9:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘The Voice’!” In episode 18, Team Reba took the stage first. After Jordan Rainer (“Boondocks”), Ms. Monét (“Until You Come Back to Me (That’s What I’m Gonna Do)”), Jacquie Roar (“The Chain”), Noah Spencer (“Jolene”) and Ruby Leigh (“Long Long Time”) sang their hearts out, Reba made the gut-wrenching decision to eliminate Ms. Monét and Noah. Then Team Gwen‘s Stee (“Shut Up and Dance”), Bias (“Where I Find God”), Rudi (“My All”), Tanner Massey (“Impossible”), Lennon Vanderdoes (“Falling Slowly”) and Kara Tenae (“Rain”) all gave their best before Gwen decided to send home Stee, Rudi and Lennon. Let’s see how things play out on Team Legend!

9:02 p.m. – John started the night with his Super Save, Azán, who he brought back after Niall stole her in the battles and the let go of in the knockouts. Azán went with “Adorn” for this round because she felt like it was one that people could feel her as an artist on. John worked with her on some pacing concerns in order to make it sound “more sexy and cool.”

9:06 p.m. – Reba called her stage presence “refreshing” and her voice “incredible.” Niall thought it was Azán’s best performance “by a mile,” notably because of the runs. Gwen thought it was both “sexy” and “swaggy.” John called it “literally perfect” and said that there was nothing that he’d change about the way she performed the song.

9:09 p.m. – Next up was Kristen Brown, the country singer who John stole from Team Gwen in the knockouts, with her take on “Need You Now.” Kristen felt like this “sad song” would be her first stripped down song when she’s done “big belty” songs in the other rounds. John felt like it was a song that Kristen could make a statement with and that her rehearsal of it was very strong.

9:14 p.m. – Niall said it was a perfect song choice and thought she “smashed the opening lines.” Gwen mentioned “the dynamics” in her voice and Reba said she “represented country music so well.” John said it was “another level” because of her finesse and breath control that she executed throughout the track.

9:20 p.m. – For Kaylee Shimizu‘s next song John picked “You Put a Move on My Heart” because she’s one of the few singers in the competition that can hit the big notes and thought this would show off all her talent at the right time. With the vocal aspect wrapped up, John wanted Kaylee to focus on connecting to the song emotionally even at her young age.

9:24 p.m. – Reba complimented Kaylee’s range and said that she’s “destined for stardom.” Niall appreciated that she tried something different once again. John said that Kaylee’s “low voice is really gorgeous” and then she’s able to go “to notes in the stratosphere,” which makes her a special artist.

9:30 p.m. – John had Taylor Deneen sing “Get Here,” stressing that the key to her performance will be feeling the lyric and connecting to the audience. In rehearsal, John did note that there are moments where she runs through the note and worked with her to hold on to them longer.

9:35 p.m. – Reba told Taylor that she “added spice” to John’s decision and Gwen called it a perfect song for her voice because of her recognizable tone. John also commented on Taylor’s tone, which he called “soulful and powerful.”

9:40 p.m.Lila Forde went with “Angel from Montgomery,” a song that John thought was “right up her alley.” Lila said that the “community and heart-based” song is the type of music she wants to make. John wanted to “build the drama” by the end of the song because it felt “too subdued” for what he thought she should do.

9:44 p.m. – Niall called it “incredible” and her runs “so flavorable,” adding that she’s one of his favorite artists ever on the show. Gwen liked that she gives off the 70s vibe without feeling like she’s copying it because it feels authentic. Reba agreed that Lila has a “category by yourself” and John added that she makes classic songs sound more modern without losing their original heart.

9:45 p.m. – The last performer was Mac Royals with his version of “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” a song he said started his love with R&B music when he was a teenager. John and Mac worked through when to use ad libs to add to the song and when to stick to the lyric. They also discussed merging gospel with rock & roll energy just like D’Angelo does in the original.

9:54 p.m. – Gwen called Mac a star, noting how perfect his body language and look on stage were. Reba said that Mac has grown “leaps and bounds” in the competition and Niall added that all of his instincts were spot-on and he gave a finale performance. John “put him right up there” with the best in the R&B scene and said that he understands and believes in Mac’s ability to be a star.

9:57 p.m. – With his six artists returning to the stage, John made his decision on which three to take to the live shows and which three would leave the competition at this point. The three artists that John chose to move forward with were Mac, Lila, and Azán.
