Season 4 champion Danielle Bradbery returned to The Voice. The Team Blake alum recently released her latest studio album, I Don't Believe We've Met.
Four years ago, Bradbery was in the same position that The Voice: Season 13 Top 10 are currently in. She made past the Blind Auditions and went all the way to the Season 4 finale, where she was declared the winner and earned a Republic Records recording contract. Tonight, two artists' dreams came crashing down as the Season 13 Top 8 finalists were revealed.
Who Advanced To The Top Eight?
Throughout the evening, The Voice host Carson Daly slowly revealed in no particular order which artists advanced into next week's semi-finals. All of the artists charted on the iTunes Top 100 and also four artists made it to the iTunes Top 10. Slowly, Daly revealed that America saved and they are as follows:
1. Team Miley- Brooke Simpson (Charted on the iTunes Top 10)
2. Team Adam- Addison Agen (Charted on the iTunes Top 10)
3. Team Blake- Keisha Renae (Charted on the iTunes Top 10)
4. Team Jennifer-Noah Mac
5. Team Blake- Chloe Kohanski (Charted on the iTunes Top 10)
6. Team Adam- Adam Cunningham (did not sing for the Instant Save)
7. Team Blake-Red Marlow
The Instant Save
For the first time this season, the Bottom 3 artists (Ashland Craft, Davon Fleming, and Shi'Ann Jones) performed for the second-to-last Instant Save of Season 13.
Team Miley's Ashland Craft kicked off the performance with "Tonight I Want to Cry." While there was a fan screaming at an unbearable high pitch level during the performance, Ashland delivered an honest performance that showcased her growth this season.
Meanwhile, Shi-Ann Jones was noted to have butchered Etta James' "At Last." Her vocals and performance were said to be all over the place.
Team Jennifer's Davon Fleming closed out the round by performing Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way." From his first Blind Audition to when he sang Christina Aguilera's "Hurt" last night, Fleming has been one of the show's top consistent singers and he delivered a high octane vocal that would make the Queen of Soul proud.
Later on, it was revealed that America saved Davon Fleming from elimination.
Highlights Of The Evening
Adam Levine gave the show's host, Daly, another kiss on the cheek in the episode. The artists also got to learn a little bit more about their coaches, who talked about when they first experienced success. Fans found it interesting to learn that Miley Cyrus wrote a song about her mother being evil and heard about the moment Jennifer Hudson stepped onto the cruise ship.
Reba McEntire announced that the Season 13 winner would join Alisan Porter, Chris Mann, Matt McAndrew, Mary Sarah, and Matthew Schuler at The Voice: Neon Dreams Las Vegas show. The show also checked in with Season 12 champion Chris Blue, who signed with Republic Records and is managed by his mentor and Season 14 returning coach, Alicia Keys.
Bradbery finally took the stage and performed "Worth It." Her vocal range was observed to have matured since her Season 4 victory and her single was commented to have the potential to be a real contender for several major country music awards in the next year.
Next week, The Voice: Season 13 Top 8 will duke it out to earn a trip to the season finale.
