“Thank you for bringing what you do to the show. You are on a different path than anybody else. I am so impressed,” Shelton said.
Stefani told Vachal that she can really help her in this journey because she believes that there’s a pure artist coming from her heart. Levine also said that Vachal can win the whole thing. He did not press the button because his team was already full.
Williams said that he will be appreciative to have the opportunity to help Vachal in the journey. He also added that he wants to help her explore more. In the end, Vachal chose to be on Team Pharrell.
