The Remaining Five Contestants Performed for the Instant Save & a Spot in the Final Five
Megan Danielle performed an awesome rendition of “Simple Man.” Kelly told her she is “so rock and roll,” and commented on her “pure, raw talent.” She was blown away by the performance and mentioned how special their connection was, and how moving her voice is.
Allegra Miles sang “In My Blood,” and she was incredibly animated while singing (this girl knows how to perform). Nick noted how far she’s come in the competition, and how much she’s improved during every performance. He told her it was an honor to work with her and said she “knocked [her song] out of the park.”
Zan Fiskum chose to sing “Always Remember Us This Way,” and like Allegra, she really immersed herself in the song. Legend was impressed and mentioned Zan’s “angelic” voice; he also praised her ability to master every song she sings. He called the song “lovely, heartfelt” and a “great closing statement.”
Joanna Serenko performed “Unaware,” which suited her soulful voice perfectly. Blake commented on how amazing Joanna’s journey has been, and noted that Joanna always finds a way to come back from an elimination. “I would not be surprised if America saves you again because you’re so amazing,” he told her.
Toneisha Harris went with “Loving You,” and she killed it. All of the coaches were incredibly impressed, and Blake was blown away by the “Mariah Carey-like whistle notes” and the incredible pitches she hit during the song.
