The fourth and final blind auditions of “The Voice” Season 8 has aired and who were the last batch of competitors to get in this season? Read below for that full recap:

First off was Ashley Morgan who performed Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and had Pharell and Blake’s chairs turned around to face her. It was quite shocking because although the voice was there it was the wrong choice of song and Blake and Pharell fought for her real hard. She ended up choosing Pharell’s team, which by the way is holding stronger than the rest of the coaches’ teams this season… so far.

A 16-year old girl named Koryn Hawthorne walked in on stage and sang “My Kind of Love” and her voice didn’t actually match her age! Her voice was very mature and husky, in a good way, though, and Adam thought she’s 40 years old. Christina loved her voice so much and she got her on her team in the end.

Lexi Davila, 17-years old who sang Selena’s “Dreaming of You” has a nice voice, yet her performance didn’t really have the “wow” factor, but it managed to make Adam and Blake’s chairs turned around. Both coaches know that they can fix her vocal issues and she would be great and in the end she chose Team Adam.

Brenna Yaeger was very nervous when she performed Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” that Adam went on stage with her to give her a supportive hug while Blake watched. In the end, she chose Blake’s team.

A military man, Jeremy Gaynor covered The Carpenters’ “Superstar,” which made four chairs turn. He’s the kind of contestant that America would love. In the end, he chose to be on Christina’s team.

Other contestants that got into the next round were: Briar Jonnee for Team Pharell, Brian Johnson for Team Blake, Corey Kent White joins Team Blake, Jack Gregori for Team Adam, Josh Batson for Team Adam, Katelyn Read for Team Christian, Ameera Delandro for Team Christina and Bay Brooks for Team Blake.
