We’ve been loving The Voice’s knockout rounds ever since they were introduced in Season 3. And Season 4’s were the best yet. Not only do the contestants get the chance to pick their own songs, but there’s also the satisfaction of the instant eliminations.

Sure, this spring’s season is over and Danielle Bradbery has been declared the winner, but that won’t stop us from remembering some of the show’s most epic performances during the hiatus.

Here are some of our favorites:

5. Amy Whitcomb vs. Caroline Glaser

It was the battle of the powerhouse rocker and the meek coffeehouse singer, and it turned into a real Cinderella story. Though Amy hit some killer notes and wailed like a pro, Caroline’s soulful sounds won her the spot in the Top 16.


4. Grace Askew vs. The Swon Brothers

We love The Swon Brothers, but Grace’s “bluntry” sound was a force to be reckoned with. This girl had some crazy talent we’d never heard before, and personally we think Blake was wrong to cut her loose.


3. C. Perkins vs. Vedo

This knockout was filled with passion and drive. Vedo’s touching tribute to his recently departed mother had us sobbing and C. Perkins showed the coaches that he had a real love for performing. Vedo moved on, but we won’t soon forget C. and his lack of a first name.


2. Sasha Allen vs. Shawna P.

Shawna P. may have put on her best velor house dress and raspy wail, but she was no match for Sasha Allen’s stunning rendition of “At Last.” The performance was so classic that we could see where Ms. Allen got her “Sasha Fierce” nickname from.


1. Amber Carrington vs. Midas Whale

After upsetting Sasha Allen in the battle rounds, Amber Carrington was on fire in the knockouts. She owned coach favorite duo Midas Whale singing some classic Avril Lavigne. A girl after Cassadee Pope’s heart!
