"The Voice" is now down to the final ten contestants and each got a chance to sing to get one step closer to a recording contract with Universal Music Group.
Here's what happened in Monday's competition:
Sophie Yacoub kicked off the show singing Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and the judges loved her performance. Aguilera told her, "You were on fire. You just made me so proud...You have it all you blew me away."
Dez Deron sang "Feeling Good" by Michael Buble, which all the judges agree was a great song choice for him. Blake Shelton said he "loved" the performance congratulating Aguilera for helping Deron find where he fits in musically.
Terry McDermott sang Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" and received praise from all of the judges. Shelton said he reminds him "of everything I love about rock n' roll."
Cassadee Pope tackled one of her coach's wife's songs "Over You," a song co-written by Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert. Pope's performance prompted Adam Levine to say he hopes to hear more country from her and Shelton said her performance mad him "feel like I was hearing if for the first time."
Melanie Martinez did her take on The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." While Cee Lo Green and Shelton praised her performance, Aguilera said she still needs to "find her comfort zone."
Bryan Keith sang Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind" and all the judges agreed that he really found his own. Levine tells Keith that he has a "certain spirit that...lends itself to that song."
Amanda Brown sang "Stars" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, a song that was not familiar to many. Levine said their song choice was a risk but that she sang it well. "We did our job," he told Brown.
Team Cee Lo
Cody Belew tacked Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" but "with a little Cody twist." Aguilera said "Cody worked it like a true diva."
Nicholas David sang Bill Withers "Lean on Me." Shelton raved about David's performance saying this "might be the best episode of 'The Voice' we've ever had.Watching you perform," he adds, "it's almost like you're watching a musical legend up there."
Trevin Hunte sang "Scream" by Usher a piece that Levine says "wasn't my favorite," but Aguilera disagreed, saying it was her "favorite" performance of his.
