Tuesday night on “The Voice,” Brynn Cartelli and Jamella represented Team Kelly Clarkson during the second knockout round episode of Season 14. Fourteen-year-old Brynn sang Rascal Flatts‘ “Here Comes Goodbye,” while pop/R&B singer Jamella took on Little Big Town‘s “Girl Crush.” After both artists performed Kelly chose to advance Brynn to the next round, thereby eliminating Jamella from the reality TV singing competition. Do YOU think coach Kelly made the right decision? Watch “The Voice” performance video above.
“Brynn, I was so excited by the song choice, even to attack a song with [Rascal Flatts’] vocal,” Kelly said before making her decision. “This is insane, you both did a great job. The winner of this knockout is Brynn.” Kelly later expanded upon her choice, revealing, “Brynn has something really strong and super unique. Brynn will be the youngest person ever to win this show. I didn’t say ‘could,’ I said ‘will.'”
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger Denton Davidson wrote, “Brynn is up first wearing an elegant orange dress and sounding more mature than a 14-year old should. Her poise is striking, but she does have moments where her pitch wavers. Overall, the performance was just okay for me but the coaches look blown away by this youngster.”
Former “The Voice” champ Cassadee Pope was on hand to mentor the remaining artists on Team Kelly, while other winners helped out the rest of the coaches.

Blind auditions and battle rounds aired for the first 10 episodes of “The Voice” Season 14, with the knockout rounds taking pace during the first two weeks of April 2018.
