After a week of Live Playoffs on The Voice, it’s time for eliminations! Find out which artists you voted for to move onto the Top 12, and which ones were saved by their coaches. Plus, performances from Maroon 5 and the Season 2 winner, Jermaine Paul! All the highlights — and of course, the results — after the jump.
Tonight, on NBC, after their first live performances, it’s now time to see who made the cut and which artists from Teams Adam, Blake, Cee Lo, and Christina will make up the Top 12.
But, of course, there has to be a lot of filler to drag things out for as long as possible. So, first, Teams Adam and Blake get together to sing Kelly Clarkson‘s “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger).”
Then, Team Adam hits the stage to learn their fate. The artist with the most votes is Amanda Brown. No surprises there after her stellar performance of “Dream On,” that had everyone on their feet. The second artist to be saved by America’s vote is Bryan Keith, leaving Adam Levine to choose between Loren Allred, Melanie Martinez, and Joselyn Rivera. The three couldn’t be any more different, but as we kind of expected, Adam ultimately chooses Melanie.
After Maroon 5′s performance of their latest single, “Daylight,” Season 2 winner and Team Blake alum, Jermaine Paul debuts his own single, “I Believe in This Life.”
The current members of Team Blake are on the chopping block now, though. Again, not surprisingly, Terry McDermott is the first name called, having received the highest number of votes. And second…Cassadee Pope. It’s a tough choice for Blake, with Julio Cesar Castillo, Liz Davis, and Michaela Paige left on stage. Will he go with the only true country artist in the competition — Liz? NO! Instead, Papa Bear chooses the girl who’s had his heart from the start, Michaela.
Teams Christina and Cee Lo join forces for a performance of “Drive By,” before the artists from Team Christina find out which of them are moving on in the competition (Is it just us or are their performances just more energetic than the other teams?!).
Do we even need to tell you that Dez Duron (the heartthrob) is going through to the next round? BUT, it’s a big surprise that De’Borah didn’t get the audience vote. Instead, it’s Sylvia Yacoub who’s saved. Devyn DeLoera, Adriana Louise, and De’Borah are left standing, and Christina chooses Adriana to move forward. Yet another season that Christina cuts a fan fave early!
Finally, Cee Lo’s Lady Killers are up. The one with the most votes is Trevin Hunte (shocker), followed by Nicholas David! MacKenzie Bourg, Diego Val, and Cody Belew are all up for elimination, and going with the “most improved,” Green chooses Cody Belew.
So, the Top 12 consists of:
Amanda Brown, Bryan Keith, Terry McDermott, Cassadee Pope, Michaela Paige, Dez Duron, Sylvia Yacoub, Adriana Louise, Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David, and Cody Belew.
Are you surprised by the coaches saves? Who do you think should’ve moved on to the Top 12? Sound off in the Comments section below.
