The Voice: Season 9 The Top 10 Try to Make the Semis

Team Gwen: Jeffery Austin sang Jealous by Labrinth-- I love this guy, I just felt the song went around in circles. The song wasn't my favorite, but Jeffery is amazing and I hope people appreciate him enough to vote him through. Gwen said we struggled to find a song for you, and it was perfect for you. I disagree Gwen, that was not a great song choice.

Team Blake: Emily Ann Roberts sang She's Got You by Patsy Cline-- This performance I am loving! Her voice is pitch perfect and so clear. Emily has such great performance quality, and she already seems like a country star. Coach Blake is on his feet! Pharrell said that was fantastic, and she sings with such an old soul. the fact that that is in a 17 year old girl is impressive. Adam said you were good when you started, now you're phenomenal. Blake said I have never had a better collaborator than working with Emily Ann.

Team Gwen: Braiden Sunshine sang Radioactive by Imagine Dragons-- I am very mixed on this performance. I like the idea of the song, and Braiden seemed genuinely excited to do it. That being said, I don't think he had the range or dynamics to make the vocal really pop. Gwen said every week you improve and you were so relaxed tonight, everybody loves you.

Team Adam: Shelby Brown sang Go Rest High on That Mountain by Vince Gill-- Very heartfelt and authentic performance from Shelby. She does seem to get stronger as a competitor every week. Pharrell said this was her best performance, and she connected to the intention of the person who wrote the song.

Team Gwen: Korin Bukowski sang Same Old Love by Selena Gomez-- I actually really like this performance, and I feel like Korin improved immensely from one week to the next. She really stepped it up in terms of performance value an vocals. There was a lot more conviction and sass.

Team Adam: Amy Vachal sang Bye Bye Bye by NSYNC-- Adam said the way you sing these songs is creative and you should be rewarded. I didn't love this as much as I loved Hotline Bling but this was good. Amy should move through to the Semis.

Team Adam: Jordan Smith sang Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley-- Wow, I loved all the personal touches that Jordan put into that performance and vocal. Once again, everyone is on their feet, and so rightfully so. Jordan, if that doesn't hit number one, I do not know what will. Blake said every time you get on the stage we have the same response. Pharrell said there is not much we can do to compliment what you do, the best word to describe it is effortless. Adam said I had a taping of this I was watching and it literally gave me chills. You lift me every time I hear you sing, it is an experience. You are beyond what I ask for and you astonish me every single day.

Team Blake: Zach Seabaugh sang Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen-- Zach is a natural born performer and vocalist. I feel like he and Emily Ann should be co-headlining their own tour. The vocals were so good, I could see him on Broadway, I could see him doing his own country album. I think sky is the limit for him. Adam said it is a shame you have no confidence, awesome job. Blake said I don't think we have ever heard the screaming from girls we have heard here before. I am going out on a limb here but I will see you in the finale.

Team Pharrell: Madi Davis sang Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper-- Blake and Pharrell on their feet. The vocal just blew the roof off the place. Madi sounded amazing, and her interpretation was so different. Adam said it is amazing to see how far everyone has some, weird, awesome version of the song... really beautiful. Gwen said you're amazing and talented, and I want to buy your album. Blake said I am about to download that. Pharrell said that was sick.

Team Blake: Barrett Baber sang I Just Want to Lay You Down by Conway Twitty-- I think this was one of my fave Barrett performances because it was super controlled on the vocal yet powerful. Adam said that was my fave performance from you in a while, it really went back to your roots, it was real and it was you. Blake said top ten on Itunes, I have never heard you sing better than that. What a great moment.

My prediction: Someone from Team Gwen is going home
