Only 13 artists make it past the April 30 episode of ‘The Voice’! The top 24 is cut in half, with one artist also returning from the Comeback Stage during the live results show.
It’s results time on the April 30 episode of The Voice! The top 24 performed during the live playoffs on last night’s episode, and the EIGHT who received the majority of America’s votes will be automatically moving on, regardless of how many are selected from each coach’s team. Then, the four coaches will get to save ONE artist each, and the final two Comeback Stage artists will go head-to-head with live performances in hopes of earning the final spot in the top 13. The winner will be selected via an instant save, with viewers having just minutes to vote for their favorite on Twitter.
The first artist safe is Gyth Rigdon from Blake Shelton’s team, followed by Shawn Sounds from John Legend’s team and Carter Lloynd Horne, also from team Blake. Before getting to more results, Adam Levine hits the stage with his remaining four team members to sing “Is This Love” by Bob Marley, and it’s a super fun performance! Then, the next two singers saved by America are revealed: Rod Stokes from team Kelly Clarkson and Kim Cherry from team Blake.
Up next, Kelly hits the stage to perform her song, “Broken and Beautiful,” from her new animated movie, Ugly Dolls. As always, she sounds beyond incredible! The fun doesn’t last long, though, because it’s time to get to more results. Carson Daly reveals that Dexter Roberts frotm Blake’s team, Maelyn Jarmon from John’s team and Andrew Sevener from Blake’s team.
Next, Comeback Stage coach, Bebe Rexha, joins the show to reveal that she chose LB Crew to get a second chance in the competition after he was eliminated during the cross battles. To earn a spot in the top 13, though, he’ll have to go up against Kanard Thomas. Kanard was one of the zero-chair turns from the blind auditions who Bebe brought back for a second chance, and he fought his way through weeks of Comeback Stage performances to get on the live show.
Kanard and LB both give great live performances, with hopes of earning instant Twitter votes from America to get back on the show. The artist moving on is — LB! LB was a four chair turn during the blind auditions, and chose Adam as his coach. Unfortunately, he was eliminated during the live cross battles. LB gets to choose which team he wants to join now that he’s back on the show, and he decides to stick with Adam, who has no artists on his team at this point.
Now, each coach gets to save one of their remaining artists to complete their teams. Blake picks Oliv Blu, John saves Celia Babini, Kelly keeps Jej Vinson and Adam chooses Mari. That means the top 13 has six artists from team Blake, three singers from team John, and two from both of Kelly and Adam’s teams. The remaining contestants will sing again during the next episode on May 6!
