The crop of contestants is dwindling down on Season 10 of ‘The Voice,’ and after the April 26 episode, we’re down to just 10. Read our full recap of the live results show to find out which to artists were forced to sing for America’s Instant Save and which one was ultimately sent home!
Even after a night of incredible performances all around, one person was still be sent home on the April 26 episode of The Voice. So, was it Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton or Pharrell who lost an artist? Read our recap to find out everything that went down in the intense elimination episode here!
To kick the night off, country singer Thomas Rhett takes the stage to perform his new single “T-Shirt,”and it’s the perfect way to get things started! But immediately after the performance, it’s down to business, as Carson Daly get right into the first round of results.
The first two artists saved and moving onto the Top 10 are Mary Sarah, from Team Blake, and Nick Hagelin from Team Christina. In case you forgot, Nick was eliminated in the Knockout Rounds and brought back by Xtina in the Live Playoffs, so this is another huge step for him!
After the coaches taunt each other and praise their teams, it’s time to reveal some more results. Carson announces that Adam’s contestant Laith Al-Saadi is moving onto the Top 10, along with Christina’s artist Alisan Porter, who has been a front runner throughout this season.
Taking a quick break from the intense build-up to eliminations, Pharrell joins his remaining team members, Daniel Passino and Hannah Huston, on stage. The trio sings Lenny Kravitz’s “Let Love Rule” and it’s absolutely incredible! Seriously, it would be totally wrong if either of these singers goes home tonight.
Time to get back to business, though, as Carson gathers the seven contestants still waiting to hear their fate. This time, it’s Hannah Huston, from Pharrell’s team, and Paxton Ingram, from Blake’s team, who are announced to be moving on, leaving just five left in jeopardy.
Christina takes the stage next with her contestants, Alisan, Nick and Bryan Bautista, and they perform an epic rendition of “Live And Let Die.” Seriously, it’s not easy to keep up with Christina’s incredible vocals, but all three singers are able to do just that. HOW?!
After we get a glimpse at what goes on behind the scenes in a quick montage clip, Carson gets back to reading the results. He reveals that Shalyah Fearing (Team Adam), Adam Wakefield (Team Blake) and Bryan Bautista (Team Christina) got enough viewer votes to advance to the Top 10, leaving Adam’s Owen Danoff and Pharrell’s comeback artist, Daniel Passino, as the bottom 2.
Owen is no stranger to this position, as he fought back to win America’s Instant Save after falling at the bottom last week, too. The guys will each get to sing one song before the viewers have a five minute window to vote for their favorite on Twitter, determining who will move on.
Daniel sings first, and his performance of “Jealous” by Nick Jonas is absolute perfection. Those high notes are out of control, and he does the perfect job at not overdoing it! Owen is tough competition, though, and also kills it, despite briefly forgetting some lyrics, when he takes the stage to sing an emotional rendition of “Burning House” by Cam.
Ultimately, though, it’s Daniel who gets the majority of Twitter votes, sending Owen home and leaving Adam with just two contestants remaining in the competition.
Here’s where the coaches teams stand after tonight’s episode:
Christina: Nick Hagelin, Alisan Porter, Bryan Bautista
Adam: Laith Al-Saadi, Shalyah Fearing
Blake: Mary Sarah, Paxton Ingram, Adam Wakefield
Pharrell: Hannah Huston, Daniel Passino
