Of course, the KnockOut round gave the Coaches an opportunity to Steal – and this made for joyous viewing!

Then there were the three Saves the Coaches could make in the course of their team’s performances – these are the singers that slapped so hard, their fate was never in question!

#TeamLIRA – Our coach saved Krista Jonas, the PJ Twins and Yahto Kraft. Additionally, she saved Slindo Zondo, Petro de Villiers and Sbu Dludlu.

#TeamRiky – Riky saved Amy Tjasink, Eon le Roux and Joshua Parker. He then saved Morgan Beasley, Aura and Skhumbuzo Ndaba.

#TeamRiana – Coach Riana saved Lelo Ramasimong, Siki Jo-An and Elisha James. Later she saved Ilan van Staden, Vuyisile Mdlophane and Francois Viljoen

#TeamVanCoke – Francois didn’t risk Steals for Tasché Burger, Anslin Gysman and Daniel Jay. He allocated the remaining spaces to Matthew Reid, Chezelle Shahadat and Mia Malherbe.
