This week, NBC only aired one episode of 'The Voice' with new performances from contestants, but with 12 incredible performances, that's all we really needed.

Monday night marked the first night of Knockouts, which means the lives are right around the corner! Kelly Clarkson acted as an advisor for all of the artists this week, and I think she's going to make an incredible coach next season. She's just so likable and real and, you know, also an insane singer.

Let's get to the performances! For the first time this season, I am SO BUMMED by the coaches' decision to let somebody go. I can't believe Karli Webster was sent home! As amazing as Janice is, Karli has this crazy, unique voice and range that she fully understands how to use. She's always pitch perfect! Her performance of "Blue Bayou" was one of my favorites of the week and I can't comprehend that none of the other coaches decided to save her. I'm so disappointed!

Other than that moment, I was pretty pleased with the rest of the choices on the show this week. Here are a few of my favorites:
