And then there were eight. Singing competition “The Voice” sent two more contestants packing Tuesday night (November 20), saying so long to Team Christina member Sylvia Yacoub and Team Adam member Bryan Keith.
Despite high marks from the judges, America evidently wasn’t in love with Yacoub’s performance of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” or Keith’s version of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind.”
On a happier note, the show served up a pre-Thanksgiving treat Tuesday that was full of live performances. The evening opened with a performance from Team Christina that included the diva herself. Aguilera, who was sporting a newly shorn blond bob with black-dyed tips, was joined by Yacoub and Dez Duron in an energetic performance of “Let There Be Love,” a brand-new song from her latest album, Lotus.
Other performance highlights included an appearance by best-selling country group Rascal Flatts, who were joined by Team Blake’s Cassadee Pope and Team Cee Lo member Cody Belew, and a Team Adam performance of the Queen classic “A Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” with the bonus vocals of Levine himself. We were also treated to an extra helping of Team Christina and Team Blake singing “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” thanks to an online in-show vote on Twitter in which fans watching the show at home were given the option to tweet votes for a performance of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me” or Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.”
