The Voice 18 Knockouts Part 2 Pairing Spoilers

The Voice season 18 Knockout Round concludes on Monday April 20. 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 picks which singer will move on to the live shows. Each coach gets one steal, NO saves. Additionally, this week features the FOUR WAY SAVE, outcome to be determined by fan vote! 

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.

Check out songs and match up spoilers for Monday’s (April 20) episode below. 

Team John Legend
