During The Voice’s live results show last night, a fan favorite contestant was sent packing. Team Cee Lo’s young, soulful singer Trevin Hunte didn’t garner enough votes to make it through to the Final 3, shocking all of the coaches, America, and even Carson Daly!

When Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the host with the most on the red carpet after the show, he admitted that he thought Trevin would be saved.

“I didn’t know how it was going to all come down ... I might have thought that Trevin was going to get saved, if I’m being completely honest with you,” he dished. “I’m not surprised that Nicholas is in the top three because he’s awesome, but just thinking about the fact that an R&B artist won these last few years, I was kind of thinking that maybe Trevin would have it.”

However, Carson is happy that America has the power this year, clearly loving the new twists The Voice brought on this season.

“More power to America — they have spoken and it’s great,” he added. “We have such good talent on the show, you can’t go wrong.”

And in addition to being talented, Carson told us that he appreciates the contestants for genuinely caring about music and not just craving fame.

“We’re not talking about somebody that stood in line at the Staples Center because they wanted to be on a singing competition to become famous,” he said. “We’re talking about people that care about music.”

Were you surprised at Trevin’s elimination? Sound off below!
