Nicholas David will compete in the final round of ‘The Voice’

It's been two emotional evenings in a row for the final four contestants of NBC's "The Voice."

After a brief return home to visit their families, Nicholas David, Cassadee Pope, Terry McDermott, and Trevin Hunte all took to the stage Monday night for the penultimate round of the national singing competition.

Eagan native Nicholas David - a.k.a. Nick Mrozinski - was particularly soulful as he sang Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful" to his wife and kids who were standing just off the stage.

Tonight it was announced that just one contestant would be eliminated from the competition - Trevin Hunte - leaving the remaining three to compete in the final round next week.

While David is known for his fine skill with classic R&B tunes, his competition are more solidly in the "pop" vein. He's received consistent praise from the judges, but ultimately the winner will be selected by his or her popularity with viewers.
