The Voice’s season 19 live shows are in full swing, and with a batch of wildly talented singers, the competition is tight.
The Top 9 were revealed on Tuesday night’s (Dec. 1) episode, made up of the highest-voted artist on each team, one coach save on each team and one “Instant Save” from the remaining contestants.
From Kelly Clarkson’s team, America chose Desz, while Clarkson saved Cami Clune. Carter Rubin was voted into the Top 9 from Gwen Stefani’s team, and the “Hollaback Girl” chose Ben Allen for her save. On Team Blake Shelton, Ian Flanigan got the votes and Jim Ranger was saved, and on John Legend’s team, America chose John Holiday and Legend kept Tamara Jade.
Next came the nail-biting Instant Save. Team Kelly’s Tanner Gomes, Team Gwen’s Payge Turner, Team Blake’s Worth the Wait and Team Legend’s Bailey Rae all competed for the final Top 9 spot.
…and America chose Bailey Rae! The 18-year-old country singer took to Twitter to celebrate, writing, “Y’ALL!!!!!!! i can’t even believe this!! THANK YOU so much to @NBCTheVoice, @johnlegend and all of YOU for voting me through as the instant save winner!! i am beyond blessed!!!”
