"The Voice" 2016 continued Oct. 31 on NBC with the third and final Knockout round episode, featuring face-to-face battles by contestants mentored by super star mentors Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. By the time the dust settled, eight more hopefuls had advanced safely to the live shows, and the "The Voice" season 11 top 20 was formally set. So who earned berths in the live playoffs?

The two Knockout battles contested for Team Blake saw Austin Allsup claim victory over Gabe Broussard, and Dana Harper better Karlee Metzger. Team Adam's Brendan Fletcher claimed the final available berth over Nolan Neal, while Team Alicia's Sa'Rayah earned a spot in "The Voice" 2016 live playoffs over Michael Sanchez.

Team Miley, finally, saw Darby Walker advance over Maye Thomas, Sophia Urista take the win over Josette Diaz, and Aaron Gibson earn the nod over Josh Halverson. But all wasn't lost for Halverson, as Keys used her sole save of the Knockouts to add him to her live show-bound squad.
