NBC's The Voice is down to its Top 20 singers this week. With the Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds and the Knockout Round completed, the viewers' votes as lives shows get underway.

Two of the singers competing are local. Austin Jenckes, 25, is from Duvall, Wash. and Stephanie Anne Johnson is from Tacoma.

Last Tuesday, Johnson performed her own version of Norah Jones' "Don't Know Why." Her name wasn't picked as the winner, but Christina Aguilera hit her button to make the steal.

Then Jenckes took the stage to perform "I'll Be." When the performance was over, it was clear to Blake Shelton Jenckes had won.

During the live show performances, the top artists from each team compete against each other, then the audience votes to save their favorites. The two artists with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week.

Jenckes performed Monday and voting for him closed Tuesday morning. Johnson is set to take the stage Tuesday night. Voting for her opens after the show.

Johnson spent 3 years singing on cruise ships before getting her shot on the show, while Jenckes moved to Nashville in 2012.

Jenckes, who describes his music as having roots in county and folk, is competing on Team Blake. Christina Aguilera used a steal to bring Johnson to her team. She describes her music as a blend of blues, folk and rock.
