We asked you which team performed better on Tuesday’s episode of “The Voice” and you picked Team Miley Cyrus by a two-to-one margin over Team Adam Levine. The results show doesn’t include individual performances from the contestants. Rather, those being mentored by two of the four coaches join them in song.
Cyrus and her three proteges, Darby Caldwell, Aaron Gibson and Ali Walker, sang “There’ll Always Be Music” with Cyrus. Dolly Parton penned this tune for “Love & Music,” her tenth duet album with Porter Wagoner that was released in 1973. The team’s voices blended well together at times and each contestant had a moment in the spotlight.
Levin and the trio of men on his team — Brendan Fletcher, Josh Gallagher and Billy Gilman — performed “For What It’s Worth.” Fletcher, Gallagher and Levine all played guitar on this tune that dates back to 1967. Stephen Stills wrote it for his group Buffalo Springfield. The single, from their self-titled debut album, peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
A few minutes after performing, Gibson found himself in the bottom two as did Sa’Rayah. Her coach, Alicia Keys, had not included any of her three acts when she sang a medley of her new single “Blended Family” and “Holy War.” Both tracks are from her chart-topping album “Here.” Keys went solo, accompanying herself on the piano with another coach, Levine, joining her on guitar.
Gibson pulled off an upset, winning the Instant Save over Sa’Rayah. He delivered an emotional version of “Lego House” while she rocked with “Rock Steady.” Perhaps Gibson’s extra exposure with Cyrus was the edge he needed to survive the sing-off and make it into the Top 11.
