Johnny Gates who sang Million Reasons by Lady Gaga. He was sent home. He was thankful for Gwen and appreciated the opportunity. She was sad about letting him go.

Casi Joy Team Blake Shelton sang My Church by Maren Morris. Country v pop. Blake had to pair these two because a) they have powerful voices b) different genres. c) non of above.  Regardless she has the chops to go all the way. Country fans should already be on her team….Download from iTunes
Felicia Temple My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion.  He stole her because she deserved another chance. Mt Everest of song choices….she did it justice. Well done Felicia. Watch it.

No stopping Casi. Felicia went home with her head held high.
