Austin is having a lot of trouble with the song and feels pressured; but is prepared to give it his all because this is something he wants to do with his life.

Blake believed that was his break out performance; since day one they were trying to master this range in his voice and loved how he was so good. Christina was surprised with how hard he rocked that song and was impressed. Adam felt it was really great and loved how amazing his range was; the sound of his voice and his high tones was really good. CeeLo says that he is a fan of his and didn’t realize he had that much range; it looked so effortless and he is just amazed. [VIDEO HERE]

Jacquie feels the yoga gave her more control of her breath; Jacquie is singing “Clarity” by Zedd; Christina believes Jacquie needs to make a deeper connection with the audience to nail this song.

Christina says that she is so lovely and loved seeing her in that setting; she believes the vulnerable feel was very touching. CeeLo says that she is one of the best they have but some moments in the early bits of the song was a little unnerving; but it was still awesome. Blake says that he agrees with CeeLo and wants to see Jacquie do some stronger songs. Adam says that she is very young, but what she did was very beautiful and commends her on it. [VIDEO HERE]

Next up is Will Champlin from team Adam who was saved by America; Adam is incredibly proud of Will. Will feels like he knows where he’d like to be as an artist now with the help from Adam; he’s been given the song “Love Me Again” by John Newman. Will is excited about this song and loves how upbeat it is; it’s challenging but Adam is pushing him really hard to nail this song.

Adam says that Will has been passed around between coaches a lot but he truly believes that he belongs here; the performance felt really good because Will was so comfortable with the song. Christina says she loves Will and felt that he has the full package; she felt the song really felt like it was his own.

Caroline is singing “Leaving On a Jet Plane” by John Denver; it’s one of her favorite songs and wanted to sit it because it means so much for her.

CeeLo says that it was so nice; she really puts a smile on his face with her performances and he supports her so much. He is pleased about letting her choose her own song and losing herself to it; he really believes that she is consistent with her quality but felt the song at one point kind of felt like it might overpower her. Adam says that this was really great for him because he got to see her make a statement; he liked seeing her stay true to herself and felt that she is good at song choices. [VIDEO HERE]

Next up is Cole Vosbury; Blake feels Cole is the most creative person on the show. Cole is doing one of his favorite songs in the world; he is so happy Blake gave it to him. Cole is really glad to be with Blake because he’s guiding him so well in his music; he really doesn’t want to leave. Cole is singing “To Be With You” by Mr. Big.

Blake is so happy and can’t see how somebody would not like Cole; he really feels like the girls are on board for the Cole train. He loved how it was so acoustic and personal; he really nailed it. Adam says that Cole could have done the song in any way and hasn’t heard that song in so long; Adam has his heart broken knowing Cole isn’t on his team. CeeLo says he’s so proud of how far he’s come and supports him so much; he loves how open Cole is and how comfortable he is singing. [VIDEO HERE]

Ray feels like it’s a song that he can relate to and Blake believes it’s what makes him sing the song better.

Blake says that he can’t hear a thing with the crowd going crazy; he believed it was an awesome performance. Last week Ray rattled the cage of who he was but feels like he now showed off who he truly is and the chorus was just perfect. Christina says she loved the performance but was thinking that out everyone here Ray has shown the most growth; at first she couldn’t tell who he was but now she feels that Ray has found an identity that suits him well. CeeLo says that he agrees with Christina; he loves Ray’s soulful singing and believes it was a great job.

Adam says that song is one of the hardest ones to sing and a favorite of his; he believes that James took the song and makes it his own. He has such an individualistic way with how he performs; he would buy the album. Christina loves the look and the song choice; the whole thing really impressed her and his voice is so clean. Blake says vote for James! [VIDEO HERE]

Next up is Kat Robichaud and she was saved by America’s tweets; CeeLo says that she has nine lives and wants to allow her to be the artist she is. Kat is singing “We Belong” by Pat Benatar; Kat loves the song and how it shows off a more vulnerable song to herself. CeeLo wants the song to be on epic proportions; he wants this performance to embody Kat’s style of performing.

CeeLo says that he is so proud of Kat, he loved seeing what all of her hard work had become; it was so amazing to see how she was true to herself on stage. He believes the performance was done so well; it will live forever that performance. Adam says it was incredible but in the past she seemed to struggle and felt it was the perfect song for Kat; it was literally what everyone has been wanting to see from Kat the whole time.

Christina believes that it’s the first time people will see this romantic side of Matthew; Matthew says it’s interesting to sing this and is obviously on the lookout for the perfect girl.

Christina says that they all love him and that he should take in how every time he finishes a performance the crowd goes so wild; he makes everyone go crazy. She believes that he is amazing and proved it once again that he can do everything; she doesn’t even need to write notes about him because there’s nothing bad to say.
