The Voice can be an emotional experience for not only the contestants who are battling it out for a shot at fame, but also for the coaches who become invested in their team members' journeys.
And during Sunday night's knockout round, it all became too much for Guy Sebastian and he broke down in tears.
The Before I Go singer was forced to choose between Jordy Marcs, Lara Dabbagh and Jack Vidgen and with no "saves" left up his sleeve, Guy knew he'd only be able to take one person through.
Admitting he thought Jack needed him the most, Guy chose the former Australia's Got Talent winner, but it clearly wasn't an easy decision for him.

After Jack exited the stage, Guy pleaded with Jordy and Lara "Can I just say, can I still be in your lives?
"This is killing me. Like I've been in these sorts of…." he said, before choking up and becoming unable to finish his sentence.
A teary-eyed Guy sheepishly added: "What an idiot, I'm so sorry."
Luckily, fellow coach Kelly Rowland was on hand to offer words of comfort, softly telling him "You're not an idiot."
Contestant Lara also admitted she was touched by Guy's emotional on-stage display.
"Dude, you're gonna make me cry man," she told him.
Guy explained that the reason he was so upset was that he just thought Jordy and Lara were "amazing", before wiping away tears and encouraging the show to go on.
"I'm so embarrassed. Let's get to the saves, let's get to the saves!" he said.
While it ended up being the end of the road for Jordy, young Lara got a second chance in the form of Team Kelly, when the Destiny's Child star used her "save" to steal her for her team.
