It was a bad night for the two new coaches on The Voice. Shakira and Usher, both new additions to the coaching panel for season four, each lost a member of their teams when the results were read during the live elimination show last night (May 14).
Receiving the elimination news on Team Usher was r&b singer Vedo. Just the week before, Vedo made the top 12 when he was saved by America’s votes along with aspiring electro artist Michelle Chamuel. This makes his elimination a bit of a surprise.
Less of a surprise is the elimination of singer Garrett Gardner. Last week, the artist from team Shakira was picked by his coach to move on to the top 12 when he and Karina Iglesias polled the lowest amount of America’s votes but unfortunately, there were no saves this week. Garrett got the boot just moments after giving his dad an on air birthday shout out.
The news was much better for Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Both coaches move on to the top 10 performance round with all three members of their teams.
The “The Voice” season four top 10 are:
Team Usher: Josiah Hawley, Michelle Chamuel
Team Adam: Amber Carrington, Sarah Simmons, Judith Hill
Team Shakira: Kris Thomas, Sasha Allen
