The Voice continued with another solid performance show that proved most of the people still in the competition deserved their spot. 

The top 11 took to the stage to try and get the competitive edge to advance into the top 10.

Let’s run down the 11 performances. 

The Judges on The Voice

Stephanie Rice

Stephanie has struggled to move out of her vocal range to show audiences she can change things up. She successfully managed to do just that with "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who. 

It was a surprisingly good performance and gave me hope that Stephanie would be able to make to the finals. 

Aliyah Moulden

Aliyah’s performance of "Take it Back" by Reba McEntire was, like, the worst performance of the season. No, seriously, she screamed her way through it. 

It was a surprisingly horrid rendition of a classic song. Screaming through songs is not the way to go, and Blake should have known better. 


TSoul can do no wrong. Every single week, he gets given a song and makes it his own. "Lay Me Down" by Sam Smith is a difficult song to sing, but there was something about it that felt so original. 

The performance faltered when he left the piano, but it was still a cut above some of the others. 

Blake Shelton is Ready for Battle

Lilli Passero

Lilli went with "Town Without Pity" by Gene Pitney. It was up there as one of her best. It was perfect. There was nothing to fault with it. 

She made the song her own, and that’s what artist should be doing at this stage of the competition. 

Hunter Plake

Hunter went with "All I Want" by Kodaline. Despite some hiccups, it was a solid number that showed just how far he has come since his days struggling to emerge as a strong competitor. 

Gwen said she let him make his own decisions and I think she should continue to do so. 

Vanessa Ferguson

Vanessa went with "Diamonds" by Rihanna, and I immediately rolled my eyes. I’m so over chart music being used on competition series. 

However, the performance blew me away. Vanessa has been all over the place with her performances of late, but she’s trying to be a better performer. 

Alicia Keys on The Voice Season 12

Lauren Duski

Lauren went with "Somewhere In My Broken Heart" by Billy Dean. It was amazing. She brought her A game and proved the naysayers wrong. 

She hit every note flawlessly, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming for her next. 

Mark Isaiah

Mark is struggling to change things up, and it’s proving that he has a very limited vocal range. Singing "How to Love" by Lil Wayne should have been his time to shine. 

Instead, it was the same one-note route he has traveled before. 

Jesse Larson

Jesse’s performance of "Human" by Rag’n’Bone Man was music to my ears. Despite a weak opening, he pulled it together pretty quickly. 

More performances like this and he may just win the season. 

Gwen Stefani on The Voice Season 13

Brennley Brown

Brennley went with "River" by Joni Mitchell. It was yet another solid performance from the youngster. 

All of the notes were on point, and it sounded like a performance you would hear on finale night. Yes, she’s that good. 

Chris Blue

Chris Blue went with "When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge. It was a solid performance from him. He’s become a reliable performer over the course of the season. 

It should be enough to save him for another few weeks.
