The Voice eliminated Myracle Holloway instead of Shane Q and determined the seventeenth season’s Top 10 artists during Tuesday night’s live results broadcast on NBC.
Myracle, a 44-year-old from Los Angeles, CA, was ousted from The Voice instead of Shane Q, a 29-year-old from Sacramento, CA, who was the other artist in the bottom two based on home viewer votes cast following Monday night’s Top 11 performance show.
Myracle performed on behalf of Gwen Stefani’s team this season on The Voice, while Shane Q will continue to represent Kelly Clarkson’s team going forward on the show.
After the two artists sang a survival song on Tuesday night’s live show, America voted on The Voice official app and NBC.com via the show’s “Instant Save” format to keep Shane Q in the competition.
The nine artists who automatically advanced and will join Shane Q in next week’s live show are Joana Martinez, a 15-year-old from Miami, FL; Will Breman, a 25-year-old from Santa Barbara, CA; Katie Kadan, a 38-year-old from Chicago, IL; Rose Short, a 34-year-old from Killeen, TX; Ricky Duran, a 29-year-old from Austin, TX; Kat Hammock, an 18-year-old from Encinitas, CA; Hello Sunday, a duo comprised of Myla Finks, a 14-year-old from Atlanta, GA, and Chelsea Glover, a 13-year-old from Atlanta, GA; Marybeth Byrd, an 18-year-old from Armorel, AR; and Jake Hoot, a 31-year-old from Cookeville, TN.
The Voice host Carson Daly revealed Jake had been the most-streamed artist on Apple Music in the overnight window following Monday’s performance show.
Both of The Voice coaches Blake Shelton and John Legend’s teams survived the night in their entirety and avoided elimination.
On Tuesday night, Shane Q kicked off the elimination format by singing “Jealous” by Labrinth.
Blake insisted Shane Q is “one of the best singers” The Voice has ever had and it would be a shame for him to go home this early on.
Kelly hoped America would vote for Shane Q, a four-chair turn in the Blind Auditions, because he pulled out all the stops during his vocal performance. Kelly questioned whether Shane Q needed that extra push and fire lit under him in the competition to bring out his remaining potential.
Myracle then took the stage with “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker in the hope of being saved by home viewers.
Gwen gushed about how Myracle is “so calm and creative” in everything she does. Gwen insisted Myracle deserved to stay on the show because she belongs on the stage.
Gwen even later added that she was intimidated to critique Myracle during rehearsals because she’s that talented.
Home viewers then had a short five-minute window to vote for one of the two artists to stay on The Voice.
At the end of the final commercial break, the vote was 53% in Shane Q’s favor, compared to 47% of the votes that had poured in for Myracle.
Before Carson announced the results live, Shane Q told Kelly that he loved her so much and she had given him such great advice.
Shane said he had grown as a person on the show and will keep applying the coaches’ advice to his life so he can become the best version of himself.
And Myracle had a chance to thank Gwen for everything she had instilled in her. Myracle said Gwen helped to pull her out of her shell and reveal new layers of herself. Myracle knew The Voice wasn’t going to be the end of the road for her no matter the outcome.
Kelly also admitted neither Myracle or Shane Q deserved to be in the bottom two and she admired them both as artists.
“This is so undeserving in my eyes. You are the reason why this show exists,” Kelly noted. “You are powerful, soulful, gifted singers — and I’m super bummed.”
Carson revealed the final set of results at the end of the night, and Shane Q was instantly saved, sending Myracle home.
