"The Voice" aired its second live performance show on Monday, with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus watching as the Top 11 took the stage at Universal Studios Hollywood hoping to get one step closer to winning "The Voice" season 13. Only 10 of them will make it through to compete next week on the NBC singing competition, so here are the highlights music fans need to see from Monday's episode:
1) A trip back to the 1980's
Team Blake's Chloe Kohanski continued to reach new heights on Monday when she decided to cover "Total Eclipse of the Heart." The Pat Benatar song is a classic for good reason, as almost everyone knows it, and it's made for big, energetic performances like those needed to win "The Voice." You can watch Kohanski's cover by playing the video above, where she belts out the song while dressed in the perfect 1980's punk-rock outfit. The show hasn't had this much fun since Benatar's "Love Is A Battlefield" was covered back in the first season.
2) Janice Freeman in another prime spot
Team Miley's Janice Freeman once again received one of the best positions in the show on Monday. After closing the last two consecutive "The Voice" episodes, Freeman was selected to go first in the "Live Top 11 Performances" round. Will her performance of "Shine" be enough to win her America's votes? Because it's clear with the amount of exposure she's gotten thus far ithis season that she's meant to be considered a contender. But ultimately, it's the audience and not the show that will decide whether or not she holds the trophy in December.
3) Adam Cunningham's rebound performance?
The artist to keep an eye on Monday was Team Adam's Adam Cunningham. Cunningham escaped by the narrowest of margins last week, having to earn the Twitter Instant Save to stay in "The Voice" season 13. He returned with an energetic cover of "American Girl" but he will have to be very persuasive to survive Tuesday's eliminations. There is overwhelming precedent for the Instant Save winner to be eliminated the following week, which would leave Adam Levine with just one artist remaining this season. Let's hope Cunningham beats the odds.
"The Voice" airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC. Don't forget that you can catch Maroon 5 live at Las Vegas's Mandalay Bay Events Center on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 with tickets on sale now through AXS.
