'The Voice' Top 6 returned to the stage Tuesday night to battle it out for the Top 5 on the most beloved singing reality show on TV today. Just like any 'The Voice' performance night, the evening was jam packed with epic performances with each of the contestants eager to be included in the Top 5.
Country superstar and American Idol alum, Kelly Clarkson, opened the show with her baby bump singing a Christmas song from her new holiday album, "Wrapped in Red." After Clarkson's festive number, the tension on the stage started to rise. All 6 contestants were secretly praying for their name to be called as "safe."
This time Coach Adam Levine led the pack with 3 contestants still intact of which survived 3 eliminations. Up next was Coach Christina Aguilera with 2 and Coach Blake Shelton with 1. The odds are now all in favour with Adam Levine with 3 contestants that could possibly win 'The Voice' Season 5.
While all contestants are deserving of their spot in the Top 5, Team Adam's Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin stole the show on Monday. Even Christina's Jacquie Lee pulled off an astounding performance. This left 2 contestants at the bottom 2 namely James Wolpert of Team Adam and Matthew Schuler of Team Christina.
This of course meant that Cole Vosbury of Team Blake is safe from the elimination.
"I don't care if you've got three or two artists left in this competition," said Blake Shelton, adding, "It only takes one to win. I think Cole has what it takes."
Before the final announcement was made, Team Christina's Jaquie Lee, Matthew Schuler and Adam's Tessanne Chin provided a breather from the intensity of the elimination. The trio delivered a powerful "You've Got the Love" by Florence + The Machine. Another performance was delivered by Blake Shelton with his Season 1's favourite Xenia singing the Christmas classic "Silver Bells."
Vosbury, Wolpert and Champlin delivered a powerful rendition of Extreme's classic "More Than Words" together with the band's original member, Nuno Bettencourt, on guitar. The 3 men harmonized so beautifully that host Carson Daly couldn't help but admit that he enjoyed the performance.
Before the final save announcement was made, the Top 6 performed one last Christmas song for the night, "Joy to the World." The most difficult part of the show had been reached with 2 powerful singers both facing elimination. Each of them had delivered memorable performances throughout the competition.
In the end, Twitter saves James Wolpert while the show bid farewell to Schuler leaving 5 contestants for the semi-finals on Monday, December 9.
