Stephanie Skipper on The Voice Tells Kelly Clarkson "Don't Apologize"

Stephanie Skipper on The Voice Tells Kelly Clarkson

After Amber's performance of Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You", Kelly said, "I am so happy that no one could turn their chair". It ain't country, but Shelton notes, "It wouldn't be possible for me to be happier if you completed Team Blake this season". She gave a country performance, and since Shelton was out of the running, Levine and Clarkson had their chance. Alas, Diaz took her pipes to Team Adam (although we all suspect she really wanted Team Alicia). He's made it through tougher times, of course, but even though he's got some soul and he sprinkles in some interesting hip-hop inspiration, it's not enough to compel the last two coaches to turn for him. However, Blake and Adam did. Kelly barely let the other coaches get a word in, yelling, "I can't hide passion y'all!" So who'd she go with?

Keys, a judge on the show, was pleased by the performance. Levine, Clarkson and Shelton all hit their buttons.

The couples' double date nights aren't always the cleanest, with Blake remembering one particular incident at Kelly's house when he and Gwen had visited.

"It's disrespectful when you don't turn around for someone with that kind of talent", she explained. That stranger is Stephanie Skipper, a 33-year-old woman who grew up in Pennsylvania and now lives in Nashville. After all, "Piece By Piece" is her own song, and it means the world to her. And she picked Blake.

Stephanie ultimately picked Adam because she believed he could help her embrace the feeling of songs rather than technicality.

So who won the singing competition competition??

Blake, however, landed Bransen Ireland, a 27-year-old from Missouri who now resides in Nashville, TN, as well as Jordan Kirkdorffer, a 28-year-old accountant from in who now lives in Nashville TN, for his team. Adam argued Bransen would have less competition in the country genre on his team, but Blake said if he joined "Team Adam", he wouldn't be motivated or pushed to become a better performer and vocalist.

Choir director Gary Edwards also sings pop music, and chose Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" for his blind audition, touching off one of many battles of the evening between Adam and Blake.

Two additional artists also joinedThe Voice cast last night.

"I love you", Clarkson said. She enthralled the audience with her rendition of Ed Sheeran's Make It Rain.
