Sing it, top six!
Tonight on The Voice, the final six contestants sang their hearts out in hopes of making it to next week's semi-finals of season five.
Adam Levine is leading the coach's count with three contestants still left in the game, followed closely by Christina Aguilera with two artists, and then Blake Shelton with just one singing hopeful. (And just in case you missed it: CeeLo Green was booted out of the competition last week when his final mentee, Caroline Pennell, was voted out of the top eight. Sorry, bro.)
Each of the remaining six contestants were tasked with not one, but two songs, so this week audiences at home were gifted with 12 amazing renditions of some of the best songs that have ever graced The Voice's stage. We picked each performer's best routine and are ready to catch you up on everything you may have missed….
Cole Vosbury (Team Blake) "A Better Man"
Cole kicked off the night singing a fun-loving version of Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl," however his second performance definitely surpassed the first. Singing James Morrison's "A Better Man," Cole dedicated the song to his first love and he showcased the raspy vocals that would melt any girl's heart.
Tessanne Chin (Team Adam) "Unconditionally"
In her first performance of the night, Tessanne sang a perfectly pitched cover of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" and her coach, Adam, marveled at the emotion she put into the song. Although it was a close call, Tessanne's second song of the night, Katy Perry's "Unconditionally," knocked us off our feet. Blake even gushed that he has never seen anything quite like her on this show.
Matthew Schuler (Team Christina) "When A Man Loves A Woman"
Matt's coach, Christina, tasked him with one of her own songs because she didn't think that he has yet to have a truly soulful moment during the competition. And as you can see above, he totally nailed it! Matthew also sang One Direction's "Story of My Life" but the song's limited vocal rages failed to truly highlight his talent.
Will Champlin (Team Adam) "Hey Brother"
Representing Team Adam, Will kicked off the night with a soulful version of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Com." However, it was his second bluegrass-esque performance that really shined on stage. In an attempt to push him Adam assigned Avicii's "Hey Brother" to the artist and Will definitely rose to the challenge.
James Wolpert (Team Adam) "Fell In Love With A Girl"
We're officially obsessed with this cover! In his first performance of the night James put a mellow, acoustic-inspired twist on The White Stripes' classic rock anthem. The Team Adam hopeful also gave a mind-blowing performance of Meatlof's "I'd Do Anything For Love."
Jacquie Lee (Team Christina) "Cry Baby"
We still can't believe that huge voice comes out of such a small 16-year-old. Jacquie definitely made her coach proud on this powerful rendition of Janis Joplin's classic. The pint-size singer also thanked her coach for her continued support by performing Christina's hit ballad, "The Voice Within." We honestly couldn't decide which performance was better, so we flipped a coin. This girl is amazing!
Two of tonight's six contestants will be sent home in tomorrow night's live eliminations of The Voice airing at 9 p.m. on NBC.
