Coach Blake Shelton, an Oklahoma native, and wife Miranda Lambert opened the show with an emotional rendition of the song “Over You,” in honor of those affected by the disaster. (Watch the performance below.)
This season’s top 10 then shrunk down to eight, with viewers votes determining which two singers were sent home.
Danielle Bradbery (Team Blake) and Judith Hill (Team Adam) were the first ones to be declared safe. They were soon joined by Michelle Chamuel (Team Usher) and Sasha Allen (Team Shakira).
Then, Sarah Simmons (Team Adam) was deemed safe, followed by Holly Tucker (Team Blake), Amber Carrington (Team Adam) and the Swon Brothers (Team Blake).
That meant that Josiah Hawley (Team Usher) and Kris Thomas (Team Shakira) had been eliminated.
With their exits, newcomer “Voice” coaches Shakira and Usher only have one singer apiece left in the competition, while veterans Levine and Shelton have three each.
The remaining eight singers will return to the stage next week for another round of performances.
