"The Voice" only had one new episode this week, and the NBC singing competition made it worth it. There were three Steals and one Save on Monday, in the final episode before "The Voice" season 14 live playoffs. Who did coaches Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson keep and who went home just shy of the finish line? Here are the highlights music fans need to see from Monday's episode:
Monday was a hectic night for Kelly, who had to use both her Save and her final Steal in this episode. She utilized the former on Tish Haynes Keys; play the video above to see Tish's performance of "Lady Marmalade" that prompted Kelly to keep her on her team. Team Kelly's Steal went to Team Blake's Dylan Hartigan. Hartigan also lost his battle round, so he's now on his third chance this season. And for those of you keeping score at home, of the eight artists stolen during the battles, only one of them won their knockout and legitimately moved on; everyone else was either eliminated or needed a coach's Steal or Save to stay on the show.
Two more contestants were stolen on Monday, giving them spots in the live shows despite losing their knockout rounds. Sharane Calister moved from Team Alicia to Team Adam, while Gary Edwards moved from Team Adam to Team Blake. Watch Edwards' performance by clicking the link above and see if you think he was worthy of the last Steal in "The Voice" season 14. Both artists only turned two chairs in their blind auditions, but they've developed well since; Monday was the first time both artists have lost this season.
In seven knockout rounds, only three artists were actually eliminated from "The Voice" season 14 on Monday: Team Adam's Dallas Caroline and Jordyn Simone, and Team Kelly's Jorge Eduardo. Eduardo's elimination means that he won't surpass Julio Cesar Castillo from "The Voice" season 3 as the most successful Spanish-singing artist on the show; Castillo made it to the live shows, while Eduardo will not. That's too bad; we'll have to keep waiting to see if a bilingual performer can truly be a contender on the American edition of "The Voice."
