The Voice continued its tenth-season Live Playoffs last night with 12 performances -- six from "Team Adam" and six from "Team Pharrell." Each artist sang a stripped-down solo for home viewer votes.
In addition, each coach was afforded the opportunity to welcome a "comeback artist" back to the show. It could be any artist throughout the competition from any team, even going back to someone eliminated from the "Blind Auditions."
While all the singers were very talented, one artist in particular completely stole the show.
On Adam's team, Shalyah Fearing -- an artist he stole who sang "Listen" by Beyonce -- received the only standing ovation of the night from all four coaches. The audience wouldn't stop applauding as the coaches tried to offer their feedback.
Blake Shelton admitted Shalyah just became the frontrunner of the show, and Christina Aguilera insisted Adam needed her on his team because she has such a dominant authority and presence onstage. Pharrell said he was honored to have been a part of Shalyah's journey, and then Adam explained how the audience believed her, felt she was telling the truth and understood the message she was trying to convey.
The other members of Adam's team are Laith Al-Saadi, Owen Danoff, Caroline Burns and Brian Nhira. His "comeback artist" is Nate Butler.
Laith performed "With a Little Help from My Friends" by Joe Cocker. Adam said he sparked electricity in the room and lit it up in a different way. Adam noted Laith is a cool artist for the show and represents something that goes unappreciated.
Owen took the stage with "Hero" by Family of the Year. Adam explained he made the song his own and it's the mark of a great singer when someone can speak through a song's lyrics, which he definitely did.
Caroline sang "All I Want" by Kodaline. It was fantastic and Adam noted she's on the cusp of an explosive breakthrough moment on the show. He said this performance was just another step in her growth process.
Brian performed "Alive" by Sia and his range was amazing. Adam joked that he'll at least never have to sing a more difficult song in his life and he did an excellent job with it.
Adam's "comeback artist" Nate took the stage with "Sara Smile" by Daryl Hall & John Dates. Adam brought him back because he felt like he had lost someone special and his runs are impressive. Adam loves the subtleties and nuances in his voice.

The artists who performed for "Team Pharrell" were Emily Keener, Moushumi, Lacy Mandigo, Caity Peters, Hannah Huston and finally his "comeback artist" Daniel Passino.
Emily sang "Still Crazy After All These Years" by Paul Simon. Pharrell called her "an anomaly" and he felt like she had transported him into a San Francisco coffee shop with that vocal.
Moushumi performed a new rendition of "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber. While her vocal was pretty mellow and stagnant for the most part, Pharrell insisted singing is exactly what Moushumi needs to be doing. He told her to keep going forward with the same enthusiasm.
Lacy -- who has worked with a total of three coaches now -- took the stage with "Love Is a Battlefield" by Pat Benetar. Pharrell explained the reason for her going "team hopping" is because she was never meant to go home. Pharrell noted that her performance demonstrated that fact.
Caity sang "I'll Be Waiting" by Adele. Pharrell said she set herself free, released her spirit and appeared to have a lot of fun onstage.
Hannah belted out "Ain't No Way" by Aretha Franklin. Pharrell noted she's so colorful when she sings and steals everyone's hearts.
Daniel, the "comeback artist," performed "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars. Pharrell said he could feel the former "Team Christina" member's energy and passion onstage. The coach added that he just wrote his future.
