Tuesday night on “The Voice,” country singer Pryor Baird from Team Blake Shelton was eliminated after being forced to sing for America’s instant save along with Britton Buchanan and Kaleb Lee. Pryor picked The Allman Brothers Band‘s “Soulshine” as his instant save song, but it didn’t excite America as much as Britton’s performance, so the Orcutt, California resident was voted out just one week before “The Voice” Season 14 finale. Watch Pryor’s final “The Voice” performance video above.
“I want to tell America that this is your guy right here,” Blake pleaded after Pryor’s powerful performance of “Soulshine.” “Did you just hear what I just heard? Listen man, I’ve gotta be honest. I’m surprised to see you in this position right now. It shows you we never really know what’s gonna happen on this show, we never do. You deserve to be in the finale. Please, America, put Pryor in the finale. We need this guy! Come on!”
Pryor’s other performances on “The Voice” so far have included “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Will It Go Round in Circles,” “I Was Wrong,” “9 to 5” and “Pickin’ Wildflowers,” “Night Moves,” “My Town” and “Change the World.” How does “Soulshine” stack up to Pryor’s former songs? Let us know down in the comments section.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger Denton Davidson summarized, “Without hesitation, Pryor belts out those soulful, raspy notes we’ve become accustomed to hearing from him. The man has serious pipes and I can’t imagine any Pryor fans could be disappointed with this performance. But will it be enough?”
