(Original song) Team Alicia: Britton Buchanan — The North Carolina folk rocker’s first performance was his own original song titled, “Where you come from”. He wrote the song while in the midst of chemistry and band class. It’s about never losing yourself or where you come from as life goes on.

(Duet) Team Alicia: Britton Buchanan — The coach and artist duo performed an acoustic version of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”. They tag-teamed instruments, with Alicia on the piano and Birron on the guitar.
(Original song) Team Blake: Kyla Jade — The soul singer performed “The Last Tear”, a song that Blake said may be her best yet. Kyla said that although this song has a different sound, it still has her same feel. She said this song is a “perfect match for what she’s been learning about herself” on The Voice. She’s been wanting to show how she feels through her own lyrics for the entirety of the show, and now it’s her chance.
(Duet) Team Blake: Spensha Baker — This was a special one for the artist/coach duo. They performed “Tell Me About It” by Tanya Tucker. It’s been Spensha’s dream to sing that exact song with Blake in the finale.

(Cover) Team Alicia: Britton Buchanan — He chose to perform “Good Love” by Young Rascals, a song Alicia said just proves he can take any world and make it his own. But, can he live up to the challenge? Well, if the crowd’s incontrollable screaming determined Britton’s future, then his chances are looking pretty good!
(Original Song) Team Blake: Spensha Baker — She debuted her original new song, “Old Soul”. She said this song is a “good blend” of her sound. As for the meaning of “Old Soul”? — “We all want a mature love, one that lasts,” Spensha explained.
