Another batch of four aspiring superstars, this time from Team Adam and Team Cee Lo, were eliminated on Tuesday night (April 10) during the second week of live shows on “The Voice.”
It was only 24 hours earlier that 12 contestants from the two teams battled it out before America and the judges to score a spot in the competition’s quarterfinals, which begin next week. Host Carson Daly was quick to announce (in random order) the three hopefuls from each team who scored the most votes, leaving the remaining group of contestants to battle it out in an effort to nab a “save” from their mentor.
Free from the chopping block on Team Adam included Mathai, Tony Lucca and Pip. It was the trio of K’s (Katrina Parker, Kim Yarbrough and Karla Davis) who were left to duke it out against for Adam’s save.
With new tunes and desire to win, Yarbrough continued to prove her belting strengths on Jennifer Hudson’s “Spotlight,” while Karla Davis opted to slow it down with Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Ultimately, it wasn’t too difficult to guess who Adam saved when Christina, Blake and Cee Lo all opted for Katrina and her rendition of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak.”
“Rather than have it be a long, drawn-out thing. I’m not gonna be emotional about this decision,” the Maroon 5 frontman said. “Katrina, you’re the winner.”
Up next was the announcement from Daly that Juliet Simms, Jamar Rogers and James Massone had all received the most votes from the viewers at home, landing Tony Vincent, Cheesa and Erin Martin at the bottom of the totem pole and up for elimination.
Before you knew it, the sing-off was under way once again. Vincent brought mystique to his performance of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” but viewers saw Cheesa earn immediate praise for her cover of Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” with an immediate nod of approval from Cee Lo after the number. Erin Martin’s rendition of Ellie Goulding’s “Your Song” was acceptable, but not enough to overthrow the panel’s unanimous love of Cheesa.
Before all the eliminations even went down, “The Voice” welcomed Jessie J early into the broadcast, where the British belter brought fans in the audience to their feet with her hit “Domino,” with the help of Team Christina.
