The Voice Recap: The Top 12 Perform!

by at .

The Top 12 took to the stage to perform for viewer votes Monday night, and one thing became clear during the episode: The crop of current performers are actually very good. 

Now, we're not saying every single one of them is good, but for the most part, this is a decent and deserving bunch. 

The Voice Season 14 Coaching Panel

Let's break down the performances on the night!

Rayshun LaMarr (Team Adam) -  “When Love Takes Over”

While most of the performers were solid, Rayshun sprung a leak. He's a likable person, but his performance was so over the to the top it was difficult to take it seriously. 

The vocals were not up to par, and that's problematic because he's at the freaking live shows. There's a good chance Rayshun's number will be up on the next episode. 

Kaleb Lee (Team Kelly) - “Amazed”

Kaleb turned in a solid rendition of this Lonestar classic. His vocals were at the level expected at this stage, but there were some issues. 

At a few points, they were shaky, and that could become problematic if it continues. He should advance to the next stage. 

Jackie Foster (Team Alicia) -  “Toxic”

It's difficult to take someone seriously who performs a Britney Spears number and expects to be taken seriously. 

It was genuinely all over the place, and there's a good chance Jackie will be exiting in the next elimination.

Alicia Keys, The Voice Season 14

Spensha Baker (Team Blake) - “Down On My Knees”

Spensha brought her A-game to the stage, and she was great. Spensha will likely make it all the way to the end, and that's because she knows what's expected of her. 

Christiana Danielle (Team Alicia) - “Say Something”

Christiana has been one of the better performers throughout her stint on The Voice, and that continued Monday night with a performance worthy of winning awards. 

Everything about it oozed confidence, high production values, and class. 

D.R. King (Team Kelly) - “White Flag”

Performing after Christiana was always going to be difficult, the song choice was way off, and that put him at a disadvantage. 

Gis reimagined version seemed more like karaoke as opposed to making it his own. 

Sharane Calister (Team Adam) - “In My Blood”

Wow. Who knew that performing a Shawn Mendes song would help separate Sharane from the other performers who are middle of the pack?

More big swings like that, and she could solidify herself a place at the end of the competition. 

Brynn Cartelli, Carson Daly, Jamella on The Voice

Pryor Baird (Team Blake) - “Pickin’ Wildflowers”

If you counted Pryor out after that horrid Dolly Parton rendition, we have news for you: He's back and better than ever. 

The country voice benefited the song and proved he had the chops to make it further without relying on gimmicks. 

Brynn Cartelli (Team Kelly) - “Up to the Mountain”

Brynn may well emerge as the winner of the entire season, and it's excellent when you consider that she's just 15-years-old. Everything about it was polished, and up there as one of the best performances of the entire season. 

Jackie Verna, The Voice Season 14 Contestant

Jackie Verna (Team Adam) - “I’m With You”

Jackie has been hit or miss throughout, but she managed to regain focus on Monday night's episode. She went with a genre-bending version of Avril Lavigne's classic. 

Some of the vocals were shaky, but for the most part, Jackie redeemed herself. 

Britton Buchanan (Team Alicia) - “Small Town”

Britton went country, and, of course, it was an epic fail. It's mind-boggling for him to change the direction like this, and probably put him at a disadvantage. 

Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton on The Voice

Kyla Jade (Team Blake) - “One Night Only”

Kyla appeared on stage, belted out a classic soul song that came straight from the heart. It was poignant and filled with everything you would expect from this artist. 

Okay, who do you think will get cut next?
