‘The Voice’ Results Recap: Welp, Who Saw That Coming?

The Voice kicked off with a performance by coach Pharrell Williams and his team. The group sang the Gavin DeGraw single, “I Don’t Want To Be”. The title had special meaning for the remaining Top 10, who certainly didn’t want to leave the show tonight. Following the song, Voice host Carson Daly got right to business.

The first to be saved was Koryn Hawthorne. Her cover of “Make It Rain” on The Voice last night made a huge impression. She’s officially a front-runner at the moment. Another surprise was the early announcement that Corey Kent White was safe. Some may not have expected this considering his song was fairly low on the iTunes chart, but the Voice‘s country music voting block is loyal and dedicated to their artists. With Koryn and Corey coming out on top, The Voice seemed destined to produce yet another shocking elimination.

Next to be saved was Sawyer Fredericks, which meant that the remaining members of Team Pharrell were through to the Top 8. Team Christina’s India Carney will feature on The Voice next week after America voted her through. She expressed fear of performing “Run To You” by Whitney Houston, but fortunately for Carney, the Voice audience was receptive.

A performance by guest judge Reba McIntyre helped to break up the tension, but only slightly. She performed her new single, “Going Out Like That” and it’s clear that the 50-year-old country music star remains at the top of her game.

Meghan Linsey was the second member of Team Blake to be saved and Kimberly Nichole the second member of Team Christina to move forward on The Voice. Things weren’t looking good for Team Adam at this stage, as he was the only coach without a single member put through to the Top 8.

The very last person to be announced as safe from elimination was Hannah Kirby. This pretty much meant that the previous prediction as to who would be in the Bottom 3 was correct.

With Deanna Johnson and Joshua Davis forced to sing for their lives, Adam would be losing at least one person no matter what. It also meant that Team Christina was in danger of losing a member.

In the end, it was Deanna Johnson and Rob Taylor who left The Voice, with Joshua Davis earning the instant save.

With shocking elimination after shocking elimination thus far during Season 8, it’s beginning to look as if no one is really safe. The Top 8 is destined to be highly competitive.

Do you agree with The Voice eliminations that went down tonight? Who do you think should have gone home?
