Devix sang Yellow by Coldplay in the Knockout battle on The Voice
The three-way Knockout battle featured three contestants from the same team, performing a song of their choice, and battling it out for a spot in the Top 16.
Battling it out from Team Camila was Andrew, Steven, and Devix. Andrew's song of choice was not the perfect one, and Camila tried hard to make sure he lengthened his notes and loosened up his body. Meanwhile, she also helped Devix find a way to express himself more and have fun while performing.
For his performance, Devix sang his rendition of Yellow by Coldplay. Although the song is pretty slow, Devix shook it up a bit and added his own twist to it, making it even more interesting. He brought the perfect emotion to the song. The coaches were all impressed by his performance.
Andrew performed his version of Everybody Hurts by R.E.M. Steven performed his rendition of It Will Rain by Bruno Mars. After their performance, John Legend called Andrew "unpredictable," and claimed that Devix had one of the coolest tones. Although Camila didn't like Andrew's choice of song, she appreciated that he took her suggestions and worked on them.
The Voice coach also added that Steven's personality had blossomed. Gwen Stefani told Andrew that he had a beautiful tone. But ultimately, the decision was left in Camila's hands. After much deliberation, she decided to go with Devix and chose him as the winner of the Knockouts. Sadly, Andrew and Steven's time in the competition came to an end.
The Voice airs every Monday and Tuesday night at 8 pm ET on NBC.
