And now make your comments below and keep refreshing for our full live updating blog recap for Live Playoffs Results Night on Tuesday, November 12:
8:00 p.m. – Tonight the top 2 from each team is going to automatically advance with each coach getting to save a third. Then of the remaining two artists on each team the one with the most votes from last night will all sing once more for a wild card save to become the 13th artist to advance.
8:02 p.m. – The two artists to advance from Team Blake based on the overnight votes were: Ricky Duran and Kat Hammock!
8:04 p.m. – With three artists left in front of him Blake was asked to save only one of them to directly add to the Top 13. He picked Cali Wilson!
8:07 p.m. – Next up to hear their results was Team Gwen. The two that advanced based on the public vote were: Rose Short and Joana Martinez!
8:09 p.m. – And then Gwen’s save went to Myracle Holloway!
8:11 p.m. – On Team Kelly the two artists that America saved were: Max Boyle and Jake Hoot!
8:13 p.m. – The artist that Kelly chose to send through was her “chameleon” Shane Q!
8:20 p.m. – Before the results of his team, Blake announced, as the reigning People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive, for the first time that John is this year’s Sexiest Man Alive. We all agree that’s well earned, right? Right. Bow down!
8:22 p.m. – And finally the two artists that advanced from Team Sexiest Man Alive were: Katie Kadan and Marybeth Byrd!
8:24 p.m. – John added to the Top 13 his choice Will Breman for his “charisma and electricity”!
8:26 p.m. – Next Carson announced the four artists that will sing for the first ever wild card save. From Team Blake it was Gracee Shriver, which means we say goodbye to Ricky Braddy. From Team Gwen it was Jake HaldenVang, so we said goodbye to Kyndal Inskeep. From Team Kelly it was Hello Sunday, which means it was goodbye to Damali. And from Team Legend it was Alex Guthrie, so it was the end of the road for Khalea Lynee.
8:34 p.m. – Team Blake’s Gracee began the wild card round with her rendition of “Landslide.” The song is well-suited for her and I thought she brought a nice country twang to it that you don’t even necessarily hear in the Dixie Chicks version.
8:36 p.m. – Next up was Team Gwen’s Jake with “Nothing Holding Me Back.” This uptempo contemporary song was a much better choice for him and probably should have been his song last night instead of the Adele. I think with his style he should stick to doing stuff in his wheelhouse really well instead of attempting to turn anything on its head.
8:45 p.m. – After the commercial break we heard “All By Myself” from Hello Sunday of Team Kelly. It was a big song choice from them, and a rather dated one as well, but as a duet they actually managed to tone it down to their level and make it their own in a special way. I think they could be a major threat in the competition if they picked songs that suited their ages better though.
8:47 p.m. – The last wild card performance was Team Legend’s Alex with “Stay.” It was a perfect song choice and great presentation from him–I’d say the best of the four by far. He tapped into the lyric emotionally and conveyed that through his performance.
8:59 p.m. – After the 5-minute voting window Carson announced that the 13th artist to move on to next week’s live performance show was Hello Sunday from Team Kelly!
