“The Voice” officially has its top five artists of season 20. On Monday, viewers got to see nine contestants perform. And on Tuesday, host Carson Daly revealed which singers from each of the coaches’ teams received the most votes, pushing them ahead to the finale.
Victor Solomon’s powerful rendition of Tamela Mann’s version of the gospel song “I Can Only Imagine” moved him to the finale.
Team Clarkson’s Kenzi Wheeler advanced after singing George Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” to tribute his mother. Rachel Mac of Team Jonas also earned herself a spot in the finale. She performed a tearful rendition of Christina Perri’s “Human.”
Team Shelton’s Cam Anthony also gets to move along after viewers saw his stripped-down version of Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.”
The remaining five, Pia Renee (Legend), Gihanna Zoë (Clarkson), Corey Ward (Clarkson), Dana Monique (Jonas), and Jordan Matthew Young (Shelton), fought for their lives during the Instant Save segment in hopes of claiming the last spot in the finale.
Renee sang Billie Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted.” Ward, who claimed the Instant Save last week, lent his voice to Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris.”
Monique showed off her powerful chops with Anita Baker’s “Caught Up in the Rapture.” Young highlighted his signature voice on Uncle Kracker’s “Drift Away.” Finally, Zoë gave it her all during her rendition of Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved.”
Daly noted that America had a “tough choice tonight for the Instant Save.” With no more coaches’ saves up for grabs, it was up to the nation to decide. A five-minute flash round of voting decided the winner.
Familiar Faces Set To Return For ‘The Voice’ Finale
When all was said and done, Young earned himself a spot in the finals. “I can’t believe it,” Young said after it was revealed he was moving forward. To his coach Shelton, Young humbly said, “Thank you so much for just letting me by myself. I’ve always felt like an underdog.”
As a way to celebrate the show’s tenth anniversary this year, some familiar faces will be returning for the finale.
In addition to this season’s coaches, the two-night finale event will feature performances from various artists including former panelists. Adam Levine will return to the stage as his band, Maroon 5, performs their latest single, “Beautiful Mistakes.”
Gwen Stefani will also be back. She and Saweetie perform their hit single, “Slow Clap,” off of her upcoming fifth solo album. Her fiancee, Blake Shelton, will also take the stage with his latest single, “Minimum Wage.”
