Team Miley

Starting off the night was team Miley’s Ali Caldwell.  Coach Miley trusted her with a big Dolly Parton song, “9-5,” and she did not let her down.  After the performance she got rave reviews from coach Adam, who said he had wanted her to do country and her own coach told her, “you are such a star, I am so excited for you to win this show.”  Next up for Miley was Aaron Gibson who was instantly saved in last week’s elimination show.  He gave a very somber performance of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails, which coach Miley called a perfect performance.  Last up for team Miley was her mini-me, Darby Walker, singing a very fun and passionate version of “You Don’t Own Me.”  Alicia Keys told her “you should feel amazing right now.”

Team Blake

Sundance Head opened up for team Blake singing “No One” by The Voice’s very own Alicia Keys.  He received a standing ovation from all four judges for his take on the classic song.  His coach said this was a breakout moment for him on the show.  Second to take the stage for Team Blake was his only non-country artist, Courtney Harrell singing a very powerful performance of “What I did for Love” from The Chorus Line.  Blake stated that this was the happiest he had seen her since he had met her.  Last up for Team Blake was Austin Allsup, the classic country singer for the team singing “Turn the Page.”  Coach Adam had only nice things to say about the performance stating “That was by far, unquestionably, the best performance you’ve had on the show.”

Team Adam

Possibly the strongest team this season, Team Adam, started off strong with country singer, Josh Gallagher.  This week he gave a very fun and engaging performance of “Drunk on your Love” by Brett Eldredge and after coach Adam said, “There is nobody better than you in this competition at connecting with the audience.” Next up for Team Adam was The Voice front-runner, Billy Gilman, taking another whack at an Adele song.  This was by far the most emotional and stripped down performance from him, using just a piano and his incredible voice.  It seems as those even judges can’t think of any more complimentary words to describe his voice as Blake Shelton said “I’m running out of nice things to say to you at this point.” Last up for Team Adam was heartthrob, Brendan Fletcher, singing Bruce Springsteen and getting a swell reaction from coach Adam saying that he has a very important and forgotten voice.  

Team Alicia

Team Alicia is down to its final two members and first to take the stage was a newly engage, Christian Cuevas, showing a different side to his performing.  Coach Miley was dancing and said she was very into it.  Cuevas’ coach Alicia said, “there is no denying that your voice is so big.”  Wé McDonald closed on the night of performances singing Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” where she closed the house down.  It seems as though Alicia has nothing to worry about in regards to losing either of her members in elimination.


The first two artists saved by America were Sundance Head (Team Blake) and Wé McDonald (Team Alicia), who is also the youngest left in the competition.  America next saved Ali Caldwell (Team Miley) and superstar, Billy Gilman (Team Adam).  Next up to be saved were Team Blake and Team Adam’s Austin Allsup and Brendan Fletcher.  The second artist from Alicia’s team, Christian Cuevas, also advanced to the top 10 which was no surprise.  Next saved was Courtney Harrell (Team Blake) and the last person automatically voted through by America’s votes was Team Adam’s, Josh Gallagher, giving Blake Shelton and Adam Levine both perfect scores the first two weeks of lives.  This left two coach Miley contestants, Darby Walker and Aaron Gibson to sing for their spot in the top 10.

Walker performed fist singing “Your Song” by Elton John and Gibson followed singing “Budapest” by George Ezra.  After the voting period it was once again Gibson instantly saved for the second week in a row sending Darby Walker home.

It seems that veteran coaches, Blake and Adam, have the edge in this competition as of now, but never count anyone out.  We will be back next week talking Top 10.  For now, comment below letting us know who your favorite is and follow us @PopHeartsTV!
