In a rare move on the part of a contestant on The Voice, (or really any competition show), Hannah Goebel dropped out of the running right before she was supposed to battle against Alexa Capelli. That’s why she performed Sam Smith’s Pray on the show by herself even though Hannah appears on the recording of it being sold on iTunes.
This means Alexa moves on automatically to the knockouts, which is pretty great because Alexa is fantastic. But we really wanted to see Hannah as well. You’ll recall that she got a four chair turn when she sang If I Ain’t Got You and made Kelly Clarkson use her block to keep her from getting on team Alicia. NBC confirmed that Hannah left the competition but declined to say why. Hannah has also been radio silent on social media.
It’s none of our business what’s going on with Hannah and I say we leave her be. Whatever the reason she dropped out must have been serious.
