Last night, The Voice Top 10 took to the stage and delivered several superb performances.

Several artists such as Sawyer, Kimberly, India and Koryn put themselves far and away from the pack! Others such as the remaining members of Team Adam and Corey Kent White…dug their own graves with their abysmal performances.

But, whom did you vote for? Which artists had to duke it out for the Instant Save? Read on to find out…

Team Pharrell kicked off the night with their take on Gavin DeGraw’s “I Don’t Want to Be.” There were some moments that I wanted to scream: “Turn up the microphones, please!” The band nearly drowned them out, but Koryn shined throughout the song. While I enjoyed their take, I would listen or watch Bo Bice sing this track.

As Pharrell headed back to his chair, Carson revealed the first round of results! America saved Koryn Hawthorne (Team Pharrell) and Corey Kent White (Team Blake)—who unfairly stole a spot from one of the Bottom Three artists!

Before Carson revealed more results, it was announced that several former coaches would be returning to help out the teams! Both Pharrell and Christina will reunite with their friend, Gwen Stefani! Adam would team up with Usher, while Blake will work with fellow original coach: Cee Lo Green! They also sent love to Shakira, who could not be able to join in next week’s fun due to family commitments in Spain.

The second round of results revealed that both Sawyer and India Carney would experience Gwen Stefani’s magic. Before the other artists learned their fates, Reba took the stage and performed her hit single: “Going Out Like That” from Love Somebody! I really loved Reba’s performance and I hope that the country megastar returns to The Voice real soon.

As Reba mouthed “Good Luck” to the remaining artists as she walked off stage, Carson continued to deliver the results! Meghan Linsey (Team Blake) and Kimberly Nichole (Team Christina) were the next artists to learn that they were going to be mentored by CeeLo and Gwen next week!

If there were an award for worst team performance, I would give it to Team Adam! Their harmonies were so off that it made me cringe! They should have rehearsed Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker” more before the show went live. It was a complete and utter mess! Once Adam went back to his chair, it was time to reveal this week’s Bottom Three and the final artist that was saved by America’s votes! The final artist saved was Hannah Kirby!

This meant that Team Christina’s Rob Taylor and both Team Adam members Joshua Davis and Deanna Johnson had to sing for the save! Rob Taylor kicked off the evening with a powerful cover of Otis Redding’s “Sitting On The Docking Bay.” It was beautiful, lovely and outstanding! A

In all honesty, both Deanna and Joshua were lousy last night and did not deserve the save. Deanna’s “Save Me” was awful to my ears, while Joshua was a Phillip Phillips wannabe that butchered Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.

It is a shame that America is continuing to throw away amazing talent like Rob Taylor for a copycat such as Joshua Davis! He and Corey Kent White need to be eliminated next week!

Next Week, “The Voice” has a family reunion as former coaches CeeLo Green, Gwen Stefani and Usher return to Universal Studios Hollywood to advise the Top Eight!


  1. Joshua Davis is truly an original. #davisnation
