HollywoodLife.com has an EXCLUSIVE, never-before-seen clip from this week’s ‘Voice’ rehearsals — WATCH!

First up is rehearsals is fan favorite Christina Grimmie, who looks a little nervous as she takes the stage in front of James and her coach, Adam. “Don’t sweat it, Grimmie,” Adam says encouragingly. “This is the workshop here.” “There are no mistakes,” James chimes in.
Shakira’s artist Kristen Merlin also seems full of nervous energy as she hits the stage and says, “Let’s just do it, let’s dive in.” Shakira laughs and tells her she’s funny but Kristen says she’s just “overtired.” The pressure is really on, but Kristen seems ready to rise to the occasion. She even tells Shakira that she’s going to “sleep, eat and dream about this song.”
Meanwhile, Usher is so impressed with his contestant Josh Kaufman that he begs to hear his performance again — just for “selfish” reasons! Now that’s definitely a good sign!
Blake announces Audra McLaughlin‘s grand entrance by proclaiming, “She’s back, bi**h!” He then jokes that she’s going to “screw it up real bad,” which in hindsight is a little sad because Audra was voted off the show on May 6. Although, she definitely didn’t screw up — her performance was amazing!
This week’s cuts leave Christina Grimmie, Josh Kaufman, Kat Perkins, Kristen Merlin and Jake Worthington in the final five. We can’t wait to see who will come in first place!
