The Voice: Gwen Stefani openly weeps after singer Rose Short performs rendition of Foreigner ballad

Gwen Stefani was reduced to tears Monday while listening to her contestant Rose Short sing about finding love on The Voice as the semifinalists performed.

Rose, a 35-year-old former corrections officer from Killeen, Texas, gave a heartfelt rendition of Foreigner’s I Want To Know What Love Is that had all the coaches on their feet.

But it seemed to have especially profound meaning for Gwen, 50, who sobbed and fanned her face as she listened to her last team member perform.

The Voice host Carson Daly, 46, tried to go to Gwen for comment after the song ended, but she protested: ‘No! Oh my God, I’m not ready. I’m crying.’

‘That was unbelievable,’ she told Rose. ‘I am so in awe of you. I am so honored to work with you!’

She doubled over in tears again, overcome by emotion, and said: ‘Cut the cameras!’

‘It was moving!’ coach Kelly Clarkson, 37, affirmed to Rose. ‘You are a gift. You are a gift. I don’t care what happens on the show, you are so blessed. That was so good.’

Just eight contestants were left to perform on Monday, all of them vying for a spot in the finals.

Rose was Gwen’s sole remaining contestant after the elimination rounds, and she came onstage dressed to win, her long hair flowing over a dazzling sequined gown.

But even in rehearsals, Gwen knew Rose would ‘knock it out of the park’ with her soulful, vulnerable rendition of the song.

‘Rose has an incredible voice that can do any kind of vocal acrobatics,’ Gwen observed. ‘She’s so tasteful, and she really only uses it to supply whatever emotion she’s trying to get across.’

‘One thing about these lyrics,’ the No Doubt songstress told her contestant before she performed. ‘When I’m hearing you sing it, I feel like this is my story.’

‘I’m just a super-ordinary girl from Orange County. I think about my life, how much I wanted to feel what real love felt like. It’s the same for you,’ Gwen said.

Gwen has been dating fellow coach Blake Shelton, 42, for the past four years, and divorced singer Gavin Rossdale in 2015.

The song that Rose sang also had special meaning for her, as it reminded her of her parents’ enduring love as they’d been together for at least four decades.

It encouraged her to love herself more, she admitted, and that had changed everything.

‘Once you deal with how perfectly flawed you are, and accept it, it’s a feeling like no other,’ Rose confessed.

While Gwen placed all of her bets on Rose, coach John Legend, 40, had three contestants left.

Blake Shelton, 43, was working with two singers, as was his longtime pal Kelly.

Kelly’s duo Hello Sunday turned in an especially impressive performance of Stevie Wonder’s Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing, which had everyone in the studio cheering.

Singers Myla Finks and Chelsea Glover, both 14, recalled their first meeting two years before at a choir camp.

‘When I first heard her voice, I was like, ”She okay, but I got some tricks up under my sleeve”,’ Chelsea shared, as Myla remembered thinking that she was the better singer.

Kelly, who’d gone to choir camps like the girls, urged them to stop trying to be ‘perfect’ and instead concentrate on making the song flow effortlessly.

‘Just stay focused, stay happy, do what y’all love to do,’ she emphasized.

Not only did the girls go on to rock the song, they did complicated choreography along with the dancers as if they were already performing in stadiums.

All four coaches rose in a standing ovation for Hello Sunday.

The audience cheered so loudly that they barely gave John a chance to review them, but he finally offered: ‘The fact that you’re competitive with each other makes you both better.’

‘This was the perfect song, the perfect time,’ agreed Kelly. ‘America, they are 14 years old, and just nailed that.’

Her other singer, Jake Hoot, 31, then turned in a flawless cover of The Eagles’ Desperado.

It was a favorite song of his mother’s, said Jake, one of nine kids from Cookeville, Tennessee.

‘I had not one note,’ Kelly revealed after listening to Jake sing it in rehearsal. ‘This song sounds like you’re going to see Jake Hoot on tour and this was one of his big hits.’

‘I’m the luckiest coach in the world,’ she told him. ‘How are you only a one-chair turn?’

After the rest of the coaches heard Jake perform, John concurred, calling him ‘an excellent, excellent singer,’ and noting, ‘it was a joy to listen to that performance.’

The All of Me hitmaker proved particularly skilled at getting his own team to unearth new sides of themselves in their performances.

First up was Chicago’s Katie Kadan, 38, who turned in a stripped-down version of Labelle’s Lady Marmalade after John beatboxed to show the band how to make it leaner.

He also insisted that Katie only perform the sultry lead vocals throughout the song, leaving the repetitive ‘Hey sister’ chorus for her backup singers to sing.

‘It makes you the boss,’ he told his contestant, who’d been rising up the iTunes charts.

‘I’ve been teaching music since I was 19,’ Katie reflected. ‘I taught a lot of Patti LaBelle to my soul singers. I learn more here at The Voice than eight years playing gig after gig at home.’

‘You be yourself,’ John told her. ‘Your voice, your charm, your spirit. You’re going to be in the finals. I know it.’

Onstage, Katie was entertaining and vocally versatile, which had Carson saying: ‘I think you won a Grammy and a Tony during that.’

‘You demand everybody’s attention, and it’s just so professional, so incredible,’ Gwen affirmed.

Marybeth Byrd, 18, from Armorel, Arkansas, then switched things up by rocking out to Carrie Underwood’s Before He Cheats, a departure from her usually quiet, mannered vocals.

‘I think it’s time to have a party on the stage,’ she considered before she went on.

John thought that having to fight for her spot on the show last week had lit a fire under Marybeth, calling it her ‘best vocal performance’ since she’d been on the show.

His final artist, Will Breman, 26, from Santa Barbara, California, performed Bruno Mars’ Locked Out Of Heaven, which John called ‘a good hybrid of pop and rock’ for him.

Will had once wanted to be a lawyer, and his analytical mind was proving to be a good fit for the show, as it helped him deconstruct his performances.

‘Will is so unique; he has the ability to create his own lane,’ his coach said, as Will sang a section with only a hi-hat instrumental behind him.

‘John gets who I am as an artist, and he’s been able to break everything down for me in ways that I’ve understood,’ Will volunteered. ‘Being here has completely changed who I am as an artist and a musician.’

When it was his turn, Will went right into the audience, and had everyone jamming along with him, which got him a standing ovation from the coaches.

‘Every week, you’re just impressing me so much,’ John admitted, praising Will’s voice and stage presence. ‘It’s just so much fun to watch you, so much fun to work with you.’

Team Blake devoted its resources to its two last singers: Kat Hammock, 19, and Ricky Duran, 29.

One year ago, Kat was waiting tables and planning to attend college at Villanova, but things had changed.

‘My life goals were simple, and family-oriented,’ remembered the Encinitas, California, native. ‘I wanted to start a big family. I was thinking about being a teacher, and maybe singing at church on the side. Nothing like singing in front of millions of people.’

Her soft rendition of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know easily won favor with the coaches.

‘You need to understand how gifted you are,’ Gwen said. ‘You need to make records, you need to keep going after this. You can have a whole career after this. I know you can.’

Ricky followed her later with The Beatles song Let It Be, ‘a family anthem’ that reminded him of his late parents, both of whom had liked it for different reasons.

He began his performance by playing the song on the piano, then turned into a full-blown rocker by picking up his electric guitar to finish it.

‘Ricky reminds me of why I want to be a coach on this show every time I work with him,’ Blake said, before the audience gave the Austin, Texas resident a standing ovation.

‘Dude, you just gave the vocal performance of your life,’ Blake told him.

Each contestant also sang a 1980s hit with another contestant.

Will and Ricky both played electric guitar on Outfield’s Your Love, calling themselves ‘Duran Breman’ after their last names.

Marybeth and Jake joined forces on Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes’ Up Where We Belong, walking down staircases to meet each other at the bottom.

Rose and Katie, who referred to themselves as ’80s babies,’ performed a duet on Madonna’s Express Yourself, backed by a choir dressed entirely in yellow.

The last duet found Kat working with her ‘little sisters’ Hello Sunday on Pat Benatar’s We Belong, a song that none of the ‘Hello Hammock’ girls had ever heard in their lives.

The Voice returns Tuesday on NBC when the four finalists will be determined.
