Also headed to the battle rounds as a member of team Usher are T.J. Wilkins, Tanner James, Tess Boyer, Stevie Jo, Morgan Wallen, Melissa Jiménez, Madilyn Paige, Jake Barker, Brothers Walker, Bria Kelly, and Biff Gore.

Latin sensation Shakira followed suit by completing her team with aspiring country singer Lindsay Bruce, who sang Eli Young Band's "Even if it Breaks Your Heart." The other artists competing as part of Team Shakira are Music Box, Lindsay Pagano, Kristen Merlin, Jeremy Briggs, DeShawn Washington, Emily B., Deja Hall, Ddendyl, Dani Moz, Clarissa Serna, and Cierra Mickens.

Finally, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine finished off the hour-long broadcast by claiming 19-year old soul singer and donut shop worker Caleb Elder, who performed King Floyd's "Groove Me." The other 11 members of Team Adam are Sam Behymer, Patrick Thomson, Kat Perkins, Josh Murley, Josh Kaufman, Joshua Howard, Delvin Choice, Dawn and Hawkes, Christina Grimmie, Cary Laine, and Austin Ellis.
