“The Voice” had a double elimination on Tuesday’s results show, revealing the Top 8 with the Instant Save. Find out who survived and who went home below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the Top 10 for season 13 all gave live performances on Monday’s two-hour broadcast. As has become the norm, there were multiple standing ovations throughout the night. And four of the artists ranked within the top 10 on the iTunes singles chart when the voting window closed at noon on Tuesday. Most successful was Brooke Simpson, who placed second. Chloe Kohanski’s “Call Me” landed her at number four, while Addison Agen’s stripped-down “Lucky” took the fifth position. In the 10th spot was Keisha Renee.
They all received the bonus multiplier applied to their vote totals, so it was no surprise tonight when host Carson Daly revealed they were all through to the next round. After three others found out they were also in the Top 8 — Noah Mac, Adam Cunningham and Red Marlowe — that meant the three lowest vote-getters — Ashland Craft (Team Miley), Davon Fleming (Team JHud) and Shi’Ann Jones (Team JHud) — were all in jeopardy of going home. Only one could be instantly saved by fans casting votes on Twitter to award the final slot in the Top 8. The other two would be eliminated, and with two singers at risk, Jennifer Hudson was guaranteed to lose at least one.
Before that Twitter voting period opened up, the trio had a chance to perform once more in hopes of earning redemption. First up was Craft, who performed “Tonight I Wanna Cry.” Jones followed, singing “At Last.” And, lastly, Fleming took the stage with “Ain’t No Way.” Viewers then had five minutes to tweet which contestant should be saved. And FLEMING WON! Heartbreakingly, that meant Jones and Craft were now out of the competition.
Next week, the semifinals will commence with the Top 8. Blake Shelton still has a full team of Renee, Kohanski and Marlowe. Adam Levine is keeping Agen and Cunningham. Due to the elimination, Cyrus only has Simpson left. And the combined elimination and save means Hudson heads into the next round with just Fleming and Mac. And this is key: Next Tuesday, eight will become four.
