The Voice's Top 13 contestants performed for home viewers votes with the commencement of the live shows during Monday night's Season 15 broadcast on NBC.

The Top 13 performance show featured each remaining contestant taking the stage and performing a song dedicated to someone special in his or her life.

Three artists stood out during the episode and received a standing ovation from all four coaches -- Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, and Blake Shelton.

Those artists were Kirk Jay, a 22-year-old from Bay Minette, AL; Chevel Shepherd, a 16-year-old from Farmington, NM; and Reagan Strange, a 13-year-old from Memphis, TN.

Kirk performed "I'm Already There" on behalf of Blake's team.

Jennifer said she's never "heard a yodel have an anointing" until he sang it and it looked like he could taste his notes.

"I don't care who's team you are on, but boy, you are bad, bad, bad, bad, bad! I am your biggest fan!" Jennifer said.

Blake insisted it wasn't even fair for Kirk to perform that song because it was "incredible."

Chevel on Kelly's team also earned a standing ovation from all of the coaches, who appeared absolutely ecstatic and impressed, for her performance of "Little White Church."

"You are so magnificent!" Kelly told her artist. "You are 16 years old and you just threw down!"

Adam agreed she's super talented and so cute.

And Reagan, who represents Adam's team, performed "You Say."

"Reagan, you epitomize everything this show stands for because of the purity of what you do, and the clarity of how you do it is just astounding. You filled the room with your voice. You are a marvel. You are truly an amazing artist and I love you," Adam told his team member.

The rest of the Top 13 also delivered entertaining and powerful performances.

Chris Kroeze, a 27-year-old from Barron, WI, who represents "Team Blake," took the stage with "Let It Be."  

Adam said he's jealous of Chris' ability to scream with rasp and the performance was "awesome," and Blake noted his performance was a testament to his hard work because he made it his own and it was excellent.

Tyke James, a 17-year-old from Laie, HI, from Adam's team performed "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You."

Kelly gushed about how it was her favorite performance of Tyke's yet and Adam revealed he's so proud of the artist. Adam noted Tyke stripped down a truly amazing song and the outcome of simplifying it was beautiful.

DeAndre Nico, a 22-year-old from Port Arthur, TX, who is on Adam's team, sang "I Can Only Imagine."

Jennifer said he can sing anything and she loved the spirit of the song, and Adam said he could go "on and on" about the artist and what makes him so amazing.

"When you hear DeAndre sing, you know it's him, and to have that undeniable voice... that DeAndre is singing, that is the vehicle you have to drive through your career. You are unique and you have a gift," Adam told his team member.

Kymberli Joye, a 26-year-old from Windsor, CT, who represents Kelly's team, belted out "Diamonds."

"You're the best kind of vocalist in that you sing it different every time," Kelly said. "So it's a show every time, like going to a Broadway show. Every time it's different... It's wonderful every time and you just have this innate way about yourself."

Kennedy Holmes, a 13-year-old from St. Louis, MO, on "Team Jennifer" performed "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Jennifer gushed about how she shined like a star -- the star she was born to be. Jennifer added she's "just beautiful in every way."

Sandyredd, a 36-year-old from Chicago, IL, a member of Jennifer's team, sang "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."

Blake loved seeing SandyRedd's emotional side, and he advised her never to suppress that. Blake said the lower register of her voice is amazing, and then Jennifer complimented her depth and special qualities in her voice.

MaKenzie Thomas, a 20-year-old from Wallingford, KY, who is on Jennifer's team, belted out "I Am Changing."

Jennifer thanks MaKenzie for her beautiful dedication. She said she learns a lot from Makenzie, "whose skill is just bananas" and whose voice is "crystal clear." Jennifer added she can't get enough of hearing her team member's voice.

"Team Kelly" member Sarah Grace, a 15-year-old from Houston, TX, performed "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

Kelly revealed Sarah plays so many instruments and the world doesn't even know how musically talented she really is.

Dave Fenley, a 39-year-old from Nashville, TN, who sings on behalf of Blake's team, took the stage with "Hard to Love."

Adam was so mad that Dave didn't automatically get voted through last week because he's one of the coach's favorites. Adam said America probably just realized the mistake they had made.

And Blake agreed, saying that was an "incredibly important" performance for Dave to have to establish himself as "rock solid" in this competition. Blake sweetly added, "I love the hell out of you."

And Lynnea Moorer, an 18-year-old from Monterey, CA, who is on Kelly's team, impressed with "Wolves."

Jennifer compared Lynnea to Rhianna and said she has a swag about her that she wants to see more of. Kelly called her "the comeback kid that's killing everyone tonight." Kelly explained Lynnea is craving to learn more and she's "so inspiring."
