The top contestants from each team were put through and the bottom two artists had to sing for America’s votes. The winner of the bottom two artists was allowed to move on to the next round.
Read on for tonight’s winner results, spoilers and recap, as the show airs live.
‘The Voice’ Results Recap
Before jumping into results for the night, host Carson Daly told viewers that we’d see performances from Team Blake and and Team Legend. Daly also announced that Jake Hoot was the most streamed artist of the week, which gives Hoot a voting boost for the second week in a row.
After the preliminary announcements, Daly revealed which artists were the first to earn their spot in the top 10: Team Blake’s Ricky Duran and Team Legend’s Katie Kadan! Team Legend then takes the stage to perform a charming rendition of “How Deep Is Your Love.” Each member of the team held their own, but it was Will Breman and Marybeth Byrd who were the vocal standouts.
Daly hops back onstage to announce the next pair of artists who were voted into the top 10. They are Rose Short, the singing stalwart from Team Gwen, and Jake Hoot, who is on Team Kelly and has already netted the most votes for his cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.”
Gwen Stefani takes the stage to perform a medley of her biggest hits, including “Hollaback Girl” and “Rich Girl.” The latter even included a special guest appearance from rapper Eve. Stefani’s medley was inspired by the fifteenth anniversary of her debut album Love. Angel. Music. Baby., which dropped in 2004 and was certified three times platinum.
Daly follows up Stefani’s medley by naming two other artists who have joined the top 10! Will Breman, who has been a key member for Team Legend, has been voted through, as has Joana Martinez from Team Gwen. The latter is especially surprising, given that Gold Derby and Newsweek both predicted Martinez as a candidate for elimination.
Team Blake is the next crew to take the stage, and they perform a blistering cover of “Taking Care of Business.” Ricky Duran nailed the song, as its raucous tone suited his vocals, but Kat Hammock fared a little worse. She held her own, but it’s clear that Bachman-Turner Overdrive is out of Hammock’s comfort zone.
Daly reveals the final voting results of the night. He announces that Team Legend’s Marybeth Byrd, Team Blake’s Kat Hammock and Team Kelly’s Hello Sunday are all safe from elimination. The latter comes as no surprise, given that the duo have been one of the most popular acts of the season. That leaves two artists to square off for the tenth spot: Shane Q and Myracle Holloway.
Who Got Eliminated on ‘The Voice’ Tonight?
Shane Q is the first artist to take the stage during the elimination round. He sings a cover of “Jesus,” and it’s a credit to Shane that he delivers one of his best performances of the season. He not only nailed the vocal aspects of the song, but he displayed the charisma and stage presence that has been lacking at crucial moments during his journey. Holloway is going to have to bring it.
Holloway follows Shane Q, and gives a staggering rendition of “You Are So Beautiful.” She absolutely crushes the emotional delicacy of the song, and her impassioned vocals bring it to new heights before the audience. Holloway had a tall order following Shane, but she more than delivers with a performance every bit as good.
Voting results rolled in during the commercial break, and they indicate that Shane had the final edge over Holloway. The former received 53% of the vote, and the latter was eliminated with 47%. Shane Q claims the final spot in the top 10.
Tune in each week on Monday and Tuesday nights, at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT, on NBC to watch The Voice. And, the season 17 finale will air on December 16, 2019.
