Knockout Rounds are here, which means the stakes are high considering Live Shows are coming up next! Find out which singers secured their coveted spots in our full episode recap.
For the first time ever, Pharrell Williams put 3 amazing artists together in a 3-way knockout round! Mia Z, Paul Pfau, and Saywer Fredericks went head to head but only two singers made it to the live shows — find out who got sent home in the most craziest knockout round ever!
‘The Voice:’ Knockout Rounds Begin
Ashley Morgan sang “Heart Breaker,” and her powerful voice totally rocked the house. Sonic took it down a few notches by singing “A Woman’s Worth,” — it was just beautiful. Christina had to pick only one singer to save and her heart wanted Sonic!
Team Blake’s Brain Johnson and Sarah Potenza were very intimidated when they found out they would be going head to head. Brain sang “Nothing Ever Hurt Like You,” and Sarah picked “Wasted Love,” by The Voice alumni Matt McAndrew!
“Matt, what do you think?” Blake asked when Sarah was rehearsing — and there he was! Matt came out and surprised Sarah!
Both singers took the stage to sing the songs they chose. Blake decided to keep Sarah on his team but Adam immediately hit his steal button for Brian!
Clinton Washington and Nathan Hermioa on Team Adam took the stage next. Clinton took on Hunter Hayes‘ “Wanted” and Nathan tackled the Sam Smith‘s hit “Leave Your Lover.”
Although Clinton’s performance was impressive, Adam’s “soul” urged him to pick Clinton.
Pharrell Creates First Ever 3-Way Knockout Round
In the first ever 3-way Knockout round, Team Pharrell’s Mia Z, Paul Pfau, and Saywer Fredericks all took the stage and only two could continue in the competition.
Mia sang Sam and Dave’s “Hold On I’m Comin’,” and her perfect pitch wowed the audience and the judges — that girl can sure sing!
Next up, Paul sang “I Don’t Need Doctor,” and we felt like we were at a John Mayer concert, like in a good way! Saywer then sang “Collide,” and our hearts melted. He is SO talented — mind blowingly talented!
Poor Pharrell had to choose only one of from the talented bunch to send home and he decided to say bye to Paul — so sad!
Blake paired Meghan Linsey and Travis Ewing together because they were both his steals from Battle Rounds.
Meghan took on the powerful tune Aretha Franklin song, “Natural Woman,” and really nailed it! Then, Travis took us back to the One Tree Hill days with the Gavin DeGraw hit, “I Don’t Want To Be.”
Blake thought Megan deserved to move on to the Live Show’s and while she was great, we were sad to see hottie Travis go.
Kimberly Nichole and Koryn Hawthorne from Team Christina took the stage next. Koryn sang Pink‘s “Try” and Kimberly picked “If You Love Somebody, Set The Free.” Both powerhouses blew the roof off with their amazing vocals.
Christina chose Kimberly but no worries, Pharrell swept Koryn right up on to his team!
