Damien, Chris Jamison, Matt McAndrew and Craig Wayne Boyd performed live one last time in the hopes of winning The Voice on Monday night’s live final performances episode.

Coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are the only coaches with contestants left in The Voice, leaving coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams with nothing to do but watch. Carson Daly announced at the top of the show that each final contestant would be performing three times: one song their coach picked, one song as a duet with their coaches and one original song (YIKES), written by professional song writers and chosen by their coaches.


For his first performance of the night, Damien covered Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for You.” In rehearsals, Adam encouraged Damien to move around the stage and improve his stage presence beyond his incredible voice, and, following his performance, the judges were nothing but praise.

The next time Damien took the stage, it was alongside coach Adam. The duo took on Elton John’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.”

Damien’s original track, “Soldier,” was, unsurprisingly, an uplifting ballad. The coaches, as always, praised Damien’s vocal ability.

Craig Wayne Boyd

For his original song, Craig Wayne Boyd recorded and performed “My Baby’s Got A Smile on Her Face.” Blake said he’s been wanting to record the song, originally written for him, for years, and was happy to give it to Craig. “That song was meant for you. It found it’s way to you. And I’ve been carrying it around for years, just knowing there was something special about it,” Blake said following Craig’s performance.

Craig joined his country-coach in a duet of “Boots On.”

For his final performance, Craig sang “In Pictures,” a song he dedicated to his father and his son. Craig gave an emotional, toned down performance – only accompanied by a piano and a small string section. Gwen had tears in her eyes by the end of his performance.

Chirs Jamison

For his coach duet, Chris Jamison and Adam sang the falsetto-filled “Lost Without You.” As expected, the screeching from women in the audience was at an all time high.

Adam gave Chris “Velvet” for his original song. The soulful, R&B pop song definitely suited Chris’ voice, and he seemed right at home shaking his hips up on stage. The coaches stood up for Chris after his performance, and Pharrell was particularly enthusiastic about the song. “A star was born on this television show with you…We’ve seen you come up here and do one thing, and shoot for one thing, but then you came up here and sang that Marvin Gaye song and something happened to you…Everyone is watching you change and watching you grow. So congratulations,” Pharrell said.

For his finale song, Chris performed Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River,” which was perfect for him. “Chris, my young Jedi, welcome and congratulations,” Adam said, standing on his chair.

Matt McAndrew

Matt McAndrew’s original song, “Wasted Love,” took Twitter by storm and is currently sitting pretty at number 1 on iTunes. Matt’s original performance earned a standing ovation from the judges, and the crowd, and the song is sure to be a hit. “Matt McAndrew just sang his own song, that was not only his own song, but it was an amazing song. It’s one of the best songs I’ve ever heard in my life,” Adam said, adding that Matt isn’t “even done winning yet.”

Matt then took the stage singing Marron 5’s “Lost Stars” alongside coach (and Marroon 5 frontman) Adam.

Finally, Matt closed the show with a stunning performance of “Over The Rainbow.” Gwen loved the performance, calling it “beautiful,” and Adam looked like he couldn’t be more proud.

The winner of The Voice will be crowned on the final results show airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
