This Performance 'Broke' Kelly Clarkson on 'The Voice'

Nashville resident Stephanie Skipper, 33, performed Clarkson's "Piece by Piece", because she shared Kelly's story of her father not being in her life.

Trae Patton/NBCThe Voice kicked off its final week of blind auditions on Monday, with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson putting the finishing touches on their teams.

Kelly Clarkson felt like Pretty Woman the first time she visited Gwen Stefani's Los Angeles house. The star threw out a playful jab at her fellow Voice coach's direction in a new interview, joking that she still can't believe the twosome are a couple.

Then, it's the ladies' turn as Kelly and Alicia pair up for a powerhouse performance of "Feeling Good".

Another noteworthy performance belonged to Tish Haynes Keys, a 37-year-old from St. Louis MO, who belted out "Chain of Fools" by Aretha Franklin. Kelly barely let the other coaches get a word in, yelling, "I can't hide passion y'all!" Kelly Clarkson, number one, is a saint.

But Keys hadn't said her piece yet. Adam has 10 singers in his team so far, which means he has two slots left in his team, while the rest of the coaches can choose only one contestant each on Tuesday. Adam told Gary that his voice transcends all the problems in the world and made him feel like everything was going to be alright. Blake admitted the competition on his team - which already boasts several talented country singers - would be tough, but might also "make you work your butt off".

First up, Adam and Blake give their best impression of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin with a performance of "Fly Me to the Moon".

Choir director Gary Edwards also sings pop music, and chose Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" for his blind audition, touching off one of many battles of the evening between Adam and Blake.

Faith told viewers she started singing when she was just nine years old, at the Stanton Corn Festival.

"Yup, there you go", Clarkson responded, getting up and walking behind her chair in defeat. Alicia turned her chair around for the singer and said there was "unique individuality in her voice", like a mix of Florence Welch and Sia.
