The US presidential elections spoilt The Voice Season 11 (USA) 2016 Playoffs to some extent as the episode was cut short. Live Playoff usually runs for two days – live performance night and elimination episode – but the results were declared on the day of performance because of the elections.
The top 20 contestants performed live on Monday night. A total of 12 singers progressed to the next round, while eight of them were sent home. The audience chose two contestants each from each team through real-time voting via Twitter and the Voice app, while the coaches -- Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton -- chose one from among the rest. Each coach will go to the next round of competition with three artistes.
Here is complete list of top 12 contestants:
Billy Gilman – performed "Crying" by Roy Orbison in the Playoffs
Josh Gallagher – performed "Colder Weather" by Zac Brown Band this week
Brendan Fletcher - rendered "To Love Somebody" by Bee Gees
Christian Cuevas – performed "Yesterday" by the Beatles
Wé McDonald – performed "Home" by Stephanie Mills
Sa'Rayah – performed "I'd Rather Go Blind" by Etta James
Aaron Gibson – performed "Round Here" by Counting Crows
Ali Caldwell – performed "Times Have Changed" by Irma Thomas
Darby Walker – performed "Those Were the Days" by Mary Hopkin
Sundance Head – performed "Blue Ain't Your Color" by Keith Urban in the playoffs
Austin Allsup – rendered "I Ain't Living Long Like This" by Waylon Jennings
Courtney Harrell - performed "It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette
