8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘The Voice’!” In the 21st episode, the Top 10 performed in this order: Holly Forbes (“Last Dance”), Wendy Moten (“Jolene”), Jeremy Rosado (“Freedom Was a Highway”), Jershika Maple (“Ain’t It Fun”), Lana Scott (“The One That Got Away”), Joshua Vacanti (“If I Ain’t Got You”), Jim & Sasha Allen (“Stay”), Paris Winningham (“Amazed”), Hailey Mia (“Peter Pan”) and Girl Named Tom (“Viva la Vida”). Which two artists will be going home tonight? Let’s go!
8:02 p.m. – The first step in narrowing down to next week’s semi-finals was Carson announcing the first two artists advancing to the top 8: Team Blake’s Paris Winningham and Team Ariana’s Jim & Sasha Allen.
8:07 p.m. – Former coach Gwen Stefani stopped by to introduce her winner Carter Rubin as he debuted his new song “Horoscope.” He kept the performance scaled back with just him on stage, but it was really nice because it centered his pure, soft voice.
8:13 p.m. – After some behind-the-scenes footage of the coaches on set, Carson returned to the results to reveal that Girl Named Tom from Team Kelly was also put through by America.
8:21 p.m. – The next set of artists saved by America’s vote and making the semi-finals was: Team Blake’s Wendy Moten and Team Legend’s Joshua Vacanti.
8:29 p.m. – Before finding out the final artists to avoid singing for the Save, Mae Muller performed her song “Better Days” featuring NEIKED and Polo G.
8:32 p.m. – From the remaining five artists awaiting their results, the two artists advancing next to the semi-finals was: Team Blake’s Lana Scott and Team Kelly’s Hailey Mia.
8:40 p.m. – In the three-way heat to earn the Instant Save, Jeremy Rosado sang “What Hurts the Most” by Rascal Flatts. Blake liked that Jeremy went with a country song again, acknowledging that it’s only the depth of talent this season that has landed him in the bottom three. Kelly called the song a great choice because it shows how dynamic he can be as a vocalist.
8:43 p.m. – For her chance to earn the save, Holly Forbes sang Kelly’s ballad “Because of You.” Blake called it a great song choice, adding that he was surprised to see her specifically in the bottom this week because he’s seen her as a finalist all along. He thinks this performance of hers will save her. Ariana also said that her vulnerability tonight doesn’t make sense because she’s been a “vocal titan.”
8:47 p.m. – The final save performance was Jershika Maple on “What Is Love” by the Empire cast. John said she’s been one of the best people across the season and that this performance was powerful, emotional and technically perfect and was her best so far.
8:55 p.m. – Following the vote in the Instant Save, only one of the three artists qualified for the top 8 and that was Jershika! That means Jeremy and Holly were eliminated.
