On tonight’s episode of The Voice 2019, the top 8 winners of season 16 sing for America’s votes. Unlike the other judges on the cast, Adam Levine will simply be watching and enjoying the show because he has no more contestants left in the competition. With the season 16 semi-finals kicking off tonight, of course, there will be a new twist. The top 8 will pair up to perform songs of The Beatles in competitive duets. Generally, the competitive duets are restricted to the battle rounds, earlier in the season, but this is a first-time, new addition to the programming.
Ahead of tonight’s semi-finals, the song choices for the individual performances have been revealed by MJs Big Blog, since they are already up on iTunes. Read on below for the performance spoilers.
Rod Stokes from Team Kelly Clarkson: Stokes will perform “Go Rest High on That Mountain” by Vince Gill.
Maelyn Jarmon of Team John Legend: Jarmon is set to sing the song “Stay” by Rihanna.
Shawn Sounds, also from Team John Legend: He will be performing “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway and Leon Russell.
Andrew Sevener from Team Blake Shelton: Sevener is taking the stage to sing “Long Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels.
Carter Lloyd Horne of Team Blake Shelton: He is singing “Take Me To Church” by Hozier.
Dexter Roberts, another Team Blake Shelton contestant: Roberts will deliver a rendition of “Here Without You” by 3 Doors Down.
Gyth Rigdon, yet another artist from Team Blake Shelton: Rigdon will hit the stage to sing “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood.
Kim Cherry of Team Blake Shelton: Cherry is set to execute “Together Again” by Janet Jackson.
Tomorrow night, the top 3 contestants voted through by America will be announced as safe and the bottom two will be eliminated. Then, the middle 3 will have to perform live for the Instant Save, which is real-time voting. Only one of these 3 contestants will move forward to the finale.
Part 1 of the finale will air next week, on May 20, 2019, from 8 – 10 p.m. ET/PT, with the top 4 contestants singing for the win. Part 2 will air the next night, on May 21, 2019, from 9 – 11 p.m. ET/PT and one of the remaining contestants will be named the winner. The odds are definitely in Blake Shelton’s favor since he has 5 out of the top 8 contestants on his team. And, Shelton has no plans of slowing down.
According to Pop Culture, all four of this season’s judges will return for season 17.
