THE STORY SO FAR! Last week, Jonny Gray & Josh Logan could not connect to their audience, and both were sent packing. Also in the bottom three: Kat Robichaud, but the live Twitter save gave her another round. Will her fans vote to save her tonight?

Before we get to the matter at hand, we have the Top 10 singing "Say It, Just Say It" by the Mowgli's.

First up, AUSTIN JENCKES, the Washington rocker, is out to prove that he's in it to win it. Will he have a breakout moment with "Your Love" by The Outfield? It's a song from the 80s that you always wanted to know the title to. Or at least I did.

THEY SAY: Blake thought it was a breakout performance, saying that it "masters the art of the slow build" and "letting it go when it's time." Christina thought it was a "super great job", especially with the ending. Adam says that his range is "amazing". Cee Lo says that it was effortless.

WE SAY: It's an instantly familiar song, and it's a recognizable sound. It matches Austin to a tee. I only wish he did a little bit more with it.

Hey, what's Usain Bolt doing in the Sprint Skybox?

Next up, it's the youngest JACQUIE LEE, and she's incorporating... yoga... of all things. Well, breath control is important. So is centering. Hopefully she'll remain centered with "Clarity" by Zedd featuring Foxes.

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was emotional. Cee Lo was "awesome' with a small "A". Blake thought it was typical Jacquie after a simple breakdown. Adam thought it was a great job.

WE SAY:  She has some impressive range. I wonder if she realizes that this is not a terribly shouty song She needn't shout, because if she does,... yep, she runs out of fuel.

Now we're going to Team Adam's WILL CHAMPLIN, who gets strength from his family. He will use that with "Love Me Again" by John Newman.

THEY SAY: Adam says that he is a testament to sticking to it. It's in his wheelhouse. Blake thought he was an "accurate" vocalist.

WE SAY: It's a good choice, but Will spends more of his time shouting sharply. He could be in danger if Kat-votes rebound to save her.

CAROLINE PENNELL is up fourth from Team Cee Lo. She says she marries talent with poise. She thinks she connected with "Leavin' on a Jet Plane" by John Denver. She wanted to sing this... turns out that she grew up on this song.

THEY SAY: Cee Lo: "Nice." She is consistent with the quality of character, but it seemed like the song was going to overpower you. Adam thought that Caroline was making a statement about her experience on the show.

WE SAY: She's just so darn cute. She wears that song like a big fuzzy pair of slippers.

COLE VOSBURY, one half of the beards on Blake's team is taking on a rock favorite, "To Be With You" by Mr. Big. He says it's perfect for his voice and that he grew up on it. Let's see how much he grew up on it.

THEY SAY: Blake thought he nailed it. Adam thought it was a smart move.

WE SAY: Perfect song choice.. sung simply. But 90 percent of it was a soundalike.

TESSANNE CHIN is a frontrunner to win so far as I know, but she has yet to have a moment. She's got a voice on her, but she needs a connection. Hopefully she finally gets one with "If I Were Your Woman" by Gladys Knight & the Pips. "This song is kicking my ass," she says, "But I'm going to kick it back."

THEY SAY: Adam says her voice lends credence to the lyrics, solidifying her presence as a contender. Christina wanted to hear her pull back.

WE SAY: It is safe to say she wins? And by that, we mean that chaos theory takes hold next week and she mysteriously disappears?

Ray... meet Ray. RAY BOUDREAUX plays with Ray LaMontaigne. Blake wants to keep him close to who he is as an artist. He's going to go with "You Are The Best Thing".

THEY SAY: Blake loved the chorus and its bendy notes. Christina was thinking that Ray has shown the most growth. Adam thought that he needed to "bust out" more.

WE SAY: This is the kind of music that Ray should be doing, and he does it flawlessly.

Team Adam's JAMES WOLPERT is introducing a classic to a new generation. A song that has been introduced to a new generation at least twice that I'm aware, Eric Carmen's "Without You". That has a note in it that if you mess it up, the world will know.

THEY SAY: Adam thought that he took the song and "turn it into something... intrinsically yours." Christina thought the voice was so clean, though the pitch doesn't line up. Blake gets a death threat from Adam for... something.

WE SAY: ... and he nails it. Right before cracking. At least he puts himself into it. Tonally, though, it's all over the place.

Down to two left. The first of the two, Team Cee Lo's KAT ROBICHAUD. The Twitterverse saved her, but now it's back to Kat being the artist she is (and with that, a song that maybe a few of us know... "We Belong" by Pat Benatar).

THEY SAY: Cee Lo says that staging, production, and the right song with the right performer is important. Adam thought that there was struggle before this performance.

WE SAY: She's got a good tone, and no doubt she's going to get some recoil from last week's almost-elimination. But how long will it last?

That just leaves MATTHEW SCHULER to take on his romantic side. Christina thinks that he can do anything. Will that include the downward facing dog? Looks like it. Now let's sing some! It's "Beneath Your Beautiful" by Labirinth featuring Emeli Sande to close us out.

THEY SAY: Just cite the crowd. They can't stop yelling.

WE SAY: It was an animated, vibrant performance. If only Matthew's vocal was as vibrant.

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

Results tomorrow. Two people are going home.
