At 16, Danielle Bradbery may be the youngest singer left on The Voice, but on Monday Blake Shelton's contestant proved she has what it takes to beat her older competitors.
Shakira called her "a little star," while a gushing Usher used the word "amazeballs" to describe the Texas teen's near-flawless performances, including "Please Remember Me," the 1995 Rodney Crowell tune later recorded by Tim McGraw.
"What you possess is genuine and God-sent," Usher told Bradbery.
With five artists left, Bradbery added to the increasingly tough competition as the artists covered disco (Donna Summer), '70s rock (Loggins & Messina) and even German electronic dance music from the producer Zedd on Monday's show.

Team Blake's dominance on The Voice has finally come to an end.
After three weeks of keeping his team intact as his fellow coaches lost contestants during eliminations, Blake Shelton finally said goodbye to one of his three country artists Tuesday night: Baylor University marching band member Holly Tucker.
Tucker, 19, who received high marks for her sassy rendition of Martina McBride's "When God-Fearing Women Get the Blues" and a heartfelt version of "My Wish" on Monday night, dissolved into tears at the end of the show when the Swon Brothers, also of Team Blake, earned the final spot in the top five.

After Judith Hill left The Voice last week, Sasha Allen of Team Shakira stepped up Monday to claim her spot as the show's reigning powerhouse diva.
In two strong performances that showed off her confidence, Allen, 31, proved she's a contender among the final six artists who sang a song of their choice and one picked by their coach.
Allen, a New Yorker and mother of two, was even compared to Beyoncé's famous alter-ego.
"I guess there is more than one Sasha Fierce," Usher said of Allen, who belted Carrie Underwood's hit "Before He Cheats" – ripping off her long, red dress to reveal black patent thigh-high boots and high-waist shorts.

Adam Levine has already defended himself after saying "I hate this country" during an angry moment Tuesday on The Voice. But should he go further and apologize?
The Maroon 5 singer, 34, was overheard muttering those words after two of his contestants, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, were eliminated.
Facing a backlash, he later posted definitions on Twitter for the words "misunderstand," "lighthearted," "humorless" and "joke."

Adam Levine may or may not have it in for America, but one thing's for sure: He loves his dictionary.
After the Maroon 5 singer was overheard muttering, "I hate this country" when viewers ousted two of his contestants on The Voice Tuesday night, he faced a patriotic backlash, which he answered with the help of Webster's.
Levine – who, by the way, was born and raised in Los Angeles – went to Twitter and cited the definitions for the words "misunderstand," "lighthearted," "humorless" and "joke."

Adam Levine was "little bit p–– off" after having to say goodbye to two team members on The Voice's live results show Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the three other coaches – Usher, Shakira and Blake Shelton – were ecstatic that their artists will stay in the game.
The top eight singers all delivered performances that generated praise from the coaches Monday night, which made it nearly impossible to predict who would be sent home this week.

Is Adam Levine off the market again?
The 34-year-old Maroon 5 frontman and Voice judge, who has split from his model girlfriend Behati Prinsloo, already has his eye on a new girl, 21-year-old model Nina Adgal, a source close to Levine tells PEOPLE.
"It's very casual with Nina, actually," the source says. Despite reports the two are dating, the source says Levine and the Sports Illustrated supermodel aren't taking things full-speed ahead.
"They're just getting to know each other," says the source. "Unlike [Levine's exes] Behati and Anne [Vyalitsyna], where he was serious with them, this just seems to be a new, casual thing."

Monday's two-hour The Voice, featuring the Top 8 live performances, was bookended by a pair of diva-strong performances that showcased both glamour and range.
Judith Hill, a former duet partner of the late Michael Jackson, opened the show with her own disco-inspired version of the electronic pop hit of Will.i.am and Justin Bieber, "#thatPOWER." Wearing a sci-fi Mohawk ponytail and a silver-feathered jacket that looked both rocker and angelic, the always-strong Hill owned the stage with her original vision of the tune.
"I think it was great to see you flip that song," said Shakira.

Oklahoma native Blake Shelton drew on the comfort of his wife Miranda Lambert on The Voice Tuesday night as the couple opened the results show with a touching duet tribute to those affected by Monday's devastating tornadoes.
Shelton, 36, and Lambert, 29, delivered a touching and somber "Over You" as the show called its fans to donate to the Red Cross and its relief efforts for victim families and survivors of the deadly storm, which smashed into Moore, Okla., about 100 miles from the couple's home.
"I think "Over You" was the perfect song for this situation," Shelton said after the show. "The moment was right. I wish things could have been different. I wouldn't have thought about performing a song like that, but it seemed like the right thing to do."
