The Voice: Usher Sends an Audience Favorite Home

Originally posted 04/16/2014 06:30AM

All eyes were on Team Usher Tuesday when his five singers stepped up to The Voice mic and delivered gutsy performances that mostly shined, but left the Grammy-winning R&B singer with a tough choice on the final night of the playoffs.

The one contestant who made it easy on him? Bria Kelly, who at just 18 managed to nail the Rolling Stones classic "Wild Horses" with a performance so polished it could rival seasoned singers twice her age.

"I've stolen everyone that you sang against," declared coach Blake Shelton. "Looking back, maybe that's because you made people step up."

It takes a lot of musical skill to draw Usher's envy, but South Carolina artist Delvin Choice did just that Monday as the second night of playoff rounds continued on The Voice.

Singing Al Green's soul classic "Let's Stay Together," Choice showed range and ease as the Team Adam singer effortlessly performed shimmering vocal runs, turning up the heat for his competitors in a major way.

"I am jealous," Usher, himself a master of the falsetto, said of Choice, who auditioned in season 5 but failed to turn any chairs. This time, however, Choice was back with force, creating a vocal moment Monday that Adam Levine dubbed "terrifying."

Blake Shelton typically exudes coolness under pressure. But The Voice coach admitted he wasn't feeling so self-assured Tuesday night as he was forced to send home two singers on the first night of the playoff rounds.

The country star found himself in the hot seat as he had to make the "toughest decision in six seasons" on the show.

Philadelphia college student Audra McLaughlin kicked things off with a powerful version of "A Broken Wing" by Martina McBride.

The final night of the battle rounds concluded Monday on season 6 of The Voice with some artists stepping out of their comfort zones to show off different sides of their vocal personalities.

Florida bartender Jake Barker, 28, showed off a formidable falsetto as he took on Usher's "Climax" in a sexy duet with Georgia's Brittnee Camelle, 23. The singers turned up the heat for Adam Levine, who had stolen both artists from Usher.

"I really didn't expect that from you," Shakira said of Barker's trills and runs.
