#VoiceLive tonight has performances and voting tonight so we’ll see results in real time. Alicia talks to her team before the performances and gives them some last minute notes and support before they’ll face the stage. 20 will be cut to 12 tonight.

#TeamAlicia performances

First up is Christian Cuevas singing Yesterday, a Beatles cover. He sings beautifully and plays his guitar to accompany. Christian brings all four judges up on their feet. Kylie Rothfield is next with her cover of the Stones’ Satisfaction. She rocks the house and has everyone on their feet too.

We’ McDonald is next and she sings Home. She slays it and the crowd is loud and shouting as she wraps her performance. Next up is Josh Halverson doing Sam Cooke’s classic Cupid from the 60s. He’s made it folksy cool and the crowd and judges dig it.

The last to perform tonight for Alicia is Sa’Rayah singing I’d Rather Go Blind. She really works her powerful voice and fills the room with it. She also gets the judges on their feet and Carson says wow. The voting for Team Alicia is open but closes at the end of the commercial break. Only three of five will survive the night.

#TeamBlake gets its shot

Blake visits with his team and gets them ready for their live performances and then his five take their turns. First up is Dana Harper doing Hall & Oates Maneater. She’s slowed it down and totally changed the 80s hit. Dana brings the house to their feet.

Now we see Austin Allsup doing Waylon Jenning’s I Ain’t Living Long Like This. This upbeat country song has the crowd grooving. Jason Warrior is next up and he does Drake’s One Dance. Jason goes nuts and winds up on his back on the stage – it was a true performance.

Sundance Head is next and he does Keith Urban’s Blue Ain’t Your Color and man is he wailing and fills the room with sound. Last up for Blake’s team is Courtney Harrell with It Must Have Been Love, a Roxette hit from the 90s. She’s flawless in her delivery.

#TeamAlicia results

While voting wraps up for Team Blake, Carson delivers results to Alicia’s team. Miley says this show makes her nervous and it’s really intense. Miley says she’d like to see Christian and We’ stay. Carson reveals the top two on Team Alicia are Christian Cuevas and We’ McDonald just as Miley predicted.

Now Alicia has to decide who stays. Josh Halverson, Sa’Rayah and Kylie Rothfield wait to find out. Alicia says Josh is such a one of a kind then says Kylie overcomes all her obstacles. She says Sa’Rayah makes her feel God in the room. Alicia says they achieved so much and are all incredible.

Alicia stands and Carson tells her to choose who moves on. Alicia says she loves and believes in them all but decides to keep Sa’Rayah. #TeamAlicia in the top 12 will be represented by Christian, Sa’Rayah and We’.

#TeamMiley performs

Miley has love and last-minute notes for her five performers before they take the live stage. Sophia Urista is up first and does Rod Stewart’s Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? She does a unique cover on Rod’s disco era classic that the crowd loves.

Darby Walker does the 1960’s Those Were the Days. It’s funky as usual and the crowd digs it. Aaron Gibson is next and does Round Here by Counting Crows. His voice is so raspy and hot. Whew… The audience loves it!

Next up for Miley’s team is Belle Jewel who does Del Shannon’s Runaway. She’s a special flower as always and makes the song her own. Ali Caldwell is last for Team Miley and she performs Irma Thomas’ Times Have Changed and her powerhouse voice has everyone on their feet.

#TeamBlake results

Now it’s time to get the results for Blake’s team and all five take the stage. First moving to the next round is Sundance Head and his big country voice. America also saved Austin Allsup. Both his guy country artists are safe and moving on.

Courtney Harrell, Jason Warrior, and Dana Harper wait for Blake’s decision. He says Dana and Courtney he’s worked more with than Jason and says any of them could win this and he believes it in his heart. Blake says this sucks so bad and tells Miley she’ll hate when she has to do it.

Miley says she doesn’t want to. Blake says he has to pick someone and Carson asks who he’s saving. Blake decides to keep Courtney Harrell. She’s floored and thrilled.

#TeamAdam takes the stage

Adam works with the team on their live performances and talks about the team and his hopes for them. First up for Adam’s team is Brendan Fletcher singing To Love Somebody, the Bee Gees classic. He brings a great depth to his performance and his guitar playing is spot on.

Next up is Simone Gundy doing Diamonds by Sia. Her voice does justice to the challenging song. She belts out some huge notes. Wow. She brings down the house. Josh Gallagher does Colder Weather and remember he’s Adam’s only country artist. His strong voice carries it gorgeously.

Adam’s next artist is teen crooner Riley Elmore doing Luck Be a Lady by old blue eyes Frank Sinatra. Last up is Billy Gillman who does Roy Orbison’s Crying (side note this was on The Walking Dead last night when Daryl was crying). His voice is matched by the challenging song. Big notes. Big reaction.

#TeamMiley results

Miley’s team comes out to get their results and Carson congratulates them. Alicia says her top two rom her team would be Darby and Ali. The crowd seems to agree. Carson reveals that the top two artists saved by America are Aaron Gibson and Ali Caldwell.

Now Miley has to choose between Sophia, Belle and Darby. The crowd chants and Miley says she doesn’t listen to what others tell her but she’s choosing Darby Walker. Ali, Aaron and Darby will represent Miley in the next round.

#TeamAdam results

All of Adam’s artists take the stage to find their results. Carson asks Blake to choose two. Blake says Billy just slayed it and he’d also choose Riley and says he and Adam both like that. Adam says wow, they all were amazing and he believes all five would move on if it was overall best performances.
