Season 9 Episode 11
"The Knockouts Premiere"
The coaches must make a new round of painful cuts after pairing their singers in do-or-die performance matchups. Rihanna mentors the singers.
With the battles completed and the original group of 48 artists now at 32, the second major round of cuts gets underway in the first knockouts episode. Alongside key advisor Rihanna, Coaches Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams help their artists rehearse before sending them on stage one after the other in a series of elimination matchups. In the knockouts, each coach has one steal to invoke, but still, the artists know their performances will need to be their best. And at the end of a stellar night of performances, only a few singers make it to the next round.
