The Voice's Top 11 artists performed for home viewer votes and Rayshun Lamarr went from the bottom two to the top with a killer performance during Monday night's episode of Season 14 on NBC.

The Top 11 artists took the stage one by one and performed songs selected for them by their biggest fans in attempt to impress America as well as the Season 14 coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton.

Last week, Rayshun, a 33-year-old from Fort Washington, MD, landed in the bottom two with D.R. King but survived elimination.

Rayshun clearly wanted to prove he deserves to stay on The Voice, as his Monday-night performance of "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding blew the coaches away.

After Rayshun received a standing ovation, his coach Adam told him, "Last week. This guy was in the bottom two. Tonight, he's No. 1. This was the first time in the history of the show all of the coaches stood up before you even finished the song."

A few other artists delivered stunning performances as well.

Fans asked Sharane Calister, a 24-year-old from Des Moines, IA, to sing "Hero" by Mariah Carey on behalf of Adam's team, and she received a standing ovation from all four coaches.

Alicia called Sharane's level of confidence "profound" and pointed out she's no longer holding back. Adam admitted he was afraid of the song choice at first because it's a huge undertaking but she did a great job with it vocally and tackled it with her own "style, grace and beauty." He added that she "crushed it."

Jackie Foster, a 22-year-old from Boston, MA, sang "Love Rain On Me" by The Who, and she also got all of the coaches up on their feet. Her former coach Adam said he was so happy for her because she was given the best song by her fans, and he called the performance "perfect" and "crazy."

Her current coach Alicia then gushed, "Let the horns blow and the trumpets blare... [America] really understands Jackie -- her power, her sensitivity and the artist that she is."

Kyla Jade, a 33-year-old from Nashville, TN, took the stage with "Sweet Sweet Baby" by Aretha Franklin, and the coaches went crazy over a high note at the end.

Alicia noted Kyla is "phenomenal" and so secure in herself, and Kelly admitted Blake is a very lucky man to have her on his team. Kyla stuck it to the other coaches for not turning their chairs around for her in the Blind Auditions, but Kelly stood up and yelled that she did.

Blake then told his artist that she went from being afraid to step out of the background to being comfortable onstage "to now dominating the show."

The rest of Season 14's artists are Pryor Baird, a 35-year-old from Nashville, TN; Kaleb Lee, a 32-year-old from Ormond Beach, FL; Jackie Verna, a 23-year-old from West Chester, PA; Christiana Danielle, a 22-year-old from Fort Wayne, IN; Brynn Cartelli, a 14-year-old from Longmeadow, MA; Britton Buchanan, an 18-year-old from Sanford, NC; and Spensha Baker, a 25-year-old from Boerne, TX.

Pryor sang "Night Moves" on behalf of Blake's team, and Kelly said he's so great at entertaining and connecting to the audience -- and something like that cannot be taught. Blake appreciated hearing the softer side of Pryor, saying he has so much momentum building on the show.

Kaleb Lee performed "Trouble" by Travis Tritt. Blake said the song was perfect for his voice, and Kelly gushed about how Kaleb sounded sweet and sincere while rocking out at the same time.

Jackie Verna sang "Strawberry Wine" by Deana Carter, and Adam said she becomes more dynamic with a richer tone every single time she takes the stage.

Adam explained that while Jackie may not be the best performer on the show, she is "one of the best singers." He thought her vocals were flawless, simple and pure.

Christiana belted out her own rendition of "Umbrella" by Rihanna, and Alicia gushed about how she's "unbelievably lovable" and engaging. Christiana was told she's such a unique artist because she makes every song her own.

Brynn took the stage with "You and I" by Lady Gaga, and her coach Kelly called her "captivating," "cool" and "infectious." Kelly is so impressed by Brynn's talent given she's only 15-years-old.

Britton performed "Perfect" by Ed Sheehan, and Alicia said it's no joke whenever he sings, as there are no flashy lights or gimmicks -- just his voice, power and emotion.

And Spensha wowed the coaches with a performance of "Better Man" by Little Big Town. Kelly noted she has a beautiful round sound that's so soulful. Blake insisted Spensha is so important to country music right now and she's doing exactly what she's meant to do.
