According to your very own predictions, Blake Shelton did the unthinkable on Tuesday’s knockout round of “The Voice.” He kicked country singer Cody Wickline off the NBC reality show in the evening’s first battle.
In last week’s poll (see link below), you predicted overwhelmingly that Wickline would be Shelton’s champ for this season. On Tuesday, he faced off with the song “Til My Last Day” (Justin Moore) against fellow country artist Cory Kent White, who sang “Live Like You Were Dying” (Tim McGraw). Team Blake will move forward with White since no rival coach used a steal on Wickline.
During these knockout rounds this week and next, each coach has Nate Ruess (.fun) as an advisor and one steal to save a performer from elimination. Both Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams used up their only remaining steals for this season on Monday. That left just Christina Aguilera and Shelton with a steal each.
In the other two battles on a shortened one-hour Tuesday episode:
Deanna Johnson performed “Listen to Your Heart” (Roxette) to defeat Blaze Johnson singing “You Found Me” (The Fray) for Team Christina.
For Team Pharrell, Caitlin Caporale was the winner with “Warrior” (Demi Lovato) over Hannah Kirby with “Higher Love” (Steve Winwood). Shelton then jumped in to save Kirby.
The final knockout rounds will air next week, and then on to the live shows with the top 20 artists the following week.
