For the first time in “The Voice” history, two artists who were eliminated back in the blind auditions will now sing for America’s vote in the live playoffs. And it’s all thanks to the Comeback Stage twist. The fifth coach of Season 15, Kelsea Ballerini, has spent the past few weeks mentoring six artists who didn’t turn any chairs in the blinds. After cutting four of those contenders, Kelsea’s two remaining finalists will now perform live next week on “The Voice.” So who they are? Scroll down for spoilers on the Comeback Stage or watch NBC’s video above.
During last week’s battles, Kelsea paired up Ayanna Joni vs. Madison Cain, Wyatt Rivers vs. Sam Robbins, and Lynnea Moorer vs. Ele Ivory. Kelsea ended up naming Ayanna, Wyatt and Lynnea as the winners of their battles, setting the stage for an exciting three-person knockout round.
In this week’s knockouts, Ayanna performed “I Put a Spell on You,” Wyatt took on “How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You” and Lynnea blew the roof off of “In My Blood.” After a brief deliberation, Kelsea chose to advance both Ayanna and Lynnea to the live playoffs, thereby sending home Wyatt.
“You’re going to the live shows!” Kelsea excitedly told Ayanna and Lynnea after she made her big decision. “I feel like I’m gonna walk in and be like, ‘Look what I have that you guys messed up on. Here it is again. You’re welcome, goodbye.'”
To recap, here are the 26 finalists set to perform during the live shows of “The Voice” Season 15:
TEAM KELSEA BALLERINI
TEAM ADAM LEVINE
TEAM KELLY CLARKSON
TEAM JENNIFER HUDSON
TEAM BLAKE SHELTON
