All eyes were on Grammy and Oscar-winning coach Jennifer Hudson tonight!

The winning Voice UK coach has the final Season 13 steal in her hand.  Who was the last member of Team JHUD? Read on to find out!

Jennifer decided to pair two of her powerful singers, Chris Weaver and Katrina Rose, together. When Chris sang “I’ve Put a Spell on You,” it was so hard for me to divorce myself from Season 10’s Joe Maye, who stole the Blind Auditions when he sang this track solo and with his then coach Christina Aguilera!  That being said, Chris delivered another spectacular performance. Meanwhile, Katrina Rose rocked out to The Cranberries’ “Zombie, ” and I loved her seductive rock voice that soared throughout the performance.  Miley was proud of Katrina’s performance, while Adam compared them to both a laser beam and a flamethrower. Jennifer was torn but decided to advance her four-chair turn (Chris) to the Voice Playoffs.

Blake paired his country singers, Red Marlow and Megan Rose, together to determine which lane of country music he will be focusing on during the remainder of the season. Megan sang Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break,” while the former construction worker decided to sing Craig Campbell’s “Outskirts of Heaven.” Kelly admitted during the pre-Knockout performance that tons of her friends would buy Red’s record. During the performance, Megan had some pitch issues that made my ears bleed, and I was not sure if she had breath control problems as well but that was not a good performance. Meanwhile, Red shined with his beautiful cover of “Outskirts of Heaven” that earned him a place on Team Blake’s Playoff team.

The final Knockout Rounds pairing of Season 13 was Team Adam’s Anthony Alexander and Hannah Mrozak. Anthony chose to perform Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” and both Adam and Kelly wanted Anthony to sing it in a key higher. Kelly added that Anthony should showcase some vocal runs. Hannah decided to perform “Love on the Brain” for her Knockout performance and Kelly stated that Hannah reminded her of a young Christina. Anthony surprised me and I liked that he showcased his confidence while he performed. Meanwhile, Hannah came out of left field and performed a powerful vocal punch with her performance. While Blake gave the battle to Hannah, Jennifer called the battle a tie! Adam decided to go with Anthony to fill his final spot on his team, but at the last minute Jennifer stole Hannah and completed her team!

Next week, the Season 13 Playoffs begin!
