My vote, which matters least of all, goes to Cody. Adam says Cody is shining through as a unique artist and won it; Blake would also give it to Cody. Christina "still really appreciated" Avery's effort. Cee Lo reminds Avery that this is a singing competition, then chooses Cody. Avery realizes that he may have messed up, but thanks Cee Lo for being more than a coach. Cee Lo tells Avery to call him, and I hope they have a way of doing that.
The second Team Cee Lo pairing is Mackenzie Bourg versus Daniel Rosa. Daniel Rosa looks immediately intimidated, or maybe that's just a default reaction. Mackenzie chose "Call Me Maybe" to twist and turn into a dad-pleasing indie cover. Mackenzie is a weirdo, but better the weirdo you know. Daniel Rosa is singing "Back to December" by Taylor Swift to show off his "sweet, sensitive" side. I do not see this going well for sweet, sensitive Daniel.
Mackenzie basically turned "Call Me Maybe" into a young, John Mayer song. It is, quite frankly, adorable. It must be cold there in Mackenzie's shadow, Daniel. Daniel's performance is nervous and strained and just not as good. Adam compliments Daniel's new confidence and "would definitely choose you, Daniel." But Adam's thoughts don't matter at all. Blake would choose Mackenzie, and Christina would, too. They're not in the business of pandering tonight, or they're just too unaware to try.
Cee Lo compliments Mackenzie and tells Daniel that he knows he's better than that performance today. Daniel agrees it wasn't his best. Cee Lo chooses Mackenzie, who is here to win. Daniel tells everyone not to feel sad for him because he had the greatest opportunity.
The next knockout pairing is Terisa Grifin, who broke an ankle and put a sparkly cast on it, and Trevin Hunte, who we love endlessly. Cee Lo stole Terisa from Blake's team because she reminds him of every woman in his family. Terisa chose "Saving All My Love" by Whitney Houston. Trevin chose "Against All Odds" and is overcome with emotion, and lack of confidence. I, too, am overcome with emotion. Whitney, Trevin? It's just too much.
Terisa sings first, and she just nails that Whitney song. There's little else to say about it; she's effortless. Trevin is just captivating, though, singing "Against All Odds." And when he got to the chorus, he just sent shivers down everyone's spine, simultaneously smashing our TV screens if you didn't switch to digital.
