Blake Shelton Cuts Team From Five to Three For Live Rounds – ‘The Voice’ Playoffs Recap [VIDEOS]
Sisaundra continues to blow everyone away. We're all in a Sisaundra state of mind after her amazing performance of Billy Joel's 'New York State of Mind.' She even had her coach Blake in awe, 'you make me have to rethink coaching. It's amazing what you do with a song.' Usher wanted to know if Blake ever tried to sing runs like Sisaundra does, which Adam Levine wanted to hear. 'Where I come from, runs are a bad thing,' Blake replied. With Sisaundra, runs are what will win her the show this season. She's on a level all her own. No one can touch her.

@Sisaundra has the type of voice that I have not heard since Whitney Houston , the market is waiting for this type of singer.

Sisaundra Lewis 'New York State of Mind'
Audra McLaughlin kicked off the playoffs with a voice that seems too big for her little body, performing 'A Broken Wing.' Taking on a Martina McBride song is a tall order, but she delivered. I'd love to see her and Martina team up for a duet later on in the show. Audra is so good, Adam is seething with jealousy 'because I hate Blake so much, it's hard to say positive things to his teammates. You should know I think you're spectacular.'
No one will ever sing "A Broken Wing" better than my girl @martinamcbride I was honored to sing your song on The Voice last night ❤️loveyou

Madilyn Paige, who Blake stole from Team Usher performed 'Clarity.' Although she has a sweet voice, the performance was a little boring.

Ryan Whyte Maloney showed off his killer vocals with Shinedown's 'Second Chance,' but it wasn't enough to send him to the live rounds. It was enough to catch Shinedown's attention.

Cutting two from his team, Blake had a hard time making a decision. 'This moment is the toughest decision I've ever had to make in 6 seasons of this show. My heart is pounding so hard. I hate every second of this. My heart is breaking.' Wisely, Blake kept Sisaundra, Audra and Jake to move on to the live rounds. GO TEAM BLAKE!
But seriously… HOW GOOD IS TEAM BLAKE?! right?? RIGHT? #FinalBattles
