Fellow Voice coaches John Legend, Blake Shelton, and Camila Cabello were extremely impressed by each girl's voice, especially Rowan Grace. Feedback from coaches included Camila Cabello saying how Rowan just made singing look effortless. Camila told Rowan she did not "really have to belt or try hard."

Rowan, you're even better than what I remember you being. Your tone is so interesting and those big notes you were hitting were just stunning. It was like a revelation. It was like...wow. I was like so moved by that.
