Last night, the top 3 contestants for the sixth season of The Voice duked it out, showcasing their vocal chops in one last effort to snag the coveted prize of a recording contract and the bragging rights of being crowned The Voice. If you missed last night’s performances, they’re all here for you to see with enough time to vote for your favorite if you haven’t done so already.
Each contestant performed three times. One was a fan favorite, one was a coach/contestant collaboration, and the third song was a song picked by the contestant. In addition, all three coaches performed in what is being dubbed the ‘best singing competition in the world’ by the coaches themselves; although they’re perhaps a little biased to be certain.
All that said, here are the performances from last night, albeit they may not appear in the exact order that they originally did during the live airing:
First up is the YouTube singing sensation, Christina Grimmie, who signed up to work with Adam Levine. As previously mentioned, she sang three songs. In her first offering, she reprised her blind audition performance of “Wrecking Ball,” a Miley Cyrus tune:
For her next performance, Christina Grimmie would team up with her coach in a Grimmie/Levine take on Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know,” arguably one of the best covers of the song to date:
In her last song performed before tonight’s crowning event, Grimmie took to Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” describing it as her ‘dream song’ to sing:
Next up, Jake Worthington, the country boy from Texas performed three songs on The Voice stage. His audience favorite was “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” the song that he sang during the blinds which got three chairs to turn. As a reminder, Jake Worthington returned after previously auditioning and being told to come back after he worked on his breath control a little more. Here he is singing America’s pick:
For his next performance, Jake took to the stage with his country version of Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting,” which won over the coaches, especially Shakira, and was met with critical praise:
For his last song before tonight’s crowning moment, Jake teamed up with his coach Blake Shelton to sing a Hank Williams, Jr. classic, “A Country Boy Can Survive,” to which Adam remarked on his vocal ability and admitted his admiration for Jake’s range:
Last, but certainly not least, Josh Kaufman and his coach Usher took to the stage to perform their rendition of the Police song “Every Breath You Take.”
After his collaboration with his coach, the old soul crooner took to the stage to perform America’s pick for him, the song that earned him a second chance when Usher stole him from Team Adam:
Finally, Josh Kaufman sang Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” to close out the show:
These nine final performances offered one last chance for America to cast their vote for their favorite Voice contestant. And just to be fair, here are the two performances offered up by The Voice coaches:
Shakira and Blake Shelton teamed up for their song “Medicine.”
After that performance, Usher and Adam Levine collaborated on a sizzling rendition of D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel).”
Now that you’ve seen all the performances, you still have time to cast your votes for your favorite. Voting is open until noon eastern time today. If you have not voted yet, get moving! You can cast your votes here.
