‘The Voice’ Recap: Top 5 Announced Ahead of Historic Season 21 Finale
The Voice Season 21 is wrapping up as the Top 5 were announced during the live results show. Three groups were eliminated after Monday night’s Semifinals performances. The competition was narrowed down from the Top 8 to the Top 5 and Girl Named Tom was named the first group to ever advance to the finale.
Four artists made it through thanks to America’s overnight vote. The remaining four singers were up for the Instant Save vote, and three were eliminated from the competition. At the end of the night, Jershika Maple was announced as the winner of the Instant Save vote, while Lana Scott, Joshua Vacanti, and Jim and Sasha Allen went home.
Team Blake and Team Kelly both have two artists in the finale, while Team Legend has one. Shockingly, new coach Ariana Grande is going into next week with zero finalists. Also notable is that Girl Named Tom is the first trio to ever make it to the finale. Could they take it even further and become the first group to ever win?

Blake Shelton had two artist go straight to the Finals thanks to America’s vote — Wendy Moten and Paris Winningham, who delivered an amazing duet during Monday night’s show. Kelly Clarkson’s group Girl Named Tom also made it straight through, along with teammate Hailey Mia.
That means that Lana Scott (Team Blake), Joshua Vacanti (Team Legend), Jim and Sasha Allen (Team Ariana), and Jershika Maple (Team Legend) were up for the Instant Save. Fans had five minutes to vote for which artist they wanted to keep in the competition.

John Legend, Blake Shelton Perform Their Latest Songs
During Tuesday’s results show, coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton both took the stage to perform new songs. Legend started things off with a performance of his holiday song “You Deserve It All.” The singer wore a stylish green velvet suit and was surrounded by dancers and festive decorations.
Later in the night, Shelton grabbed his guitar to perform his track “Come Back as a Country Boy” from the deluxe version of his album Body Language. The stage was covered in fog, and he was backed by fire and lightning, a reference to the song’s dramatic music video.
Tuesday’s episode also featured a performance from country singer Carly Pearce, who performed her song “29.” This season’s artist Lana Scott recently performed Pearce’s song “Next Girl” during the Top 20.
The Voice will return live for the Finals next Monday night on NBC.
