'The Voice' Top 11 Revealed
Two artists were eliminated from The Voice season 15 on Tuesday night. The bottom three sang for the Instant Save, but only one could make it through to next week’s Top 11 performances. Coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson had to hope their teams would emerge unscathed, no longer having any control over the results.
The first artists voted through were Team Adam’s Reagan Strange, Team Blake’s Kirk Jay and Team Jennifer’s Kennedy Holmes. Then, Team Kelly’s Chevel Shepherd and Team Blake’s Chris Kroeze also made it through.
Levine then sang Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” with his team, a song choice that particularly suited Strange. The next artists voted through were Team Adam’s DeAndre Nico, Team Kelly’s Kymberli Joye and Team Jennifer’s MaKenzie Thomas.
Team Kelly then performed the Whitney Houston hit “I Will Always Love You.” The last artists to automatically advance to the Top 11 were Team Blake’s Dave Fenley and Team Kelly’s Sarah Grace.
The bottom three included Team Jennifer’s SandyRedd, Team Kelly’s Lynnea Moorer and Team Adam’s Tyke James. They had to sing for the Instant Save, with only one emerging victorious.
SandyRedd got things started with a performance of “Believer.” She brought strong dynamics and a moving lyrical interpretation to the song.
James was up next, singing “Home.” This time, he didn’t have a ukulele and really just focused on the vocals. It was one of his personal best performances, and he didn’t let nerves get to him.
Moorer closed things out by singing “If I Ain’t Got You,” which was the kind of big show-stopping song choice that these situations call for. She certainly stood out, and it paid off. She secured the Instant Save, and James and SandyRedd were eliminated.
The Top 11 perform next week on NBC.
