NBC’s Season 4 of The Voice had its first live round of eliminations on tonight’s episode!
America has voted for their favorites during the first two nights of the live playoffs. Two contestants from each team will be saved by America’s votes, while the other two contestants are in the bottom two. Each coach will then have to make the ultimate decision in saving one of the two artists in the bottom two.
Tonight’s elimination will end with 12 contestants moving on to the next round of the competition.
Here are the results for each team!
Team Adam Levine
The top two contestants America chose to save during the first round of the live playoffs are the powerhouse vocalist and former Michael Jackson backup singer Judith Hill and Country sweetheart Amber Carrington. Thus, the bottom two were the magnificently angelic singer Sarah Simmons and coffeehouse singer/songwriter folk artist Caroline Glaser. Adam, who was visibly struggling to make a decision, ultimately ended up saving Sarah Simmons and saying goodbye to Caroline Glaser.
America chose to save the lovable rock/pop artist Michelle Chamuel and R&B/soul singer Vedo. This decision left Cathia and Josiah Hawley in the bottom two. Usher ended up saving former model Josaiah Hawley over one of our favorite Latina singers Cathia.
America’s votes declared powerful vocalist Sasha Allen and unique soul artist Kris Thomas safe. Therefore, the bottom two contestants on Shakira’s Team were talented young rocker Garrett Gardner, who sang a masterful rendition of The Beatles’ “Imagine” and Karina, who also gave a stunning performance of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.” Tough decision for Shakira! In the end, Shakira chose to save Garrett Gardner!
Team Blake Shelton
16-year old country singer Danielle Bradbery and fellow country sweetheart Holly Tucker were announced safe by America’s votes. Thus, The Swon Brothers and Justin Rivers were left in the bottom two. In the end, Blake decided to keep things interesting and saved The Swon Borthers!
So there you have it folks! The top 12 Contestants on Season 4 of The Voice include: Danielle Bradbery, Holly Tucker, The Swon Brothers, Sasha Allen, Kris Thomas, Garrett Gardner, Michelle Chamuel, Vedo, Josiah Hawley, Judith Hill, Amber Harrington, Sarah Simmons!
