Over the past two nights, The Voice: Season Seven Top 20 duked it out in hopes of advancing to the Top 12!
While America chose two artists to represent their coach, Adam, Blake, Gwen and Pharrell will decide which artist(s) get the final coveted spot on their teams.
Who moved on? Which fan-favorites were sent home in defeat? Read on to find out…
Team Blake united for one final time with Little Big Town’s “Life On The Northern Town.” The guys (Craig Wayne Boyd and James David Carter) produced great harmonies, while the ladies (Jessie Pitts, Taylor Brashears & Reagan James) stole hearts with their beautiful vocals. After Team Blake’s performance, it was time for the quintet to learn their fates!
America saved both Reagan James and Craig Wayne Boyd! Leaving Blake with a difficult decision to make between James, Jessie and Taylor. The three-time Voice winning coach stated that Jessie Pitts could thrive in the Live Rounds. With saved, it meant that both Taylor Brashears and James David Carter were eliminated!
Team Pharrell tackled Sam Smith’s “Money On The Mind.” Unlike Team Blake, everyone except for Luke Wade stood out and shined! However, the party known as The Voice: Season Seven was about to come to an end for two members of Team Pharrell! America chose Luke Wade (wrong decision, America! He was a huge weak link!) and DaNica Shirey (right decision, America!)! This left Elyjuh, Jean and Sugar in danger of leaving! However, the “Happy” singer had to select one singer and that singer was…Sugar Joans!!!
Team Gwen delivered an intriguing take on James Vance’s “Riptide.” Taylor John Williams, Anita Antoinette, and Ricky Manning showcased their vocal strengths, while both Ryan Sill and Bryana Salaz proved that they were dead weight on Team Gwen. America saved Taylor John Williams and Anita Antoinette (Nice work, gang!) This meant Ryan, Ricky and Bryana were in danger of leaving! However, Gwen made the worst decision in the competition as she eliminated both Ricky and Bryana!
Team Adam closed the night with “Am I Wrong?” The remaining lady of Team Adam (Mia) kicked off the song, while Matthew and Damien showcased excellent harmonies as Chris and Taylor joined the trio on stage. America voted Damien and Matthew McAndrew (I do not understand the hype with this artist!). Adam chose Chris Jamison over Mia and Taylor Phelan!
Next week, the Top 12 will perform!
