And it continues! Only 11 artists remain on Season 10 of ‘The Voice,’ and the stakes are higher than ever as another week of live performances is upon us. Catch up on the April 25 episode by reading our full recap here!
America is totally in control now that Season 10 of The Voice is underway, and the Top 11 remaining artists are all performing to keep their spot on the show in the April 25 episode. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton all have three contestants left, while Pharrell has two, and with SO much talent in one room…the performances continue to be unforgettable. Read our recap to find out everything that went down!
The night kicks off on the somber side, with all four coaches taking a moment to talk about how the late Prince has inspired them in their careers. So touching.
But it’s quickly time to get into the competition, with Adam’s artist, Shalyah Fearing, getting things going. She chooses a song, “The Climb,” by this season’s key adviser, Miley Cyrus, and as Adam points out, it’s not what we’d expect from her. However, it’s the perfect song choice reflecting the struggle Shalyah’s gone through, and she not only sounds incredible, but connects to the song on a personal level, too.
Next up, Daniel Passino, Pharrell’s comeback artist, prepares to show a more vulnerable side on the show with a rendition of “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper. After losing Emily Keener last week, Pharrell is not looking to have another artist voted off, and he works hard with Daniel to perfect the performance — and it totally pays off. So incredible.
Paxton Ingram from Blake’s team is next to perform, and he’s taking Pharrell’s advice to sing something inspirational by picking “Break Every Chain” as his song for this week. Since he’s used to singing in his church, this is right up his alley, and as Blake predicts, it’s quite a breakout moment for him!
Adam’s artist, Owen Danoff, who found himself singing for the Instant Save in the Bottom 2 last week, is next to take the stage. He obviously needs to make an impression with this one, and chooses “Fire And Rain” by James Taylor to do it. He relates to the song about losing a childhood friend because it’s something he went through himself, and that emotional connection really helps take his performance to the next level. SO good, I literally have chills!
Next, Blake’s country cutie, Mary Sarah, sings a rendition of “Johnny & June,” a song chosen by her coach. The song gives Mary an opportunity to show off her old-school country soul with a contemporary twist, and she pulls it off absolutely perfectly.
Season 10’s front runner, Alisan Porter, from Christina’s team, is next to perform, and with consistently amazing performances every single time she’s on that stage she obviously has a lot to live up to. Things are no different this week, though, and she totally slays her rendition of “Stay With Me Baby.” I mean….come ON!
Alisan is obviously a tough act to follow, but fellow Team Christina artist, Bryan Bautista, is the one to do it. He’s singing Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are,” and dedicates it to his little sister, who’s sitting in the audience. Bryan gives the song an old-school, jazzy feel, and he sounds amazing while doing it.
Adam Wakefield from Blake’s team is up next, singing “Lights” by Journey for his Top 11 performance. Since his mom is in town from Scotland this week, it’s a huge moment for Adam, and her presence clearly has a positive affect as he perfectly belts out the vocally-challenging hit. It’s outside Adam’s comfort zone, but he totally makes it his own in the best way possible.
Christina’s contestant Nick Hagelin is up next, and in case you forgot, he’s the guy she brought back in the Live Playoffs, so since he was eliminated earlier in the show, it’s super important for him to really prove himself each week. This time, he’s singing John Mayer’s “Your Body Is A Wonderland,” and he’s bringing back his guitar for first time in a few weeks for the performance. As usual, he makes all the girls swoon and sounds great, too.
Hannah Huston from Team Pharrell is up next, and after giving an upbeat, energetic performance last week, she’s ready to strip things down to show her versatility with a Bonnie Raitt classic this time around. It’s the right move, too, as the crowd goes wild for her smooth performance — she totally can do it all!
Closing out the night is Adam’s final artist, Laith Al-Saadi, who sings Ed Sheeran’s “Make It Rain” as a way to show he can do contemporary songs, rather than just his usual, bluesy, old-school stuff. He puts a great spin on the well-known track, and it’s pretty incredible. What a way to end the night!
After America’s votes, one artist will be sent home in tomorrow night’s elimination. Who will make the Top 10?!
