AceShowbiz - "The Voice" returned with a brand-new episode after yesterday's recap episode. In the Tuesday, November 21 episode, the show's season 24 officially kicked off the Playoff rounds. Team Niall Horan was the first to hit the stage on the Playoffs Part 1 night.
Before the first performance, host Carson Daly introduced the Super-Save which allowed each coach to choose any artist from any team who was eliminated during Knockouts before. However, their identities would only be revealed later.
Following it up was Claudia B, who sang "Talking to the Moon" by Bruno Mars. John said that Claudia's voice sounded richer. Reba McEntire totally loved it, saying, "You made it your own song…smooth as butter." Niall, meanwhile, noted that he got "goosebumps" over the performance.
Later, Huntley hoped to wow the judges with a performance of "Daylight" by David Kushner. Calling it "amazing," Gwen added that his style and stage presence were "masterful." John also praised Huntley, saying, "You're already a star. The execution is flawless."
Chosen as the first Super-Save Artist, Julia Roome then hit the stage to sing "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper. John loved her ability to be tender and powerful, while Gwen praised the teen singer for her emotional choices. Niall, on the other hand, described Julia's voice as character, control and uniqueness.
Singing "You've Got the Love" by Florence and The Machine was Mara Justine. John thought it was Mara's best performance. Reba insinuated that Mara perfectly delivered her emotions during the performance which she dubbed an "emotional roller coaster." As for Gwen, she called Mara "an amazing star already."
The final singer to showcase her skills was Alexa Wildish, who belted out "Fields of Gold" by Sting. Reba raved about Alexa's enunciation and John loved her uniqueness. Niall, meanwhile, couldn't help but praise Alexa, saying, "You bleed emotion and authenticity. You stand out. This girl is ridiculously talented."
Niall had to pick three artists to be sent to the Live shows, while the others were eliminated. The first singer to advance was Huntley. Nini Iris was named as the second singer joining Huntley in the Live shows. Meanwhile, the last artist to move on was Mara Justine.
