The Voice Top 8 Recap: Christina Grimmie Covers Lil Wayne (Seriously), May Be Woman to Beat

by at . Comments

The stakes were higher than ever on The Voice Monday night, as the top eight took the stage competing your votes and five spots in next week's installment.

That's right, THREE singers are going home tonight, and while there will clearly be some dissent no matter who goes home, the favorites did shine Monday.

Let's break down the performances we saw, shall we?

Christina Grimme of Team Adam covered Lil Wayne's "How to Love," and it was a surprising show-stopper, likely cementing her frontrunner status.

Sisaundra Lewis of Team Blake took it to the top with a cover of Ike and Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High." She is always close to perfect.

Josh Kaufman of Team Usher nailed his take on Bon Iver's "I Can't Make You Love Me" in perhaps the best male performance of the Top 8 Monday.

Delvin Choice of Team Adam covered "I Believe I Can Fly," and certainly did it justice, making us wish it were his song and not that creep R. Kelly's.

Audra McLaughlin of Team Blake sang Rebecca Lynn Howard's "Forgive," and there wasn't much about the effort we saw that needs any forgiving.

Kristen Merlin of Team Shakira poured her heart and soul into Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck," an emotional country track that warmed many hearts.

Kat Perkins of Team Adam wowed the coaches and the crowd with her take on Daft Punk and The Voice Season 7 coach Pharrell Williams' "Get Lucky."

Jake Worthington of Team Blake put his spin on Brooks and Dunn's "Hillbilly Deluxe." Think it'll be enough to carry him to next week's deluxe top five.

Well? Who do you think is in danger and who do you think has what it takes to advance to the Top 5? Share your comments on The Voice with us below!
