'The Voice': Final Live Cross Battles Results Revealed
The final results for the Live Cross Battles aired live on NBC's The Voice on Tuesday night. Only 11 artists could move forward to the top 24, with eight voted through by viewers and the others determined by Blake Shelton’s remaining steal and John Legend’s and Kelly Clarkson’s remaining saves. Coach Adam Levine already used his save and steal earlier in the round.
After a performance by season 14 winner Brynn Cartelli, the first results came in. Between Team Adam’s LB Crew and Team Kelly’s Jej Vinson, America voted though Vinson, and Crew was eliminated.
Team Adam’s Kendra Checketts and Team Legend’s Jimmy Mowery were in the hot seat next. Mowery bested Checketts, but Shelton went ahead and used his steal to keep her in the competition.
Shawn Sounds from Team Legend and Karly Moreno from Team Blake were up next, and America voted through Sounds. Moreno went home.
Between Team Blake’s Carter Lloyd Horne and Team Legend’s Jacob Maxwell, viewers crowned Horne, leaving Maxwell on the chopping block, but Legend used his save to put Maxwell in the top 24.
Team Adam’s Kalvin Jarvis was voted through over his Battle partner, Team Legend’s Julian King, and King was eliminated from the competition.
Team Kelly’s Rebecca Howell next faced Team Legend’s Beth Griffith-Manley, and Howell was voted through. Griffith-Manley was eliminated in one of the biggest upsets of the night.
Between Team Blake’s Gyth Rigdon and Team Kelly’s Abby Kasch, America chose Rigdon. Clarkson used the final steal of the round to keep Kasch around for the top 24.
In the final results of the round, Team Blake’s Andrew Sevener managed to beat out Team Kelly’s trio of siblings, the Bundys.
The final counts for each team heading into the top 24 were eight for Team Blake, six for Team Legend, six for Team Kelly and four for Team Adam.
The top 24 will perform live next Monday.
