It's the final night of the knockouts round on 'The Voice' Season 21 and the performers are bringing in their A-game in order to secure their spot in the live rounds. The first performance of the night was from Team John Legend's Samara Brown and Shadale. Both the ladies are power-house vocalists, so it came as a surprise to see Legend pit them against each other for the knockouts round.

Samara picked Tina Turner's 'Best' as the song of her choice. The young singer managed to impress her mentor and mega-mentor Ed Sheeran during the rehearsals with her impeccable vocals to the peppy number. In sharp contrast to Samara's happy and foot-tapping number, Shadale picked Shontelle's 'Impossible'. Shadale explained in her green room interview the reasoning behind picking such a highly emotional song for her knockouts performance. She revealed that growing up she felt that making her dreams come true felt almost impossible at times as her family was struggling to make ends meet. At one point, their whole family was homeless, and music was the only safety blanket that Shadale had.

With such a powerful backstory attached to her performance, it came as no surprise that Shadale got very emotional during her final performance in the knockouts round. Toward the end of her performance, Shadale broke down and this moved all the coaches- Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton and Legend. Kelly and Ariana too got teary-eyed. Kelly expressed how she received the message Shadale was trying to convince through her song and began crying. 

All the coaches agreed that Shadale's performance was filled with emotions and praised her for giving a peek of her story to the world through her performance. Although Samara gave a pretty impressive performance, Shadale's emotionally charged performance moved the coaches enough to declare her the winner of the knockouts round, which meant that she would be moving to the live round. Unfortunately, Samara's journey on the show came to an end as Blake didn't hit the steal button and save her.

Fans were not disappointed with Legend's decision to save Shadale and praised the young performer for her power-packed performance. A fan tweeted, "Shadale with tone for days, so pure and honest. She laid all her emotions out on the stage, made me feel every word. This is impossible. So much talent. #TheVoice #VoiceKnockouts."

Another fan wrote, "@kellyclarkson #VoiceKnockouts I cried too when Shadale sang." "Baby, Shadale brought all the feels out in that performance. Like, we could actually see the point where she connected and the song took her over. OMG. We’re all crying too, Kelly #TheVoice," expressed a fan.
