The Knockouts are over on The Voice season 19, and coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson managed to steal four singers. Every year, The Voice has four main phases. First, there are the Blind Auditions, where each potential contestant gets to sing for the coaches and tries to get an invitation to join their teams. The season then moves on to the Battles, where singers battle it out by singing the same song for a chance to move forward in the competition. Finally, right before the live shows start, there’s the Knockout phase of the show.
During the Knockout rounds on The Voice, the singers have two separate and individual performances, but only one of them gets chosen by their coaches. On the other hand, the four coaches are given one “steal” where they can save a losing singer and incorporate them into their teams. This gives them the perfect opportunity to save someone who has plenty of potential but just didn’t beat their Knockout adversary that day. A lot of great singers can lose during the Knockouts, which means that they never make it onto the live shows. The steals are the coaches’ last chance to make sure that these singers will make it to the final phase of the show.
The Knockouts have just been concluded on The Voice season 19, and four very talented singers were “stolen” by another coach. First, Blake Shelton assembled a Knockout battle between Worth The Wait and Ben Allen. Ben lost, but he was then stolen/saved by Gwen Stefani. Then, DeSz and Sid Kingsley tried to knock the other one out, but DeSz was chosen by coach Kelly Clarkson. Both John Legend and Blake Shelton tried to steal Sid for themselves, but the contestant chose to join Blake’s team. The third steal of the Knockout rounds happened when both Carter Rubin and Cholé Hogan absolutely killed their performances, but their coach Gwen Stefani decided to choose Carter to move on. It didn’t take long at all for John Legend to push his button and save Chloé. Last but not least, John Holiday and Cami Clune fought for a Knockout win, and coach John Legend chose John Holiday to move forward. So Kelly Clarkson decided to steal/save Cami Clune.
At this point in the season, four singers who were stolen during the Battle rounds had to compete in a four-way Knockout, and the fans of The Voice were asked to vote for which contestant they’d like to move on to the live shows. The four singers that the fans can vote to save are Team Blake’s Taryn Papa, Team Gwen’s Larriah Jackson, Team Kelly’s Ryan Gallagher, and Team Legend’s Julia Cooper.
This season of The Voice is just getting started, but the fans are looking forward to the live shows. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess as to which singer can go on to win the show.
The Voice season 19 airs Mondays & Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC.
