The Voice - Season 14

The Knockout Rounds are back this week on NBC’s The Voice, and much to the delight of the contestants, so is Mega Mentor Taylor Swift.

In the exclusive clip above, the remaining singers share their reactions to meeting the famous singer-songwriter, who first appeared in last Monday’s episode and will wrap up her mentor sessions with Tuesday’s installment.

Rose Short of Team Gwen gushed, “She was looking good, she had that bad suit on. I hugged her, it felt like money. It was just amazing.”

“I’m not one to get star-struck, but there’s famous, and then there’s Taylor Swift famous,” Team Kelly’s Alex Guthrie shared.

Similarly, Kat Hammock and Lauren Hall of Team Blake squealed with delight as they walked into the room, where coach Blake Shelton joked, “I have a feeling that’s not for me. They never react like that when it’s just me.” To that, Swift quipped, “No, it’s your outfit. It’s incredible.”

This week, Swift serves as Mega Mentor once again to all of the coaches’ teams on the final nights of the Knockouts (where two people from each team are singing a song of their choosing to perform against a teammate). The winners of the Knockouts will comprise the Top 20, who all move on to the live shows.

The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Check out the full list of this week’s Knockouts below.
