The show started with host Carson Daly introducing coaches John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas and Blake Shelton as well as letting fans know that Jake Hoot would be performing alongside Kelly Clarkson.

First up was Team Kelly, which still included Corey Ward, who won the previous Wildcard Instant Save, Gihanna Zoe and Kenzie Wheeler. Kenzie Wheeler got the most votes, meaning that Gihanna and Corey would be competing in the instant save.
Team Legend took the stage next. The contestants remaining on that team were Pia Renee and Victor Solomon. The artist with the most votes for the team was Victor Solomon, meaning that Pia Renee would be the one competing in the Instant Save later on.
Next up, Team Nick took the stage. His contestants, Rachel Mac and Dana Monique, both thanked their coach before learning who would move on. The artist with the most votes was Rachel Mac, meaning Dana Monique would be moving on to the Wildcard Instant Save.
Last up was Team Blake. Cam Anthony got the most votes, and that means that Jordan Matthew Young was set to perform in the Wildcard Instant Save.
The first Instant Save performance was from Pia Renee, who sang “everything I wanted” by Billie Eilish. Then, Team Kelly’s Corey Ward performed “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls.
For Team Nick, Dana Monique performed “Caught Up In the Rapture,” originally by Anita Baker. That was followed up by Jordan Matthew Young’s rendition of “Drift Away,” originally by Uncle Kracker.
