'The Voice' Recap: Four Contestants Are Sent Home
The Voice had a special Wednesday episode during the first week of live shows to reveal which four contestants would be sent home.
Contestants from Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher's teams performed on Monday and Tuesday, hoping to win over America and the coaches.
America's votes will save two of the four performers and the coach will get to save a third, sending one member of each team home.
Also, the show had an interesting twist when host Carson Daly revealed that there had been some voting inconsistencies.
It was a tough night for many of the coaches, forced to cut a member of their own teams to make the Top 12. Levine seemed to struggle the most, barely making his decision before the show ended.
Now on to the results:
Holly Tucker and Danielle Bradberry are saved by America's votes.
Shelton decides to save the Swon Brothers because he felt that have staying power.
Justin Rivers is sent home.
Kris Thomas and Sasha Allen are saved by America.
Shakira decides to save Garrett Gardner, saying that she has more to teach him.
Karina Iglesias is sent home.
Vedo and Michelle Chamuel are saved by America.
Usher decides to save Joshua Hawley, claiming, like Shakira did, that he has more to teach him.
Cathia is sent home.
Judith Hill and Amber Carrington are saved by America.
Levine decides to save Sarah Simmons.
Caroline Glasser is sent home.
