The playoffs are heating up, y'all!
Now that the pesky presidential election is out of the way, it's time to fully focus the voting portion of our brains on "The Voice." Tonight, it was Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green's contestants turns to sing for America's vote and a spot in the Top 12. (To see how Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's teams did, check out our recap!)
So how did everyone do? Who put their own spin on a One Direction hit and which contestant made Adam want to have a baby?!
U.S. & World
News from around the country and around the globe
Adrianna Louise sings Katy Perry's "Firework" and impresses all the coaches. Cee Lo calls her a "beautiful person" with a "beautiful voice." After telling Cee Lo that he loves him, Adam also praises Adrianna. "I've never had a waitress like you," Blake tells the former server.
Former church singer De'Borah performs Pink's "Who Knew," which Cee Lo finds "compelling." Adam showers praise on the singer, saying, "There is only one De'Borah." Blake compliments her overall performance, the way De'Borah is able to move and sing. Her coach Christina says she "commands the stage" in a way that no one else on the show can.
Devyn DeLoera takes on Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" as Christina wants to show off a softer side to the diva. Cee Lo admits it wasn't her best performance, but still thinks she can continue to grow. Blake wanted to see a softer performance, while Christina thinks Devyn did an amazing job, saying, "Hat's off to you!"
Pop singer Sylvia Yacoub takes the stage (and piano!) with a haunting version of Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away." Cee Lo calls her performance "wonderful" and says it was his favorite of the night, while Adam says Sylvia "definitely deserves" to move forward. Coach Christina gushes over her contestant's performance, saying the two "connect on an emotional and vocal level," which causes Sylvia to cry.
Former college football player Dez Duron is the final member of Team Christina to perform and takes on Hunter Hayes' country hit "Wanted" because she wanted to see him step outside of his comfort zone. "I'm gonna give it the Dez twist," Dez says. "Good news is girls really love you," Adam says, adding that Dez has a "great voice." Blake jokes that he's mad that Dez sang a country song after choosing Christina over him as his coach. Christina gives Dez a personal standing ovation and gushes, "You nailed it!"
Team Cee Lo
Country boy who thinks he was "an elderly black lady" in a previous life, Cody Belew, takes on George Michael's "One More Try." Adam calls it a "genius" song choice and Blake says Cee Lo's team "is full of threats" and reveals that Cody is one of his wife Miranda Lambert's favorite contestants! Cee Lo gushes over his contestant's performance, saying, "I'm just like, 'Wow!'"
"Peruvian Magic Mike" Diego Val takes on Enrique Iglesias' "Bailamos" and Adam notes that he didn't seem "that uncomfortable" as he's a rock singer and the tune was more of a Latin love song; Christina agrees with Adam. Blake jokes that he didn't know what he was saying and praises Diego's "cool factor." (He wasn't even annoyed that Diego wasn't wearing socks!) Cee Lo kind of apologizes for the song choice
Mackenzie Bourg, who struggled with congestive heart failure before the show, is now "a current event," aka he got mobbed by girls when he went to a football game at his old high school. Of course, Cee Lo decides to have Mackenzie cover One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." (Smart, smart move!) Adam says he felt like he was in the '50s and says Mackenzie is "an idol." Blake admits the young singer snuck up on him, while Christina calls him "a charmer," but wants to see him switch things up. Cee Lo agrees with Christina, adding he wants to see more energy from Mackenzie.
Spiritual family man Nicholas David is the next to take the stage and performs "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" by Barry White as Cee Lo says Nicholas has "soul." When Cee Lo tells Nicholas he needs swagger, the singer hilariously admits, "I don't understand the whole swagger thing," comparing himself to an out-of-the-loop grandparent. Adam says he's "a huge fan" and jokes that "he wants to make a baby now." Blake calls Nicholas "my favorite singer" on Team Cee Lo. His coach says Nicholas made him proud, adding that he deserves to go all of the way. Awww!
Queens native Trevyn Hunte is the final performer of the night and sings a stripped down version of Michael Bolton's "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You." Blake gushes, "You move me. Every time you get on the stage you move me," adding Trevyn could win the whole thing. Christina seconds Blake's sentiments, calling the teenager "truly special." Coach Cee Lo says, "I'm speechless, you did such a wonderful job."
