Jennifer Hudson Debuts New Single As ‘The Voice' Season 13 Final 4 Are Revealed
On Monday, the eight remaining artists took to the Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage to perform for fans, but only 4 moved on to next week's finale.
Who Advances To The Season 13 Finale?
Throughout the evening, Voice host Carson Daly revealed the first three artists that advanced to the finale. Five of the artists (Chloe Kohanski, Noah Mac, Red Marlow, Addison Agen, and Brooke Simpson) each placed in the iTunes 100 Charts. But throughout the evening, Daly revealed that America advanced:
- Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake)
- Addison Agen (Team Adam)
- Brooke Simpson (Team Miley)
The Instant Save
The final Instant Save transported the NBC singing competition to The Hunger Games universe. Team Adam's Adam Cunningham, Team Jennifer's Noah Mac, and Team Blake's Red Marlow were up for the last Instant Save. Just like last week, America saved one artist as the two lowest vote-getters would be eliminated.
Red Marlow opened up the round with "Dixie Land Delight." While Marlow is a good storyteller and there is a lane for him. However, Blake already had an artist in the finale.
Cunningham was already familiar being in the Instant Save round as he spent several weeks in the competition fighting for survival. Cunningham sang with conviction and proved that like Marlow he has a bright future in country music.
Mac tackled Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times" and after he sang the first note, every girl in the audience went crazy. At moments, viewers thought they were watching a young David Bowie perform on The Voice.
It was one of the closest races in show history, but Team Blake's Red Marlow won the final spot. Sadly, Mac's elimination meant that Team Jennifer will have no representation in the finale.
Highlights Of The Evening
The Voice host Carson Daly revealed that Blake Shelton had an artist make it to the finale 12 out of 13 seasons and Hudson revealed that both Fleming and Mac were lovely people. Cyrus also revealed that she will work with Simpson in the future.
Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors, and Bebe Rexha performed their massive collaboration: "Home." The trio delivered a fiery performance that incorporated powerful raps from Machine Gun Kelly, superb vocals from X Ambassadors lead vocalist Sam Harris, and a sultry vocal from Bebe Rexha.
Hudson debuted a beautiful new single: "Burnin' Down." She sat at a grand piano as the two-time Grammy-winning actress delivered a powerful vocal performance that took the Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage audience to church. Hudson delivered the rest of the performance A cappella and gave the audience a master class on performing.
The show also revealed that Season 12 champion Chris Blue was hard at work in creating a new single. Blue is expected to perform the new single during the Season 13 finale, although, he was not the only Voice alum in the building. Past alums Chris Mann, Michael Sanchez, Alisan Porter, Mary Sarah, Matthew Schuler, and Matt McAndrew teased The Voice's first Las Vegas residency show with a powerful cover of "It's Time."
The Voice Season 13 finalists will perform one final time for America's votes on Monday, Dec. 18.
