The knockout rounds of the "The Voice" Season 11 (USA) 2016 wrapped up on Monday night with the last 14 contestants taking the stage with the hope of progressing to next week's Live Shows. Only a few of them could advance to the list of top 20 but that's part of the game.
Here is the recap and results of the "The Voice" Season 11 (USA) 2016 Knockouts part 3:
Austin Allsup vs Gabe Broussard of Team Blake: 15-year-old Gabe chose the song It Will Rain by Bruno Mars. It was a decent performance but not good enough at this stage of the competition. The choice of the song did not seem to be right either.
Austin sang Breakdown by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and it was a rocking performance. He made good use of his experience and that worked.
Winner: Austin Allsup
Darby Walker vs Maye Thomas of Team Miley: Darby sang Shake It Out by Florence + The Machine. It wasn't a perfect song choice but she managed to pull it off. Maye Thomas sang Closer by Tegan and Sara. It was a decent performance but not very impressive.
Winner: Darby Walker
Brendan Fletcher vs Nolan Neal of Team Adam: Brendan performed Soulshine by Allman Brothers Band and put up a good show. He can turn out to be a dark horse of the competition.
Nolan took on Love Is Your Name by Steven Tyler but the wrong song choice seemed to have spoiled the game for him. It was a decent performance but not good enough.
Winner: Brendan Fletcher
Michael Sanchez vs Sa'Rayah of Team Alicia: Michael rendered Bill Withers' Just the Two of Us and it was a great performance. His competitor Sa'Rayah put up an equally good show, with Chaka Khan's Ain't Nobody. Both of them deserved to stay in the competition but only one could.
Dana Harper vs Karlee Metzger of Team Blake: Dana performed You Give Me Something by James Morrison. It was a little subdued but flawless act. Karlee took on Kelly Clarkson's Invincible but it was a poor rendition. She could have been more careful in choosing the forceful song.
Winner: Dana Harper
Aaron Gibson vs Josh Halverson of Team Miley: Aaron sang Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett and performed it well. Josh took on Tim McGraw's Whiskey & You, and it was solid rendition too.
Winner: Aaron Gibson
Steal: Alicia stole Josh
Sophia Urista vs Josette Diaz of Team Miley: Sophia Urista sang Ann Peebles' I Can't Stand the Rain while Josette Diaz performed Eternal Flame by the Bangles. This performance wasn't aired. Sophia won the Knockouts.
Winner: Sophia Urista
