'The Voice' Playoffs Night 2: Coaches Round Out Final Top 12
Night two of "The Voice" Playoffs aired on Tuesday, April 18 on NBC, featuring contestants from Team Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine fighting against each other for the 6 remaining top 12 spots. The six advancing singers would join the previously advancing singers in Playoffs night one from Team Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton.
Team Gwen was first up, featuring comeback artist Johnny Gates. Johnny was determined to get one spot for the top 12 by performing his own version of "Hands to Myself" by Selena Gomez which made Alicia gush that she "loved" his energy. Next up was Troy Ramey, delivering a lovely and emotional performance of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You". "I think you're incredible. I'm so proud of you," Gwen raved. Quizz Swanigan, meanwhile, belted out "My Girl" by The Temptations. Alicia praised Quizz for his "impressive" performance.
Next, Brennley Brown took the stage to perform a country song "Fly" by Maddie & Tae. She accompanied herself on the guitar, much to Gwen's like as she said, "I’m learning so much from you and I’m so grateful for that." JChosen later followed Brennley's performance with "Nothing Compares to U" by Prince. It was a tough number, but he flawlessly nailed it. Last to perform from Team Gwen was Hunter Plake, who chose to sing a slow version of Sia Furler's "Electric Heart". Adam gushed, "There's a lot of great singers. But you are a great singer and someone who truly represents what’s going on in music right now."
The moment of truth had come and host Carson Daly revealed that America voted Hunter and Brennley to go through the final top 12. To fill the final spot for her team, Gwen chose Troy. JChosen, Johnny and Quizz were eliminated.
Comeback singer Johhny Hayes opened that night's performances of Team Adam. Belting out "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by The Temptations, he impressed the coaches. Hanna Eyres was up next, singing a rendition of Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper". Levine praised Hanna's powerful voice and believed that she deserved "to be on the show." Josh West later took the stage to flaunt a total rock vibe with "More Than a Feeling" by Boston. He did a good job as Adam couldn't help but praising him, "You're a bada**. And you're so good for the show because you kick a**."
Adam made Mark Isaiah sing "All Time Low" by Jon Bellion to avoid him coming off as too conventional. Blown away by Mark's performance, Adam begged the audiences to vote for Mark. Up next from Team Adam was Lilli Passero, performing "It's Too Late" by Carole King which according to Alicia was "beautiful" on Lilli's voice. Jesse Larson, the last performer, wrapped up that night singing "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder. It was a perfect mix of vocals and guitar and Adam dubbed his performance "the best vocal of the night."
Unfortunately, only three out of 6 singers from Team Adam who would advance to the top 12. The results showed that America wanted to see more of Jesse and Lilli. Adam picked Mark to round out the top 12.
The top 12 of current season 12 will sing for America's vote next week. "The Voice" airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 P.M. on NBC.
