In each Knockout, two artists from one team are selected to face off against each other, but each person is afforded the opportunity to sing a solo rather than a duet like in the previous Battle Round. The winner of each Knockout will move on to the show's Live Playoffs.
The key advisor for this season's Knockout Round is iconic singer Mariah Carey.
The winners of their respective Knockouts on Monday night were Franc West, a 38-year-old from Atlanta, GA; Abby Cates, a 17-year-old from Cincinnati, OH; and Dave Fenley, a 39-year-old from Nashville, TN.
The Knockouts allow each coach one "Steal" as in the prior round, but Adam, Kelly, Blake and Jennifer also have one "Save" to use, which enables a coach to save both people in one Knockout pairing.
But with Steals and Saves in play simultaneously, a saved artist can potentially choose to go with a different coach, leading to even tougher decisions for the coaches and artists.
The stolen artist in last night's show was Kameron Marlowe, a 21-year-old from Kannapolis, NC. However, none of the artists were saved.
The Voice broadcast began with a Knockout on Jennifer's team between Franc West and Tyshawn Colquitt, a 23-year-old from Cincinnati, OH.
Franc performed "Call Out My Name" by The Weeknd, while Tyshawn belted out "Pillowtalk" by Zayn.
Jennifer said Tyshawn's voice has "no end" and he has such a great presence as well as a wide range. Jennifer said Franc's voice, on the other hand, "cuts like a knife" and is so distinctive.
While both men are incredibly talented, Jennifer named Franc the winner of the Knockout.

"If I had a Save, I probably would've saved Tyshawn," Jennifer noted, before Kelly admitted she would have stolen Tyshawn is she had one left.
For "Team Kelly," the next Knockout was between Abby Cates and Claire DeJean, an 18-year-old from Dallas, TX.
Claire performed "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" by Shawn Mendes, and Abby took the stage with "Because Of You" by Kelly Clarkson.
Kelly announced she could only move forward with one of the young girls so they wouldn't split the vote going forward. Based on everything Kelly had seen of the singers up to this point in the competition, Kelly declared Abby had won the Knockout.
Kelly said she went with her gut and Abby might be more ready for this big stage and experience.
Country singers Dave Fenley, a 39-year-old from Nashville, TN, and Kameron Marlowe were up next, representing Blake's team.
Blake called Kameron the "21-year-old version" of Dave, saying he really stepped up to the plate. Meanwhile, Blake gave Dave a pat on the back for performing a classic song so well.
In the end, Blake announced Dave had won the Knockout. However, Kameron's journey on The Voice wasn't over, as Adam chose to steal him due to his range. Adam was also impressed the "country guy" performed a song outside of his comfort zone.
