The Homan Family from Alabaster, AL introduces Todd because he is their favorite because he can sing and has an infectious personality. Todd is performing from Meridian, MS.

Zan Fiskum from Team John is up next. Zan is going to perform Never Be the Same by Camila Cabello. John gives some advice on singing one section in her fuller voice.

Anna Katherine from Renton, WA is introducing Zan and she is her best friend and a true inspiration in music and life. Zan is performing from Maple Valley, WA. Nick says that is not an easy song to sing and he loved her arrangement. She has a unique ability to make every song her song. Great job. John says Zan is so involved in how these songs are arranged. She’s at home crafting the song to make her own and she gives a master class in how to jump between chest voice and head voice. That was incredible and Kelly says yes it was!


Next up is Thunderstorm Artis from Team Nick and he’s going to dedicate his performance to his wife Faith Artis. Thunderstorm is going to perform Home by Michael Buble. Nick says maybe he should change up the ending. He says his purity is something that pulls people in. He gives some staging techniques for Thunderstorm to use when he records his song.


Kate from New York City introduces Thunderstorm because he’s her favorite artist and he has amazing vocals and a pretty cool name. Thunderstorm is performing from Portland, OR. Blake says he was so zoned in on what Thunderstorm was doing because what he was doing on the guitar was cool and inventive. Great job. He really enjoyed that. Nick says from day one, he has done exactly what Blake said and made a clear path for himself and he hopes America gets behind him as well.


Megan Danielle from Team Kelly is up next and she is going to perform What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts and she’s dedicating this song to her siblings.

Naveen from Austin, TX is introducing Megan. She loves the way Megan makes you feel her emotions when she performs. Megan is performing from Winston, GA.

Team Nick’s Allegra Miles is up next and she’s going to perform Overjoyed by Stevie Wonder. She’s dedicating this performance to her grandmother.

James Taylor is here to perform and he sings Moon River.


Toneisha Harris from Team Blake is up next and she is singing Because You Love Me by Celine Dion and she is dedicating her performance to her husband.

She wants people to hear how big that song was and she is an incredibly gifted vocalist. Blake says that was awesome for Kelly to offer and she’s welcome to come sing with him too. She is literally so special and she deserves to be in the finale.


We’re wrapping things up with Cammwess from Team John and he is going to perform Rainbow by Kacey Musgraves and he’s dedicating this song to his little cousin who has some medical issues. John says his tone is honey butter, but he thinks the song should be in a different key to push himself vocally. John says he hasn’t had an artist he has had so much musical kinship with on the history of his time on the show.


Brian from York, PA is introducing Cammwess and he says he has a smooth voice. Cammwess is performing from Blythewood, SC. Kelly is crying as Cammwess finishes. John says that was emotional and he took them on a journey. It was powerful, emotional, and America needs to vote for him.
