'The Voice' season 16 sees Maelyn, Mari, Shawn and Andrew ace the Top 24 Playoffs

On  Monday night when 'The Voice' season 16 aired their latest episode, we got to see the Top 26 contestants battle it out against each other in the Live Playoffs for a chance to gain America's vote and move to the Top 12. 

After last week's 'Live Cross Battles', Blake Shelton was left with eight artistes, John Legend had six, Kelly Clarkson had six and Adam Levine had four. The Top 24 contestants will be cut into a dozen and the comeback stage winner will join them making it the Top 13.

The results will be revealed on Tuesday night when the show returns and the coaches each will also have the chance to save one artiste. But while we wait to see if fan favorites make it to the Top 13, let's take a look at the top performers from Monday night's episode.



Maelyn Jarmon

Team Legend's Maelyn Jarmon performed her version of 'Fallingwater' by Maggie Rogers. Feeling the emotions along with her performance, she sounded flawless from the start. Her vocal range and artistry stood out and Jarmon didn't miss a beat. She is definitely one among the frontrunners this season who has a high chance of making it all the way. We cannot wait to see what Jarmon performs the next time she is on stage. The judges also enjoyed her performance, especially her coach John Legend.


Shawn Sounds 

John Legend seems to have a pretty strong team this season, despite it being his first time judging on the reality TV competition series. The winner this season might be from his team and we would not be surprised, Performing his version of Stevie Wonder's 'Higher Ground', Sounds entertained the coaches and the entire audience. He was nothing less than a combination of flawless and awesome. His showmanship and vocals were impressive throughout. And though he pulled out a few dance steps during his performance, he didn't lose his breath nor lose a beat. 



Performing from Team Adam, Mari sang her version of Beyonce's 'Work It Out'. She not only rocked her vocals but her look was on point as well. It was quite a challenging performance that left everyone cheering for her. She might be the strongest contestant Adam Levine has on his team of just four contestants. She added her own touch to the song making it nearly her own. Apart from her voice, her vocal range and stage presence deserve an A+. 


Andrew Sevener

Andrew Sevener's performance of 'Boots On' by Randy Houser was one among the best country performances this episode. Having Blake Shelton as his coach is definitely showing because we could see how much he had improved from his audition. It was highly crowd-pleasing and energetic which would leave one wanting to hear more of him. If he continues to perform so good, in no time Sevener will be one among the frontrunners with a high chance of winning this season.


'The Voice' season 16 airs every Monday and Tuesday night on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.
