Live Shows Round of 8
May 27

Last week, another two singers from the new judges went home, leaving one singer for Shakira, one singer for Usher, and one set of males. With eight acts remaining, will the last men standing be lucky enough to survive?

Amber Carrington

Judith Hill
Sarah Simmons
Sasha Allen
Michelle Chamuel
Danielle Bradbery
The Swon Brothers
Holly Tucker

As a reminder, every iTunes download also counts as a vote. 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.

First up, Blake Shelton celebrates Memorial Day with his new single "Boys Round Here". One of the backup singers: season 2's Gwen Sebastian.

Now to compete... We kick it off with the LA soul singer with an unexpected song choice tonight, Judith Hill. She wants to show the world who Judith Hill is... and she's singing "#thatpower" by will.i.am featuring Justin Bieber. It's a very electronic song, but can Judith turn it into something she can work with it?

THEY SAY: Blake has nothing bad to saw about  the song and nothing good to say about his hair.  Udher says she had a great time. Shskira liked seeing something current. Adam can only say, "Power," with her singing her vision.

WE SAY: She looks like a robot chicken on stage. She's got the voice to pull this song off, but it becomes a matter of outsinging in your genre. Does she do it in this moment? Not with THAT song, but let's see what Sasha has in store.

Baylor's own Holly Tucker has a chance to come out of her shell by picking her own song. That would "Done." by The Band Perry. Will she get angry or just sing it as it's written?

CARSON SAYS: "Let's start with Urkel. I mean, Usher!"

USHER SAYS: "I know YOU not talking, Jimmy Neutron!"

THEY SAY: The coaches thought it was impressive, aggressive, and, as Blake said, "You OWN that song."

WE SAY: Someone's got to be the bad guy here... That was all sizzle and no steak. That was a good song choice, but it needed MORE than what Holly gave.

Next up, Judith, Michelle, Sarah, and Sasha team up to take on Rihanna, "Diamonds". They're shiny...

Next up, from Oklahoma, The Swon Brothers, and everyone in their circles are okay from the events of last week. Tonight, they'll push the envelope even further on their country repertoire. They're going to rock tonight with the Eagles' "Seven Bridges Road".

THEY SAY: Usher thinks that what they did left an impact. Shakira thought it was classic. Adam was scared for a moment, but the mistakes were minor and ironed themselves out. Blake says they continue to grow during their time here.

WE SAY: Good choice. This is a song that's built on harmonies. Zach and Colton needed to work together in order to pull it off. They did.

Sasha Allen "will never win this game without you". And as the last woman on Team Shakira, she's going to goof on another coach with "Without You" by David Guetta featuring Usher.

THEY SAY: Adam thought it was bittersweet. Blake thinks she bought Shakira another week. Usher thought it was an incredible job. Shakira thinks she's the whole package.

WE SAY: It had one dynamic level. Loud. We understand you want to win this. We want you to sing WELL, not sing LOUD. World of difference.

Going out of the half with Sarah Simmons, who is singing "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye, a song that's a little artsy for the artsy singer. This is not a delicate song, it's an angry song. She has to sing it as if she's pissed.

THEY SAY: Blake hears three different singers in her voice. Usher thought it was good to show a different texture to her voice. Shakira thought it was interesting to hear this song that's been done a lot on this show in her voice. Adam thought it had range and scope.

WE SAY: It's an angry song. She needed to sing it angry. She didn't until the bridge. It's top 8, go big or go home time, Sarah.

It's time for a little country up in here. Team Blake teams with Team Adam's Amber Carrington for a little Sugarland, "Something More".

Michelle Chamuel wants to bring new life to a record in order to keep Usher around in the contest. She's picked "Grenade" by Bruno Mars. Interesting thing. When she auditioned, she was already working on an album. Fail here... she could be BACK working on that album.

THEY SAY: Shakira thought it was spectacular. Adam thought it was really cool. Blake couldn't believe such a big voice comes out of such a tiny human being. That was her best so far. Usher says she puts in the work and she definitely represent.

WE SAY: Sort of a Bruno Mars meets Bonnie Tyler sort of thing. It's very subdued from the original, and at the same time, it had that range that Michelle's known for. She's got a whole lot of fans. Hope they called their friends.

Danielle Bradbery gets to take us back to a simpler time with "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)" by the Judds.

THEY SAY: Usher calls her "a prodigy". Adam calls her an amazing country star waiting to be born. Blake says anyone with ears can hear that she's amazing.

WE SAY: I'm having a bit of issue with the set designers trying to outdo themselves with the players. Just let them sing, dang it. Anyway, what can we say about Danielle that hasn't been said already. She's great. This performance... was only good.

Playing the closer tonight is a country singer on a rock star's team, Amber Carrington. She's a little iffy about this song, like "Really? She's going to do an Adele song?" But what if I told you that that song was "Skyfall"? Will she push back her country roots in order to deliver a closer, or will her skyfall?

THEY SAY: Blake tells Adam off, saying she's still a country singer no matter what you try and make her song. Usher thought it was incredible. Shakira thought it worked. Adam says there are a lot of countries in the world... and she could be popular in each and every one.

WE SAY: .... Really, you're going to do an Adele song and NOT do it proper justice? I mean, that was a big song, and she doesn't have a big voice.

So let's see... if I was Sarah... and if I was Amber... I would be concerned. But a country singer is going home tomorrow, because we simply have too many of them. We'll see if I'm wrong tomorrow.
