“The Voice” took a sexy turn Tuesday night (November 19).
As the top 10 awaited to hear their fate, Team Christina came together to show off their “Bad” side. Led by their tough and extremely svelte mama, Jacquie Lee and Matthew Schuler let ’er rip with a dramatic medley of Michael Jackson’s hits. The young artists held their own alongside Aguilera, who owned the stage and proved why she’s a pop diva.
Amidst the nail biting, though, the show always makes sure to throw in some fun, light elements. During Tuesday’s Voice confessional, we learned about everyone’s most embarrassing moments, including Cee Lo Green’s pants falling during a performance on Dave Chappelle’s show and guest mentor Miguel’s infamous fall off the stage at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
In bigger news, it was also revealed that Adam Levine is People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2013. “I think you’re beautiful for what’s on the inside,” Shelton said to the Maroon 5 frontman, who was humbled by the announcement. Their bromance captured the hearts of the other coaches who all came together for a group hug. Aw.
Now that all the formalities were behind them, the show proceeded with the task at hand. The first saves were announced and the artists with the most votes were Team Adam’s James Wolpert and Team Christina’s Matthew Schuler, who received the good news just shy of his 21st birthday.
The first group performance then brought together rockers Wolpert, Kat Robichaud and Will Champlin, who took on “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” The energetic musicians gave it their all and, luckily, Champlin got to indulge in an extra little moment of happiness when he and Team Blake’s Ray Boudreax were also saved.
The bromance quickly turned into a broformance as the all-male Team Blake came together with their coach to show the ladies they were each a “Sharp Dressed Man.” Shelton’s soul singing men harmonized perfectly, but Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin and Team Christina’s Jacquie Lee were revealed as the next saves, leaving Austin Jenckes and Cole Vosbury in the dust.
After Chin and America’s sweetheart Caroline Pennell performed an uber-cool rendition of Lorde’s hit song “Royals,” Vosbury sighed a breath of relief after he was saved.
That left all of Team Cee Lo (Kat Robichaud and Caroline Pennell) and Shelton’s Austin Jenckes in the bottom three, with only one save. Robichaud was saved last week but could she do it again? Unfortunately, no. This week the Twitterverse showed their resounding support for Pennell, who was in near-tears after her surprise placing.
While it’s the end of the road for Kat Robichaud and Austin Jenckes on “The Voice,” that means the following are the top 8:
