During his last moment to try and salvage a spot in the remaining finalists, one of the fan-favorite artists on Blake Shelton’s ‘Voice’ team didn’t quite do enough to move forward.
Currently in its 11th season, NBC’s hit singing competition, The Voice, is filled with more talent than anyone could imagine – and it only makes it that much harder to see someone get eliminated. This was a feeling Blake Shelton had to experience twice during last night’s live rounds.
The ‘Top 10’ finalists took to the stage in a bevy of performances that were so good they could send chills down your spine.
All four coaches, Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and Miley Cyrus were in great spirits ready to kick off another stunning night of performances and excitement – but also one that would be hard because they knew that two of the wildly talented team members would be lose their seat and have to pack their bags.
Several contestants who landed at the bottom of the ranks were put on the spot for a chance to save their spot on a team, but only one of the three would end up making it through.
Team Blake had two of the three competing for the ‘Instant Save’ and Miley Cyrus had one of her team members fighting for a chance to stay as well.
Austin Allsup, from Team Blake, kicked off the round with a performance of Chris Stapleton’s unforgettable super hit, “Tennessee Whiskey”.
Moving through each verse with ease and confidence, Allsup was incredibly strong in his performance, adding flourishes of twang to compliment his gritty voice.
“I always root for you,” Levine revealed to Allsup, adding that he had won his heart with his performances on the show.
While the coaches and audience were obviously taken with Allsup’s dazzling demonstration of his skill and talent, it was the American viewers who ultimately decided his fate on The Voice.
Team Blake’s fellow contestant, Courtney Harrell, also gave a top-notch performance of everyone’s favorite Rascal Flats song, “Bless The Broken Road” and absolutely crushed it according to the coaches reactions.
With two powerful performances, it appears that the viewers watching and voting for the ‘Instant Save’ didn’t agree with all of the judge’s comments and ended up voting off both team members from Team Blake.
Cyrus’ team member, Aaron Gibson, saved his spot with an equally powerful performance of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice”.
