"The Voice" Finalists to Perform Original Songs and Premiere Original Videos on Tonight's Two-Hour Telecast
The artists will also release original videos for their songs.

[via press release from NBC]


Four Remaining Artists Work Closely With Their Respective Coaches in Hopes of Delivering a Winning Musical Formula

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Dec. 15, 2015 - In a music competition show first, Chris Jamison, Matt McAndrew, Damien and Craig Wayne Boyd will all perform original songs in tonight's two-hour telecast that serves as part one of the two-night finale of season seven of NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice." The artists will also release original videos for their songs.

Coach Adam Levine worked extremely closely with his three remaining artists and personally reviewed and listened to hundreds of songs that he thought would be appropriate for their first single and match the personality of each artist.

"I'm so incredibly proud of my team and how far they have come," Levine said. "Being able to have input to select their original songs this season has been an incredible experience."

Jamison will sing "Velvet," from writers Elof, Kellen Pomeranz and Alex Lacasse and 1916 Management; Matt McAndrew will sing "Wasted Love," from writers Brandon Lowry, Chantal Kreviazuk, Shimon Moore and Mike Fiorentino and 1916 Management; and Damian will perform "Soldier," from writers Johan Carlsson, and Ashton Parson and producer Max Martin.

Craig Wayne Boyd, the sole remaining member of Coach Blake Shelton's team, will perform "My Baby's Got a Smile on Her Face," written by Mark Marchetti and Stephanie Jones. The song was originally written for Shelton, who gave it to Boyd to use for Monday's show.

"I've been carrying 'My Baby's Got a Smile' around with me for several years," Shelton said. "I always knew there was something special about it. It never ceases to amaze me how songs find their home. This thing was meant for Craig Wayne Boyd, no doubt.. It's truly a magical pairing."

Each song will have an accompanying original video as well.

Here are the iTunes and YouTube links for each of the artists' songs:
