Of the thousands of singing hopefuls who came out to audition for the show, only eight remain as “The Voice” nears the end of another season with the Semi Finals for season 21.

This week the artists will perform twice – once as a solo artist and again as a duet.  All of the duets come from the 90’s.

Only five of the eight acts will make it to the finals.

Ariana’s only surviving act Jim and Sasha Allen get the night of music kicked off with the Simon and Garfunkel 60’s hit “Mrs. Robinson” from “The Graduate”.   During the performance Sasha runs up to Ariana to grab a guitar.  John loved the performance; adding that they looked very comfortable singing the song.  Kelly thought the switching off of the harmonies was cool.  Ariana again called it her favourite performance. 

Last week’s instant save and Team Legend’s Jershika Maple takes on the legendary Sir Elton John with “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” and brought the coaches to their feet.  Host Carson Daly called it an incredible performance.  Blake said it was a performance that told people saving her was the right choice.  Ariana called it a powerful performance.  John said that everything about the performance said that she is a superstar talent.

In the first duet of the night, Wendy Moten and Paris Winningham take on Eric Clapton’s “If I Could Change the World”. 

Team Blake’s Lana Scott sings the Carrie Underwood song “Something in the Water”.  An excited Blake yells, “that’s what I’m talking about”.  John loved the performance.  Blake noted how consistent Lana has been; adding it was her best performance so far.

Team Kelly’s Hailey Mia sang “Someone You Loved” by Lewis Custodie.  Ariana said Hailey never looked or sounded more beautiful.  Kelly called Hailey’s voice nuts; adding that this is the most important week. 

Lana Scott returns to join Jim and Sasha for “Hold My Hand” by Hootie and the Blowfish.

Team Kelly’s trio Girl Named Tom return to the folk roots when they took on new Kennedy Center Honours Joni Mitchell with “River” and brought the coaches to their feet.  John said that they make beautiful music every week; adding that choosing Joni Mitchell was cool.  Kelly noted that the trio cares about every part of their performance. 

Jershika and Joshua sang “Hand in My Pocket” by Alanis Morrisette. 

Team Blake’s Wendy Moten sang “You’re All I Need to Get By” by Marvin Gaye.   In the rehearsal tape Wendy said that when it is all over she wants a duet with Blake at the Opry.  Blake said that he wanted an album.  Carson noted that nobody is messing around tonight.  Ariana called Wendy insane; adding that she has a gift form God.  Still on his feet, Blake said that Wendy sat on a stool and blew the roof off of the place; adding that it was historical.

Team Kelly’s Girl Named Tom and Hailey Mia join together for “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips. 

Team Blake’s Paris Winningham performs the music of Teddy Pendergrass with “Close the Door”.  In rehearsals Blake noted that Paris is the guy women love and every guy wants to have a beer with.  Paris brought the coaches to their feet with his performance.  Kelly said that it was so good; adding that she didn’t know the song.  A laughing Blake said that Paris did exactly what he needed to do.  Blake said that he is married, but the performance made him feel something; adding that his heart was pounding.

Team Legend’s Joshua Vacanti closes out the show with the Celine Dion song “Ashes”.  Joshua noted that season nine winner Jordan Smith also did the song; adding that he has been following Jordan.  In rehearsals John noted that Joshua has only scratched the surface of what he is capable of doing.  Ariana said that the performance was stunning.  John called Joshua a brilliant vocalist and storyteller.

On Tuesday’s results show, three will go home as the final five are set no matter what team they are on.
