It’s elimination night on The Voice (Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) and that means it’s time to say goodbye. But before we say goodbye, we have to kill time with performances and drawn out announcements. No one knows how to stretch a silence like Carson Daily.
Coaches Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine were on hand to perform, gush over their contestants, and help fill an hour before breaking someone’s hopes and dreams.
Last night’s performance already resulted in a number one track for Chloe Kohanski, whose cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” hit number one on iTunes. At this point in the competition it’s not the worst singer going home, but the least amazing.
Miley and her quest to make Herstory included doing Canadian kween Shania Twain proud with a cover of “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.” The leopard print is actually more appropriate for “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” but we’ll take whatever Shania we can get.
Team Adam reminded everyone that they’re the folk rockers in this competition by performing Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way.” It was fun, but no coordinating outfits. They lose points for that.
Blake performed his new single “I’ll Name The Dogs,” which is a much better song than its name lets on. He was joined by Jennifer Hudson, who needs to sing every five minutes or else an angel doesn’t get its wings. If you’ve ever wondered what the ‘country’ version of J Hud looks like, it’s the same sequined jumpsuit you’d expect but with a denim jacket awkwardly paired on top.
First round of safe singers: Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake) and Addison Agen (Team Adam)
Second round of safe singers: Brooke Simpson (Team Miley) and Davon Fleming (Team Jennifer)
Third round of safe singers: Red Marlow (Team Blake) and Noah Mac (Team J Hud)
Fourth round of safe singers: Ashland Craft (Team Miley), Keisha Renee (Team Blake) and Shi’Ann Jones (Team J Hud)
Adam Cunningham and Janice Freeman (what?!) had to sing for their lives and try to score an instant save and while we weren’t surprised to see Adam in the bottom again, both because his performance yesterday wasn’t on par with the other singers and because he was in the bottom two last week… Janice in the bottom two?
Are you kidding us? Are. You. Kidding. Us. Adam’s performance was pretty standard fair and unfortunately Janice’s performance wasn’t her strongest, but even Janice at 50 per cent is still more than enough to advance.
Or so we thought. Once again, Adam Cunningham earned the Instant Save. If you need us for the next week we’ll be crying over Janice’s untimely exit.
