Monday’s final knockout round of “The Voice” determined the remaining seven artists moving on to the live shows. And coach Christina Aguilera held on to her final steal until the last possible dramatic moment.
In that battle for coach Adam Levine, crooner Joshua Davis sang “Arms of a Woman” (Amos Lee) to defeat Lexi Davila, who performed “Anything Could Happen” (Ellie Goulding). After a tough decision, Aguilera welcomed Davila to her team with the last save of the season.
During these knockout rounds the past two weeks, each coach had Nate Ruess (.fun) as an advisor and one steal to save a performer from elimination. In the first two knockout rounds previously, 13 artists had already progressed to the live shows. These seven contestants now join them, bringing the public a top 20 they can now judge at home starting Monday, April 6.
In other battles this Monday:
Team Adam eliminated Barry Minniefield when he sang “What You Won’t Do For Love” (Bobby Caldwell) against Tonya Boyd-Cannon, who performed “I Wish” (Stevie Wonder).
Team Christina seemed to have a pretty easy victory for India Carney when she sang “Big White Room” (Jessie J) against Joe Tolo, who had the hit tune “One of Us” (Joan Osborne).
Coach Pharrell Williams didn’t particularly care for either of the performances by Lowell Oakley (“My Girl,” The Temptations) vs. Jacob Rummell (“Life of the Party,” Shawn Mendes). He selected Oakley and knocked out Rummell.
Aguilera also had a battle between the soulful Rob Taylor, who sang “Love and Happiness” (Al Green) and defeated Treeva Gibson, who performed “Chasing Pavements” (Adele).
