On Tuesday’s edition of “The Voice,” the bottom three vote-getters among the Top 10 artists were Mark Isaiah and Lilli Passero from Team Adam Levine and Vanessa Ferguson of Team Alicia Keys. Each had to sing one more song to try and win votes cast by viewers via Twitter.
Passero was up first and tackled “Stormy Weather,” the 1933 torch song that became the signature tune for Lena Horne. While Passero did a good job, her decision to go old school has not worked so far in this competition.
Isaiah, who was in the bottom two for the past two weeks running, did himself proud with his rendition of “Sorry,” a 2015 number one for Justin Bieber. Isaiah, a longtime fan of the Canadian singer, connected with the lyrics and the viewers.
Ferguson was the last of the three to sing and mopped the floor with the other two. She wowed the crowd with her rendition of “For Once in My Life,” the 1966 Motown tune that was a huge hit for Stevie Wonder the following year.
Those watching the show live in the Eastern and Central time zones knew when to vote via Twitter. Fans of these artists in the rest of the country had to rely on social media if they wanted to weigh in with their pick, albeit without having seen the performances. Ferguson was first with 44% of the vote, followed by Isaiah at 38% and Passero with 18%.
