The Voice recap: Final battle round

The pressure was on for The Voice contestants Monday as the last set of competitors took the stage before the live shows. 

And they didn't disappoint.

Leading off, James Massone and Wade sang "True Colors" for Team Cee Lo. In the end, Massone had the goods (and merchandise as seen by his monogrammed letterman jacket). Massone moves on.

Next, the confident Sharon Matai dueled with country pianist Nicholle Galyon. Adam loved Matai's rendition of "Love song," giving her a thumbs up and a green light to the live shows.

Hailey Steele and Leland Grant, together known as The Line, battled the musical dexterity of Moses Stone. Christina wasn't quite sold on The Line's malleability. Down they went.

Nashville product Karla Davis sang "Easy" with the Robin Thicke-coached Orlando Napier. Davis said she had a "breakthrough" in practice. It showed - point for Davis.

Team Blake followed with youngster Jordan Rager going up against street performer Naia Kete. The pair sang "I'm yours", a tune Blake admitted fit Kete's style. But even in her wheelhouse, Kete impressed, advancing over Rager.

The last battle of the evening featured two powerhouse talents. Justin Hopkins and Tony Vincent sang "Faithfully" and brought their coach Cee Lo to tears several times, both on stage and in practice. All four coaches seemed blown away, making for a tough decision for Cee Lo. Family man Tony Vincent took the "W" and with it the final spot in the competition.

All four teams have filled out their squads of six. Here they are.

Team Adam: Karla Davis, Pip, Mathai, Tony Lucca, Katrina Parker and Kim Yarbrough

Team Blake: Charlotte Sometimes, Erin Willett, Jordis Unga, Naia Kete, Jermaine Paul and RaeLynn

Team Cee Lo: Cheesa, Erin Martin, Jamar Rogers, James Massone, Juliet Simms and Tony Vincent

Team Christina: Sera Hill, Ashley De La Rosa, Lindsey Pavao, Chris Mann, Jesse Campbell and Moses Stone

Tweet of the night: Ooof this is not easy. "Faithfully" means the world to these two family men. So. Many. Tears. Tonight.
