As Gossip Cop reported, the NBC competition started airing its fourth round on Monday. In this phase, the coaches have to narrow their teams of six (five contestants and a “comeback artist”) down to just three for the live shows. The three chosen to represent each team together make up the season’s overall Top 12. Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson’s singers were in the spotlight last night, with Noah Mac’s performance of “In The Air Tonight” being among the standout moments. Notably, the Playoffs aren’t live this time around, but the aspiring stars are still giving it their all in hopes of continuing their journey on the reality show.

That includes Agen, who at 16 years old has become an early favorite. The teen started out on Team Miley, but was stolen by Adam Levine during the Battles. Agen then won her “Knockouts” showdown with a performance of “Beneath Your Beautiful.” Now for the Playoffs, she wasn’t competing against one particular member of Team Adam but all of them, hoping to be one of the three artists Levine would keep on his team and not one of the three artists he eliminated. For her last chance to impress, Agen was to perform Bonnie Raitt’s version of “Angel From Montgomery.”

In rehearsal, Levine, who compared his young artist to Adele, said he wanted to show Agen’s “maturity.” For her part, she felt, “It totally represents the kind of an artist I am.” She was encouraged to stay “grounded” and “focus on your craft” because “you’ve really got it.” That was evident in her big performance, which had both Miley Cyrus and Blake Shelton praising her before she was even finished singing.

Following a standing ovation, Shelton said, “I love Addison… You were born with this understanding of how to convey lyrics. If you don’t move forward to the Lives, I’m going to have somebody cut Adam’s brakes.” Cyrus admitted she was thinking, “Dang, Addison is probably gonna win this. Adam’s probably gonna shove it in my face. But I’ll be happy if you do.” Agen couldn’t help but cry as Levine himself continued the praise, calling her a “unicorn.”

Although the feedback was glowing and she was the last to perform, Agen still had to wait a few minutes to find out her fate. When it came time for Levine’s decision, he named Agen as the first of his three advancing to the Top 12. She was joined by Jon Mero and Adam Cunningham. Eliminated were Emily Luthor, Anthony Alexander and comeback artist Whitney Fenimore. Check out the video below!
