Tanner Linford, 17 — Auditioned in a past season but didn’t make it. This time, he sang “When You Say Nothing At All.” It seemed as if no judges were going to turn around again, but Blake hit his button at the very last second! “You are meant to be on team Blake,” the country star judge told Tanner!
Roem Baur, 37 — Pursued opera in college. He sang “Pretty Woman” and unfortunately, the judges were not impressed. Maybe next time, Roem!

Gwen turned her chair in the last second! The judges battled it out and Chris ended up choosing Adam! Blake said he was happy for Adam, “Any time he can get one and it can build his ego back up, I am happy to see him feeling good about himself.”
Craig Boyd — Wants to be able to take care of his son by being a successful musician. “The Whiskey Ain’t Working” was the song he decided to sing for the judges.

Amanda Peers, 29 — Sang “Put The Gun Down.” Gwen turned around right away! No other judges turned around, and therefore, Amanda joined team Gwen! “You had really good stage presence, the whole package,” Gwen told her.
