‘The Voice’ Recap: Adam And Shakira Land Their Triple Threats

Team Adam and Team Shakira give some of the best performances seen on 'The Voice' so far.

The playoffs on “The Voice” grew more and more intense Monday night with every new singer who hit the stage, and coaches Adam Levine and Shakira were left with the daunting task of finalizing their teams of three.

Team Adam and Team Shakira gave some of the best performances seen on the singing competition thus far, leaving their respective coaches admittedly dreading the moment when they’d have to downsize their teams from five to three. Shakira chose to say goodbye to Patrick Thompson and Deja Hall, while Levine sent Jake Barker and Morgan Wallen packing, but both coaches felt confident with their final three singers.

Here’s a closer look at the coaches’ remaining singers:

Shakira And Her Team Of Fierce Females
It didn’t come as a huge surprise when the “She-Wolf” herself found herself leading an all-female team into the live rounds — and it definitely didn’t come as a surprise when those three females were some of the strongest vocalists in the competition.

Although we didn’t get to see much of Kristen Merlin throughout the battle rounds, her heartfelt blind audition was always in the forefront of our minds. So when she hit the stage for one final performance, we knew she wouldn’t disappoint.

The country singer commanded the stage and audience with her rendition of Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs,” and hit her high notes with ease, earning her a standing ovation from both her coach and Levine. Usher praised the singer for the “genuine quality and strength” to her voice and said it’d be a “no-brainer” for Shakira to move Merlin on to the live rounds.
