Adam is up next and has paired Addison Agen against Dennis Drummond. He stole both of these performers from other coaches. Dennis will sing “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix. Dennis wanted a guitar-heavy song to showcase his playing as well as his singing. Addison will sing “Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labrinth. She views herself as an indie folk artists and at 16 years old hopes to make it big. Both Dennis and Addison hit it out of the park. Blake loved both performances but thinks Addison won it for him. Miley is so happy that Addison is still in the game. Jennifer was moved by both singers but Adam ultimately picks Addison to move on with his team.

Miley has paired Janice Freeman and Karli Webster together because of their unique voices. She thinks they will push each other. Janice will sing “I’m Going Down” by Mary Blige. She relates to this song on so many levels and thinks it will showcase her soulfulness. Karli decided to perform “Blue Bayou” by Linda Ronstadt. She is inspired by Linda’s style and the combination of different genres. All three judges agree that Janice knocked it out of the park. Miley was blown away by the level of talent shown by both performers and decides to take Janice on to the next round of the competition.

Jennifer has paired her two soul singers, Davon Fleming and Eric Lyn. Eric will sing “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye. Jennifer hopes Eric will use this song to connect with the audience. Kelly loves Eric’s range. Davon will sing “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me. He picked this song because he connects to it spiritually. Kelly thinks this song is Davon’s testimony and Jennifer is almost in tears with the thought of having to pick between these two artists. Eric takes the stage first and has all of the judges moving to his beat.

Davon takes the stage and Jennifer is on her feet before he finishes the song. Miley thinks both performances were wonderful. Blake loved Eric’s style but felt Davon transformed the room. Jennifer declares Davon as the winner of the knockout battle. Jennifer felt it was a gutting wrenching decision but it had to be made.
