‘The Voice’ Recap: Top 3 Artists Revealed
Itâs been an exciting season of âThe Voiceâ so far, to say the very least. Tonightâs episode (Dec. 11) was both surprising and bittersweet, as one contestant was sent home while the other three remain.
Although Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera no longer have any singers left on the show, they are still passionately involved in the competition. âIâm so proud of these guys,â said Levine. âIâm genuinely happy and excited and thrilled for these four and all that theyâve accomplished.â Aguilera then stated, âThe four of us coming together as coaches, we truly care and are so invested in the song choices and who they wanna be as artists â¦ Itâs been a great show,” she gushed. “The pressureâs off of me, but no matter what, theyâre so talented and theyâve grown leaps and bounds.â
Team Blakeâs Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope kicked off the nightâs performances by singing a rendition of âLittle Talkâ by Of Monsters and Men. Not long after, Juliet Simms â a name you all might recognize from Season 2 of âThe Voiceâ â delivered âWild Child,â complete with an impressive black cape. The episode also featured performances by a few more of the showâs veterans, including âBoyfriendâ by RaeLynn and âRoadsâ by Chris Mann.
The four singers were incredibly humble when asked about their various musical inspirations. âFor me, it was hearing the Eagles and Queen and all of the greats â when you hear that music, it reminds you of the beginning,â said McDermott. âThe first music I listened to was Whitney Houston,â added Trevin Hunte. Pope then stated, âCertain melodies would make me cry, so it was just an emotional connection with me right off the bat.â
The show’s host, Carson Daly, used that vulnerable moment to his advantage and asked Pope, âHow do you find the connection to lyrics that other people have written?â Her response was as follows: âI put myself in their positions â¦ I think about all the obstacles they have to overcome. Even before my old band, I went through a lot â¦ I built myself a thicker skin and try to live in that moment.â
Team Cee Lo‘s Hunte and Nicholas David rounded out the episode by delivering a moving and heartfelt version of Mariah Careyâs âHero.â âYouâre both very special and very different,â remarked Levine in response to their performance. âIâve grown to know you as people and as talents and I was so wrong not to turn around for you guys.â
At this point, it’s clear that all four artists have won us over in one way or another. Check below to find out which contestants remain.

While weâre busy getting over the shock of Hunte being eliminated, Blake Shelton offered some hopeful words to his two remaining contestants. âItâs difficult to see two of my best people see pitted against each other,” he said. “You have my love, my respect, my admiration and my loyalty and I will be with both of you from this day forward. May the best man win.”
