'The Voice' finalists each perform an original song, all four artists stun the coaches

The Voice's Top 4 eighth-season finalists fought one last time on the stage during Monday night's performance show, but only one of them can be crowned the winner in tonight's finale.

Still in the running to be crowned "The Voice" are Pharrell Williams' team members Koryn Hawthorne and Sawyer Fredericks, Adam Levine's team member Joshua Davis, and Blake Shelton's team member Meghan Linsey.

While the coaches were clearly hoping their artists would gain an advantage going into Tuesday night's finale, all four finalists performed brilliantly and one particular person did not stand out.

In addition to singing a duet with his or her coach, each finalist also performed another cover song as well as an original single. The artists got to sing a brand new song written for them by music industry professionals for the first time ever on The Voice.

Williams wrote Hawthorne's original single "Bright Fire." The famed producer previously co-wrote huge hits like "Happy," "Hollaback Girl," and "I'm a Slave 4 U." Williams said the song was meant for Hawthorne, 17, because it "felt like sunshine."

Levine asked Hawthorne to realize how big of an honor it was to have Williams write her a song of her own, saying he "wants one of those too." Levine added that she performed it with so much joy. Aguilera admitted she appreciates her talent and ability. Williams called her "special."

Hawthorne later sang "This Is A Man's Man's Man's World." Levine said all the coaches were "so unbelievably proud" of her. Shelton noted it was her "best performance yet." Williams said she respectfully controlled the band and the room and she was "born for this."

Linsey wrote her original song with a couple of her friends back in the day. The breakup ballad is called "Change My Mind," and the tune reach iTunes' Top 10.

Levine loved the song and Shelton said the soulful artist "wrote the hell" out of it and it was "so powerful."

Linsey also performed "When A Man Loves A Woman" for her cover song. Williams said Linsey had "rewritten her future." Levine tried to explain that Linsey just pushed herself into an extra seventh gear with that performance, and Shelton admitted that, in his eyes, she delivered the performance of the night -- the one that could possibly change the outcome of the competition. 

Davis wowed with his own original song called "The Workingman's Hymn." The folk song was about finding hope through working hard even when the economy is at its worst.

Levine explained that Davis didn't just write a song -- he wrote a "fantastic" song. Shelton complimented his writing skills and admitted the tune was going to be stuck in his head for a while.

Davis later sang "Hallelujah." Aguilera confessed she was excited to have had the opportunity to watch him grow throughout the competition. Levine was so happy to see him "bubble over with passion and emotion."

Fredericks' idol Ray LaMontagne wrote his original song called "Please." The day after the 16-year-old performed it, the single reached No. 2 on the iTunes chart right under Taylor Swift's newly-released smash "Bad Blood."

Williams said it was a dream come true for his artist and gave a shout-out to LaMontagne for believing in Fredericks. Levine also expressed how amazing it was that LaMontagne got behind the singer.

For Fredericks' cover song, he sang "Old Man." Levine praised the "purity and sanctity" of his personality and artistry, asking him to never lose that. Aguilera was so glad the young artist picked Williams as his coach because he had guided his The Voice journey so beautifully.

During Tuesday night's results show, one of these four artists will win a recording contract with Republic Records and be named "The Voice."
