The Voice Season 7 Top 12 Revealed!
“The Voice” Top 12 for season 7 was revealed on Wednesday in a special results show that followed this week’s live playoffs.
Based on America’s votes, host Carson Daly announced two artists who were automatically safe on each coach’s team of five singers. Of the three remaining contestants, it was up to the coach to choose whom to save. The other two would be eliminated. Needless to say, there was a lot of suspense and a few surprises.
Daly started with the results for Team Blake Shelton. Reagan James and Craig Wayne Boyd received the most votes to make it into the next round. That left Taylor Brashears, Jessie Pitts, and James David Carter in jeopardy. Shelton ultimately chose to keep Pitts and eliminated the other two artists.
Team Pharrell was up next. Luke Wade was the first to be declared safe, followed by DaNica Shirey. The new coach then selected to save Sugar Joans, thereby sending Elyjuh René and Jean Kelley home. Pharrell’s choice was a tough one. As Gossip Cop reported, Shelton said Joans gave the “best performance” on Tuesday’s show, while Adam Levine said René gave a “perfect” performance that made him the “frontrunner.” But Pharrell could only keep one of them, so there was really no right answer here.
Gwen Stefani’s team results followed Pharrell’s. Viewers’ votes sent Taylor John Williams and Anita Antoinette through. That left the No Doubt singer forced to pick between Ricky Manning, Bryana Salaz, and Ryan Sill. Stefani became emotional, even joking that she’s still breastfeeding and may cry, before ultimately saving Sill.
Lastly, it was time for Team Adam. Damien was the first name announced, followed by Matt McAndrew. Chris Jamison, Mia Pfirrman, Taylor Phelan were the only ones left to hear their fate, determined by Levine at the last second. He ultimately chose Jamison, saying he was going with his “gut.”
What do you think of the results? Next week, the full Top 12 will perform and the elimination will solely be in America’s voting hands.
