The Voice's fourth-season Top 10 finalists took the stage and sang for home viewer votes on Monday, and coaches Usher and Adam Levine disagreed over who delivered the best performance of the night.
During Monday night's live performance show, Usher argued Michelle Chamuel topped her competition while Adam believed Sarah Simmons brought the house down. Fellow coaches Shakira and Blake Shelton agreed that both acts were fantastic.
Sarah from Memphis, TN, performed "Mamma Knows Best" by Jessie J, representing "Team Adam."
"I love hearing Blake wet his pants over you. God Sarah, just when we think we know everything about what it is you do, you totally flip it and you come out here and you give -- and I've said this about other artists on other teams on other nights, so I think I can say this with confidence: This was the performance of the night tonight," Adam explained.
Michelle from Amherst, MA, sang P!nk's "Just Give Me a Reason" on behalf of Usher's team.
"Oh man, I'm saying that that was the performance of the night. I'm going to tell you why -- not because of the placement, but because of the fact that it's just you. You are the theatrics, you are the vocals. You're everything. There's nothing onstage but you," Usher said.
The Voice's remaining eight finalists also performed last night and impressed the coaches.
Holly Tucker sang the hymn "How Great Thou Art," Judith Hill performed "The Way You Make Me Feel" as a tribute to Michael Jackson, The Swon Brothers took the stage with "How Country Feels" by Randy Houser, and Amber Carrington sang a rendition of Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway."
Sasha Allen performed "Next To Me" by Emeli Sande, Josiah Hawley sang "Clocks" by Coldplay, Danielle Bradbery took the stage with Jo Dee Messina's "Heads Carolina, Tails California," and Kris Thomas sang "Adorn" by Miguel.
Tuesday night's live one-hour results show will feature the elimination of two contestants. The two artists who received the fewest votes following Monday night's show will be forced to go home no matter which coach's team they are on.
