Reading Time: 4 minutes
The Voice Season 24 Live Shows are officially here. After witnessing pre-recorded episodes to this point, the show finally went live with their remaining Top 12 artists. Here’s everything that you missed on the series.
How to Vote for The Voice Season 24
The episode started with host Carson Daly explaining how to vote. For those who may not know, voting for The Voice Season 24 opens after each episode. Therefore, fans can vote on December 4, 11, and 18. Fans can vote through the show’s website, or the show’s official app. The voting window opens at 6:55pm PT/9:55 PM ET to 4 a.m. PT.
During Tuesday night’s results show, the artists with the lowest votes will be up for the instant save. For those who may not be familiar, one artist will be instantly saved after performing one more time. Fans are typically able to vote for the instant save, but The Voice has yet to confirm whether it’ll be the audience’s pick or the coaches’ pick.
Artists Impress in the First Live Show
Following all of the information related to voting, the first pre-recorded package went on, featuring the show’s Live Show mentor, Chance The Rapper. The first artist of the night was Jacquie Roar. The Team Reba member took the stage first, singing “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” by Lainey Wilson.
Up next was Team Niall artist, Nini Iris. As expected, she picked another lower register powerhouse song. This round, she sang “Love Song” by The Cure. Following Nini was Team Gwen artist Kara Tenae. Kara was openly excited to work with Chance The Rapper, since he’s so heavy in the R&B realm. The singer went on to perform Chance The Rapper’s favorite song, “Love” by Keyshia Cole.
Tanner Massey decided to show off his rock side for this round of the competition. With some slight changes, Tanner decided to perform an alternative rock version of “Thanks For The Memories” by Fall Out Boy. Up next was Team Legend’s emotional singer Lila Forde. In this round, Lila decided to return to the piano for her performance of “Closer to Fine” by Indigo Girls. This was Lila’s first time playing the piano since her Blind Audition.
Finally, fan favorite Team Reba member Ruby Leigh took the stage, singing McEntire’s tune “You Lie.” Although Ruby is the youngest singer left, she definitely didn’t sound it. At this point in the episode, Ruby had the best vocals.
Huntley Puts His Spin on a Beatles Song
Team Niall powerhouse Huntley came to the stage singing “With a Little Help From my Friends” by The Beatles. Hunley’s rendition of this hit song was truly the coolest I’ve ever heard. I think this performance solidified his spot in the next round, it was absolutely jaw dropping.
Team Legend was up next, with his Super Save artist, Azán. The saved singer returned to the stage again singing “Ex-Factor” by Lauryn Hill. Legend shared that the show had to get permission for Azán to sing this song, since it hasn’t been sung on the show before.
Jordan Rainer from Team Reba was the next singer taking the stage. The country artist decided to perform “Stranger in My House” by Ronnie Milsap.
Mara Justine Shows Off Her Powerhouse Vocals
Fan favorite Mara Justine is back with “Lose Control” by Teddy Swims. Mara’s performance was so impressive, not only were her vocals amazing, she added so much passion into the song.
Second to last was Team Legend member Mac Royals. This R&B singer came to the stage “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt. The final artist of the night was Team Gwen member BIAS. To follow through with BIAS’ country/soul genre, he decided to sing “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash.
The Voice returns to NBC on Tuesday, December 5, for the first edition of the Live Results Show. Be sure to tune into this episode at 9 p.m. ET so you don’t miss the instant save.
