Join us as we live blog The Voice season 15 Live Playoffs Results. Team Adam Levine, Team Blake Shelton, Team Kelly Clarkson and Team Jennifer Hudson will cut their teams in half tonight. The top 2 vote getters from each team automatically advance to the finals. Each coach will choose one singer to round out their teams.
Then, the two singers from Kelsea Ballerini’s The Comeback Stage digital series will sing for the Instant Save to complete the Top 13.
Additionally, the Backstreet Boys and Kane Brown are set to perform.
The episode begins with some blah blah blah coach talk. Really looking forward to dumb contestant questions! NOT.
Time for RESULTS. Team Blake takes center stage. Michael thanks Blake for believing in him. America saved…Kirk Jay! America also saved Chris Kroeze. WOW. See. Surprises already. Blake says all four contestants deserve to be here. BUT. Blake chooses Dave Fenley . Damn I would have saved Michael Lee instead of Dave. He totally chose the wrong song.
Carson takes a moment to remember season 2 contestant Beverly MccLellan who recently lost her battle with cancer. Rest in peace Beverly.
Next up is country singer Kane Brown performing “Lose It.” He’s pretty hot on the country charts these days. I don’t get it quite frankly.
Team Adam is next. Reagan says Adam’s coaching has meant the world to her. America saved…DeAndre Nico and America also saved…Reagan Strange. Adam chooses “the person that I need to see more of” or some sh*t. And whaddaya know. Adam saves freakin TYKE JAMES. Did I call that or WHAT YES I DID. Not that I’m happy about that at ALL. Shoulda saved Kameron, Adam. Grr.
Now, a little promo for the online series, The Comeback Stage. Single mom Ayanna Joni and Lynnea Moore, whose mom is in prison, will compete for the last spot in the Top 13. Oh. They are going to sing now.
Ayanna Joni – No Tears Left to Cry – Oh. She’s doing something different with her hair. And she’s rapping. The results are mixed here. She’s not playing it safe, that’s for sure. Just like her blind audition–she’s nervous. Pitch problems plague this performance. Jennifer thinks she has the showmanship needed to be a star.
Lynnea Moore – Boo’d Up – She’s nervous too. But out of the two performances, I’d pick Lynnea. Damn, though. One of these gals will make it to the lives AND pick the team to compete on. Considering tonight’s cuts, it seems a little unfair. Kelly was excited that she made the Top 2. Kelly was sorry that she didn’t turn for her.
TIME TO VOTE. #VoiceSaveAyanna #VoiceSaveLynnea. Ya got 5 minutes. VOTE ONCE. Retweet all you want.
WHOA. Lynnea is running away with this thing. 87% vs Ayanna’s 13%. When the chyron was pulled off the screen, the vote was 85% vs 15%.
THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME. Heh. America picked…Lynnea Moore. And Lynnea chooses Team Kelly as her coach. Who WOULDN’T choose Team Kelly, amiright?

Team Jennifer is next. MaKenzie was thrilled to have shoes thrown at her. America saved…MacKenzie Thomas. America also saved…Kennedy Holmes. And Jennifer saves SandyRedd. The correct choice.
Next, it’s Backstreet Boys who perform their new single “Chances.” Caron mentions they’ve been together 25 years and refers to them as “old friends.” They first met on Caron’s old MTV show, Total Request Live. They just announced a world tour.
Team Kelly takes the stage. Zaxai says they’ve all grown very close. America saved…Chevel Shepherd. America also saved…Sarah Grace. No time for Kelly to
fake stretch it out. And of course she chooses Kymberli Joye.
Sad goodbyes: Michael Lee, Funsho, Kameron Marlowe, Franc West, Zaxai. A bunch of my favs are no more. Sniff. I would have prefered Michael instead of Chris Croeze, and Kameron instead of FREAKING Tyke James. The others were edged out legitimately (quiet voice I would have preferred Franc or Colton over whitney impersonator MaKenzie Thoms sorry/notsorry). The Playoff round ALWAYS results in tough losses.
Additionally, although Comeback Stage winner Lynnea Moore has potential, outside of fans who followed the Comeback Stage series online, she’s an unknown. Unless she KILLS IT next week, Lynnea will be an early casualty.
