“I want to push you and just find more greatness inside of you,” Keys said.
Levine fought hard and said he would continue to fight hard for Collins if he joined his team.
The first artist of the night was Kenny P of Nashville, who sang “Hello It’s Me.” Stefani and Shelton both turned, starting the night out with yet another showdown between the couple.
