On night one of the Knockouts on The Voice (Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV), we didn’t fall out of love with Coaches Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Jennifer Hudson. We just fell really, really hard in love with adviser Kelly Clarkson. She dances. She sings. She makes everyone feel like they won Season 1 of American Idol.

Clarkson will be joining the singing series as the new Coach during Season 14 of The Voice, but before then we have to crown a Season 13 winner. And before then we have to raise our blood pressure and get stressed out watching more amazing singers go home during the Knockouts.

TEAM BLAKE

Singers: Adam Cunningham vs. Esera Tuaolo

First up is Team Blake with country singer Adam Cunningham and former NFL player Esera Tuaolo. Well, Esera’s mom is sick and now we want Esera to win. Sorry Adam, you’ve got a really cute baby, but sick moms trump babies. Kelly Clarkson was ready with hugs and compliments and is like a living ray of sunshine. For the Knockouts, the two men delivered pitch perfect performances that couldn’t be more different. Being a Coach seems great until performances like these happen.

Winner: Esera (Adam stolen by Team Adam)

TEAM J HUD

Singers: Lucas Holliday vs. Shi’Ann Jones

We’re not saying the performances tonight weren’t incredible, but we are saying we could have watched an entire episode of Kelly Clarkson’s reactions and been just as entertained.

Lucas is three appearances in and everyone is still shocked that he’s basically Frasier. Shi’Ann is three appearances in and everyone is shocked the 15-year-old is shy. That one is much less surprising. Lucas can sing anything and Shi’Ann can hit notes that we didn’t know were real, so yeah, the Knockouts are breaking out hearts.

Winner: Shi’Ann

Singers: Davon Fleming vs. Eric Lyn

One of the most heartwarming parts of The Voice is seeing two singers who are competing against each other and are also totally supportive of one another. Was anyone more excited to watch Eric perform than Davon? We don’t think so. Davon is giving Kelly Clarkson a run for her money as the human version of sunshine.

Winner: Davon

TEAM ADAM

Singers: Addison Agen vs. Dennis Drummond

Dennis played the electric guitar and performed Jimi Hendrix, while Addison reached into our souls with Emelie Sande. The Knockouts are tricky. It’s difficult to tell whether having a song so different from your opponent is good or bad. On the one hand, you stand out, but on the other hand it’s more difficult to compare the two. Another issue with the Knockouts is the singer picking a song that doesn’t show off their voice, which is exactly what our beloved Addison did. When people compare you to Adele, sing some Adele. Everyone loves Adele. Everyone.

Winner: Addison

TEAM MILEY

Singers: Janice Freeman vs. Karli Webster

We really didn’t understand how Miley could pick Karli over Addison during the Battle Rounds, but now we get it. Karli’s performance of “Blue Bayou” was so pretty and calming that it put us to sleep (we mean that as a compliment). Just when we were ready to cast our imaginary vote for Karli, Janice performed Mary J. Blige like she’s buttering toast. It looks that easy to honour the queen of R’nB, or at least it does when you’re Janice. If there was an award for the best performer on The Voice, it would go to Janie Freeman. Kelly Clarkson would be runner up.

Winner: Janice

Singers: Ashland Craft vs. Chloe Kohanski

The only thing better than watching Kelly Clarkson fan girl over all the performers is watching the performers fan girl over Kelly Clarkson.

Although more of this is always welcome.

We can see why Ashland and Chloe’s round was left until the end because, like, damn. Double damn. Not surprisingly, the performance received the only double steal of the night by J Hud and Blake. If you’re Miley, are you realizing you totally screwed up when two Coaches fight for the singer you just cut? Probably.

Winner: Ashland (Chloe stolen by Team Blake)
