(WBIR - LOS ANGELES) Lee University's Jordan Smith and Knoxville's Emily Ann Roberts both gave memorable performances Monday night that had their coaches on "The Voice" giving impressive feedback. 

Jordan Smith proved to everyone who he is by singing the Jessie J hit, "Who You Are." Immediately after his performance, Smith seemed choked up by the audience response. 

"It just feels good to just say it, it's okay to be who you are, it doesn't matter," Smith told Carson Daly.

"The Voice" coaches had great things to say about Smith's song. Pharrell applauded his attention to detail, calling it remarkable to watch. 

"Yes you're a great singer, yes you sound great, but that intention that you put forth, that you share with the people is huge and is generous of you," Pharrell added. 

Meanwhile, Jordan's coach gave him the highest praise. Adam Levine revealed that Jordan has an insecurity about his performance ability, but Adam described him as one of the best performers he knows. 

"You do the impossible, which is sing like you do but also do it with this conviction that keeps everyone completely in it and mesmerized and with you every second of the way. That's all that matters when you're performing," Levine said.

Emily Ann followed Jordan's performance and also received seriously impressive praise for her bluegrass version of The Judds hit "Why Not Me." 

Pharrell said he was amazed how classic she can make her voice. 

"Who are you, where do you come from?" Pharrell asked.  

Meanwhile, her coach made a bold prediction about her future singing career. 

"I'm not just talking about this show, you're going to be a round for a long, long time," Shelton predicted.

Both Emily Ann Roberts and Jordan Smith will need your votes to move on to the Top 10. There are four different ways to vote: "The Voice" app, NBC.com, "The Voice" Facebook page, and by buying their songs on iTunes. Voting closes Tuesday at noon. Tune in Tuesday night at 8 p.m. to see who makes it into the Top 10.

Now before Emily Ann made her prime time debut on the hit NBC competition, she got her T.V. start singing on WBIR in 2012. She appeared as part of a preview for that year's "Knoxville's Got Talent" competition. Now, she's found herself performing on a much bigger stage. 

In addition to her singing, her boots caught the attention of Gwen Stefani. After one of Emily Ann's performances, she complimented her style and how "sparkly" they were. Emily Ann actually got them back in East Tennessee from locally-owned Elliott's Boots and Shoes.
