He then lets them go off and pick their own song, they choose the song “Climax” by Usher. Chris tells them they don’t have to be so nervous and need to really make the performance believable; he wants them to be more together on this song.
Blake says that it was a low blow to sing one of Usher’s song after both leaving his team, though says Jake’s falceto really impressed him.

Shakira says it was great, she liked how Bria worked her dynamics and saw Madeline be so in command. Adam says that Madeline is so much stronger every time and saw Bria do something different but felt like he wanted more.
