Camila encouraged Steven and Morgan to sing to each other while coaching them with her team advisor Charlie Puth, 30.

Morgan talked about connecting with the song because she had a very toxic relationship, while Steven leaned on his experience as a songwriter for artists such as Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Joe Cocker and Tim McGraw.

Charlie admitted he knew it would be a hard choice for Camila.

Camila gave them a standing ovation when they finished.
