Whether you're keeping up with American Idol on ABC or The Voice NBC, you have to admit – there's just something addicting about singing competitions. And this week didn't disappoint. American Idol's Gabby Barrett and The Voice's Kyla Jade both had viral-worthy performances that gave us chills. Watch them below as they've landed on our Viralist. 

1. "The Voice's" Kyla Jade Performs The Beatles' "Let it Be" 

To say that Kyla's "Let it Be" performance on Monday night was breathtaking is an understatement. The 33-year-old gospel singer from Nashville represents Team Blake Shelton, and is now on the singing competition's "Top 4." Check out her killer vocals below. 

2. Kyla Jade's Duet Performance with Spensha Baker 

Kyla's second performance of the night was next to Spensha Baker in a song mashup of Andra Day's "Rise Up" and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On." The performance also earned Spensha a spot in the show's "Top 4." Both ladies belong to Team Blake Shelton.  

The rest of the "Top 4" lineup includes Brynn Cartelli on Team Kelly Clarkson and Britton Buchanan from Team Alicia Keys. Adam Levine is the only judge left without a contestant in the competition.  

3. "American Idol's" Gabby Barrett Performs Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" 

Switching gears to American Idol, we have another female powerhouse whose performance blew up on the internet this week. Gabby Barrett of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania did a goosebumps-worthy performance of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" Sunday night. The judges have complemented her for her progress over the course of the show, and she's now earned a spot in Season 16's final three.  

4. Gabby Barrett's Performance of Carrie Underwood's "Last Name" 

Sunday night was a Carrie Underwood-themed show for American Idol. Coincidentally, Gabby is a super fan of the country singer, so she was thrilled to sing "Last Name" for the judges. The 17-year-old will be competing against Maddie Poppe of Iowa and Caleb Lee Hutchinson of Georgia in May 20's grand finale on ABC.
