As America continues to choose their favorites on this season of The Voice, the competition never backs down week after week during the performance rounds.

While coaches Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys both hold a roster of three, Kelly Clarkson and Adam Levine fight on for the chance to take the crown at the end of the road. Every contestant showed their talent equally by giving one performance throughout the night and earning votes for their vocals and charisma.

Team Blake sounded well represented as Kyla Jade stunned everyone with her rendition of “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman. Mirroring her self-journey as well as finally giving her the confidence to succeed in full, she catapulted into the spotlight and made the track into her own masterpiece. Even Shelton gave her the green light of his approval that she needs to find her way into next week’s show.

Pryor Baird continued on his trek for the title by maintaining his soulful country voice all throughout Montgomery Gentry’s “My Town.” His raspiness may have created an alternative sound compared to Troy Gentry’s original vocal, but it didn’t hinder him from feeling the same emotion that “My Town” gives off due to his upbringing in a small town himself. Baird looked quite comfortable behind his guitar yet again, proving that the instrument boosts him up that much further.

Spensha Baker threw viewers for a loop when she crossed over to the pop world with her version of “Red” by Taylor Swift. Although Swift also started in country music before turning into a Top 40 icon, Baker didn’t allow the overwhelming switch to swallow her performance up. Rather she made it truly her own with a fiddle beginning and a slower tempo from the original, allowing for Baker to focus on the notes more than the beat.

Tuesday night will decide the fate of the top 10, and determine who survives through another stiff week of competition.

New episodes of The Voice air Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
