Tonight's episode of The Voice had double the heat as the top 6 contestants performed twice each-- one with a song picked by their coach and the other of their own choosing. And after Christina Aguilera was booted out of the competition when her final singer got voted off last week, the other coaches are also feeling the pressure, trying to get their team members to perform their absolute best so they can escape the same fate. 

But though all of the remaining finalists performed well, there were a few that really stood out to me.

In her first performance, Cassadee Pope took on another country song, Rascal Flatt's "Stand," giving it a pop-rock twist and making it her own. Though it wasn't my absolute favorite of her performances (will she ever beat "Over You?"), her vocals sounded great as usual and she is definitely a frontrunner in the competition. And I'm not the only one who agree. Both her coach Blake Shelton AND Aguilera gave her a standing ovation. And with her own team now out of the game,  Xtina made it very clear she was cheering for Pope, openly singing the contestant's praises. Wow! I have to admit I'm surprised--not because Pope isn't good, but because Aguilera isn't usually so complimentary to anyone.

But Pope wasn't the only one Team Blake member to get high praises from Aguilera. Xtina also showered Terry McDermott with compliments after he sang his pick, "I Want to Know What Love is" in his first performance. And again, I have to agree! McDermott has such raw, natural talent, it's almost hard to believe that he isn't already a huge music star. Looks like Shelton doesn't have to worry about losing his contestants anytime soon!

Trevin Hunte also blew my mind, particularly with his second performance in which he chose Jennifer Hudson's "You're Gonna Love Me." He brought the audience to his feet and literally made Cee Lo Green dance in his chair! And I totally understand why. For the first time, Hunte held absolutely nothing back and just KILLED it.

It's hard to think that tomorrow, two will go home and the show will be down to its final four--especially because at this point, I really have NO idea who will be eliminated. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing whoever is able to advance perform. For now,  it's all in America's hands!
