The first performance for the night was by a mixed-race gay couple from New York who sang their rendition of 'Could It Be I’m Falling in Love' by The Spinners. Towards the end of their performance Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Clarkson, all turned their chairs for the duo. When the judges heard the story of how they met and fell in love, it brought Clarkson to tears. After a healthy banter between the judges, the guys ended up choosing Team Kelly.
The 33-year-old single mother and rock singer from Nashville took to the stage and performed her version of “Barracuda” by Heart.

Clarkson did regret not pushing her buzzer. Finally, Natalie joined Team Adam.
Hailing from Arkansas, 31-year-old Hannah shared how she became successful at an early age in her career. She was in a band that got signed by a country record label and ended up touring with the Rascal Flatts and Blake Shelton too.

After her performance of 'Baby, Now That I’ve Found You' by Alison Krauss it was sad to say that none of the judges turned their chair for her.

Hoping to start a bright new future in music he performed his rendition of Ne-Yo's 'So Sick'. Till the very end, none of the judges had turned their chairs for him. But when he hit his final high note, that seemed to have caught Hudson's ear and she hit her buzzer and turned her chair for him. So, Parker joined Team Hudson by default.
Joey who has a screen printing business as a full-time job, claims to be an American pop singer who can sing rock as well. He then sang his version of 'Baba O’Reily' by The Who with his guitar. He got a chair turn from Hudson and Shelton and decided to join Team Hudson.
A 29-year-old family man from Haiti who works in a Russian club singing in six languages performed his rendition of 'Come and Get Your Love' by Redbone.
