There will be some sort of shocking element in every elimination round of "The Voice" season 7 hereafter, as all the remaining contestants are talented, and the results of Live Playoffs tell just that with some of the most brilliant artistes being sent home.
The top 20 contestants consisting of five each from Team Pherrell, Team Gwen, Team Blake and Team Adam hit the stage on Monday and Tuesday with the hope of finding a place in the Live Shows but only 12 of them made it.
Public chose two contestants from each team through voting and each coach saved one from the bottom three.
Here is a list of contestants who made it to the next round and who failed:
- America saved Reagan James and Craig Wayne Boyd
- Blake saved Jessie Pitts
- Taylor Brashears and James David Carter were eliminated
- America saved Luke Wade and DaNica Shirey
- Pherrell saved Sugar Joans
- Jean Kelley and Elyjuh Rene were eliminated
-America saved Taylor John Williams and Anita Antoinette
- Gwen saved Ryan Sill
- Bryana Salaz and Ricky Manning were eliminated
- America saved Damien and Matt McAndrew
- Adam saved Chris Jamison
- Mia Pfirrman and Taylor Phelan were eliminated
Some made it to the Live Shows, while some didn't, but elimination of Rene and Salaz might come as a shock to many after their impressive performance in the Live Playoffs.
What was even more shocking was the fact that their coaches didn't save them after showering heaps of praises for their last performance.
Rene sang the song "Latch" by Sam Smith in the Live Playoffs and nailed it. In short, it was a sensational performance with an excellent control. His coach Pherrell and other coaches were all excited after his song, but fate was against him. America didn't save him, and his coach turned his back by choosing Sugar Joans.
Salaz of Team Gwen was another contestant who gave a good performance in the Live Playoffs yet failed to make it to the next round. She sang the song, "Amnesia" by 5 Seconds of Summer on Tuesday and was a good rendition filled with emotions. Coaches praised her but she failed to advance to the Live Shows starting next week.
