Powerful “Get Here” Duet
Cierra Mickens and T.J. Wilkins of Team Usher chose to sing “Get Here.” This performance was more of a duet rather than a battle resulting to Shakira bowing down to them. Both contestants were powerhouses equally matched. There was a connection on the performance that sucked Blake in. Usher picked T.J. Wilkins beccause “it was shocking T.J. made the song his own” with it being a female vocalist song. Shakira was sad to see Cierra go home since she stolen by Usher last week.

Shakira thinks “Tess is a revolution” and blew her away leading her to push the steal button along with Usher and Adam. Usher asked Tess to come back home singing “reunited and it feels so good.” Adam thought it would be smart for Tess to go with him, but she went to Team Shakira.
Christina Grimmie and Sam Behymer Are “Counting Stars”
Adam and Chris gave a huge critique during rehearsals because both ladies were all over the place while taking on the One Republic Hit. Christina and Sam took their advice and had control of the rhythm in the battle. Both contestants have unique sounds to their voice that sounded alike at times during the performance.

Team Shakira Gives A Rock N Roll Moment
Josh Murley and Patrick Thomson both were stolen during the first battle round from Team Adam. They chose to perform “Run To You” by Brian Adams in which is more Josh’s style. Shakira felt the battle was evenly matched. She chose Patrick because she feels she will be able to coach him better.

The guys’ choice of song was “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.” Delvin and Josh delivered a great performance. Usher thought, “vocally this was the performance of the day.” Delvin was Usher and Shakira’s pick based on improvement and shock. Adam was not happy knowing he could “lose a potential winner of this thing.” Adam did go with Delvin as the winner.
