Five artists wiped out on Tuesday night’s episode of "The Voice" in one single mass elimination. That means the NBC reality show now has its final four performers ready to compete in the finale next week: Jeffery Austin, Barrett Baber, Emily Ann Roberts, and Jordan Smith.
Here is how the results show operated:
Three artists were immediately declared safe based on audience voting the previous 24 hours. They were Smith, Roberts, and Baber.
The middle three — Austin, Madi Davis, and Zach Seabaugh — performed near the end of the program going for an instant save on social media from the home audience. Austin was the one to advance. Austin sang "Make It Rain." Davis performed "Don't Dream It's Over." Seabaugh took on "Live Like You Were Dying."
