‘The Voice’ Top 17 Perform + A Fan Favorite Exits [VOTE HERE]
The Voice Season 19 live shows kicked off on Monday night, as the Top 17 performed. It’s up to America to vote for their favorites. Only nine of the remaining contestants will make it through to next week’s show.
Tonight’s show started off with the results of last week’s four-way knockout. The saved contestants from all four teams competed against each other, and America voted one of them through to the live shows.
Unfortunately, host Carson Daly announced that Ryan Gallagher had to exit the competition. (Ryan said tonight on Instagram that everything is fine, and more details are to come.) It came down to the other three singers — Taryn Papa, Larriah Jackson, and Julia Cooper. The artist chosen by the voters to move forward was Taryn on Team Blake.
Check out tonight’s The Voice performances below, and remember to vote for your favorites until 7 a.m. ET on Tuesday. We’ll find out who made it through during Tuesday’s results show.
