AceShowbiz - The remaining eight contestants of "The Voice" season 13 rocked two performances each, one was by themselves and another was a duet with another contestant, in the semifinals, which aired on Monday, December 11. There was no time for mistake or flat notes as half of them would be sent home on Tuesday night after host %cCarson Daly% announced the results.
First up was Team %cAdam Levine%'s Adam Cunningham. Adam, who was in the bottom for two weeks in a row, performed a powerful and emotional rendition of %cLonestar%'s "I'm Already There". Coach %cBlake Shelton% praised Adam, saying, "It was a great song choice. I am so glad you are choosing your own songs. I can tell from your singing it that that is the kind of lyric that means something to you. Outside of that, you sang the hell out of it."
The first duet was performed by Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake) and Noah Mac (Team %cJennifer Hudson%). The two successfully awed audience and the coaches with their performance of "Wicked Game" by %cChris Isaak%.
Following it up was Davon Fleming, who sang %cJohn Mayer%'s "Gravity". That night's performance marked the first time for the Team Jennifer contestant to sing a song made famous by a male singer. Coach Adam was full of praise, saying, "What?! What?! I have always loved you and thought you had this ability that was unlike any other ability I have ever heard. ... Tonight, you made a beautiful song choice. I think the result is people felt you the way I have been wanting them to."
Team Blake's Red Marlow was up next, singing %cVince Gill%'s "Go Rest High on That Mountain". Miley dubbed him "authentic," adding, "You represented truth. You let us all feel you." Blake said, "Let me tell you something, I don't have to sit here and brag on you to the audience because what is going on in America is every country music fan realizes what you just did for country music. I know Vince Gill is sitting back somewhere with a huge grin on his face."
Davon returned to the stage to deliver a duet with Brooke Simpson (Team %cMiley Cyrus%). The two singers took turns to show off their skills while performing "Earned It" by %cThe Weeknd%. Putting their own twist on the number, they nailed the song almost perfectly.
Next solo performer was Team Blake's Keisha Renee. Keisha opted to sing a classic hit by %cRascal Flatts% titled "What Hurts the Most". Being one of the competition's country powerhouses, it was almost not surprising to see Keisha nailing the song with her flawless vocals. Miley gushed, "This is a song I have heard a thousand times but you did it your way. It is the best way for you. It seemed so original and so your own. I am so proud of how far you have gotten in this competition."
Adam and Red Marlow treated everyone to a country duet performance. Singing "Can't You See" by the %cMarshall Tucker Band%, the pair put on an epic duet by blending their voices together in a spellbinding harmony.
Later, Chloe took the stage to sing "I Want to Know What Love Is" by %cForeigner%. Blake praised his singer and told her that this was "the biggest night you have had on the show so far." He went on saying, "America, listen to me, if you record this show, rewind the performance and tell me that is not the most iconic voice we have ever had on this show."
The final duet of the night was by Team Adam's Addison Agen and Keisha. The pair serenaded everyone with a beautiful rendition of "Strong Enough" by %cSheryl Crow%.
Noah performed next. He sang %cBishop Briggs%' "River", offering a high-energy performance. "Mama Hud is very proud. The way you believe in yourself. You have to believe in yourself to get up there and perform like you do. It didn't feel like a competition; it felt like your show," Jennifer said of his performance.
Addison delivered an incredible performance of "Both Sides Now" by %cJoni Mitchell%. She drew people's attention with her calming voice. Blake said, "I am such a fan of yours. I really appreciate you being the flagship person on this show for teenagers, young women and the singer/songwriter torch you are carrying. You are beyond your years."
Brooke closed the night with her performance of "Faithfully" by %cJourney%. "We almost burnt the place down tonight with Brooke's vocals," Miley said. "If you are not in the finale, I don't know what this show is. If this show is about 'The Voice', your winner is standing right here."
"The Voice" airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 P.M. on NBC.
