First out the box is CAROLINE PENNELL, the infectiously happy 17-year-old who will hope to wake up America by singing "Wake Me Up" by Avicii.

THEY SAY: Cee Lo says she's done exceptionally well. Blake liked to hear something uptempo and energetic, staying in the pocket. Adam thought that there was a purity in what Caroline did.

WE SAY: Yes, the voice is infectious, but there's a bit of pain in this song, and for Caroline, it's out of character. Hope it doesn't cost her in the end, because she's a charm.

Next up is JOSH LOGAN, who got an 11th-hour reprieve thanks to Christina. He will try to parlay that into a winning performance of "Man in the Mirror" by the late great Michael Jackson (note: it's the James Morrison cover).

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was not as technical, and that it was pulling back the reins. Adam says that the cameras got you. Cee Lo says it was "pretty damn good". Blake thought that Josh let the song shine.

WE SAY: IT SOUNDS LIKE JAMES MORRISON. Which isn't bad, really, but you need to sound like Josh Logan.

... What the hell is Matt Lauer doing up in the Sprint Skybox?

JAMES WOLPERT was the first person saved by America's vote, but Adam thinks he can draw out more energy from our erstwhile week. This week, it's going to be rock for an operative singer. The song: the Killers, "Mr. Brightside."

THEY SAY: Adam thought it was a "blistering performance" that turned him into "a rock star". Christina has seen his growth, but was nervous for him. Cee Lo agrees, saying that James' quirk was written in the song.

WE SAY: .... Pack your bags, you're going home tomorrow between the pitchiness and the uneasy tone.

Up fourth is AUSTIN JENCKES, someone that Blake believes can have a country crossover success. Blake thinks that "It's a Great Day to Be Alive" by Travis Tritt has that crossover appeal. Austin happens to love all types of music, so.. maybe?

THEY SAY: Blake says he's "capable of doing just about anything". Cee Lo liked the twang. Adam liked the money note. Christina says it felt good.

WE SAY: There's absolutely nothing cross-over about this. Not saying that it's bad or bad on him, but if you're looking for someone other than the country voters to chime in, you'd be best served to look elsewhere.

Next up, the youngest artist in the contest, Team Christina's JACQUIE LEE. She has heart and depth way beyond her years. Christina wants to play on that, so she gives her Jack White's "Love Is Blindness."

THEY SAY: Christina felt the energy at the chorus. Adam thought compares her to a "beautiful" "dragon". Cee Lo forgets to think, getting lost in the song.

WE SAY: She likes to add depth and precision to her performances, but needs to be careful, lest she become a pop music automaton. She needs to continue to challenge herself and deliver more than expectations will allow.

RAY BOUDREAUX plus John Legend.... equals a softer side and an audience connection? The song is "All of Me". Will Ray score all of the votes?

THEY SAY: Blake was wrapped up in that. Christina wanted to hear more technical things, saying that pitch-wise, it fell short.

WE SAY: It's been said that the worst thing a new artist can do is release a ballad as their first single. The good news is that this is not his first single. The bad news... it's his last one, and people tend to remember the latest ones, especially when they tend to plod on and on and on. The good news is that he had a genuine emotional connection.

We're heading into hour 2 with KAT ROBICHAUD, and Cee Lo thinks that a softer moment is necessary. She says that people wanted to hear rocking Kat. We're going to get rocking Kat with "Sail" by AWOLNATION.

THEY SAY: Cee Lo got that "Kattitude"... among other things. Blake thought she was "like a lion". Christina: "Kat came to play today."

WE SAY: Crowd surfing... Picking a song that you can relate to that is over the heads of most of the audience... There's a word for that... INDULGENT.

Next up, an Air Force veteran, JONNY GRAY. Cee Lo doesn't want him to be predictable. He wants to challenge him. This challenge... Phil Collins' "Another Day in Paradise".

THEY SAY: Cee Lo can't wait for Jonny to start writing his own music. Adam thought it was very technical.

WE SAY: This could be a defining moment because of Jonny's connection to the song and Jonny's connection to the military, PARTICULARLY on this day. So we could ALMOST give him a bye.

Next, we're going to the islands to hear TESSANNE CHIN. She's got a mellow vibe, but tonight, she's going to kick butt with a showstopper, "My Kind of Love" by Emeli Sande, singing for her husband.

THEY SAY: Adam thought was it was emotional, flawless, and mindblowing. Christina thought that there was a lot of passion and a cool reverb effect.

WE SAY: She has fire. She has passion. But can she translate that into votes? Let's see. If it were up to me, though... Easy in for top 10.

MATTHEW SCHULER is paying tribute to his gospel roots after throwing up a Hail Mary last week. Is he genuine enough for Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah"?

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was "magical". Blake is ready to call Matthew his frontrunner. Adam says that he preserved the legacy of this song.

WE SAY: You couldn't pick a song that was NOT done to death on other shows? Yes he sounds good, but we're ready for something different. If he has anything going for himself, it's that it's a completely different arrangement of the song.

COLE VOSBURY is next to take the stage, beard and all. He could take any kind of song and make it his own... which means, of course, that Blake is going to give him a country song. ... Or not. He's going with "Adorn" by Miguel.

THEY SAY: Blake compares his compositions to "bringing a gun to a knife fight". Cee Lo just likes to remind everyone that he picked him first.

WE SAY: It's distinctly Cole... without losing that groove of the original. This is how you interpret a song on this show.

We're closing up shop today with the last player from Team Adam, WILL CHAMPLIN. He is going to close up with "Demons" by Imagine Dragons.

THEY SAY: Adam says that Will needs to "love music way too much", and that the song was passionate.

WE SAY: Adam's right.

So what do we say?

SAFE: Josh, Austin, Jacquie, Ray, Jonny, Tessanne, Cole, Will
TROUBLE: Caroline, Matthew.
OUT: James, Kat

That's what we think. What do you think? Find out tomorrow... along with a NEW TWIST.
