Coaches Blake Shelton, Ariana Grande, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson have worked with each of their contestants to prepare performances for the semi-finals that they believe will earn their artists enough votes to move on to the following week.
Ariana Grande, the newest coach on the roster, has just one group left in Jim and Sasha Allen, a father-son duo.
John Legend has two artists remaining. Joshua Vacanti and Jershika Maple are both still in the competition. Kelly Clarkson also has two groups left in the competition: Girl Named Tom, a family trio, and Hailey Mia, the youngest artist in the competition.
Blake Shelton, the longest-tenured coach on the show, currently has the leg up with three artists left in the competition. His team still consists of Wendy Moten, Paris Winningham and Lana Scott, the only country artist left in the competition.
Read on to learn about this week’s performances on the show.
The Coaches Hyped Up Their Artists
The new YouTube video posted showed off each of the remaining contestants, starting with Team Blake. The video highlighted Shelton telling Moten that she needs to make it through to the finale and that she’s an incredible artist.
Then, Clarkson talked to Girl Named Tom about how “incredible” their Challenge Week performance was, and Grande told Jim and Sasha Allen that they have proven that they deserve in the competition as vocalists.
