Live Playoffs 2 Recap:
Pharrell Williams kicked off the Live Playoffs 2 by performing his song, "Hunter" before Ryan Sill of Team Gwen took on the song, "I Lived" by OneRepublic and managed to impress the coaches. Sill received praises for his performance despite being pushed out of his comfort zone.
Jean Kelley from Team Pherrell was the next to hit the stage. She sang Brenda Russell's "Piano in the Dark" and managed to impress the coaches but at the same time received negative comments for being "dramatic." Then Elyjuh Rene took on the song, "Latch" by Sam Smith and nailed it. In short, it was a sensational performance with excellent control.
Team Gwen's Bryana Salaz sang the song, "Amnesia" by 5 Seconds of Summer and it was a good performance filled with emotions. Luke Wade from Team Pherrell was the next to take the stage and he sang "Let's Get it On" by Marvin Gaye, getting heaps of prais from coaches for his effortless performance. Then Anita Antoinette of Team Gwen took on the song, "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor, and it was a good rendition.
