'The Voice' Playoffs Get Intense as Coaches Make Tough Team Cuts

So much talent!

As The Voice playoffs heat up, the coaches are now forced to cut their teams in half ahead of the live shows.

First up was rookie Jennifer Hudson, tasked with choosing three of her six artists to move on.

Unfortunately, the other three would be sent packing.

With all the performances completed, the former American Idol contestant selected Davon Fleming, Shi'Ann Jones, and Noah Mac as her favorites (and for good reason).

While the former #TeamBlake member was clearly as much of a standout as the 15-year-old pop star, it was Davon who really shined the brightest.

As he was given a Dreamgirls track to perform, something Jennifer knows all too well, it was do-or-die for the 25 year old.

And boy, did he pull it off!

Since Davon, Shi'Ann, and Noah were selected for the live shows, Jennifer was forced to say goodbye to Hannah Mrozak, Lucas Holliday, and Chris Weaver.

After that, it was Blake Shelton's turn to narrow his team down from six to three.

Although each of the performances had unique moments, demonstrating the caliber of talent the country star had to work with, a few showed just a bit me more promise than the others.
