On the April 24 live results show of “The Voice,” the bottom two vote getters among the Top 12 artists were, as we predicted, D.R. King and Rayshun LaMarr from Teams Kelly Clarkson and Adam Levine respectively. Each had to sing one more song to try and win votes cast by viewers via Twitter.
King was up first and tackled the 1973 song “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone,” which was a big hit and Grammy winner for The Temptations. Rolling Stone has it at #168 on its “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list. King connected with the lyrics but not the viewers and lost the Instant Save to LaMarr who did himself proud with his rendition of one of Tina Turner‘s signature songs, her 1984 cover of “I Can’t Stand the Rain.”
Those watching the show live in the Eastern and Central time zones knew when to vote via Twitter. Fans of either artist 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.
Do you think that LaMarr deserved the Instant Save more than King? Vote in our poll below and sound off in the comments section.
