'The Voice': Final Four Perform

The final four hit the stage to compete for the Season 7 title of "The Voice."

Team Adam Levine's Chris Jamison, Damien and Matt McAndrew, and Team Blake Shelton's Craig Wayne Boyd, each performed a host of songs in the hopes of earning America's vote.

In addition to tackling one popular song and one duet with their coach, this season's competition added in a new facet, where each artist performed an original song, which they recorded videos for as well.

Here's how the evening unfolded…

Damien opened the competition singing Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You," and the TSA worker wowed Blake.

"There's just so much power in every note that you sing," Blake said, as he tried to find words to sum up his feelings about the singer's performance. "I wish I could be critical here, but that was incredible, man. That was so great."

Craig was the first of the performers to tackle an original song. He actually got to perform "My Baby's Got a Smile on Her Face," written by Mark Marchetti and Stephanie Jones. It was a tune originally meant for Blake.

"Welcome to your future," Coach Pharrell commented after Craig's impressive performance.

Blake said he was glad he held back on the song years ago.

"I've been carrying it around for years just knowing there was something special about it and not knowing that this was gonna happen, man. Congratulations," Blake told the performer.

After a duet between Chris and Adam on "Lost Without You," the Robin Thicke song, Matt, also from Team Adam tackled "Wasted Love," written by Brandon Lowry, Chantal Kreviazuk, Shimon Moore and Mike Fiorentino and 1916 Management.

"I completely got lost in that performance," Gwen Stefani said after hearing it.

Adam, though, was floored.

"Matt McAndrew just sang his own song that was not only just his own song, but it was an amazing song. It's one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life," the coach commented.

After Craig's duet with Blake on Randy Houser's "Boots On," Damien and Adam took to the stage with Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me."

Then, it was Chris' turn to perform an original. His was a smooth number called "Velvet" from Elof, Kellen Pomeranz and Alex Lacasse and 1916 Management.

"You have made me so proud," Adam said. "I'm just blown away."

Matt had the honor of dueting with Adam on one of his own numbers – "Lost Stars," from the film, "Begin Again," before Craig took to the stage to tackle "In Pictures," a song from Alabama that resonated with the singer, who is a dad (the song contains lyrics about watching a child grow up through photographs).

"It's such a great, perfect statement for where you're at in your life," Blake commented.

Damien's original song was called "Soldier," and was penned by Johan Carlsson, and Ashton Parson and producer Max Martin. His performance of the emotional number had all four judges on their feet.

"I am so proud. I'm just bursting with pride for all three of these guys because they've listened to me just through and through, you've taken my guidance, but you've still stayed strong to who you are, and look at how unbelievably well you're thriving," Adam said. "This makes me the happiest coach, win or lose, that I could possibly be in the entire world."

It was a big performance by Chris, who took to the stage for the second to last performance of the night singing "Cry Me A River," which Adam said Justin Timberlake actually cleared for Chris to sing.

He was so impressed by his protege's performance of the song that Adam stood on his coach chair and said, "My young Jedi, welcome, and congratulations."

Matt closed out the night with a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," that delighted Gwen.

"You're just so pure and original and there's something so kind of just green about you and you just connect because of your voice and your gift and I just love hearing you grow and be able to show all different sides like that. It was a beautiful performance," she said.

On Tuesday, a winner will be crowned on "The Voice."
