On last night’s live results show on The Voice 2013 we said goodbye to four talented artists, but we also witnessed a new record in Voice history. For the first time in four seasons, a duo made it through to the second set of live shows.
Team Blake Shelton’s The Swon Brothers beat The Thompson Sister’s record from Season 1 to become the most successful duo this show has seen thus far. In the past, duos have struggled to make it past the battle rounds stage of the competition, but this season both The Swon Brothers and folk duo Midas Whale advanced to the knockout rounds.
Unfortunately, Adam Levine eliminated Midas Whale in the knockouts, but The Swon Brothers are still going strong. The Oklahoma duo sang The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s “Fishin’ in the Dark” for their first live show, bringing a lively original vibe to the overly cliché song list this season.
They still landed in Team Blake’s bottom two with Justin Rivers, but Blake recognized the duo’s ability to standout in this season’s talent pool and picked them to move forward. Now that the voting is entirely in America’s hands, will these boys survive another week? That remains to be seen, but for now, congrats, Swon Bros!
Are you surprised The Swon Brothers made it so far? Tell us below!
