Chris Blue (“Rhythm Nation”)
Blue had the biggest number of the night with his version of this 1989 Janet Jackson crossover hit. He managed to make her signature song his own, adding some of his unique dance moves in the middle of a performance that had the crowd cheering. His coach was his biggest cheerleader: “You can come out and do one of the most iconic songs in the world, and you can handle it.”
Lauren Duski (“The Dance”)
Duski displayed her country credentials by taking on this 1990 Garth Brooks classic and reinventing it. Her coach was thrilled with the result: “One of my favorite songs ever, and literally you made me feel like I was hearing it for the first time tonight.”
Jesse Larson (“Takin’ It to the Streets”)
This 1976 Doobie Brothers hit was the first to feature lead singer Michael McDonald. Larson nailed this soft rock hit and his coach was delighted: “I think the coolest thing about this guy is that he does it all with such a humble attitude, that he just goes up there and kills it every night. I think he’s the most consistent. I think he’s the most interesting.”
Aliyah Moulden (“Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours”)
Moulden has done many Motown songs over the season and she finished with this 1970 chart-topper by Stevie Wonder. Her coach sang her praises: “Every time you get on that stage, you make people smile and you make them forget, for a minute, their life.”
