Brian Johnson is moving on to the Live Playoffs on NBC’s “The Voice.” But, he’s moving on as a member of another team – Team Adam.
Johnson competed against Sarah Potenza in Monday night’s Knockout round. During this round, the competing teammates individually perform, with Potenza choosing Matt McAndrew’s “Wasted Love” and Johnson “Nothing Ever Hurt Like You” by James Madison. The team’s coach – in this case country music star Blake Shelton – selects who will remain on the team and continue to the Live Playoffs.
The other contestant is sent home unless “stolen” by another coach.
Before Johnson’s performance, Blake told him it’s refreshing to hear him sing something fun and up tempo, which Johnson said was different.
“It’s a whole different side of me,” Johnson said. “It’s taking a risk for sure.”
And though Johnson seemed to risk it all Monday night, it wasn’t for nothing.
Coach Adam Levine quickly stole Johnson for his own team – getting the contestant for whom he was the first to press his button during the Blind Auditions.

Johnson and Potenza will join the top 20 “Voice” contestants in the Live Playoffs. These artists will work to secure a spot in going to the Live Performances – an honor reserved for the top 12 contestants – and will move on according to America’s votes.
So folks, get ready to vote for #TeamBrian now a member of #TeamAdam.
