Last night on The Voice, it was the second part of the knockout rounds. Who went home and who moved on?
Devyn is paired against Laura. Christina says she paired these two together because they are passionate artists with big voices. Devyn selected “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Laura selected “I Need to Know” by Marc Anthony. Both gave dynamic performances and it was a tough decision. Devyn wins the Knockout round!
Next from team Christina: Adriana vs Celica.
Christina paired them together because they’re both “powerful pop singers.” Adriana picked “Already Gone” by Kelly Clarkson. Celica chose “Never Say Never” by Justin Bieber. Adriana knocked her high note out of the park. Christina looked proud as she cheered. Celica gave a good performance but it seemed anticlimactic. Adriana wins the Knockout round!
Alessandra vs Dez. Alessandra decided to sing “Take a Bow” by Rihanna.
Dez picked “Stuck on You” Lionel Richie. Both gave strong performances and it was hard to tell a definite winner. Dez wins the Knockout round!
Chevonne vs De’borah. Chevonne ended up being stolen by Christina in the previous round. She’s singing “Dancing With Myself.” De’borah chose the song “You Found Me” by The Fray. Chevonne gave a very energetic performance but seemed to miss notes here and there. De’borah’s performance was solid and she hit awesome notes. De’borah wins the Knockout round!
Aquile vs Sylvia. Aquile picked “Grenade” by Bruno Mars. Sylvia picked “Fighter” by Christina herself. Aquile gave a solid performance.
Sylvia sang her butt off. There were some pitchy moments but she hit some great notes. Sylvia wins the Knockout round!
Next up, we’re on to Blake. He must also cut his team in half.
Liz vs Gracia. Gracia chose “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith.
Blake was worried Gracia wasn’t staying true to herself and her country roots. Liz picked “Gunpowder and Lead” by Miranda Lambert. Gracia’s performance was pitchy in parts. Liz’s performance was powerful and seemed to get more of a reaction out of the judges. Liz wins the Knockout round!
Rudy vs Terry. Blake paired them together because they’re both rock artists. Rudy chose the song “Forever” by Chris Brown—a seemingly odd choice. Terry chose “Maybe I’m Amazed.” Rudy impressed the judges with his interpretation of Chris Brown’s song, however Terry rocked the stage and won the judges over. Terry wins the Knockout round!
Collin vs Michaela. Collin chose the song “Breakeven.” Michaela chose “Love is a Battlefield.” Collin’s performance was good but seemed very average. Michaela’s performance impressed the judges more. Michaela wins the Knockout round!
Julio vs Marissaann. Julio selected “Somebody to Love.” Marisaann picked “Lady Marmalade.” Julio’s performance was nice but didn’t have any special moments. Marissaann had fun during her performance and she mastered the difficult song. I was very surprised by who Blake chose and almost disappointed. Julio wins the Knockout round!
Cassadee vs Suzanna. Cassadee chose “Payphone” by Maroon 5. She decided to take some risks on the song that Maroon 5 didn’t. Suzanna chose “Could You Be Loved” by Bob Marley. The judges found Suzanna’s song choice to be too laid-back and not competitive enough. Cassadee wins the Knockout round!
