Country superstar Reba McEntire serves as mega mentor as the coaches pair two artists to perform individually against each other then select a winner to move on to the playoffs; the pressure is on, as each coach will only have one steal.

Airs April 24 at 8:00pm on NBC

Thoughts on the performances: 

EJ vs Michael - Both pretty good. I preferred Michael (who was giving me some major Clay Aiken vibes) a bit more. Michael won

Jamar vs Magnus - Both pretty good. I preferred Magnus a bit more. Jamar won

Grace vs Neil - Neil sounded more interesting than Grace (who came off as a little pedestrian) so preferred him. Grace won. Neil stolen

Ross vs Jerome - Both good though I preferred Jerome. Ross won. 

Sorelle trio vs Tiana - Both pretty good though I preferred Tiana. Sorelle won

Holly vs Rachel - Both pretty good. I preferred Rachel just a bit more. Holly won. Rachel stolen

I think we're done with Knockouts and are going into the play-offs.  If so, I will be more interested as finally, if someone is eliminated they stay eliminated.  The 'steals' 'saves' 'passthroughs' 'whatevers' just prolong the season.

Rachel Christine (Young alt-pop singer, has a little darkness or mysteriousness to her voice. Stolen from Kelly)

Mary Kate Connor-Playoff Pass (Blake's 35th to 40th winsome, teen, female pop(ish) singer)

Team Chance

Sorella (Disney-esque trio of Influencer Sisters from Ohio. Impressive harmonies)

Jamar Langely (Older, smooth R&B operator. Capable guitar player too)

Ray Uriel (Old, throwback soul soul in a young person's body)
