When we previewed the results for Tuesday night’s “The Voice” using iTunes sales as the primary indicator, it was pretty easy to draw one conclusion: Blake Shelton’s team was finally looking as though it would be short a member by the end of the night.
So did that finally happen? Early on in the episode, it was pretty clear that he was going to be in trouble. Both Michelle Chamuel (Team Usher) and Sasha Allen (Team Shakira) were declared safe after having some big nights on Monday, which left, following the obvious saving of longtime favorite Danielle Bradbery, a field of singers either on his team or that of Adam Levine. Basically, it was the battle of the young female country singers in Amber Carrington and Holly Tucker, and also the only guys left in The Swon Brothers.
If we had to send someone home based on last night, we’d say that it was Holly’s time to go. She has had a pretty phenomenal run to make it this far, but her performance quality, which does include more than just vocals, was not at the level last night as it was for the other singers. Given that Amber was declared safe, the battle quickly became between her and the brothers for survival. This seemed inevitable, and in the end, it was in fact Holly’s time to go. A graceful move was made as well by the Swons as they tried to console her.
We also had a performance tonight from reigning champ Cassadee Pope, who rocked out to new single “Wasting All These Tears.” Did you like it? Go pick up the song!
