Tessanne Chin from Kingston, Jamaica; Grey from Jacksonville, FL and Boston, MA; Nic Hawk from Davenport, IA and Dallas, TX; Shelbie Z. from Japser, AL; Jonny Gray from Austin, TX; Kat Robichaud from Raleigh, NC; Josh Logan from Manchester, NH; and Olivia Henken from Louisville, KY, were declared the winners of their "knockout" rounds.
For the "knockout" round, each artist on every team performed a song individually but was directly compared to one of his or her own teammates, who sang a different song almost immediately afterwards. The contestants, who were able to select their own songs to perform, only learned the opponent their coach opted to paired them against at the last minute.
Chin and Grey represented "Team Adam," Hawk and Shelbie Z. were on "Team Blake," Robichaud and Gray sang on behalf of "Team Cee Lo," and Logan and Henken represented "Team Christina."
Chin knocked out fellow contestant Ashley DuBose, Grey beat James Irwin, Hawk defeated Holly Henry, Shelbie Z. conquered Briana Cuoco, Robichaud outperformed Monika Leigh, Gray beat out Cole Vosbury, Logan knocked out Amber Nicole, and Henken defeated Destinee Quinn.
However, although Vosbury from Shreveport, LA, and Nicole from Houston, TX, lost their respective "knockout" round faceoff, Green chose to "steal" Nicole from Aguilera's team and Shelton decided to "steal" Vosbury from "Team Cee Lo."
In the new twist, each coach is allowed one "steal" during the "knockout" round, mimicking the "steal" feature which was utilized in the "battle" rounds. If an artist loses a faceoff, the three other coaches have an opportunity to save him or her in the competition and add the contestant to their team going into the live shows.
For "Team Adam," Chin sang "What Doesn't Kill You" by Kelly Clarkson against DuBose, who performed "Hey Soul Sister" by Train. Grey sang "Already Gone" by Kelly Clarkson against Irwin's rendition of "Falling to Pieces" by The Script.
For "Team Blake," Hawk performed "Genie in a Bottle" by Aguilera against Henry's "Creep" by Radiohead. Shelbie Z. took the stage with "Last Name" by Carrie Underwood, performing against Cuoco's "Don't Speak" by No Doubt.
On behalf of "Team Cee Lo," Robichaud sang "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette against Leigh's version of "Hit the Road Jack" by Ray Charles. Gray performed "We Can Work It Out" by The Beatles against Vosbury's "Let Her Go" by Passenger.
Representing "Team Christina," Logan performed "Living for the City" by Stevie Wonder against Nicole's performance of "Mamma Knows Best" by Jessie J. Henken took the stage with "You're No Good" by Linda Ronstadt against Quinn's rendition of "See You Again" by Carrie Underwood.
Tonight's The Voice broadcast will pick up right where last night's episode left off, with all the coaches continuing to reduce their teams via separate faceoffs in the conclusion of the "knockout" round. Going into live shows, only 20 artists will remain -- 16 original "knockout" round winners and four stolen contestants. Each team will feature five artists.
