The Voice is back! Taking our coaches chairs for season 13 is Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levin, country artist, Blake Shelton, returning to the voice, Miley Cyrus, and making her debut, Jennifer Hudson. The season 13 blind auditions are here! Let’s meet the first artist of the season.

 

Chris Weaver is the first artist who has experience performing on stage, under a different name. He is a worship leader during the day and a drag queen at night. His drag character is Niedra Belle. He wants to take this opportunity and show the world who he is. He has sung in front of Jennifer Hudson before and it would be mind-blowing if she turned for him, but he would love to work with Adam.

 

Chris takes the stage and sings Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding. Adam is the first to hit his button very early and Jennifer quickly follows. As he gets to the chorus Miley hits her button and Blake follows. We have our first four chair turn of the season. Jennifer asks for Miley’s shoe and Adam takes his shoe off and throws it at Chris. Chris says Jennifer was about to do what she did 2 years ago when he sang for her. Adam takes his jacket off.

 

Jennifer says where she comes from throwing a shoe is a compliment. Adam is standing on his chair and Adam asks his name. Miley says she would love nothing more to have him on her team and she’s so thirsty to win and she wants to do it with him. Jennifer says because she is extremely passionate about him she wants to know what he wants. He says he grew up in church but he’s ready to expand into something different. Jennifer says she grew up in church too and she also visited a drag queen show in Chicago.

 

Blake asks how he’s doing. He says he’s won the show with country artist, pop artists, R&B, but he’s never won the show with a drag queen. Blake says it was his birthday and Chris didn’t give him anything and he could make it the greatest birthday of his life if he picked him as his coach. Adam says he constantly battles for his team. He says he’s a phenomenal singer, but he’s more special than that. Miley says she learned on season 11 that song choice is important and she thinks she can help him pick the right songs. Jennifer wants to say one more thing. She says he has a voice, but the bigger part of the equation is having a plan and she has that because she’s walked that path.

 

Adam says it’s time for Chris to pick his coach. Chris says because they are in such a similar place, he has to go with…JHud! Adam says Chris broke his heart. Coming up, Season 13 is just getting started and with Jennifer Hudson in the coach’s chair, anything is possible.

 

While our coaches get ready, let’s meet the next artist. Next is Mitchell Lee and he’s a wood worker in Nashville, Tn. He builds custom furniture. His original plan was to go to military college and then go to dental school. His mom said she’d support him but she said she couldn’t see him as a dentist. After his mom unexpectedly passed away when he was 22, he decided to give music a shot because his mom always saw him as an artist. He can’t believe he’s about to sing for 4 megastars.

 

Mitchell takes the stage and he sings Hold My Hand by Hootie and the Blowfish. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake sits forward and looks at the other judges and Adam hits his button, which prompts Blake to hit his and then Jennifer follows with hers. He gets a three chair turn and Adam is on his feet.

 

Adam says Hootie! He says he traversed a lot of ground. He’s done simple pop rock and roll and then moved into country. Blake throws in his name is Darius. Adam says Blake is nervous Adam is going to steal Mitchell. Adam says when Mitchell hit the big notes it was extremely dynamic and he thinks he can go far on the show. Miley asks if he has always been a singer and he says no he was going to be a dentist. Jennifer says she’d be uncomfortable in his dentist chair with him looking like that. Blake says Mitchell sounds country to him and Mitchell says he is southern, but he likes rock. Blake says he’d love to have a chance to work with him on his team. Jennifer says he was so in it and his energy helped guide the notes and he was so comfortable.

 

Miley says it’s the magic time and you have to pick a coach. Mitchell takes his time but he picks…Blake. Mitchell is walking back stage and says that was a rush. Adam congratulates Blake on his acquisition and he tells us he and Blake are going to be nice to each other this season, but he doesn’t think it will last.

 

#VOICE The next artist has been through a lot to get here. Janice Freeman is next and she is from California. When her daughter was 4 her father passed away of cancer and in 2012 she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She says she has to fight for her daughter and today she is cancer free. She met her husband while she was fighting cancer and they just celebrated their 2-year anniversary. She fought her whole life for this moment and she cannot and will not let it go.

 

Janice takes the stage and sings Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Jennifer looks like she wants to hit her button, but she pulls back. Adam says woah and looks like he might want to hit but he waits. Jennifer hits her button with Miley right behind and Janice hits the chorus for the second time. She got a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam asks what her name is and she says Janice. Adam says she turned in that song into something swampy. He says if she needs help on who to choose to let him know. Miley says she liked that better than the original and she likes women who come out and do what she just did with no fear. Miley thinks she’s the best coach for Janice. Jennifer says she doesn’t have any fear either. Jennifer thinks the two of them together could knock down some serious walls. Blake asks if she’s sung all her life and Janice says yes and tells a little of her back story. Miley and Jennifer go up to give her a hug. Miley says no matter what maybe she will be the reason why someone just like her will walk through the next season.

 

Adam asks who Janice picks as her coach. She says it’s hard, but she picks…Miley. Jennifer says it’s the first time her and Miley went head to head and Miley won that one, but she’ll keep her eye on her. Put yourself in the judges chairs and get The Voice app and build your own team!

 

Next to the stage is Xaris from Florida and she loves folk music. Her mother says she’s an old soul and she loves music that tells a story. As she got more into music she started picking up more instruments. She plays the guitar, the harmonica, the ukulele, the banjo, the pennywhistle, and the mandolin. She works at a frozen yogurt shop and she uses her income to buy things she loves. She wants to do music full time. She says the judges may be shocked to see a 17-year old girl singing a song from 50 years ago.

 

Xaris hits the stage and sings Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right by Bob Dylan. The judges all sit and look deep in thought. Her family is backstage saying come on. No judges hit their button. Adam says she sounds years beyond her age. Blake says she sounds awesome. Miley says she’s so super cool and super unique.

 

While tonight’s nervous singers wait to perform, the next artist hopes her surprising voice gets the coach’s attention. Shi’ann Jones sings Drown in My Own Tears by Ray Charles. Jennifer Hudson wastes no time in turning around and threatens the other judges not to turn around. While Jennifer is focusing on Adam and Miley, Blake hits his button and turns and Jennifer throws her notebook at him. Blake was the only other judge brave enough to turn around and she ends up a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam asks how old she is and Shi’ann says she is 15. Miley wished she pushed and Adam says he wanted to push for her because Jennifer threatened to kill him. Miley says she was threatening people. Jennifer says as soon as Shi’ann opened her mouth she hit her button and then she started threatening. Jennifer says her voice is undeniable and Blake says can he talk now and Jennifer says I told you not to turn around! Jennifer says she is so excited about her. Adam says Blake it’s time for you to talk. Blake asks where she’s from and she says Bowling Green, Kentucky. Blake says her and Jennifer are similar as artists, but that doesn’t have anything to do with being a coach on the show. He says it’s about making sure she has the best possible performance every time she’s on the stage and he may not be the obvious choice, but he's passionate about being her coach.

 

Adam asks who she picks as her coach. Shi’ann takes a moment and picks…Jennifer. Jennifer says she is so excited to work with her.

 

It’s night one of the blind auditions. The next artist is Dave Crosby and he says you may recognize him from YouTube where he sings song with his 4-year old daughter, Claire. He says the video went super viral and got invitations to perform on TV shows. She was on Little Big Shots and The Ellen Show. He didn’t know if he could provide for his daughter by being a musician so he changed directions. He says Claire loves The Voice and she gets excited on chair turns.

 

Dave takes the stage and playing guitar sings I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie. Adam hits his button very quickly. Blake hits as he sings the last line and Miley decides to hit her button too. Adam says he’s so pissed off at the other judges for turning around. He let a wow slip out and he was trying to show no emotion. He says he turned impulsively and the purity and beauty of his voice is irreplaceable. Jennifer asks what inspired him to sing and he talks about how his daughter brought music back to his life. Adam just realizes he’s the guy from YouTube with his daughter and they want her to come out so they can sing the song. She sings You Got a Friend In Me for the judges while her dad plays guitar.

 

Blake says he wants Dave on his team, but he’d really like to have Claire. Adam says when he had his baby girl it was one of the most amazing moments in his life and he seen the video of Dave singing with his daughter and he lost it. Miley says she started singing when she was 4-years old and she can relate. Blake says that’s incredible, but his voice and how it made at least three of them feel. He says it sounds like his voice has its own echo chamber. Adam says Dave is the guy we have to focus on and he would be honored to have him on his team.

 

Jennifer says who will your coach be? Dave looks to his wife and she shrugs. He’s going to pick…Adam. Adam says he had a rough start but he finally prevailed. Adam goes back to greet Dave’s family and picks up Claire.

 

While Dave celebrates making a team, the next artist is getting ready to return to The Voice stage after years of waiting. Odiseas auditioned season 3 when he was 15. He says he used his rejection as fuel to the fire and got back on the horse. He feels like this is happening at the perfect time. He says it’s been a lot of finding himself as an artist and a lot of growing up. He’s been preparing for this moment for a long time.

 

Odiseas takes the stage and sings Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag by James Brown. The judges are all listening and bobbing their heads. Blake reaches for his button but hesitates and never pushes. Blake immediately looks down like he regrets it. Jennifer Hudson says the song was too over characterized and they couldn’t focus on his voice. Miley says there is such a thing as a total package and she is in love with him and wants to turn the chairs around. Blake says when someone is so far out of his music lane he relies on the other three. Adam tells him not to wait to come back, third times a charm. Miley thinks they made a mistake.

 

The next artist is Esera Tuaolo from the island of Hawaii, but he currently lives in Minneapolis, Mn. He got drafted to the Green Bay Packers, and also played for the Vikings, the Falcons, the Jaguars, and went to the superbowl with Atlanta and finished up with Carolina. He put singing on the back burner because of football but he got a chance to follow his dream and he’s ready to win this. He says when he came out to his family that he was gay it was like a huge mountain crumbled. He fell into depression for a time, and now to pursue a singing career, he thought it was lost. He says this is an opportunity to reach for the stars and be true to himself.

 

Esera takes the stage and he sings Rise Up by Andra Day. The judges are all listening intently. Jennifer hits her button after he hits the chorus. Blake continues listening intently and eventually hits his button as well. Esera is a 2-chair turn. Blake says he hit his button too and he was singing to Jennifer. Adam says he could feel his presence. Adam says he’s a total moron. Jennifer says that is one of her favorite songs and that’s probably what caught her attention. Blake says when he turned around Esera was so focused on Jennifer. Blake says he’s a country singer, but he’s worked with a lot of different artists. He says he’s a football geek and he’d probably drive him nuts.

 

Adam says it’s time for Esera to pick a coach. His children backstage think he’s going to pick Blake. Esera takes a minute and he picks…Blake. Blake says he was starting to fan out and he’s probably going to get on his nerves because he’s a huge football fan.

 

With mounting pressure to make a team, the artist’s count on inspiration and support from friends and family. But the next artist has made a career out of inspiring others. Brandon Showell is a 7th grade English teacher. He says his students know he studied music in college, but they don’t know he gigs on weekends. He says a couple of days after the blind auditions he’s going to get married to his fiancé. He got excited when he heard Jennifer Hudson was going to be on the show because he’s a fan of hers.

 

Brandon takes the stage and sings There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back by Shawn Mendes. Adam hits his button as he hits the chorus. The other judges are bobbing their heads and Jennifer and Miley both decide to hit at the same time. Brandon got a 3-chair turn and Adam gets on his feet with Jennifer and Miley right behind. Jennifer asks if he sings for a living. Brandon says he started on cruise ships and Jennifer says she started on cruise ships too. Jennifer says from that experience she can help him go where he wants to go. He then tells them he’s a full time English teacher.

 

Adam says he turned his chair much, much noticeably faster than the other two. He says when he heard him singing nothing else mattered. Adam says he’s amazing. Miley says she did a TV show like that where she went to school by day and performed at night and she doesn’t think he should lead two separate lives.

 

Blake asks Brandon who he picks as his coach. Brandon thinks about it and decides to pick…Adam. Brandon thinks Adam will help him the most with stage presence and confidence.

 

Next we have Lucas Holliday from Lansing, Michigan. He’s a cashier at a local store. He says he doesn’t look like how he sounds. He says Maxwell is one of his influences. He was contacted by Maxwell and he got an invitation to come sing with him and he says it was an experience like no other.

 

Lucas takes the stage and sings This Woman’s Work by Maxwell. The judges are listening closely and they keep looking at each other. Jennifer puts her hand on the button, but then pulls it back. Jennifer finally gives in and hits her button and turns. When she turns her jaw drops. Lucas is a 1-chair turn and is on Jennifer Hudson’s team. When the chairs turn Blake asks where the guy was who was singing. Miley thinks something that’s going to be really cool for Jennifer because they can go anywhere and she’s the best coach for him. Jennifer says we have to sing something together after that. Carson says this will be one of the best pairings they’ve ever had on the show. Adam says unbelievable.

 

While our coaches head to their chairs, let’s meet the next artist. Brooke Simpson and she is 100% native America. Her tribe is about 4000 people and they still have a pow wow every year. Her parents are full time evangelists and travel and preach and sing at churches. She says The Voice is an opportunity for her to possibly do her music for a living. She says she’s 26 and nothing has happened for her and maybe it’s time to figure out plan b. She thinks when her tribe sees her representing them well it will make them proud.

 

Brooke takes the stage and sings Stone Cold by Demi Lovato. Blake is the first to hit his button with Miley right behind. Jennifer eventually hits her button and Adam is the last to turn. Jennifer gets to her feet and throws her notebook on the floor in front of Brooke and Adam and Miley get to their feet. Brooke got a 4-chair turn. Adam runs up to give her a hug.

 

Miley says Brooke knows she’s good because she’s speechless. Miley says she is awesome. Jennifer asks what does she listen to and what’s on her playlist. Brooke says she listens to all of them, but her main inspiration is her mom. Miley knows Jennifer’s voice is amazing and they have a similar range, but she’s a vested coach and she wants to win the season with her. Jennifer says she threw her notebook at her and that’s a compliment where she comes from. Adam says most people that try to do what she did shouldn’t do it. But Brooke pulled it off and it’s really hard to find and when they see it and Miley interrupts.

 

Miley goes up and grabs her hand and puts it to her heart and says her heart is beating hard. Adam says he wants to help lead her down the right path and get that trophy. Jennifer says with a voice like her it is the trophy. She owned the song and she meant the song. Jennifer says she thought she knew singing until she came out and just did that. Blake says every now and then a singer comes across the stage that simply needs an opportunity and he thinks that’s where she’s at with her talent, artistry, and this is about creating the right moments and opportunities. Adam says he’s really good at picking the right songs and creating the right moments. Miley says she’s very vested in her artists and she wants to get to know her and help her reach her full potential.

 

Adam says Brooke I think it’s time. Brooke looks to her family and her mom is saying it’s a tough choice. Brooke says she picks…Miley. Miley’s mom comes in for a hug and greets Brooke’s family. Brooke says when Miley came up and took her hand and put it on Miley’s heart and she felt it pounding, she knew she had to pick her.

Last night, the world’s biggest and best singing competition returned, along with multi-platinum selling super star Miley Cyrus and new coach award winning vocal icon Jennifer Hudson for our most inspiring season yet. Tonight, our coaches are more determined than ever to find and mentor the greatest voice in America. Premiere week continues right now!

 

While our coaches head to their chairs let’s meet the first artist of the night. We meet Keisha Renee from Inglewood, Ca. Keisha says it’s an advantage the coaches can’t see her because sometimes you judge a book by its cover and she wants to break the mold of what people think country artist’s look like. She grew up in LA but she moved to Houston and it opened her eyes to other genres. She says people told her it was too farfetched for her to be a country artist. She weighed 350 pounds at one point, but after her pregnancy and being diagnosed with diabetes, she made lifestyle changes. Since she lost all the weight she gained the confidence to go after what she wants and her heart and direction is country.

 

Keisha takes the stage and sings I Can’t Stop Loving You by Don Gibson. It immediate catches the attention of Blake and Miley. Blakes hand hovers over his button and finally pushes with Adam right behind and Jennifer a moment later. Miley continues to list and consider it and she finally pushes her button. Keisha got a 4-chair turn. Jennifer throws her notebook at her as Keisha finishes singing.

 

Adam says he was hearing something Blake would do with Jennifer’s voice and with Miley’s style and nothing like him at all. But Los Angeles and Inglewood neighbors, thank God because he has nothing else. He thinks the key to becoming the best version of herself is to not fit in. Jennifer thinks it was genius to take a country song and put in her background. Jennifer loves that she is creating her own lane and that’s what she wants to help her do. And she threw her book at Keisha!

 

Miley says they were all going to turn around no matter what but she was keeping her eye on Blake because this is their expertise. Blake interjects his expertise and Miley says she was born in Nashville. Miley thinks she’s got everything as a coach that Keisha wants to do. Blake says that song has been covered by a lot of people and if country is where she wants to be then she should go with Blake because he moved to Nashville with one goal in mind, to be a country singer.

 

Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Keisha thinks about it and the crowd is yelling at her. Keisha says they all said marvelous things, but she picks…Blake. Keisha tells us she picked Blake because she’s new to country and she thinks he’s the best person to learn from. He’s the king of country!

 

We’re back and Miley has brought her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus. As our coaches get settled, the artist’s eagerly away their auditions. Let’s see if Dylan Gerard can make his music dreams a reality.

 

Dylan takes the stage and sings Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur. The coaches all listen intently. Adam finally hits his button with Jennifer immediately behind. Adam gets on his feet as he finishes and Dylan was a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam says Dylan was so subtle in how he did everything and it was really refreshing. He has a cool vibe and he’s special. Jennifer says what made her turn around was she sees potential. For example, she’d change the key because it seemed slightly low for him and maybe take it up a half step. He sings part of the song in the slightly higher key and she runs up on stage to continue coaching him on how to hit the higher notes in the higher key. Adam says all things happen when they agree to be on your team and Jennifer says they deserve to see a demo of what we can do. Adam says going between those two things in his voice is what he’s worked on his entire career and it’s one of the hardest things for a male artist to do.

 

Blake says Dylan, who do you pick as your coach. Dylan thanks Jennifer so much, but he had to pick Adam. He says he liked Jennifer going into coach mode but he’s been a fan of Maroon 5.

 

Up next is Maharasyi and she’s from Los Angeles. Her family is from Indonesia and she spent a majority of her childhood there. Her aunt was a singer in Indonesia and that’s where she got her love of music from. She’s a wedding singer and now being on The Voice is her biggest opportunity. She’d probably pick Miley as her coach if she turned.

 

Maharasyi takes the stage and sings Tell Me Something Good by Chaka Khan and Rufus. Jennifer is singing along in her chair. Adam is also singing. Jennifer is dancing and hits her button. Miley looks at Adam and then reaches to hit her button. Maharasyi is a 2-chair turn.

 

Jennifer says that was a great song choice and she thinks she chose it because she has soul and a big voice like Chaka. Jennifer says she shied away from the big note and Maharasyi says she’s never tried it because it’s scared her a little. Jennifer says if you can think the note you can hit the note and she wants her to try the last note in full voice. Maharasyi tries it and hits it. Miley felts nerves were holding her back in her performance and she had butterflies that made her voice flutter all over the place. Miley wants her to believe in herself as much as Miley does and she wants to help her train vocally and build her confidence so her nerves don’t get in the way in future rounds.

 

Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Maharasyi looks to her family and she says she picks…Jennifer.

 

We’re going to meet our next artist, Marlo Wells from Fontana, Ca, but he was originally from Detroit, Mi. His father was a Motown legend, Carl Jones and he sang with a group the Love Tones. He sang for Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and Mary Wells. Music has always been in his blood but he spent 30 years in sales for a major insurance company. He’s 61-years old. If he makes a team, then he’ll be the oldest in the history of The Voice. He’d like to work with Jennifer.

 

Marlo takes the stage and sings Love Me Now by John Legend. Jennifer is dancing a little in her chair and talking to Miley. She says he sounds almost country but gospel too. The judges are all looking at each other and Jennifer wants to hit her button but doesn’t. Adam says he got a lot of chatter back there between the judges. He says Jennifer really wanted to turn. Jennifer says she’s so ashamed she can’t even look at him. Miley tells him to please come back but make sure she’s on the show.

 

The next artist is Red Marlow from Dickson, Tn. He says he’s as country as cornbread and as country as you can possibly get. He grew up playing bluegrass and bluegrass gospel. He got to go work immediately for song writers singing demos. If he turns a chair it will help let him know he’s good enough to do this.

 

Red takes the stage with a guitar and sings Swingin by John Anderson. Miley and Blake are looking at each. Blake is bobbing his head and singing along. Blake is watching Miley and she says she’s listening. Blake finally hits and Miley follows. Red got a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam says it’s fun to see someone more country than Blake. Adam says he would have turned but he’s not stupid. Red says he’d still give him a hug. Miley says Red may have it set he wants to go to Blake, but she’s a strong fighter and she came here because she wants to bring a new face to country music. She says growing up she sat with Waylon Jennings and Dolly Parton and she took notes. Blake asks if he’s originally from Tennessee and he says he moved up from Alabama. Red has met Blake but he doesn’t know if he remembers it. Blake says he’s excited for Red and he’d like to see him get the opportunity he deserves. Miley says he won’t get lost on her team and she knows he wants to prove himself and that’s what she wants to do.

 

Blake says let’s not monkey around, let’s do what’s right. Adam says Red, who do you pick as your coach. Red says he really does appreciate everything Miley said but he does have to pick Blake.

 

Next is Ashland Craft from Piedmont, SC. For the past two years she’s had a steady gig at a honky tonk. Her dad has been a mechanic his whole life and he’s always tried to buy things that help her reach her dreams and goals. He has helped her become a better musician. She says The Voice is her chance to reach her dream. She’s hoping and praying she has what it takes.

 

Ashland takes the stage and sings You Are My Sunshine in the style of Chris Stapleton. Blake immediately says woah! Miley! He then hits his button. Adam and Miley both hit their buttons. Miley yells Blake this is it! He says he’s nervous. Jennifer is dancing and listening but doesn’t turn. Miley says she loves it!

 

Miley says she’s been looking for her and Blake gives a yee-haw. Miley says it’s about to go down. Miley says she has those boots and Adam says so do I. Adam says whatever she says I do too. Miley covers that song on her tour and Adam says he does to. Miley says Blake is the King of Country but they need a queen and it could be her. She wants her and Ashland to be a power team of two females who aren’t afraid to be the punk rock Dollly Parton and she says Adam is from LA.

 

Adam says full disclosure I am not country. He has been fighting this fight and failing for so many season but he picks himself up every time. He says a lot do go to Blake, but she’s such a powerful female country rock and roll singer, she’s going to transcend the necessity to go to Blake’s team. Adam says please know he’d be working double time to make sure he didn’t let her down.

 

Blake says he doesn’t know why she’d experiment. He always dreamt his whole life of being a country singer on the radio. He recognizes the traditional sound she has and there hasn’t been a voice like hers since Gretchen Wilson. He says there’s a total open lane for her right now and that’s why he wants to be her coach. Adam says people will be more interested in him and her. Miley says for once she’s not the craziest decision.

 

Jennifer says I don’t want to get in the middle of this craziness! It’s time for you to make your decision. Ashland says she didn’t know it would be this hard. Ashland picks…Miley! Ashland says she was deadest on Blake, but she looked at Miley and she’s had experience and country but also branched out and it seemed like the right fit for her.

We begin the night with a message from The Voice. We are all profoundly shaken by the horrific tragedy that occurred last night in Las Vegas, which was especially heartbreaking knowing that people were gathered in celebration of life, love, and music.

 

“The Voice” stands in unity with all those affected, and hopes the power of music will continue to inspire, comfort, and bring us together.

 

Let’s meet our first artist of the night Adam Cunningham from Nashville, Tn. Adam sings in studios for demos to pitch songs to artist’s for a living. He says he’s fortunate to get to do what he loves to support his family. Adam takes the stage and sings Midnight Rider by The Allman Brothers Band. Blake hits his button pretty quickly and immediately gets on his feet. Jennifer and Adam are looking at each other and Adam begs Jennifer to hit her button. Jennifer gets to her feet and Miley is encouraging her to hit her button. Jennifer sits back down and hits on the last note. Adam got a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam says he was thinking about it but he didn’t want to cry today but then he seen Jennifer turn and he was like, here we go. Miley says Adam could benefit from Jennifer because she’s full of soul and Blake might be the obvious choice but Jennifer did win the last season of The Voice UK. Jennifer says she can teach him something about soul which is something Blake can’t do. Blake says country music is the story of those of us who listen to music on the radio. He loves that he’s from Nashville. Jennifer says did you know I auditioned for a show like this?

 

Adam says this should be interesting, who do you pick as your coach? Adam C. thanks Jennifer and he has a lot of respect for her, but he picks Blake for his coach.

 

The next artist is Hannah Mrozak from Richfield, Wi. She’s done musicals and started a band when she was 13. She says she has a loving, supportive, energetic family and her brother is the one who pushed her to audition for the show. Last year, her brother Mason committed suicide. Her brother would want her to have the greatest time on stage and she knows this is just the beginning.

 

Hannah takes the stage and sings Starving by Hailee Steinfeld. Blake seems to enjoy it and hits his button pretty quickly. Adam turns his chair right after and Jennifer follows along behind. Miley is listening carefully. Hannah is a 3-chair turn.

 

Adam says she could be a really proficient singer and still not have tone, but she does. He says people adore this style of music and it’s been done wrong so many times, and when you hear someone do it right it’s so refreshing. He thinks she should make a smart decision and choose him as her coach. Jennifer says she’s a beautiful girl with a beautiful voice and she has the tools she needs to transcend into the music industry. Blake asks where she’s from and says he’s performed in Wisconsin. He says she seems like a back-up singer because she has such comfort on the stage and she seemed oblivious to the chaos going on. He’d be honored to have her on his team. Adam says his team is all male and she’d have a marquee position on his team. Jennifer says you should ask why he doesn’t have any females and you should beware of Blake because he called you a back-up singer.

 

Miley says it’s time to pick your coach. Hannah thanks them all for turning around and seeing something in her, but she has to pick…Adam.

 

While the coaches get settled again we’re going to meet the next artist Shilo Gold from Denver, Co. She went to a performing arts school and Berkley in Boston. She booked over 85 shows in 7 countries being her own manager and own booking agent and trying to connect with as many people as possible. Her journey has led her to The Voice and she’s a big fan of the coaches but if she got to pick, she’d pick Jennifer Hudson.

 

Shilo takes the stage and sings Stay With Me Baby by Lorraine Ellison. The coaches all look at each other and listen intently. They keep hesitating and looking at each other. Shilo is finishing her song and Jennifer and Miley both hit at the very last second. Shilo got a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam asks her if she thought it was over because they waited until the very last second. Blake says he thought aww, too bad but then oh, she’s in. He was shocked. Miley says she has Jennifer’s range and her rasp and if they could combine their voices, it might be her. Jennifer doesn’t think she’s ever heard a voice like hers because it’s so unique.

 

Adam says Shilo, who do you pick as your coach? Shilo takes a minute and then picks…Miley. She says that was the hardest decision and she thinks Miley will be the best coach for her voice.

 

Our next artist is Samantha Rios from Arlington, Va. She’s a first generation American and she likes to sing in English and Spanish. She thinks the song she’s going to sing is perfect for her because it has a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of soul.

 

Samantha is ready to perform and she sings Something’s Got a Hold On Me by Etta James. Adam and Jennifer are bobbing their heads. Adam says he could hear a great voice but he was waiting for another gear and that’s why he didn’t connect with it. Jennifer says she didn’t tap into the low notes like she did the high notes. Jennifer says she has to sing those low notes too. Jennifer says she hopes Samantha takes their notes and comes back. She thinks it was just a matter of a different song.

 

The next artist is Noah Mac from Dublin, Ca. He’s 17 and a few years ago he turned a shed in his back yard into a music studio and that’s where he spends most of his time. His music is influenced by soul, R&B, and gospel. His father says it’s like he’s made out of music. Noah says his parents first noticed his love of music when he asked to perform at his sister’s funeral. His mom says it took them out of their saddest moment for a second because his singing was so beautiful.

 

Noah comes onto the stage and sings Way Down We Go by Kaleo. The crowd immediately likes it. Adam is bobbing his head and looking at the other coaches. Blake readjusts and looks down the line. Jennifer is listening closely and then hits her button as he hits a high note. Blake looks like he’s reluctant but hit his button. Noah is a 2-chair turn.

 

Jennifer says he was so passionate and it came from his soul and she felt it. She says he was taking her on a journey and she felt like she was on a roller coaster. Blake says his voice is so powerful and when he got into the upper parts of the vocal his voice stayed round like they were in the lower vocal and that’s rare. Blake says a man that can sing at his own sister’s funeral can handle the pressure of The Voice.

 

Adam says ok, Noah, it’s time. Who do you pick as your coach? Noah hesitates and looks around and says he’s going to have to pick…Blake.

 

Next let’s meet Davon Fleming from Baltimore, Md. His love was music and church and he’s a worship leader and he works with a few choirs arranging music. His mom wanted to be a singer but when she had children her dreams got put on hold. He says it means a lot for him to be there because the coaches are grade A superstars.

 

Davon steps up and begins to sing Me and Mrs. Jones. Jennifer hits her button immediately, followed by Miley, Adam, and then Blake. All four coaches have turned very quickly and they all get to see him perform. Jennifer has her shoe off and we see Carson and his family backstage with their shoes off and Jennifer finally throws her shoe. Davon is a 4-chair turn.

 

Jennifer says Davon can sing and asks where he’s from. He answers and says Adam is standing up? Adam says if you don’t pick me I’ll sit down. Jennifer says she’s never seen the panel this speechless. Blake says he’ll be in the finale and Miley says 100%. Miley says she got to see his whole performance and it was inspiring. Jennifer asks who inspired him and he says his mom and Whitney Houston and Jennifer says her too! Jennifer says she started out just like him on a stage like this. Jennifer asks what his favorite Whitney song is and he says he grew up on The Bodyguard soundtrack and Miley says her godmother wrote the song I Will Always Love You. She says to her it’s a Dolly Parton song, to Jennifer it’s a Whitney song. Jennifer goes up and sings I Will Always Love You with him.

 

Adam says he needs to say one thing, he says having a bond and a connection is great, but having someone who will help him achieve what he wants to is important and he shouldn’t be discounted as coach. Blake says if he wants to inspire the most amount of people he can inspire, that can come with winning The Voice and he happens to special in winning the show.

 

Adam says ok, it’s time to pick your coach. Davon says he picks….please help him Jesus. He’s going to have to pick…Jennifer.

 

The next artist is Kathrina Feigh from the Philippines. She grew up in the Philippines and they would have a karaoke machine in the front yard and having a singing party. Her family is very close knit. She was 9 when they moved to Los Angeles and her parents are giving her support and love to help her make her dreams come true. She says her parents were a little nervous when she said she wanted to go to school for music because they wanted her to be a pharmacist or a nurse, but they support her.

 

Kathrina is ready to perform and she sings Big White Room by Jessie J. The coaches are listening and the crowd is starting to get into it. Blake is sitting there with his hand on his button. Jennifer has her hand on her button and says she likes her and finally presses and then Blake hits at the very last second. She’s a 2-chair turn.

 

Jennifer didn’t even see Blake turn his chair. Miley thinks Kathrina should work with Jennifer. Jennifer says her voice was amazing and she couldn’t help but turn her chair. Blake says there’s a very broad spectrum of what he thinks she could be musically and she’s the kind of artist that can get him to turn around and he has to have that on his team.

 

Miley says Kathrina, who do you pick as your coach. Kathrina says I pick…Jennifer.

 

As the night wore on, Jennifer and Blake continued hearing voices they wanted for their teams. We see Alexandra Joyce who sang Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift and she was a 3-chair turn with Adam, Blake, and Jennifer, and she picked Jennifer. We see Eric Lyn who sang Ooh Child by The Five Stairsteps and he was a 1-chair turn by Jennifer. Next we see Anna Catherine DeHart who sang I Could Use a Love Song by Maren Morris who was a 2-chair turn with Blake and Adam and she picked Blake.  

 

The next artist to perform is Addison Agen from Ft. Wayne, In. Her dad owns a record store so music is around all the time. Her dad just had a stage put in the store and she was the first to perform on it. Her mom is a music therapist with the elderly. Her genre is alternative folk and all the coaches would be great for.

 

Addison takes the stage and sings Jolene by Ray LaMontagne. Adam hits his button first. Miley hits her a few moments later. She gets emotional at the very end and she is a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam says Addison is one of his favorite singers. He says she’s 16 and sang like a grown woman. He says she’s full of life and power and emotional and he’s a huge fan of her and probably the most talented person her age since Danielle Bradbury. Miley says she feels like she can relate to her in a way Adam can’t. Miley says all those little cracks in her voice she had too. Adam says but he’s her biggest fan.

 

Blake says ok, Addison, who do you pick as your coach? Addison says she really just, she has to go with…Miley. She feels like she’s a younger version of Miley.

 

We’re going to meet an artist with a familiar face. We see Adam Pearce who auditioned last season. Adam says he went home and was disappointed and he couldn’t ask for a more supportive wife. He consulted two vocal coaches who gave him some drills. He says he was born in the wrong generation, he loves classic rock. He’s going to sing a Foreigner song and his mom loves the song choice. He thinks what’s cool this time around is there are two new singers who haven’t heard him yet.

 

Adam takes the stage and sings Hot Blooded by Foreigner. Adam is bobbing his head and Blake is leaned forward. Adam looks at Miley and hits his button with Miley hitting with him. Blake is still listening and bobbing his head and Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Adam got a 2-chair turn.

 

Blake says second time’s a charm. Adam says you look familiar and Adam P. says he was advised to come back and he’s so excited. Miley says she’ll change her name to Adam he was so amazing and her mom is probably on a table somewhere banging her head. Adam says people were cheering for Adam P. before he started. Jennifer says she loved his sass and conviction but she didn’t want to compete with the other two. Blake supports Miley as a coach for Adam P. Adam says this needs to go the way we think it needs to go.

 

Adam says it’s time for you to pick. Adam P. hesitates and considers and he picks Adam.

 

Hopefully, our coaches for the next artist, Myles Frost from Washington D.C. His grandmother had a little piano and when he was 5 he would listen to music in the car with her and he played a song after hearing a song on the radio. Since then he’s learned 4 other instruments. He plays saxophone, drums, tuba, and trumpet, but his favorite instrument to play is piano. His mom is so proud and he just graduated from high school and she couldn’t be more excited for him.

 

Myles takes the stage and sings My Cherie Amour by Stevie Wonder. The coaches are looking at each other and listening. He does not get any chairs to turn. Adam says he could hear the beauty in his voice, but he could also hear the nerves. Adam tells him to go work on his craft and come back. Jennifer says Stevie Wonder is not easy to sing and on a song like that you have to control the melody.

 

The final artist of the night is Moriah Formica from Latham, NY. Her dad brought her up on 80s hair metal and she’s been singing when she was 9. She started taking voice lessons when she was 11 and that was when she realized she wanted to do this. Her brother is her best friend and her mood improves when he’s around. She’d be thankful for anyone to turn around for her. Adam would be her first choice, but Jennifer is great.

 

Moriah takes the stage with a guitar and sings Crazy On You by Heart. The coaches are looking at each other and Adam says she’s really good. Miley is the first to hit her button. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake hits his button with Adam right behind and Jennifer follows along. Moriah got a 4-chair turn.

 

Miley says she had a feeling her voice was going to be bigger than she was going to be. Adam says a pint sized power house. Jennifer says she just proved it doesn’t matter how old you are if you put your time and passion in your craft. Jennifer would support her path. Blake says when someone likes her comes out and she has all that talent it’s almost not fair but it’s about having someone in her corner who believes in her. She should join team Blake. Miley says she’s the youngest on the panel and she could give big sister voice. She could keep her head on her shoulders and she’d loved to be her coach. Adam says she’s an old soul and she showed him she has a good knowledge of rock and roll music. He thinks she’s the next great female rock singer.

 

Adam says Moriah, who do you pick as your coach. Moriah says she feels like she has to pick…Miley. Moriah says she completely had her because she was a child star and she felt more of a connection with that.

It’s time to meet our first artist of the night, Anthony Alexander from Fontana, Ca. His first gigs were bars and restaurants. His family is supportive of him and his brother shoots his videos and his sister helps promotes him. His father used to work on The Voice behind the scenes and he’s proud Anthony is doing this on his own. Anthony says all the time he’s spent on the set with his dad he never got to meet the coaches and now he gets that opportunity. He really hopes Adam will turn but he thinks any coach would be good.

 

Anthony is the first to hit the stage and he sings Redbone by Childish Gambino. Adam hits his button first. Jennifer follows along a minute later and then Miley also hits her button. Blake is listening and bobbing his head. Miley tells Jennifer he’s so good and Jennifer agrees he has a good voice. Miley tells Adam he’s so cool. Anthony is a 3-chair turn.

 

Adam wants to know why Blake didn’t press his button. Blake says he heard so many different influences in Anthony’s voice and he didn’t want to be humiliated on this one. Jennifer says he’s adorable. Jennifer says he had some range and heard some maybe Prince in there in his voice. Jennifer says she’s extremely passionate about his talent and she wants to help him get there. Miley says he came out and was so professional and she wants to learn from him and help him get better. She wants to win this season. Adam says the diversity of his voice is very special and he thinks he can almost quietly win the show. Adam says he can help him with his falsetto. Adam truly believes this is it and he’s so unbelievably passionate to have Anthony on his team.

 

Blake says Anthony, who do you pick as your coach? Anthony listens to the crowd and says he picks…he points around and says Adam.

 

We’re back with the coaches whistling the tune to The Andy Griffith Show. The next artist is Sophia Bollman from Norco, Ca. She’s going to sing a Kelly Clarkson song because she relates to it. Her mom is there and says all of her hard work brought her to this point. She was in a classic rock band and played for different artists and Carson shows her a video from Gene Simmons wishing her luck. She just graduated high school and now she wants to pursue music full time. She’s ready to show what she can do.  

 

Sophia heads to the stage and she sings Invincible by Kelly Clarkson. Blake looks deep in thought as he listens. Miley keeps looking back and forth between Adam and Jennifer. Sophia hits a big note and the crowd cheers. She hits another big note as she’s getting close to finishing her song. Blake hits towards the end and Miley follows at the last second. Sophia got a 2-chair turn.

 

Blake says she has an incredible pop soulful voice. He knows this isn’t his lane but he’s worked with artists like her and he thought she needed to be in the competition so he hit his button. Miley says she likes Sophia’s shoes. Miley thinks she has an amazing voice and she had moments that weren’t as strong. Miley says she has range and she thinks she could go far on the show and she’d like to be part of it. Jennifer says she does have a really big voice and asks who some of her favorite artists are and Sophia says Kelly Clarkson, Pink, and Miley. Sophia says Blake would be a cool dad and Blake says you’re probably my daughter.

 

Adam says Sophia! Who do you pick as your dad…coach? Sophia says well…she goes with Miley. Miley says she has an all-girl team so far but if the right dude came around, she’s really unbiased.   

 

Next to the stage is Jessica Rowboat from Queens, NY. She was born in India and moved to America when she was 8. Her family came her for better opportunities. She was going to apply for a job when she was 16 and she learned her family was undocumented and she felt fear and like she didn’t belong. She met her husband and through her marriage they were able to sponsor her parents and make their dreams come true.

 

Jessica sings Imagine by John Lennon while she plays the guitar. Miley says right away she has a cool voice. The coaches are all listening intently and Blake is bobbing his head. Miley says again that she sounds cool. Jessica is closing her song out and the judges all hesitate but no one turns. Miley says it was really pretty.

 

Jennifer says it was beautiful and she could feel her heart in it. Miley says it’s so hard not to turn around because of the message of the song but she didn’t get to hear enough of her voice. Blake says she’s doing what she was born to do and make those moments happen. Adam says she should come back and do a song that’s a little more energetic.

 

Adam has made a paper plane but it didn’t fly well. While Adam gets settled we’ll meet our next artist. Karli Webster is a music major from Santa Clarita, Ca. She likes hanging out around the music complex and listening to the music people create. She takes music courses as well as accounting so she gets the best of both worlds. She has won 8 state championships playing piano. Her mom raised her on all the 70s female song writers and has really influenced her path. She feels like this is her chance and where she’s supposed to be. She’d be honored to be on any of the coach’s teams.

 

Karli takes the stage and sings You’re So Vain by Carly Simon. Adam and Miley immediately hit their buttons and Miley says she loves her voice. Miley tells Adam she’s going to go hard and Adam says he wants her. Karli gets a 2-chair turn and Miley and Adam are both standing.

 

Miley and Adam argue over each standing up and they agree to sit at the same time. Adam says the spirit of Carly Simon was in her performance and she can go all the way. Miley asks why she picked that song and Karli says she was named after Carly Simon. Miley says the way she wants to revive 70s music and make it current is something she can help with and make a mark in HERstory. She would love to have Karli join her team because she is incredible. Adam says he has a lot of men on his team, but she has his favorite voice of anyone in the competition and losing the opportunity to work with her would be a huge loss for him.

 

Jennifer says who do you want as your coach? Karli says this is crazy and says she picks…Miley. Miley apologizes to Adam but she’s making herstory. Karli says she picked Miley because she seems to understand where she’s going.

 

Let’s see if Blake can get in the game with the next artist. We meet Stephan Marcellus from Englewood, NJ and he’s a soul artist. When he was in college he wanted to go into child therapy but he realized he wanted to impact people spiritually through music. He is really stepping out on faith and he’s determined to fly because this is what he wants to do.

 

Stephan heads to the stage and sings Take Me To Church by Hozier. His nerves get the best of him at the beginning and he looks shaken as he missed the first note. Carson looks concerns as does his family. Jennifer leans forward and hits her button as Stephan recovers. Adam and Miley look at each other. Jennifer is writing down some notes in her notebook. No other coaches turn and Stephan is a 1-chair turn.

 

Adam asks what his name and he asks what happened in the beginning and Stephan says he didn’t hear the right note. Adam says what’s crazy is something was going wrong and they all heard him find it and the next thing he knew Jennifer turned around. Jennifer says it was because she was in the same position before because she forgot the words to a song and just because of that doesn’t mean you can’t sing. Jennifer thinks with the right direction he can get there because he does have a great voice. Blake says Jennifer is your hero and she swooped down and saved you and welcome to The Voice.

 

Let’s meet 24-year old Emily Luther from Woonsocket, RI. She’s the first musician in her family and she loves music and practicing. She fell in love with musical theater when she was 8 or 9. Her mom say Emily always liked being on stage, but she’s always been accident prone. After high school, she got accepted to Berkley College of Music and she made the decision to move out to Los Angeles. She has sung back-up for Dionne Warwick and she eventually signed a record deal but there was a negative side to it. They wanted her to change her hair and said her skin wasn’t perfect and her teeth weren’t perfect and she couldn’t get through so she moved back to Rhode Island. She’s been through the highs and lows and now she feels she’s ready for it.

 

Emily is ready to perform on stage and she sings Summertime by Ella Fitzgerald. Blake says that’s good. The crowd seems to enjoy her and cheers and the judges are listening. Jennifer is bobbing back and forth in her seat. Blake raises his hand and brings it down on his button. Emily is coming to the end of the song and Jennifer says she’s going in and Adam hits his button. Jennifer then hits her button. Emily is a 3-chair turn.

 

Adam says he was so mesmerized by what Emily was doing he almost forgot to hit his button. She has such a 60s, syrupy, jazzy tone and it’s such a cool approach to the show. Jennifer says she has a great balance of everything and it was very smooth. She heard some Barbara Streisand and she’d love that on her team because her voice is flexible. Blake says he really got into that performance and when she started singing he wanted a martini, and he doesn’t even drink martinis. He says no one has anyone like her on their team because she’s so unique. Adam says as far as he was concerned the room was filled with smoke and there were jazz guys behind her. He was visualizing it and working with her would be an amazing, unique opportunity and he needs her on his team. Blake says she’s badly need on HIS team.

 

Miley says she has no idea where she’s going to go but it’s time for her to pick a coach. Emily hesitates and thinks and says…Team Adam. Adam says he finally prevailed and got some girl power and she is a whole different chapter of his team. Blake says today he got nobody on his team, but this is his 13th season and he can’t wait to see what happens.

Tonight, the final week of blind auditions begins. Jennifer begins the night with 9 artists, Miley has 8, while Adam and Blake each have 7. For the artist’s this is the chance of a lifetime. To fill their teams with the best voices in America, our coaches pull out all the stops. And one coach has a unique vision for her team. The final week of blind auditions starts right now!

 

Let’s meet the first artist of the night, Chloe Kohanski from Juliet, Tn. She tells us her genre is psyche rock, like a 70s kind of vibe and she’s a huge Miley fan. No one in her immediate or extended family sings or is musical in any way. She has been working in a coffee shop and that’s how she makes ends meet. She’s excited for this opportunity and she really wants to make her parents proud.

 

Chloe takes the stage and sings The Chain by Fleetwood Mac. The judges are bobbing their heads and Blake is singing along. Miley and Blake both hit their buttons as Chloe finishes the first chorus and Jennifer follows a moment later. Chloe is a 3-chair turn.

 

Blake says that’s a Fleetwood Mac song and is she set on going down the rock path and Chloe says yes. Blake says he loved the lower register she has and his favorite was when her voice started to open that made her sound so unique. He’d love to have her on his team. Jennifer says her vibe was so cool and she seen a superstar and sass. Blake says Jennifer and Chloe would be too much sassiness. Miley says her dad had her riding around listening to Stevie and she aspired to be like Stevie and she can tell Chloe knows who she is and that’s what Miley specializes in. Blake says he thinks she can be in the finale and Jennifer says I think that too.

 

Adam says Chloe it’s time to make your choice. Chloe thanks them and says they all don’t know how much what they said means to her but…she’s obsessed with Miley so she’s going to go with Miley.

 

The next artist is tiny, she’s 4’11 and her name is Olivia Kay and she’s from Edmond, OK. She’s 13-years old and she just graduated eighth grade. She has a twin brother, Owen and he says Olivia is 60 second more mature than she is. She always leans more toward soulful songs and she’s been singing since she was 7. She sang the National Anthem the year Blake was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and she has a picture with him.

 

Olivia heads up to the stage and she sings Ghost by Ella Henderson. She seems a little flat at the beginning and the judges are listening carefully. The judges all look at each other and no one turns. Miley gets up and gives her the biggest high five. Adam says this is a crazy time in her life to be doing this and he’s telling her not to stop doing this. Jennifer says she has a mature voice and once she figures out how to use it, no one will be able to touch her. Blake tells her she just needs to be able to control it and he tells her in another year she’ll be so much better. Olivia asks Blake to sign her picture.

 

The next artist is very tall, he’s 6’8 and his name is Dennis Drummond from Nashville, TN. He says ceiling fans are an enemy, he doesn’t play basketball, and the weather up there is fine. He is originally from Ohio and his dad was a steel worker. He got his first guitar when he was 7 and he was in a blues band when he was 15. He’s been playing back-up for Adam Wakefield, who was the runner-up on season 10 and was on Team Blake. He’s ready to take this experience and grow from it. He says having Adam as a coach would be great because he loves his range.

 

Dennis is on stage and sings She Talks to Angels by The Black Crowes. Adam hits his button very quickly. Jennifer is listening very closely. Blake looks deep in thought and he eventually hits his button. Dennis got a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam asks Blake if he knows what band that song was by and he responds correctly. Jennifer likes his speaking voice and she would have loved to hear some of those textures in the song. Adam says he sang this song his way and he was excited until that nitwit turned around. Dennis tells them he plays for Adam Wakefield. Blake says he knows he’s a Nashville guy and it’s an interesting town because there are all kinds of genres there. He says let’s find the right songs and win this thing. Adam says he’s a guitar player and he shouldn’t forget that when he makes his choice.

 

Miley says he looks undecided and Dennis says his mom is a Blake Shelton fan but he’s a huge Maroon 5 fan. Miley says Blake you might be toast. Dennis thanks them for the kind words they said but he has to go with his gut and he picks…Blake.

 

The next artist is Ignatious Carmouche from Opelousas, LA. He is The Voice season 12 winner. Because he won the competition he got to fly out to LA and meet Adam Levine and he was invited to the blind auditions. He grew up in the church and was shy and would sing with his back to the congregation. He loves all kinds of music and he believes The Voice can be a stepping stone to where he wants to be as an artist.

 

Ignatious takes the stage and sings Latch by Disclosure. The coaches are all listening intently and the crowd seems to enjoy it. Ignatious has gotten Jennifer’s attention and she starts to hit her button but stops. Miley says that’s beautiful. Jennifer final hits her button. Blake hits a minute later. Ignatious is a 2-chair turn.

 

Adam recognizes him and says he can’t believe that’s Ignatious. He goes up to hug him and explains to the coaches who he is. Jennifer says he almost sounds like a saxophone with words and she is speechless. Blake says when he’s singing full voice, it’s incredible. But when he switches into that clear falsetto it’s effortless. He says what an incredible journey it would be for Ignatious to win the snapchat contest, to getting a chair to turn on the blind auditions, to being on the finale and winning. Adam is backing Jennifer. Jennifer says her whole career has been driven by passion and she’s passionate about him.

 

Adam says Ignatious, who do you pick as your coach. He says this is a hard decision, he’s definitely a fan of all of them, but…he picks Jennifer.

 

Let’s see if our next artist, Rebecca Brunner from Mason, MI. can make her music dreams a reality. She’s been singing since she was 5 and she knew as soon as she graduated high school she wanted to pursue music. She lives in Chicago, IL and she’s a nanny because music doesn’t pay the bills. She works on her music at night and does anything she can to pursue her dream. She’s going to pour her heart on the stage.

 

Rebecca steps up and sings Believer by Imagine Dragons. The judges are listening. They coaches all look at each other. Blake looks like he wants to his button and hits it at the very last second. Rebecca is a 1-chair turn. Blake says what Rebecca just did was hard. He says the timing of her voice, the pitch, the power, he just wanted to wait and see what the others were going to do because he didn’t want to get screwed on this one. Blake says Rebecca you’re stuck with me and says she loves country and she’s excited to be on his team.

 

Brandon Brown is the next artist and he is from Bronx, NY and he’s a violin teacher. He says he struggled in school and never felt like he fit in until he picked up the violin. His mom says he would try to find complicated pieces to play. He says The Voice is the only show that gives him the chance to work with four superstars and he’d like to work with Jennifer.

 

Brandon hits the stage and sings Georgia On My Mind by Ray Charles. Adam hits his button very quickly. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake finally hits his button and turns and Jennifer turns a moment later. Brandon is a 3-chair turn.

 

Adam says it’s a lost art to sing a song like that with subtlety and nuance and soul. He says there is something old school to sing that way and it’s tough to sing that song because they think of Ray Charles. Blake says he hears a little Willie Nelson and Adam says he’s lost his mind. Jennifer says she heard Donny Hathaway and Brandon says he loves Donny. Jennifer says Adam and Blake do the same thing every year and we see pictures of Adam laying across and begging and Blake pointing at himself. Jennifer says that style of music doesn’t really have a platform today. Jennifer says that sound is special. Adam says he’s really passionate, doesn’t he want leadership because he was the first to turn around. Blake wants to say one thing and he starts to point to himself.

 

Miley says ok, Brandon, who do you pick as your coach. Brandon looks to his family and he says he…picks…Adam. Jennifer is shocked. Adam says Brandon is a timeless singer.

 

Let’s meet the next artist. Nathan Graham is the next artist from Chicago, IL. Every time he’s out people think he’s James Harden and he gets stopped and asked for pictures. He’s a wine taster at a restaurant. He’s played guitar for 14 years and he’s playing in a blues rock band and teaching at the School of Rock. He likes The Voice because it’s not about how you look.

 

Nathan is ready to perform and he sings Nobody to Blame by Chris Stapleton. The judges are bob their heads and listen and they all look at each other. Nathan does not get a chair to turn. Blake says this sucks. He appreciated the gravelly sound of his voice but it overtook some of the vocals. Miley says he has a modern, Bohemian take on country music. Adam tells him to keep at it.

 

Our next performer is Whitney Fenimore from Tulsa, OK. She grew up singing in the church and she played in different Christian music bands, but she decided she wanted to reach more than just that group of people. She moved out to LA and she’s played a lot of shows and you don’t know if you’re going anywhere. She started to be overwhelmed and she had panic attacks and her dad came to take her back home. She’s so thankful for her family and friends and she started singing at a coffee shop. The Voice is the first big thing she’s done since she’s gotten better.

 

Whitney is going to sing Hold On, We’re Going Home by Drake featuring Majid Jordan. Jennifer is bobbing a little in her chair and singing along. Adam is looking at Miley and then reaches for his button with Miley right behind. Whitney is a 2-chair turn.

 

Miley says her best friend is from Oklahoma and Adam says mine too. Miley says she’s the first one in Voice history to have an all-female team and she wants to keep that going. She thinks females sometimes get lost and are told they have to change themselves for the market. Adam talks about Christina Grimmie being the first to do that song and he says Whitney’s a great singer. Adam thinks there are some things she needs to work on, but they are minor.

 

Miley says it’s that magic time and Adam says who do you pick as your coach. Whitney says it’s so hard because she respects both of their careers so much, but Adam, Songs about Jane, she picks Adam!

 

Our next artist is Ilianna Viramontes from Brentwood, CA. Her dad was an FBI agent and that was hard, especially when she tried to date boys. Her family moved around a lot and it would be hard because just as she got comfortable, they moved again. Her only passion growing up was gymnastics. She started singing in her school choir her junior year and she got to perform at Carnegie Hall, but she’s never performed solo. As an artist, she sees herself as pop and she hopes the coaches hear the uniqueness in her voice. She missed graduation to be there.

 

Ilianna takes the stage and sings New Soul by Yael Naim. The coaches are all dancing in their chairs. Miley is watching Jennifer and Blake. Miley reaches forward and hits her button and Blake hits his at virtually the same time. Ilianna is a 2-chair turn.

 

Blake says he loved her voice and he’s not blind he could see how excited she was when Miley turned her chair. Blake thinks the way she was able to navigate that melody with perfect pitch was great and he could tell she was smiling. Miley says when Ilianna was singing she could hear some Patsy Cline or Tammy Wynette and they can try some different things. She would love to work with her.

 

Adam says Ilianna, who do you pick as your coach? Blake says don’t fall for that crap! Ilianna says I pick…I pick Miley.

 

Next we see a quick clip from Katrina Rose who sang Kozmic Blues by Janis Joplin who was picked up by Miley. The next artist is Natalie Stovall who sang If It Hadn’t Been For Love by Adele and was picked up by Blake. Finally, we had Ryan Scripps who sang Body Like a Back Road by Sam Hunt who was also picked up by Blake.

 

The next artist is Meagan McNeal from Chicago, IL. She has a son named Maddox and he is the reason she never settles. She is pursuing her dream so she can show her son it’s never too late. This is the biggest opportunity she’s ever had and she’s going to give it everything she has.

 

Meagan takes the stage and sings Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd. The coaches are all listening and Jennifer finally decides to hit her button. Meagan is a 1-chair turn. Miley says her voice was amazing. Adam says he loves her too. Blake loves the fact she took that song and changed it up and she needed to be on JHud’s team. Jennifer says she’s a firm believer in people being themselves. Jennifer says that shows how great of singer she is based on how she took that song and did that with it.

 

Let’s meet the final artist of the night, Jon Mero from Atlanta, GA. He was a musical person growing up and when he was 14 he seen Whitney Houston in The Preacher’s Wife and it inspired him to want to sing. He was originally from Iowa and he moved to Atlanta about 6 years ago because it’s the Hollywood of the south. He’s in a band and they play a lot of weddings or parties. He’s a performer, but for The Voice he’s going to focus on singing.

 

Jon is ready to perform and he sings Versace on the Floor by Bruno Mars. Blake is the first to hit with Jennifer and Adam immediately behind. Miley is listening and looking at Adam. Miley uses her shoe to hit her button. Jon is a 4-chair turn.

 

All four coaches are on their feet. Jennifer says Jon wasn’t coming to The Voice today, he was coming to his show. Adam says he has a tremendous voice and he thinks about Prince. He says it would be an honor to work with him because he could see this as a step on the never ending staircase of his career. Jennifer says we could tell you believed everything you sang and you are a star. She loves to see when people own their moment and she hopes they can make many more moments together.

 

Blake says if he had done some of the moves Jon did he’d have hyperextended his knee. Blake says he wanted to hit his button for him because he is incredible. Miley says she doesn’t like to give up and she is a super dedicated coach. She was last to hit her button because she wanted to listen and she was inspired. Adam says he needs passion and fire. Adam thinks he’s the best coach. Miley says he can bring mom out.

 

Adam says it’s time for Jon to pick his coach. The crowd is yelling and the coaches are saying come on. Jon picks…Adam Levine.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
