DARREN Percival well and truly came into his own on The Voice last night.
It was a baptism of love as the Coolum singer brought the coaches to their feet with his soulful rendition of the Stevie Wonder hit I Believe (When I Fall In Love it will be Forever).
But soon Joel Madden was on his knees, bowing to the most powerful performance of the night.
"I don't want to make you cry man but listen, there is not another voice in Australia like yours brother," Madden said.
"I love hearing you sing man."
The rounds of applause from the studio audience drowned out the coaches as they praised Percival.
"I feel like we all got baptized all of a sudden," Keith Urban said.
"It was like a tent revival in the studio."
His coach described him as being possessed by his talent.
"That is the entity that comes through us on our best nights when we stay out of our way and let it flow through us," Urban said.
Percival easily outshone the other performers as the competition continues to heat up.
After the latest public voting results were revealed, Chris Sebastian and Emma Louise Birdsall were dumped from Team Seal.
Seal's hopes of winning now lie in his two finalists: early favourite Karise Eden and young gospel singer Fatai Veamatahau
Delta Goodrem's two finalists are Rachael Leahcar and her former backing singer Glenn Cunningham.
Russian-born singer Viktoria Bolonina and diva Danni da Ros both said their goodbyes to Goodrem after underwhelming performances last week.
