Last night, The Voice: Season 10 semifinalists fought for a place in next week’s finale!
At stake, a recording contract with Republic Records and the chance to join Cassadee Pope, Tessanne Chin, Josh Kauffman, Craig Wayne Boyd and Jordan Smith in the winner’s circle.
Which artists did America vote through to next week’s finale? Who had to fight for the last Instant Save of Season 10? Read on to find out…
After catching up with the coaches, Carson began to reveal the important results. The first finalist that made it to next week’s finale was Team Blake’s Adam Wakefield!
While Alicia left the stage, the show showed bloopers from Pink’s visit with the Top Eight. I hope that Pink joins The Voice family during Season 12 (with Xtina as a co-coach). Meanwhile, Carson revealed that the next artist that was voted through to the finale was Team Christina’s Alisan Porter! This marked the first time in three years that the Queen of The Voice will have a contestant in the finale, but it could also be the first time that Team Xtina wins the whole thing? This fanboy hopes so!
OneRepublic (lead by potential Adam Levine replacement Ryan Tedder) took to the stage to premiere their new single: “Whenever I Go.” It is a very catchy song, and I cannot wait for the band to drop their new album this year. As Carson teased the audience with the hope of new OneRepublic music in the fall, he also revealed that the last artist that made it to the finale was HANNAH HUSTON! Talk about an amazing turn of events! Congrats to Hannah and Pharrell!
With three artists and three coaches confirmed for next week’s finale, it was time to learn the Instant Save candidates. Team Blake’s Mary Sarah, Team Xtina’s Bryan Bautista and Team Adam’s Laith Al-Saadi were the final three that will fight for the final Instant Save.
As all four coaches hugged the eliminated Paxton Ingram and Shalyah Fearing, Mary Sarah performed Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” for her Save Me performance. In all honesty, it was a train wreck and once again…it was another Carrie Underwood impression and truly uninspiring. F
Team Christina’s Bryan Bautista tackled Miguel’s “Adorn.” It was a sturdy performance, and I think that Bryan has a bright career ahead of him after this season ends. I hope that LA Reid watched this performance because he should be on Epic Records. A- Laith Al-Saadi closed the final Instant Save with his interpretation of Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower.” Laith gave me chills from the first note that he strummed on his guitar, and I believe that he deserves to be in the next week’s season finale. A
The final recipient of the Instant Save and the last finalist was LAITH AL-SAADI! With Laith’s save, this marks the first time since Season Two that all four coaches will have an artist in the finale!
Next week, The Final Four fight to become the tenth winner of “The Voice”!
