It’s official — we finally know our Semifinalists on Season 11 of ‘The Voice.’ Unfortunately, that meant two singers were sent home on the Nov. 29 results show, leaving eight still in the competition. Find out who was eliminated & more in our recap here!
To kick off the show, the remaining 10 contestants on The Voice take the stage with Dolly Parton and Jennifer Nettles to sing the song “Circle Of Love” from the ladies’ special holiday movie, and it’s simply breathtaking. Time to start announcing the results, though: Carson Daly reveals that America’s votes put Brendan Fletcher, from Team Adam Levine, and Sundance Head, from Team Blake Shelton, through to next week’s Semifinals.
The next singers to be called safe are Christian Cuevas, from Alicia Keys’ team, and Ali Caldwell from Miley Cyrus’ team. So, at the very least, all four coaches know they have an artist in the Top 8! After a commercial break, Carson announces that Billy Gilman (Team Adam) and We McDonald (Team Alicia) are moving on, as well.
It’s time for a quick break from the results for a special performance, as Miley joins Dolly and the a cappella group, Pentatonix, onstage for a rendition of “Jolene” that’s absolute perfection! Things get intense quickly, though, as the final Semifinalist — Josh Gallagher from Team Adam — is revealed, meaning Austin Allsup (Team Blake), Courtney Harrell (Team Blake) and Aaron Gibson (Team Miley) are this week’s Bottom 3 and must perform to be Instantly Save by America.
Austin is up first, and gives an amazing rendition of “Tennessee Whiskey” that allows him to show off his country/rock sound perfectly. Next, Courtney gives her last chance performance of “Bless The Broken Road,” keeping it fairly soft until a powerful moment at the end that has the crowd cheering loudly. Finally, Aaron, who’s been Instantly Saved after landing in the bottom two weeks in a row, takes center stage to sing “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright,” and the simple, acoustic performance is just what fans love from him.
It all comes down to America’s decision on Twitter, though, and after a super close vote, it’s revealed that Aaron is moving on, sending Austin and Courtney home. WOW — three weeks in a row for Aaron! That means that Blake loses two contestants this week, but he’ll still have Sundance on his team for the Semifinals. Meanwhile, Miley and Alicia each have two singers left and Adam has all three.
