OK fans of “The Voice” – you got this one right.

Because when asked to suggest songs for “Team Blake’s” artists to sing during this week’s live shows, you could have gone with any country song out there. But you decided to go retro and inspiring.

And we absolutely loved it.

On the Nov. 11 episode of “The Voice,” “Team Blake” contestants Barrett Baber, Emily Ann Roberts, Ivonne Acero, Morgan Frazier, Nadjah Nicole and Zach Seabaugh performed a rousing rendition of Rascal Flatts’ 2007 No.1 hit “Stand.”

It was pretty much perfect.

The only bummer is that afterwards, Shelton had a decision to make.

His cozy team of six had to go down to three. Baber and Seabaugh were saved via the public decision. But there was still one more to go… and even Shelton knew it wasn’t going to be an easy decision.

“This is the ninth time that Adam [Levine] and I had to do this, and it never gets easier,” Blake told the four women waiting for his decision. “Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason. It could be four votes that separate you. It just sucks. I am sorry you are in this position, but you made it this far because you are that talented.”

Blake ended up saving Roberts to round out his team of three, but fortunately for us, we were treated to this amazing performance before his team was cut in half.
