SPOILER ALERT: The following information will spoil Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice”. Proceed at your own peril…
The top 10 live elimination episode of “The Voice” had the judges on the edges of their seats. A quick front runner emerged in Blake Shelton, who saw three of his acts through to the final seven. The country crooner rounded out both sides of the standings, celebrating Aliyah Moulden’s number one spot and sighing a breath of relief at TSoul’s number seven standing.
Gwen Stefani has her bases covered with number four Hunter Plake and number six Brennley Brown.
Alicia Keys, who recently revealed this would be her last season on the reality singing competition, has a promising pupil in second placed Chris Blue — the only Team Alicia member to crack the top seven.
And then we have Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who saw both Mark Isaiah and Lilli Passero sent home — officially ending Levine’s chances of winning season 12.
So who came out of the save-me performances singed but still breathing? Team Alicia’s Vanessa Ferguson hung on by the skin of her teeth in a competitive last-chance performance. Her rendition of “For Once in My Life” by Stevie Wonder impressed against Passero’s “Stormy Weather” by Etta James and Isaiah’s “Sorry” by Justin Bieber.
The official standings heading into the next show are:
1. Aliyah Moulden (Team Blake)
2. Chris Blue (Team Alicia)
3. Lauren Duski (Team Blake)
4. Hunter Plake (Team Gwen)
5. Jesse Larson (Team Adam)
6. Brennley Brown (Team Gwen)
7. TSoul (Team Blake)
8. Vanessa Ferguson (Team Alicia) (SAVED)
And here is who went home:
Mark Isaiah and Lilli Passero
