Artists from Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's teams stepped up Monday to wow the audience on The Voice's first night of live playoffs.
Two previous standouts – passionate soul singer Damien and charismatic Southern rocker Craig Wayne Boyd – showed again why they're competitors to watch, as the show narrows its field this week from 20 to 12 and viewers can vote for the first time.

It's a good thing that what happens in Nashville doesn't stay in Nashville.

Back in the 1970s, Nashville outlaw David Allan Coe famously said that the "perfect country and western song" had to include five things: Mama, trains, trucks, prison and getting drunk.

The four teams on The Voice were finalized Monday. And thanks to a last-minute save by Blake Shelton, one Southern rocker – looking "hotter than ever" – could make a big splash when the live rounds kick off next week.
Craig Wayne Boyd, the charismatic Mesquite, Texas, native, heeded mentor Taylor Swift's advice to "take us to church," commanding the stage with the Marshall Tucker Band's classic heartbreaker "Can't You See" and earning a standing ovation from Pharrell Williams.

Leave it to coach Pharrell Williams to make a decision that had everyone's jaws on the floor.
The dynamic new coach stunned his fellow coaches – and just about everyone else watching – when he made a surprise choice to close out the second night of The Voice's knockout rounds.
Williams pitted California-based Elyjuh René, 18, against Ricky Manning, a 19-year-old Florida native who now sings in New York City subway stations. The duo received coaching from special advisor Taylor Swift, and initially all signs pointed to Manning for the win.

When Taylor Swift tells you to put down the guitar, you put down the guitar.
Dallas father Taylor Phelan did just that on Monday as season 7's knockout rounds began on The Voice – heeding the pop star's call to ditch his ever-present stage crutch and let his personality shine through.

Gwen Stefani is one sly stealer.
The No Doubt frontwoman was the only Voice coach to have a steal going into the final night of the battle rounds Tuesday – and she used it with aplomb to steal one of two "divas" who performed a commanding rendition of the Christina Aguilera hit "I Turn to You."

He may act like it on The Voice, but Blake Shelton doesn't know it all.
If you had asked him previously what The Doobie Brothers song "Listen to the Music" was about, he would have stated the obvious: it's about listening to the music.
But, through a new collaboration with The Doobie Brothers on their upcoming album Southbound, Shelton reveals he was missing the song's message all along.

Is the biggest talent to emerge on The Voice this season not a contestant, but newbie coach Pharrell Williams?
It sure looked that way Tuesday night, when the "Happy" singer/songwriter showed off his tender side and tactical strategy while playing a key role in all three battles featured on the second night of the battle rounds.
The show kicked off with Team Pharrell, and pitted Alabama college student Jordy Searcy, 20, against musician-turned-Texas-family-man Taylor Phelan, 25, singing the moving hit "Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)." Williams, along with advisor Alicia Keys, focused on coaxing more emotional performances out of the pair.
