Twenty acts took the stage during the live playoffs round on Monday, Nov. 7 in hopes to make it into the top 12 on season 11 of NBC’s “The Voice.”

The night was incredibly intense, because viewer votes were counted in real time in order to accommodate the election coverage. Fans used the show’s Twitter page and app to save their favorite two aspiring stars from each team, and coaches handpicked the third.

One contestant who brought his A-game was Team Adam hopeful Josh Gallagher. The 25-year-old Nashville native performed Zac Brown Band’s 2010 hit “Colder Weather” from the famous group’s “You Get What You Give” album.

Josh abandoned his signature ball cap for the performance and sported a buttoned-up shirt with a cool, black vest. Armed with his acoustic guitar, he crooned the emotional lyrics about being separated from his loved one. Josh then ripped his microphone off the stand and commanded the stage to close out the ballad. Needless to say, it made for one powerful finale.

Josh’s strong rendition of the ZBB chart-topper paid off. In fact, he was voted in by fans and will advance to the next round. Along with Josh, fellow Team Adam member Billy Gilman was also a top choice. As for the coach’s pick, Adam Levine saved Brendan Fletcher.

Next week will prove to be another challenging one for the contenders. Luckily, country music superstar Garth Brooks will be on hand to serve as a key adviser. He will help the top 12 get ready for their next round of performances. Be sure to tune into “The Voice” on Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.
