Shakira and Usher‘s teams just keep getting smaller. Last night (May 21) on The Voice, the top 10 artists faced elimination and for the second week in a row, the two acts eliminated came from the new coaches’ teams.
Getting the boot from Shakira’s team was r&b crooner Kris Thomas. Thomas, who sang mostly ballads during his time on the show, tried his hand at singing a more upbeat, current song by performing Miguel‘s smash hit “Adorn.” While the coaches praised his performance, America clearly didn’t love it. His departure leaves Shakira with only one act left in the competition: powerhouse singer Sasha Allen.
Former model Josiah Hawley was the latest victim cut from Team Usher. Hawley had a solid night during the top 10 performance show, winning cheers for his performance of Coldplay’s “Clocks.” Like Shaki, Usher’s team is now down to one member: singer Michelle Chamuel.
Veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton both keep their teams of three as season four heads into the top 8 performances. The “The Voice” season four top 8 are:
Team Usher: Michelle Chamuel
Team Adam: Amber Carrington, Sarah Simmons, Judith Hill
Team Shakira: Sasha Allen
