‘The Voice’ Recap: Final Five Tackle Tributes

After Usher kicks off the episode performing his new single 'Twisted,' the contestants duke it out before two more are eliminated Tuesday night.

Tension was high on the set of “The Voice” on Monday night as the final five duked it out to get one step closer to that record deal with Universal Music Group. This week’s semi-final round narrows the competition down to three and will send the two lowest-voted hopefuls home on Tuesday. Like last week, the contestants performed twice, choosing one dedication song and another picked by their trusty judge.

Usher kicked off the top of the broadcast with a funky performance of his latest Pharrell-produced single, “Twisted,” which would have certainly made James Brown proud. But after his sing and dance number, the focus was reverted right back to the contestants.
