The Voice Monday April 13 Knockout Pairing Spoilers

The Voice season 18 Knockout Round kicks off on Monday. In this round, coaches once again pair up teammates. But this time, each artist performs a solo song they choose, while their competitor watches. After, the coach chooses which singer will move on to the live shows. Each coach gets one steal, NO saves.  Check out songs and match up spoilers for Monday’s (April 13) episode below. 

Legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor will be on hand to help coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas get their teams ready to face off. Also, an artist gets a double steal!

Team Blake Shelton

Blake pairs his two young artists together. James compares Joei favorably to her song choice’s original artist.  “Joei is capable of doing everything Linda Ronstadt did with the song, but also adding modern touches.”

James notes Todd’s “Huge amount of energy” saying that “it suits him” when he turns it loose. Blake says Cam’s got surprising range.

Todd Tilghman – Anymore by Travis Tritt

Team Kelly Clarkson

James says Camm gives off a sense of quiet and peace, it’s coming from the heart. Kelly says there is something inside of Megan that is “so beautifully broken, pure and raw.” James adds that both Camm and Megan are very understated.

Team John Legend

James calls Darious a powerhouse. “His low range doesn’t fade off, he’s just  a very easy, fluid singer,” says James. He’s a fans of Bruno Mars’ Versace on the Floor! John compliments Mike’s “great range.”

“Joanna’s got that cool detachment that Bonnie Raitt has,” says James about Joanna who is covering a song that Bonnie covered by John Prine, who recently passed away from Covid 19. “I know Bonnie would approve,” James says to her after rehearsal. John compliments Zan’s sweet, powerful tone.

Team Nick Jonas

“He’s a prodigy,” says James, referring to young Tate. “He plays by ear. I’m really curious to see where this young guy ends up.”  James compares Roderick to Prince.
