The live performances for fan votes have finally arrived on “The Voice”. From this point on only the fan votes will count as two singers are eliminated each week. Each week the singers with the lowest amount of votes will be eliminated no matter what team they are on.

First up was team Blake’s Michaela Paige with “Blow Me One Last Kiss”. Christina said Michaela is one of her favourite singers, was fun to watch and had a voice that was bright and bold but not fluffy. Cee Lo agreed with Christina; adding Michaela worked the stage like a pro. Adam also agreed with Christina; adding Michaela was amazing and graceful. Coach Blake said the performance left no doubt in his mind that he made the right choice to keep Michaela.

Team Christina’s Dez Duron performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”. Cee Lo called the performance impeccable and wonderful through and through; adding that Dez was the total package with a great voice. Adam noted that Dez found the style that fits him; adding it was Dez’s best performance. Blake loved that Dez changed his style and agreed with the girls who were cheering. Christina asked how could you not love this guy; adding he had star quality on stage an was an old school crooner voice.

Adriana Louise of team Christina performed the Carrie Underwood song “Good Girl”. Cee Lo said she sounded great as ever and noted she continued to improve and was committed. Adam said she did a good job. Blake said that he was a big fan of Adriana’s; adding he was happy she did a country song but made it her own. Christina said Adriana was playful and noted it was a hard song to sing.

Team Cee Lo’s Cody Belew took on the Tina Turner hit “The Best”. Adam called Cody one of the best natural performers; adding that Cody reminded him of Prince on the stage. Blake agreed with Adam; adding Cody owned the stage. Christina enjoyed the performance saying it was fun to watch but wanted to see more bopping on the stage. Cee Lo said that the performance was fun and free flowing.

Team Adam’s Amanda Brown gave a performance that Blake noted had a different sound to her voice; adding it was always good when Amanda performed. Christina noted Amanda was talented but was still waiting to see who Amanda really was. Cee Lo felt the performance was a little constricted but said she sang from the heart. Adam noted the performance wasn’t perfect but said he didn’t care about that because no one was perfect. Adam said that Amanda had the power to deliver the vocals and could win the entire thing.

Team Adam’s Bryan Keith sang the Amy Winehouse hit “Back to Black”. Blake said Bryan just took the lead with a solid and really good performance. Christina agreed with Blake; adding that Bryan had a modern raspy Sinatra thing going. Cee Lo said that Brian showed how strong his voice really was. Adam called the performance a break out moment for Bryan; adding he shows how incredible he really was.

Cassadde Pope from team Blake performed “Behind These Hazel Eyes” as she played the guitar. Christina said it was her favourite performance from Cassadee so far; adding it was a perfect song choice for her. Cee Lo said that Cassadee sang really sincerely. Adam noted there was a glimpse of who Cassadee really was. Blake noted that there was something undefined aobut Cassadee and there were no limits to what she could do.

Team Cee Lo’s Trevin Hunte performed “When a Man Loves a Woman” that brought the coaches to their feet. Adam noted that that it was hard to say much after that performance; adding that Trevin was a gift from god that he had never seen or heard anything like it and Trevin had a magical ability. Blake called the performance amazing and awesome with nothing held back. Christina said Trevin brought it home and lamented that she wished she were Trevin’s coach. Cee Lo called Trevin an angel; adding that he was humbled by Trevin’s voice, that Trevin had immense talent, and was a natural born champion.

Melanie Martinez from team Adam gave a performance that Blake said projected her voice like never before; adding she had a unique sound in the competition. Christina noted the emotional performance conveyed a message. Adam noted that Melanie offered something all her own and that there was no one like her in the competition.

Nicholas David from team Cee Lo performed the Huey Lewis hit “Power of Love”. Adam called the performance strange and beautiful; adding he had fun every time he watched Nicholas perform. Blake noted that there were times when Nicholas looked like he was trying to keep up with the music; but noted he always did something different. Cee Lo noted that Nicholas sang naturally from the heart; adding Nicholas represented a minority.

Sylvia Yacoub of team Christina took on the Celine Dion hit “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie “Titanic”. Cee Lo noted that he had never heard anyone else cover the song but it was great because it showed who Sylvia was. Adam said it was an ambitious song choice but she did a good job. Christina called Sylvia tried and true fearless and ambitious but she made the song her own.

The final performance of the night was a classic rock performance from Terry MacDermott of team Blake with the Boston hit “More than a Feeling”. Cee Lo was impressed with the falsetto and the way Terry hit the notes. Adam could barely talk saying Terry was rock and roll music. Blake congratulated Terry; saying he was special, owned it every time her performed, and Terry was classic rock music.
