It was an incredible night of live performances on last night’s (November 7) episode of The Voice. Team Christina Aguilera and Team Cee-Lo Green both took the stage during part two of the live shows to give performances that they all hope will be strong enough to make it into the top 12.
Before the result are revealed tonight in the first live elimination of season three, take a look at what went down:
Adriana Louise: Xtina said now’s the time to win them (the crowd, America) over and Adriana made a solid effort to do just that with her performance of Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Adriana found her confidence and delivered flawless note after flawless note. She impressed all the coaches but mostly, her mentor Xtina who called her a star.
Cody Belew: Cody showed off his softer side and holy crap is it a good side! Cody completely brought down the house with a stunning performance of “One More Try” by George Michael. The performance turned Adam into a believer and Blake thought it was his best performance yet. Proud coach Cee-Lo Green gushed about the singer’s ability to entertain yet be believable.
De’Borah: The amazing performances just keep on coming! De’Borah threw down her heart and soul on the stage with a stirring performance of “Who Knew” by Pink. Adam thought her soul was incredible and Blake loved the way she moved. Xtina praised her as the real deal.
Diego Val: Diego’s performance of Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailamos” was solid but vocally, could have used a bit of work. Adam thought he seemed bored at times but still liked the performance. Blake gives him a pass because he’s so cool but Xtina totally agrees with Adam.
Mackenzie Bourg: Mackenzie has come a long way since his slightly disastrous battle rounds performance. He stood center stage with his guitar and had the girls screaming as he performed One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” He stepped away from his guitar later in the performance but the screams continued for the young crooner. Most of the coaches would like to see him do something with depth and Cee-Lo wants him to make the crowd believe.
Devyn Deloera: Devyn showed off her softer side with Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” and gave a beautifully vulnerable performance. She got her moment to go back to powerhouse Devyn with a high note at the end that Blake and her coach Xtina just loved.
Nicholas David: Nicholas rocked the stage with a soulful performance of Barry White’s “My First My Last My Everything.” Adam just loved it and now wants to make a baby…because of the baby-making music. Proud papa Cee-Lo said the singer could do no wrong in his book.
Sylvia Yacoub: Sylvia–like many of the other singers–wanted to show off a different and softer side of herself. She did this by performing a stripped down, piano-driven (she plays the piano!) version of Katy Perry’s “The One That For Away.” Cee-Lo said it was his favorite performance of the night and Adam thought it was a great song choice.
Dez Duron: Dez took Hunter Hayes’ “Wanted” and turned it into pure pop goodness with his performance. The ladies couldn’t stop screaming and his coach couldn’t stop gushing, giving the singer a round of applause and standing ovation when asked how she felt about the performance.
Trevin Hunte: Trevin showcased nothing but raw talent with his stripped down performance of Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You.” Blake just loved it, saying he has what it takes to win. Xtina was captivated but she wants Cee-Lo to push him for more.
