On Monday, Sarah Potenza who sang "Stay With Me" by The Faces, got all the four coaches turn around but he joined Team Blake. Lowell Oakley performed Duke Ellington's "Don't Get Around Anymore" and he chose Pharrell over Adam.

Pharrell, Adam and Christina pushed their buttons for Rob Taylor, who sang "I Want You" by Luke James, but Christina managed to convince him to join her team. Cody Wickline got all four chairs turned with his performance of "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones, and he joined Team Blake. Then Treeva Gibson performed Lana Del Ray's "Young and Beautiful," and she chose Christina over Blake.

Meghan Linsey was the next to hit the stage. She performed Nazareth's "Love Hurts," making Pharrell, Christina and Adam turn their chair. She chose Pharrell as her coach. Joshua Davis made Adam and Blake to push their buttons with his performance of "I Shall Be Released" by Bob Dylan. He joined Team Blake. Sawyer Fredericks was the last contestant to qualify for the next round. He won the hearts of all the coaches with his rendition of sang "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow." He surprised many by opting for Pharrell as his coach.

However, it was an unlucky day for Ivonne Acero, Mason Henderson, and Bryce Sherlow, as they could not make it to the next round despite giving good performances.
