"The Voice" threw music fans another curveball on Tuesday. Just one night after making every single contestant perform, the NBC singing competition reverted back to focusing on just two teams. And whereas the "real-time" voting results were revealed at the end of Monday's show, Tuesday's results wouldn't be revealed until Wednesday. Which artists from Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys' teams stole the show anyway? Here are the highlights music fans need to see from Tuesday's episode:
Jackie Foster proved herself to be the powerhouse belter of "The Voice" season 14 with her performance on Tuesday. After her rendition of "Never Tear Us Apart" didn't earn America's votes, she came back with another 80's rock number in "Alone." Most of Jackie's highlights have been big numbers with some kind of rock element to them and this was no exception. She clearly has power, but will that resonate with audiences? She might have to diversify her song choices a bit more to show more sides of her talent. And if she went head-to-head against fellow vocal dominator Mara Justine from "American Idol", who would win? Watch Jackie's performance by playing the video above, and decide if she's got the pipes to make it to the Top 12.
WILKES may not win "The Voice" but if nothing else, he just punched his ticket for Team Gwen. The long-haired rocker gave audiences his best Gwen Stefani when he sung "Don't Speak" for his second round performance. He gave an already somber song an almost creepy, uncomfortable vibe in a good way, really bringing out the pain in the words and unsettling the audience in the process. Hey, if he doesn't make it through eliminations tomorrow, maybe he could join Gwen Stefani's new Las Vegas residency.
Pryor Baird went for performance and entertainment value on Tuesday when he covered "9 to 5." It's not just a song, it's a full-blown musical number and Pryor threw himself into it; watch his rendition by clicking the link above and you'll wind up with a smile on your face. There's one speed bump, though, and that's the fact that this song was covered perfectly on "The Voice" before. Remember Emily Ann Roberts' version that helped launch her to almost winning her season? There will be a natural urge to compare the two, and that may work against him in the end. But give him plenty of points for effort, because this was a heck of a good time at the right time.
