It gets harder each week to say goodbye to the contestants on The Voice, but Sara Bareilles sang that she wants to see us be brave, so we’re going to do our best.
The good news is that while we can’t save all our favorite artists, we can try to save one with the new Instant Save. This new elimination feature takes the decision of who to save from the bottom three away from the coaches and places it into the nimble-hands of fans on Twitter.
First, Carson Daly revealed the contestants safe from elimination. In the first round of announcements, we learned that darling Caroline Pennell of Team Cee Lo was safe, as was Team Xtina’s Matthew Schuler. We’re shocked.
After the break, Team Cee Lo performs "Roam" by The B-52s, Carson slowly peels off two more band-aids. Safe? Austin Jenckes from Team Blake. We guess his appeal to his legions of country fans paid off. Well played, Blake. America also saved Tessanne Chin from Team Adam.
The guys of The Voice performed before Carson announced three more safe artists: Jacquie Lee from Team Xtina, Cole Vosbury from Team Blake, and Will Champlin from Team Blake. After the break and a performance by Team Adam, the final two safe contestants were revealed — Ray Boudreaux from Team Blake and James Wolpert from Team Adam. The Instant Save window was opened for five minutes, and we can't believe Kat Robichaud wasn't higher in the votes.
Are you happy with the outcome, or did the votes not fall where you wanted them to? Sound off below!
