Live playoffs are here on The Voice, and the Top 20 are now singing for America’s votes. On Monday, Team Adam and Team Gwen kicked off the Top 20 round with their performances – and two eliminated artists being invited back into the competition. If you missed any of the evening’s covers or the big reveal, keep reading to find links of every performance.
The two “Coach Comeback Artists” were Chance Pena for Team Adam and Ellie Lawrence for Team Gwen. After Gwen Stefani opened the show with her newest single “Used To Love You,” Chance and Ellie rejoined their teammates to sing for a spot in next week’s Top 12. Below you can click to watch every artist performance from Monday night:
1. Blaine Mitchell, “Never Tear Us Apart”
2. Keith Semple, “To Be With You”
3. Shelby Brown, “You’re No Good”
4. Amy Vachal, “The Way You Look Tonight”
5. Jordan Smith, “Halo”
6. Chance Pena, “Barton Hollow”
1. Regina Love, “Hello”
2. Korin Bukowski, “Adia”
3. Ellie Lawrence, “Ex’s & Oh’s”
4. Jeffery Austin, “Say You Love Me”
5. Braiden Sunshine, “Everything I Own”
6. Viktor Kiraly, “All Around The World”
By The Numbers:
Season 9 represents the first season coaches have been able to bring back eliminated artists in the Top 20 round. In Season 7, the show allowed viewers to bring back an eliminated artist into the finals via Twitter, and in Season 2, the coaches were made to eliminate one of their artists in an “instant elimination.” Neither concept lasted more than one season.
If you didn’t already notice, both of Team Gwen’s stolen artists come from Team Adam (Regina Love and Viktor Kiraly).
With Jordan Smith’s rendition of Beyonce’s “Halo,” the majority of his songs have been pop tracks by female artists. They include his blind audition (Sia’s “Chandelier”) and his knockout (Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain”). The exception was his battle round against Regina Love, where the two performed Sam Smith’s “Like I Can.”
“Halo” also means the show has had two consecutive weeks with a Beyonce cover, as last week in the final knockouts Team Pharrell’s Riley Biederer sung “XO.”
Voting for Team Adam and Team Gwen is open from now through noon ET on Tuesday, Nov. 10. Fans can vote by downloading their favorite songs on iTunes, via Facebook, or phone. For full voting information, visit the website.
The Voice continues Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
