Kelly and John both agreed that the soaring notes sounded like Queen.
KATIE RAE – Katie sang “Stormy Weather.” Ariana told her that she is “such a queen’ and one of her favorite performances so far. She keeps getting better and better. Kelly said Katie’s voice is insane. Her voice and rasp “are undeniable.”
GYMANI – Gymani sang “Say Something” by A Great Big World. Blake told Gymani that she’s trained them to all know that when she gets on stage something great is going to happen. She didn’t disappoint.

John said, “Jeremy I love watching you perform because you put so much heart and energy, and spirit into every performance.” He told him “amazing voice.” That vocal ability, and range are “stunning.” Kelly told Jeremy that it’s her favorite performance of his on the show ever. “You’ve lived the message, probably. You feel it.” She added that he’s a great storyteller, and her favorite at that.
HAILEY MIA – Hailey performed the “Traitor” song by Olivia Rodirigo. She’s 14, the youngest on “The Voice” this season. Former coach Ariana said she found a “perfect home on Team Kelly and never sounded better.” She said she’s so proud of her.” Kelly was standing because Hailey just turned 14 and is incredible. She said she didn’t sound like that at 14 years old. She said all the record labels are idiots because Hailey is “so good!”

JOSHUA VACANTI – Joshua Vacanti sang “You and I” by Lady Gaga. Ariana reacted “you better sing.” She said she’s never going to forgive John for Blocking her from him. She loved that he covered a Lady Gaga song “all my worlds are colliding,” she finished. John said one of the best decisions he made in his life was to Block Ariana Grande from Joshua. He loves how Joshua “gives everything.” John finished with Joshua’s voice is “incredible and stunning.”
JERSHIKA MAPLE – Jershika sang “Beggin'” song. Kelly was her former coach. Kelly said it was the worst decision she made on the show when she let Jershika go. Kelly also commented that Jershika’s vocals are insane. I’m so happy for you John.” John said he’s so happy for him too! One of the best decisions Kelly made was letting him Steal Jershika. “Your voice is stunning. You don’t just have a great voice, you walk with purpose,” and he loves working with her.
SAMUEL HARNESS – John said he made it sound like it was HIS song and it was so “powerful and compelling.”
DAVID VOGEL – Former coach Ariana told David that she’s “so proud of him” and he is getting better and better. She told him that she’s holding him to that tattoo.

RYLEIGH PLANK – Ryleigh sang the Whitney Houston song “I’m Your Baby Tonight.” Ariana thought it was phenomenal and she picked these tremendous songs. She told her she adores her.
HOLLY FORBES – Holly knocked it out of the park when she sang “Torn.” Kelly told her between her and Jershika they’re killing her. The bad part about her show is that they lose artists that they love. Kell finished with that Holly was so amazing and it was so beautiful. Ariana said it was a brilliant song choice. “You just sang the hell out of it.” She’s consistent and knows who she is as an artist.

LIBIANCA – Libianca sang “Woman.” All the coaches were standing. Ariana said when Libianca started rapping she left her body and almost passed out “what a thrilling performance.” Blake said they’re all freaking out over Libianca’s voice.” He told everyone that Libianca has to feel the connection (to the song) and that’s how she’s able to deliver a performance like that
PARIS WINNINGHAM – Paris sang “I Wish it Would Rain” by the Temptations. When his performance finished, Carson Daly noted that “shoes were flying” (from Kelly) and all the coaches were standing. Blake said he was listening to Paris rehearse this week. He took a moment, “I want to thank “The Voice” Gods for putting Paris on my Team, and thank God, God for the moment of temporary deafness and insanity he put on John for letting Paris go!”
LANA SCOTT – Lana sang “Next Girl.” Blake said it’s a heavy load that he put on her shoulders. “I can not be more proud of you and your performance.” He said Lana is the Country artist this season. “We need you on the radio in Country music right now.” Kelly agreed.
WENDY MOTEN – Wendy sang “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. She got a standing ovation from all the coaches. Kelly said she is “obsessed with Wendy. “You are so gifted.” Kelly said “It is insane if you don’t make the finale.” Blake said he’s been doing this show for 21 seasons now and there is nobody that he wants this more for ever than for Wendy. “You deserve this,” Blake told Wendy.
