‘The Voice’: Which Team Kelly Clarkson artist was robbed of a place in the Top 12? [POLL]

In last winter’s season 13, the coaches on “The Voice” decided which three artists to take to the Top 12. With the current season 14, America got to decide two of these picks (Brynn Cartelli, Kaleb Lee) while each coach was limited to just one choice. New coach Kelly Clarkson was faced with a particularly tough decision as her four remaining artists each had merit. In the end, she went with D.R. King over Alexa Cappelli, Dylan Hartigan and Tish Haynes Keys.

Do you think she made a mistake? Below, read a brief recap of each of these three artists that didn’t make the grade with her in the Top 24 playoffs and then vote in our poll as to which was the most deserving to move on to the live shows. And be sure to sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on Clarkson and her team. (Weigh in on the other coach’s choices too: Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.)
