The Voice Recap: Top 11 Eliminations
This season of The Voice is speeding along and its hard to believe we’ve already reached a Top 10. The contestants were given fan song choices this week, and last night we found out how America voted. With the first nine contestants being announced, the bottom two were left to perform and have a five minute period where America voted to save one.
The 11 contestants were brought out on the stage to announce the first two that will be in the Top 10. These names were announced in no particular order. First to make it to the next round is Team Blake’s Pryor Baird and Team Alicia’s Britton Buchanan.
Next, we cut to a segment where we get to know fun facts about the contestants and a performance by Janella Monae to her song Make Me Feel.
The contestants are brought out once again where Team Adam’s Rayshun LaMarr and Team Kelly’s Brynn Cartelli are announced to move onto the Top 10. Rayshun has broken his way from the bottom two and his Top 10 placement is well deserved.
Just as Blake and Kelly performed with their teams last week, we had Alicia and Adam perform with their teams this week. First up was Adam with his contestants Rayshun LaMarr, Jackie Verna and Sharane Calister perform the song The Scientist.
Next up to be called to the Top 10 was Team Blake’s Spensha Baker and Team Adam’s Jackie Verna.
Team Alicia was next to perform. She took to the stage with her contestants Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle and Jackie Foster to perform the song Give Me Shelter.
Finally, our final five were joined on stage to have three names announced for the Top 10 placements. Team Blake’s Kyla Jade, Team Alicia’s Jackie Foster, and Team Kelly’s Kaleb Lee were all announced to move onto the next round.
This left Team Alicia’s Christiana and Team Adam’s Sharane in the bottom two, and it was up to America to save one of them.
Sharane Calister chose the song If I Were a Boy by Beyonce. Her performance was grounded and soulful, as her coach Adam expressed his frustration that she was in the bottom. He said that the bottom doesn’t reflect anyone’s talent and that this show is about a series of moments. He said while Sharane has had big moments on the show, he feels she’s just about to have a breakthrough and wants America to give her that chance.
Next up was Christiana who sang the song A Thousand Years. Alicia said that she always gets goosebumps when watching Christiana perform because her voice is a piece of art. She urges America to save Christiana because she is an original.
Ultimately, in the short voting period that America had, they chose Christiana to move to the next round. Making it the end of Sharane’s journey on the voice. She has an incredible performance through the entirety of the season and we know this is only the beginning for her!
