The Voice finalists Michelle Chamuel and Sasha Allen brought the house down during Monday night's live performance show.
Last night's broadcast featured each of the fourth-season Top 6 finalists taking the stage and singing two songs for home viewer votes -- one they had selected themselves and the other selected for them by their coach. While all the artists delivered and impressed, Michelle and Sasha noticeably received the loudest and longest applause from the live audience for their second round of performances.
Michelle, who is on Usher's team, rocked her rendition of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble."
"Easily the most enthusiastic response of the night happens for Michelle Chamuel doing Taylor Swift,"The Voice host Carson Daly announced. "Wow, that's loud. That's like TRL Backstreet Boys, N'SYNC live."
"I feel the same way. I would like to speak on behalf of this crazy audience. I don't need to say anything, listen to these guys. It's unbelievable. Stop it already!" coach Adam Levine said while helplessly throwing his hands up in the air.
"I'm so freaking jealous right now, damnit!" fellow coach Blake Shelton joked. "That was just so intense... That was like some headbanging literally -- it sounded really good most importantly."
Usher added that Michelle's performance was "incredible" and America should continue voting for his artist, who keeps showing different sides of herself and allows the audience to emotionally connect with her through music.
"As the room goes crazy, your thoughts on Sasha Allen closing out the night," Carson said to Blake.
The audience kept cheering so loudly, Blake could barely get a word in.
"That was so dramatic and powerful and she took her dress off onstage! That's good stuff," Blake noted.
"I think they liked it," Usher joked. "Man, I guess there's more than one 'Sasha Fierce.' You've got an incredible voice and that was really remarkable."
"I'm so excited. That was hot. That was established," Sasha's coach Shakira exclaimed. "You just worked that stage like a star! That was awesome, you look beautiful, that performance was fierce."
For their first performances of the night, both Michelle and Sasha also received great reviews from the coaches. Michelle sang "Somewhere Only We Know" and Sasha performed "Ain't No Way."
As for the rest of the Top 6 finalists, Adam's artist Amber Carrington took the stage with "I Remember You" and "Crazy."
Blake's Danielle Bradbery sang "A Little Bit Stronger" and "Shake the Sugar Tree."
Holly Tucker, who represents "Team Blake," performed "When God-Fearin' Women Get the Blues" and "My Wish."
The Swon Brothers sang "Okie from Muskogee" and "Wagon Wheel." They are also on Blake's team.
Tuesday night's live one-hour results show will feature the elimination of one contestant. The artist who received the fewest votes following last night's show will be forced to go home no matter which coach's team he or she is on.
The remaining five finalists will advance to next week's semifinals performance show.
