment, they will win.

     

    Blake says he thinks that song fit both of them. Blake says Anthony had the stronger voice, but he heard pitch issues. Blake says Michael’s pitch was dead on and he thinks Michael is more comfortable on stage. Blake would go with Michael. Jennifer says that was amazing to watch. She loves Anthony’s voice and he kept the melody. Jennifer says it’s a tough choice to make and she’s glad she doesn’t have to make it. Miley says when Anthony came in on perfect pitch she was so impressed with that and she thought they were both professional. Miley thinks Anthony would be a better pairing for Adam.

     

    Carson says Adam give us some thoughts. Adam says when Anthony starts singing it’s wow and he can see things they can do as they move forward, where with Michael he thinks he is ready to go. Carson says who is the winner of this battle? Adam says this comes down to what he can see going forward and the winner of this battle is…Anthony.

     

    We’re back and Miley and Billy are singing Sweet Home Alabama together. Miley’s next battle pairing is Janice Freeman from Katrina Rose. Miley paired these two because they have two of the biggest voices on her team. Miley gave them the song W.O.M.A.N. by Etta James. Billy Ray says wow, they both had the Janis Joplin effect. Miley advises them to listen to the Etta James version. At the final rehearsal, Miley wants to work on simplifying the first verse for Katrina, so she has room to build during the song. Miley wants to find more moments for Janice and this song is made to say here’s who I am, and they have to state their individuality. Billy Ray says Janice Janis Joplin and Katrina a hurricane and there’s a lot of power.

     

    Adam says that was crazy, he feels like they just came up and ripped the roof off the building. Adam says music does possess us and they are both phenomenal. Blake says Janice has the kind of voice you never forget and is so powerful. Blake says if Katrina wasn’t such a good singer he’d say the WWE would be a good place for her. Blake says in 13 seasons of doing this show, he’s never seen someone so wrapped up in the moment and because of that he’d like to see some more from Katrina. Jennifer says Katrina sang her head back and Janice sang her bracelet off. Jennifer says Janice is so seasoned and full of power and Katrina hit notes she hadn’t heard before.

     

    Carson says this tough decision comes down to you, Miley. Miley says that was Katrina reeled in, believe it or not. Carson says tough decision, who’s the winner of this battle. Miley says they have just completely blown the roof off and they can’t walk away from this feeling like it’s a loss. The winner of this battle is Janice.

     

    Katrina is available to steal. Katrina says Miley and her dad helped her find her voice and she’s done trying to fit into other people’s boxes. As Katrina is giving hugs Jennifer hits her button. Miley says she’s so happy right now. Jennifer says here at JHud productions we don’t believe in limits or boxes.


  22. Last night on The Voice, Season 13 battles set a new standard with the help of four of the biggest names in music, Rascal Flatts, Billy Ray Cyrus, Joe Jonas, and Kelly Rowland. Tonight, the artists must take it to the next level and one battle has our coaches seeing stars, leaving them itching for a steal. Night two of the battles starts right now!

     

    While our coaches head to their chairs, let’s meet the first battle pairing of the night, Davon Fleming vs Maharasyi. Jennifer has given them I’m Your Baby Tonight by Whitney Houston. Kelly and Jennifer notice that Davon knows the song so well he’s not leaving much room for Maharasyi so they give some tips on how to play off of each other.

     

    At their final rehearsal, Davon and Maharasyi and Jennifer gives a few last minute tips and Jennifer and Kelly demonstrate how to listen and blend together. Jennifer says they have pure voices and if they work together then this decision is going to be impossible. Davon and Maharasyi take the stage and Jennifer is telling them to work the mic and Miley loves Maharasyi’s outfit.

     

    Miley loved most the entertainment factor and how much they used the stage. She pushed for both of them and she’s equally a fan and it’s really up to Jennifer and what she sees moving forward. Adam says he can’t even look at Davon because he wanted him on his team and he said Maharasyi is wearing quite a dress. He’d have to go with Davon because he’s a force of nature. Blake says as much as they loved Davon, he was a four chair turn, but everything he did Maharasyi matched.

     

    Jennifer says Maharasyi looks like a star and she sounded amazing and she’s extremely proud. She says Davon showed so much joy and his love for Whitney and it makes her job harder and she’s so hard proud. Carson says the time has come, who is the winner of this battle? Jennifer says the winner of this battle…got to go with Davon.

     

    Let’s look at Adam’s battle pairing, Brandon Showell vs Hannah Mrozak. Adam has given them Cold Water by Major Lazer Featuring Justin Bieber and MO. Joe says Hannah is a fantastic singer, but she gets a little lost in the moment. Joe gives Brandon tips on phrasing and where to breathe. Adam gives tips on ad-libbing and making the song their own. Adam says this is going to be a tough choice and it’s going to come down to who he can’t look away from. Brandon and Hannah take the stage to perform.

     

    Blake congratulates both of them. He says every time he thought one would pull ahead, the other would step up. Blake would probably go with Hannah. Jennifer says it was such a good pairing and at times it sounded like the perfect duet. Jennifer would have to go with Brandon. Miley says she pushed for Brandon and didn’t for Hannah but now she can see her growth. She congratulates them both because it was amazing.

     

    Adam says he heard something special from the beginning in Hannah, but with Brandon he’s grown to love him a lot. What makes this decision difficult is they both did what they were supposed to do and it made it a dead even match. Carson says who is the winner of this battle? Adam says the winner of this battle is…Hannah.

     

    As the night continued our coaches were faced with more tough decisions. Team Adam pairing Dave Crosby vs Dylan Gerard sang Doctor My Eyes by Jackson Browne and he decided to keep Dylan. Team Blake pairing Esera Tuaolo vs Rebecca Brunner sang This I Promise You by *NSync and Blake decided to keep Esera. Team Miley pairing Chloe Kohanski vs Ilianna Viramontes sang I Am Woman and Miley kept Chloe.

     

    Let’s meet Blake’s last battle pairing, Dennis Drummond vs Mitchell Lee. Blake paired them because they are both Nashville guys, but they aren’t necessarily country. Blake gave them Mr. Jones by Counting Crows because it fits each of their styles. Rascal Flatts gives tips on harmonizing. Blake gives tips to Dennis on stage presence and Mitchell tips on diction.

     

    At their final rehearsal, Rascal Flatts says the day before Dennis was the quiet one in the corner, but today he looked like a rock star and they note Mitchell enunciated really well. Blake says they are both blowing him away and they both take direction very well. Blake says this is going to be one of his toughest decisions.

     

    Dennis and Mitchell are on the stage and are ready to perform. Jennifer says they are so captivating and amazing to watch and they sound so good. She wants to go to their concert whether it’s together or not and they are both stars and she doesn’t know who she’d go with, but she might have to ride with Mitchell. Miley says Mitchell’s voice is so pitch perfect and Dennis is so much fun to watch and it was more than just the vocals for her, it was his stage presence. She thinks she’d keep Mitchell because of the voice. Adam says they are both awesome and he turned for both of them. Adam says this is a tough one but Mitchell would probably be more in Blake’s wheel house but Dennis is so unique.

     

    Blake says dang Dennis, no one mentioned how tall you were, it was just about how entertaining he was and a great singer he was. Blake says Mitchell’s voice was clear and pitch perfect is voice is and it’s really exciting and heart breaking. This is the closest battle he has this season and it’s a testament to their hard work. Carson says tough decision Blake, but we have to know who the winner is. Blake says at the end of the day this is The Voice and the winner of the battle is Mitchell.

     

    Dennis is available to steal and Adam immediately hits his button before he can even say anything to Blake. Adam says he fought really hard for him in the blinds and it sucked he lost him, but not anymore.

     

    Monday and Tuesday, the bar is being raised. These are the final battles and the steal is about to get serious. It’s the epic double steal showdown you won’t want to miss!


  23. Tonight, the battle to win The Voice begins! Before they take the stage, they’ll be trained some of the biggest names in music. Blake recruited multi-platinum selling, award winning country music superstars Rascal Flatts. Helping team Jennifer, one of the founding members of Destiny’s Child, four time Grammy award winner, Kelly Rowland. Adam brought in lead vocalist of DNCE and former member of the Jonas Brothers, multi-platinum selling singer and actor, Joe Jonas. And Miley looked no further than her father, multi-platinum selling recording artist and actor, Billy Ray Cyrus. With coaching like this the artist’s will be unstoppable. Our coach’s decisions will be impossible and their steals more crucial. It all starts right now!

     

    Let’s check in with Jennifer and her advisor, Kelly Rowland. Let’s meet Jennifer’s first pairing, Lucas Holliday vs Meagan McNeal. Jennifer paired these two because they are both unique artist’s with an R&B feel. Jennifer has picked Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative because it’s funky, edgy, and it will help them shine that much more. Kelly can’t believe these two were one-chair turned. Kelly gives Meagan some staging tips. As the battle approaches, Lucas and Meagan get one more rehearsal with the band. Jennifer tells Lucas not to worry about what Meagan is doing and vice versa. She thinks they need to both pull it back and focus on their own parts and Kelly tells them not to climax in the middle of the song, but to take them home at the end.

     

    It’s the night of their performance and both artists are ready to take the stage. Lucas is not ready to go back to the store in Lansing and be a cashier for the rest of his life. Meagan wants to show her son no matter what obstacles or what you’ve been through, you can rise up and tackle what’s in front of you.

     

    Miley says Meagan owned it and her range was so amazing. That was a crowd pleaser. Miley says she saw the body rolls from Lucas and she knew he was an entertainer. She says getting to watch them perform was such a gift. Adam says what in the hell was that? He says 13 seasons deep and something like this happens and it’s what makes you realize why people love the show. Adam apologizes to Meagan because he didn’t know how awesome she was and Lucas, he’s a fan. Congrats to both of them. Blake says his sister used to play that song so loud in her room and that was as good as it could be.

     

    Jennifer says she is so proud of both of them. The way they came in and commanded the room and they got down. Jennifer says what she appreciates most if they were both true to who they are and that’s what makes it so difficult to make this decision. Carson says tough one coach. Jennifer says they are both so amazing. Carson says JHud who is the winner of this battle? Jennifer says the winner of this battle is…Lucas.

     

    This season Miley brought in her dad, country music icon Billy Ray Cyrus. Let’s meet Miley’s first battle pairing, Moriah Formica vs Shilo Gold. Miley chose American Woman by The Guess Who because she thinks it made sense for her all-female team and celebrating strong female characters. Miley wants to see if Shilo can handle pushing on a song like this. Billy says this could be the new female Brooks and Dunn. At their final rehearsal, Miley and Billy Ray give a few last minute tips with stage and staying confident. Billy Ray says this sounds to him like a battle where no one is going home.

     

    Moriah and Shilo are already on stage and ready to perform. Adam says Ladies! Adam says the fact Moriah isn’t on his team is dumb. He says she is unbelievable cool and different. Adam says Shilo did a great job, but he’d have to go with Moriah. Blake says great performance and they both brought elements that he appreciated. Blake says Moriah is a born rock star and Shilo is a born entertainer. Jennifer thinks Shilo did an amazing job owning it and making it her own, that was awesome. Jennifer says Moriah is like a 40-year old soul and she’d have to go with Moriah as well.

     

    Miley says Shilo has grown the most and she’s strengthened up her voice so much. Miley says she’s nervous to be around Moriah because she’s such a rock goddess. Carson says tough decision Miley, who is the winner of this battle. Miley says the winner of the battle is…Moriah.

     

    Let’s check in with Blake and his advisors, country music superstars with over 23 million albums sold, Rascal Flatts. Let’s meet Blake’s first battle pairing, Keisha Renee vs Noah Mac. Blake put them together because he really thinks they are the most powerful singers on his team. He gave them I’m So Lonesome I Could Try, the Elvis version because it’s country, it’s rock and they can make the song their own. Blake tells Rascal Flatts she wants to explore further into country music and Rascal Flatts would love to see it happen and they’d like to do a duet with her. Rascal Flatts tells Noah he’s an old soul and a different tone like Jerry Lee Lewis or Michael Buble.

     

    At their final rehearsal, Keisha and Noah impress Rascal Flatts. They say Keisha is one of the best singers they’ve heard in a long time, but Noah is really special and when he starts singing you forget he’s only 17-years old. They say it’s going to be a tough decision for Blake. Blake says Noah has shown the most improvement so far, but this is going to be a really tough decision. Blake says the person who delivers this song with a message and feeling will win the battle.

     

    Keisha and Noah take the stage. Jennifer says Noah’s voice is like an old soul and it’s very rare you can be that young and sing like that. Jennifer says Keisha’s voice is so flawlessly beautiful. She thinks they both come with something extremely special and she couldn’t pick between the two. Miley says Keisha came out with style and grace and she didn’t know Noah had all the low notes that were so solid. Miley thinks Keisha could win the show so that’s who she would pick. Adam says Keisha was bringing him to church but Noah was bringing him to a diner. Adam says there’s something about what they do that’s special and he couldn’t choose. He says it’s not like one was better than the other, it’s like comparing apples and oranges.

     

    Blake says it’s always easier when there’s a battle round where one brings it and the other sucks, but these two gave it everything they had. He says artistically they are so different. He says there’s so much honesty that comes with Noah’s voice and Keisha can fly with her voice. Carson says Blake who is the winner of this battle. Blake says this sucks so bad for him. Blake says he just has to do it…the winner of this battle is Keisha.

     

    Carson reminds the coaches Noah is available to steal. He thanks Blake and he goes to give Blake a hug. Jennifer seems hesitant. Noah goes and gives Adam a hug and starts to walk off, but Jennifer hits her button and Noah is stunned. He gives Jennifer a hug. Carson says Noah doesn’t realize he was one step away. Jennifer says she noticed the care and compassion he had for the music and here at JHud productions, they appreciate that. Jennifer says she thinks Noah has a great pop star quality and he’s special.

     

    Jennifer’s next pairing is Chris Weaver vs Kathrina Feigh. Jennifer says these two are her powerhouses and she wants to see who will deliver the most memorable and powerful performance. Jennifer gave them Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Jennifer says it exudes passion, power, everything they represent. Jennifer says if they don’t piece it together right, then they are going to crash and burn. At the final rehearsal, Kelly tells them too much is too much and they have to give the audience something and build to the climax. Jennifer says they are both so good, she doesn’t know who she’s going to pick.

     

    Chris and Kathrina are on stage and we are ready to let the battle begin. Miley says they have the biggest band behind them and it was almost acapella. Miley thinks Kathrina did an amazing job and Chris has a crazy voice and they set the standard of the battles. Adam says to go up against Chris is terrifying and Kathrina was right there with him and she didn’t let him overpower her. Adam says Chris is a force of nature that cannot be stopped. Blake says they are both incredible singers and they had control over the song. Blake says Kathrina had the song by the throat and Chris had the song by the throat and he was slapping it at the same time.

     

    Jennifer says it’s tough. Jennifer says Kathrina held her own and her voice is huge and she sold the moment. Jennifer says what they call Chris voice is a freight train and it is tough to battle against that and she’s proud of them both. Carson says Jennifer, who is the winner of this battle. Jennifer thinks everyone did what they were supposed to do. The winner of this battle is…Chris.

     

    Kathrina is available to steal and she feels like she already won. Blake hits his button and we have a steal! Blake says here at B Shelton productions they try not to let great talent get away from them.

     

    Let’s see Team Miley’s next pairing, Brooke Simpson vs Sophia Bollman. Miley paired them together because they are two of her biggest voices. Miley gave them You’re a Big Girl Now by Bob Dylan. Miley says this is going to be a little out of the box and it shows her where they can go creatively. Billy tells them to make it their own. Billy doesn’t envy Miley at all to make a decision between these two and he knows it’s going to be tough on Miley.

     

    Both artists, Brooke and Sophia are ready to take the stage and Miley gives some last minute advice to show what they can bring to Knock-outs. Adam says Sophia looks like a mini-Shakira but she did an incredible job. Adam says Brooke has all the power Sophia has but the next level of refinement. Adam says he’d go with Brooke, but Sophia is not to be trifled with. Jennifer says she didn’t even realize Sophia had a big presence and voice. Jennifer wishes Miley good luck. Blake says Brooke held the bar up there in the blind auditions and she held true to what they expected and Sophia stepped up to that level. Blake says he’d probably give it to Brooke too, if he had to.

     

    Miley says they made a Bob Dylan their song. Miley says Sophia has been so amazing and Brooke is such a superstar and she is so proud of both of them. When she pushed her red button at the blinds, she made a commitment to them and she’s there for them whenever they need her. Carson says time to make a decision, who is the winner of this battle. Miley says the winner of this battle is Brooke.

     

    Now we’ll meet Adam’s advisor, Joe Jonas. The first pairing for Team Adam is Adam Pearce vs Whitney Fenimore. Adam says they are his rock and rollers. Adam gave them Stop Dragging My Heart Around by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, one of the classic rock and roll duets made for artists like them. Joe thinks they are still finding their own version of the song and once they find their own lane, they’ll be great. Joe says he can’t pick a favorite between the two and they complement each other very well.

     

    At the final rehearsal, Joe advises Adam and Whitney to tell the story. Joe says Adam and Whitney floored him, they could tour the world right now and he’d go see the concert live any time. Adam says that was so good. Adam says Whitney has some edginess going on and Adam is a total stand-out and amazing. Adam says Whitney is a little superstar. He thought Adam was a front runner, but now the playing field is extremely equal.

     

    Adam and Whitney are on stage and are ready to perform. Blake says Adam has such a classic rock sounding voice and he’s not sure what direction Whitney is going musically, but that’s a good path. Blake would go with Whitney, but they both did great. Jennifer says Adam’s vocal presence couldn’t be missed and Whitney’s presence on stage is great, but she’d go with Adam. Miley says she doesn’t know what to say. She loves seeing Adam playing the guitar and she liked his hair flip and Whitney was stronger than she was in the blinds and she showed growth. Whitney thinks Adam would be fun to watch in the lives.

     

    Adam says he’s proud of them. He says this is tough because he might have leaned towards Adam in the beginning, but Whitney has really surprised him. Unfortunately, he’s fallen in love with both of them and he thinks they are 100% equal. Carson says Adam, who is the winner of this battle. Adam says the winner of this battle is…Adam.

     

    Whitney is available to steal. Whitney thanks Adam so much and Adam was amazing. Blake and Miley hit their buttons and we have a double steal. Miley says she turned for her before in the blinds and now it’s two for two and she thinks Adams should stay together and the Whitney and Miley can become something special. Blake says over here at BShel Productions he realizes that there is something truly special about her and they are Okies. Miley says she has Okie tattooed on her arm so she is Okie by association. Adam wants to help Whitney and he doesn’t think Miley has anything like Whitney and Blake is Blake and that’s cool too.

     

    Carson says Whitney, it’s up to you. Who’s your new coach. Whitney says Miley did turn for her and Blake is incredible, but she chooses…Miley.  

     

    Tomorrow, the second night of battles brings heart-stopping performances that have the coach’s crushing. But when losing incredible talent becomes too painful, get ready for the most unexpected steal of the season.


  24. Previously on Survivor, at the Hero tribe Alan was aiming to take out a power couple. At the healer tribe, Joe and Cole went on the hunt for an idol. At the hustler tribe, Simone and Patrick were the clear targets. At tribal council, Patrick made a questionable remark, but in the end Simone was sent home. 16 are left, who will be voted out tonight?

     

    We’re at Day7 with the Hustlers and Ryan is wearing Simone’s clothes that she left behind. Patrick is also putting on a few items. Ryan and Patrick are talking about the girls and Ryan asks if he has a preference and Patrick says Ali to stay and Lauren is the next one to go. Ryan says Ali is the most relatable female on the tribe and she’s in the same age range. Ryan doesn’t think anyone has anything going on with Lauren.

     

    Ali and Lauren are talking while they are washing in the ocean and they are talking about trying to work together. Lauren tells us she feels like she’s on the outs because she’s having a hard time making sure she’s included. She’s a single-mom and everyone on her tribe is like high school buddies. Devon joins the girls and Lauren brings up Patrick’s comment from tribal council and she’s trying to place a target on his back. Ali says she doesn’t know what’s going on with Patrick because he just blurts out words, but if they get rid of him it weakens their tribe. Ali says Patrick doesn’t understand the social game is huge for Survivor, but right now she kind of needs him.

     

    At the Heroes beach, Chrissy and Ben are talking and they say everyone needs to work with them and they are in the prime position. Ben says they are driving the train, but moving forward they need to figure out the next target. Ben says Ashley is a hard worker and a lot of fun, so the better choices are JP and Alan. Alan and Ben were aligned from day one but he’s a hothead and a loose cannon and JP is walking around like he doesn’t know what’s going on, but he does fish.

     

    Alan is chopping coconuts but he’s had trouble with them. He tells us everyone can get them open but he’s been struggling with them. We see him chopping away trying to get a coconut open and he tells us this isn’t his element at all. He played in the NFL but cannot get a coconut open. He says it’s tough out here!

     

    Ashley says JP is becoming dreamier and dreamier as the days go on. Every time he comes out of the ocean with a different animal something goes on inside her. He’s becoming a provider and making himself useful and less and less like Alan as the days go by. Ashley says they can’t talk to each other though, because Alan went nuts on day two and called them some kind of power couple. So if Alan sees anything between her and JP he’ll go off again and she’s ready for him to go.

     

    Ashley is talking to Ben and she says JP has been fishing and Alan is getting coconuts and it’s like they are trying to make themselves valuable. Ashley says Alan makes his moves out loud and it doesn’t seem like a safe bet. Ben says neither is JP and he’s a puppy waiting to be led and Ashley says but he could be our puppy, we could train him. Ben says if anyone dangles a piece of meat in front of JP he could go the other way. Ben doesn’t fully trust Ashley at this point because she keeps pulling for JP to stay in the game and that makes him think maybe they are working together and a power couple on Survivor doesn’t work out good.

     

    At the Healers camp, Joe says everything is going great. They are the dominant tribe, everyone is on the same page about Mike being the first vote out because he has them believing Mike has an idol. He’s calm, cool, and collected right now, things couldn’t go better. The only thing is Cole knows he has the idol and he’s concerned about Cole’s relationship with Jessica.

     

    Jessica says the fishing experience is 100% bonding for her and Cole and they are really forming a connection. But in life outside of Survivor she moves like a slug when it comes to romance. She’s from a super religious background and she’s still a virgin. She says being a couple on Survivor is hard and dangerous. Cole asks if she’s enjoying herself and she says yeah, she’s having a blast. Cole guarantees Jessica that she’s safe. Jessica says she better be, he can’t get to the end without her and laughs. Cole tells Jessica that Joe has the hidden immunity idol. Cole is defining her as his dream girl and he wanted to share some information with her. Jessica says having that knowledge brings her so much happiness because secrets are powerful in the game. She’s elated.

     

    At the Hustlers tribe it’s morning and they are just milling about the camp. Patrick heads out into the forest and Ryan watches and he thinks Patrick is searching for the idol. He says it’s Survivor 101 not to search for idols in front of everyone. Patrick tells us he has idol fever and he’s not hiding that he’s looking for it and maybe that will come back and bite him. He works harder than the rest of his tribe members looking for an idol because that’s how he is in everyday life. Ali tries to explain to Patrick the social aspect and tells him people will wonder why he’s worried by looking for an idol. Patrick says Ali telling him to cool it is difficult because he just has to be him.

     

    Back at the Healers tribe, they are cooking and Mike is thanking them for cooking. Joe is saying the potatoes are raw and Desi says she’d eat it and he threw it off into the woods. Desi says that’s kind of off-putting. Roark says Joe is more than welcome to cook next time and he doesn’t know how people can eat raw food. Cole says Joe is rubbing people the wrong way and it bothers him that Joe has the idol and has all the power. Cole pitches to Jessica that if they should lose tonight maybe they should take Joe out. Cole says the idol is unpredictable especially in the wrong person’s hands. Cole tells Roark at camp about Joe having the idol and Jessica is upset. Cole pitches to split the votes if they lose and Roark is buying into the plan. Desi joins them and Cole makes his pitch to her and she notes that Joe complains a lot and Desi is ok with the plan.

     

    Jessica says she’s irritated that Cole ran off at the mouth and he lost a lot of power with her. The last thing they want is Joe to find out that they know because they could play the idol and then any of their heads could be on the chopping block. So maybe blind siding Joe is not the best strategy at this point.

     

    It’s time for the Immunity Challenge. Once again, immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge, you’re going to race through a series of obstacles. You’ll then use sandbags to knock blocks off a ledge. You must then stack those blocks one on top of the other. First two tribes to finish win immunity and are safe from the vote. In addition, we’re playing for reward. The first tribe to finish gets a crate of chickens (4 of them, 1 rooster and 3 hens). The second tribe to finish gets a basket of a dozen eggs courtesy of the first place chickens. Healers are sitting out Mike.

     

    Survivors are all off maneuvering through their obstacles. All tribes are very close at the first check point and they start to maneuver the second obstacle. Heroes are up and over quickly and Ben starts throwing. Roark is the last Healer over and Devon is the last Hustler over. Cole is throwing for the Healer’s and Patrick is throwing for the Hustlers. JP takes over for Ben. Joe switches in for the Healers and Patrick is not switching out. Healers are the first tribe to get all their blocks off and they start collecting blocks. Heroes get their last block off and start collecting. Hustlers still have one left.

     

    Patrick is still throwing and his tribe is asking to switch. Heroes and Healers are all stacking. Patrick finally connects with his last piece and the Hustlers are collecting their blocks. They are climbing on each other to reach the top of the block tower. Joe tells the Healers something is not right, they are missing a block. The block is still on the mat so they have to grab it. Heroes got it and get back to their mat and they win immunity and reward. Jessica back up for the Healers and Hustlers are struggling to get Ryan up to stack. Healers win immunity and reward and the Hustlers are going to tribal council again.

     

    Joe asks Patrick what the feeling is 8 days in and they are going back to tribal with only 5 people. Patrick says it’s depressing knowing they are going back. Lauren says but we’re going and we have to do it. Lauren says Patrick didn’t want to stop and it was like a one-man show. Lauren has played centerfield for 25 years and she thinks everyone is over Patrick and how he cost them today.

     

    Back at the Hustler’s camp Patrick apologizes for not throwing fast enough. Patrick tells us he should have let someone sub in for him and he knows Lauren isn’t happy with him. He doesn’t think she’ll be able to change much. He apologizes again to the tribe and they all say he tried his hardest. Lauren goes down to rinse off and Patrick asks the tribe and Devon says Lauren wants Patrick but everyone else is going to vote her out. Patrick tells us everyone has his back but he doesn’t want her going around worrying. He goes to talk to her and help her enjoy herself here. He approaches her while she’s washing up and he says he feels terrible for not knocking those blocks down. Lauren says she kept offering to switch it. Lauren says she’s bummed out about losing today and she’d rather lose as a team than one person losing for everyone.

     

    Lauren says she knows Patrick is going to write her name down but she’s not going to sit around and do nothing. Lauren talks to Ali and they discuss the challenge. Ali says he’s a competitive person and he’s supposed to be strong in challenges, but they didn’t win and she doesn’t know if it’s an advantage to keep him around. Lauren then talks to Ryan about Patrick and Ryan goes to Devon and Devon says what matters is everyone is coming to them. Ryan says he and Devon are in a position where they dictate the vote and it’s a big decision for them. Ryan says they can get rid of Lauren tonight and just do the boys to the merge and Devon says he’d rather go to the merge with Lauren than Patrick. Devon says if they keep Lauren around they are more likely to lose the next challenge. Lauren feels like she’s done everything she can do but she’s a hustler for a reason. If it is her going home, she won’t go home without a fight.

     

    Jeff asks Lauren at what point do you stop talking about how well you get along and start owning the fact it just isn’t working right now? Lauren says today, that challenge should have been a win for them, but one of them took it and tried to win it by themselves. Jeff says Patrick, she could only be talking about you and Lauren says she is. Patrick says he can see where she is concerned with him not winning that and there’s a point where it could be his fault. Lauren says she agrees, he shouldn’t have taken the whole time himself. Patrick says it’s an adrenaline rush. Lauren says we either lose together or win together and today we didn’t lose together.

     

    Jeff asks Ali what her take was on the challenge. Ali says Patrick did make an executive decision, but she doesn’t know if that has to do with anything. Even if they had switched out, who knows if it would have taken even longer. Patrick asks if that gives him some comfort and he says yes, he tried his best that he won’t be held totally accountable. Lauren says Patrick just doesn’t play as a team like today, and he is constantly looking for an idol. Lauren says she hasn’t looked for the idol yet, but maybe they should all be looking for them.

     

    Lauren says tonight, one of them is going to be blindsided and Patrick says someone will be blindsided for sure. Jeff says Ryan, it’s kind of like you’re in a relationship and Ryan interrupts and says he’s never been in a relationship. You know somebody? Jeff says he was going to say it’s kind of like if you’re in a relationship and you go to therapy and the therapist says let’s talk and get things moving. Ryan says he does feel that way because every member of the group is thinking it’s a happy group and they aren’t a happy group and they aren’t a successful group either. Jeff says Devon, is it possible part of the problem of the group is just chemistry and he says yeah, that’s where his vote is kind of going tonight. Lauren says that’s where her vote is going to. Ryan says whenever the merge comes we have to be able to best discern which groups we can best fit into because we have nothing to offer at this point. Patrick says he thinks that’s something he can offer because he can comfort people. Jeff says Ali, that sounds like an honest statement and Ali says that’s what he thinks. But we’ve been here for eight days and he hasn’t been able to get along with Lauren. Patrick says he is taking criticism so he can learn from it and grow for the experience.

     

    Jeff says to Ryan is it too big of a stretch to say that moments like that between Lauren, Ali, and Patrick can flip a tribe? Ryan says tribal council has so much momentum and you can gain so much because you can come together as a group and say this is the moment we’re going to shine up this crappy little tricycle and try and sell it to the other tribes that have had success. Now they aren’t saying they are going to be used as pawns but they also understand they aren’t coming in as CEO’s, they might be mopping the floor at first, but they aren’t giving up. They are the only tribe who is going to have real unity and that’s something unique about them that the others won’t have.

     

    Time to vote! Jeff is going to tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and wants to play it, now would be the time to do so. Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Jeff reads the votes. First vote, Patrick. Lauren. Patrick. Third person voted out of Survivor, Patrick. Patrick just sits there and looks at the others for a minute. He says they are awful. Jeff snuffs the torch and Patrick gives them another last look before leaving. Jeff says well tribal is an end for somebody, but it also appears to be a rebirth for the rest of the tribe.

     

    Next time on Survivor…just when you think you’re on top, the game flips upside down! They drop their buffs and they are switching tribes!


  25. The final night of the blind auditions is here! Adam starts the night needed 2 artists to complete his team, while Blake, Jennifer, and Miley each need one. Our coach’s will fight hard for the perfect voice’s to complete their teams. And Miley is on the verge of making Voice history. After the final chair turns, stay tuned for a sneak peek at this season’s game changing battles. The final blind audition’s start right now!

     

    As our coaches head to their chairs, the final artists of the blind auditions look forward to their turns on The Voice stage. Our first artist is Kristi Hoopes from Parker, CO. She’s loved country music since she was little, but she puts her own hippie chick spin on it. After high school, she moved to Murfreesboro, TN to study music and be close to Nashville.

     

    Kristi takes the stage and sings Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love by Trisha Yearwood. The judges are listening closely and Blake hears heels clicking. Blake hits his button and Adam hits a few moments later. Jennifer turns toward the end. Kristi is a 3-chair turn.

     

    Miley says she is what Adam was looking forward. Adam says he thinks Kristi is brilliant and not a cookie cutter artist. He thinks she can win this thing. Jennifer says she heard the sass and she has a big voice and Jennifer knows a little about that too. She says Kristi could go outside the norm. Blake says none of the other coaches probably even knew who sang that song. Blake says he knows there are artists that are her hero and it opens up the door for all eras of country music and that’s what he does.

     

    Miley says who do you pick as your coach? Blake says come on Kristi, this is for real. Kristi says in her gut, in her heart, and her soul she needs to pick…Blake. She feels Blake can get her to where she wants to be.

     

    Blake says there is no doubt about it, he has the team to beat. Blake’s team is full!

     

    The next artist to take the stage is Michael Kight and he’s from Dublin, GA. His dad raised him on Motown and Elvis and Johnny Cash. He taught himself how to play Folsom Prison Blues and his dad says he is very gifted. He says you might think he’s a country singer, but he’s more of a soul, pop guy. He’s been following Maroon 5 since Songs About Jane. He’s been in Nashville the last few years.

     

    Michael takes the stage and sings Sugar by Maroon 5, but with his own spin. The judges listen closely and Miley says it’s good. Adam hits his button as Michael gets into the chorus. Jennifer is looking like she wants to hit her button, but she’s holding back. Jennifer tells Adam Michael almost had her. Michael is a 1-chair turn. Miley says she messed up. Adam says there was no chance he wasn’t going with him. Adam says he did a cool interesting take on the song. Michael says he’s extremely excited.

     

    With three spots left, let’s see if the next artist can fight his way onto a team. Jeremiah Miller from Fort Worth, TX. He was a wrestler and so was his dad in high school. He talks about his diet to make the weight for his team. After wrestling season was over, he was in a couple of different boy bands. His mom says of all the things she’s seen him do it seems music is in his soul and what he’s most passionate about. He just graduated from high school and The Voice is important for him because of where he is in life.

     

    Jeremiah steps up to the stage and sings Slow Hands by Niall Horner. Adam hits his button pretty quickly and then Jennifer follows a few moments later. Miley is dancing in her seat, as is Blake. Jeremiah is a 2-chair turn.

     

    Miley says she’s excited to see what Jeremiah’s coach does with his voice because she’d like to hear more grittiness in his tone. Jennifer says she just left The Voice UK and she won and Adam says he’s won The Voice USA many times. Adam says he’s going to be honest, there were some flaws but there are some raw qualities that he liked. Jennifer says he seems like a full package and she thinks he could be major.

     

    Miley says who do you pick as your coach? Jeremiah says the first song he ever learned was Won’t Go Home Without You and Adam gets excited. Jeremiah says but…I pick Jennifer. Jennifer’s team is full!

     

    Serina Rae is the next artist who will perform and she just finished high school and was going to join the navy until she got the call to perform on The Voice. She covers Selena’s songs and she performs at restaurants in Florida. Her father went through two tours in Vietnam and her brother is a Marine and has been away for 2-years and is about to deployed again. The song she’s going to sing in Spanish and English.

     

    Serina sings Stand By Me by Ben E. King. Miley thinks there are two people. Adam also thinks it’s two people. Serina does not get a chair turn. Miley says woah! Adam says I thought you were one person! Adam says it was cool and she has a strong voice. Miley says when she sang in her upper range she had a full voice, but struggled with the lower notes. Blake thought it was cool the way she went back and forth between the languages.

     

    With the blind auditions nearing the end, Adam and Miley are feeling the pressure to find the perfect artists to complete their teams. We see Austin Serrato who sang Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers, Raycee Jones who sang We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off by Jermaine Stewart, and Nik Singleton who sang Wide Open Spaces by The Dixie Chicks, none of whom got a chair turn.

     

    Let’s see if the next artist has what Adam and Miley are looking for. Megan Rose is from San Francisco, CA. She grew up on country music and listened to that all her life. She went to college close to home because she likes being close to her family. Right now she tries to get out and perform, but being a country artist in San Francisco is difficult.

     

    Megan takes the stage and sings Ode to Billy Joe by Bobby Gentry. Blake tells them it’s good. Miley listens and looks at Adam. Miley says she’s going and she hits her button and Adam presses at the same time. Megan got a 2-chair turn.

     

    Miley says please pick me and she goes up to give Megan a hug. Adam invites Megan down to sit in his chair. Miley says she’s on the verge of making HERstory on The Voice because she’s about to have the first all-girl team. Adam says that means you have to compete with 11 other females and Miley says that’s powerful. Adam says as a coach, he wants Megan to be comfortable. Adam says her decision should be based on who will be the better coach for her. Jennifer says it would be so powerful to see an all-female team. Miley says she didn’t come here to do that, but she just followed the yellow brick road to Oz.

     

    Megan returns to the stage and Jennifer says it’s time for her to pick her coach. Megan says I pick…Miley. Miley says Megan is part of something so much bigger. Miley’s team is full!

     

    The final artist of the night is Gary Carpenter from Oswego, NY. He played baseball his entire life and he went to college to play baseball, but his grades suffered. He started singing in high school and his favorite show to do was Beauty and the Beast and he got to play Gaston. He does a lot of gigs at bars and restaurants and that’s where he met his fiance. His nerves are through the roof.

     

    Gary takes the stage and sings Home by Michael Buble. Adam turns and Gary gets emotional and his fiancé back stage is excited and crying. Miley starts peeking around the chair and Jennifer takes a peek too. Gary got the last chair turn. Adam says he did lose his mind when he turned, but he wanted to thank him because Gary gets to go home knowing he was the guy who he sat there waiting for driving everyone crazy. Adam’s team is full!

     

    Just when the artist’s thought making a team was hard, keeping their place on it will be a battle. Teammates must face off with a spot on their coach’s team at stake. To help our coaches prepare their artist’s for the fight of their lives, they invited country music superstars Rascall Flatts, Kelly Rowland, Joe Jonas, and Billy Ray Cyrus. The artists will have to dig deep if they hope to win or be stolen. The battles begin next week!
