Season 17 of The Voice is going to come down to the very end!
For the first time in the last seven seasons, all four coaches on the NBC singing competition show will have a singer in the finale -- after Tuesday's emotional episode saw the top eight performers cut down to the final four.
Team John Legend's finalist is Katie Kadan, a colorful Chicago songstress with a big voice and an even bigger personality. For Team Kelly Clarkson, it's Jake Hoot, a country crooner from Tennessee, who consistently tops the most-streamed charts with each new performance. Team Blake Shelton will be represented by Ricky Duran, an old-school singer with a soulful voice and some serious guitar skills.
Gwen Stefani was the last coach to secure her place in the finals, as the instant save vote came down to her remaining competitor, Rose Short, Team Kelly's duo Hello Sunday and Team Blake's Kat Hammock. But Rose did what she needed to do, pulling a page from Kelly's American Idol playbook and belting a cover of Aretha Franklin's "Natural Woman" that nearly brought her coach to tears for the second night in a row -- and scored America's vote.

Gwen Stefani Breaks Down in Tears During ‘The Voice’ Semifinals
"I'm gonna embarrass myself by crying on national TV again!" Gwen raved after the performance. "That was magical."
The No Doubt frontwoman also got a little teary-eyed while speaking with ET ahead of the show on Monday, after Blake opened up about how his upcoming duet with her, "Nobody But You," relates to their relationship.
"I don't want to remember what I was like before Gwen, actually," he sweetly said.
"Blake saved my life, everybody knows that," Stefani replied. "Like, we're just having the time of our lives, and we never expected that this late in our lives, so we're just trying to savor every moment together, and just to be back on The Voice as well...working together again has been really fun, and I love being here and I love being with him."
