She said they make her feel comfortable and she loves comfort. Adam feels that the performance was “so Blake” and it was a real country moment that Blake dies for.

He regrettably admits that Danielle is one of the best singers in the competition and one of the ones to beat.

-Garrett Gardner – Song: “Imagine” by John Lennon. Shakira wants him to sing behind a piano and make this a rock anthem.Adam is happy that Adam did well on one of his favorite songs and liked this side of Garrett’s personality. But he also said he hates when anyone but John Lennon sings this song. Blake says Garrett is a good looking dude with a beast of a voice so he is a complete package. Usher is happy Garrett came back again this year. Shakira thanks Garrett. She’s a proud coach. She says he is the epitome of what The Voice and America are about.

-Kris Thomas – Song: ‘If I Was Your Man’ by Bruno Mars
Adam says Kris has a great voice but came across nervous. Blake likes the nervous energy because it shows this means a lot to Kris. Usher says Kris has an incredible voice and did well on a song that requires power and control. Shakira thinks Kris is special and she had goosebumps while he sang.

-Karina Iglesias – Song: Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’
Adam is having regrets saying Karina was not stolen by Shakira but he foolishly gave her away. He thinks she’s very talented and belongs in the competition. Blake said her performance was so strong, he thought the mic would break into a bunch of pieces. He’s also glad that he heard Adam admit that he completely screwed up. I love the banter between Adam and Blake. Shakira loves her sassiness and strength. She is wowed by her lungs.
