Live Shows Round of 10
May 20

Last week, the top 12 sang for their lives. Ten of them survived to sing this week, but it's anyone's game as a former coach returns to play mentor on a team. Will this be a game-changer?

We'll start with Adam and his band... singing "Love Somebody", it's MAROON 5!

Now... to business.

Amber Carrington

Judith Hill
Sarah Simmons
Sasha Allen
Kris Thomas
Michelle Chamuel
Josiah Hawley
Danielle Bradbery
The Swon Brothers
Holly Tucker

First of all, a quick thoughts-and-prayers out to Oklahoma in the face of the tragedy that is going on as we type.

For this voting round, if your single is on the iTunes top 10 by the end of the voting window, your votes will be multiplied by 10. This could be the boost that some singers need.

We begin with Texas's Holly Tucker, who went bluesy last week. This week, she returns to her country roots with an old gospel standard... "How Great Thou Art."

THEY SAY: Usher calls it a statement, saying that there is no bad way to perform that song. BUT it was a different shift. Shakira thought it was very controlled. Adam says that a performance like this epitomizes what the show is about. Blake calls the performance strangely a propos and strong.

WE SAY: That is an old song, which is not a bad thing, mind you, especially with Holly's voice, BUT consider the audience for this show is YOUNG. Her fans will get it, the rest of us, not so much.

Adam brings back Hilary Scott to help Judith Hill channel one of her heroes, the late great Michael Jackson with "The Way You Make Me Feel".

THEY SAY: Blake says the performance works. Usher agrees. Adam says that it was a celebration of someone who played a big role in her life.

WE SAY: Judith sings AND swings the heck out of that song. She ran the gamut on tone and emotion during that song. A fitting tribute to a man who helped Judith get to where she was.

Next up, from Oklahoma, The Swon Brothers, as they try and parlay their #4 Country Chart finish into another winning performance with "How Country Feels" by Randy Hauser, trying to channel their inner Beatles and Eagles vibe.

THEY SAY: Shakira is made to feel good. Adam's speechless. Blake is happy for these goofy, crazy, great singers.

WE SAY: Good to see both brothers out in the limelight. I mean, we know Colton is the money face, but Zach can rock with the best of them.

Amber Carrington is going to hit close to home with her next song, Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway". Adam sees Amber as someone who can sing ... almost anything, not just her base of country.

THEY SAY: Blake thought that the song was a good choice. Usher was literally blown away by her voice (there was wind involved). Shakira also agrees with the song choice. Adam says that it was "incredible".

WE SAY: It was a bit pageanty, and there's a little bit of a pitch issue and a breath issue. She sang sharp all song. She makes up for it with a very well-timed ad lib close to the end.

Going into the half with Sasha Allen, who is singing "Next To Me" by Emeli Sande. Her session is different in that she is being mentored not by one, but TWO "Voice" coaches. Filling in for Joel Madden, who's shooting "The Voice Australia", is Cee-Lo Green.

THEY SAY: Adam thought it was "fantastic". Blake agrees, saying it was time for an uptempo song. Usher calls her "versatile". Shakira was gyrating during the performance. That says it all.

WE SAY: Song is current. But it was loud and out of tune. She should've taken it half a step down.

Josiah Hawley is getting his work ethic a workout, continuing the fight with "Clocks" by Coldplay. This is a story song that Chris Martin made his own when he sang it. Hopefully Josiah can do it some justice.

THEY SAY: Shakira thought it was a good job. Adam thought it was a hard song, but it's a good performance overall. Usher says that it's good to take constructive criticism and make yourself better.

WE SAY: If this was "The Guitar", Josiah would've had it in the bag. He didn't really do enough with the song other than sing it to the tune of it being sung.

Danielle Bradbery sold 50,000 singles last week. "Heads Carolina, Tails California" by Jo Dee Messina could put her over the top this week. All she has to do... is focus.

THEY SAY: Usher says she made country cool. Adam's proud of her. Blake thinks that her fans believe in her, not just like her.

WE SAY: Hi, Judith, you have competition at the top. She's got the voice. She's got the fans. She's got amazing support.

Kris Thomas is the only R&B male singer left. Luckily Cee-Lo's there to help Shakira help HIM through "Adorn" by Miguel. Also, he has a bit of experience with breakups so he can draw from that.

THEY SAY: Adam thought it put everyone on Usher's team at a disadvantage AND that he thought a lot. Usher agrees, but says his voice is incredible. Shakira thought that he was "very unique".

WE SAY: Kris was just running the gauntlet on that song. The sexy sultry lows to the high notes that shook the heavens, and everything in between. And he has that vote locked up thanks to Vedo's ouster.

Sarah Simmons once sang in a hard-rock band. During her freshman year. Of high school. She has to control herself when she does the uptempo Jessie J bad-girl anthem, "Mama Knows Best".

THEY SAY: Blake just thought it was "rock" radiating "sexy".  "You are a rocker." Usher: "If you got it, you got it." Adam says "You... are so awesome."

WE SAY: She sheds her Adele image for Janis Joplin. Gutsy move. Could alienate a fanbase, but could pick up some new ones who are tired of hearing the same old thing.

One last performance, and it's from Michelle Chamuel. She could have another pivotal moment with "Just Give Me A Reason" by Pink. It's heavily built on emotion and range. But can it close?

THEY SAY: Adam's a fan, saying that she takes the competition from them. Blake loves how dramatic. Usher: "THAT was the performance of the night."

WE SAY: She really channeled the feeling of that song and turned it into a winner.

So who is getting voted out tomorrow? Stay tuned...
