Contestants on NBC’s “The Voice” competed for their spot in the season 20 live shows during the Knockout Rounds. Coaches Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, John Legend, and Blake Shelton all chose contestants to move forward while also sending some performers home.
Kelly Clarkson is often seen crying on the show or at least tearing up from emotional performances. This time around, the music superstar had tears running down her face after talking to a contestant.
Clarkson worked alongside Mega Mentor Snoop Dogg to coach contestants, helping them through to the next round of the competition.
Ana Grace chose to sing “If I Die Young” because when she was 17 she nearly died, she told the coaches.
“Music was the only thing that got me through that,” Ana Grace told the coaches.
That wasn’t the only emotional part of the Knockout, however. Zoe’s story also brought the coaches and mega mentor to tears.

The coaches and mentors told Ana Grace to be as emotional as possible, and Clarkson told her to not hold back about crying on stage because she’s scared she’s going to cry on stage.
“One of the lines that hits me every time is ‘Lord, Make me a rainbow I’ll shine down on my mother’,” she shared while tearing up.
During the actual performance, Grace knocked the high notes and slowed-down version of the song out of the water, leading all of the coaches to being impressed with her voice.
Gihanna Zoe’s performance of “Glitter in the Air” by Pink brought Clarkson to the point of having tears stream down her face while practicing for the Knockout Round, and going in, she knew she would have a hard choice on her hand.
“Y’all didn’t tell me this show would make me cry,” Snoop Dogg told Clarkson.
