Cee Lo, whose team was the first to hear the news, said scoring his contestants had been “very difficult.” But he gave Nakia a slight edge with 51 points compared to 49 for Vicci Martinez. Once America’s vote had been added in, however, Vicci was triumphant and moved on to the final round. “I’m having heart palpitations,” she said.
Adam’s contestants, Javier Colon and Casey Weston, were next to take the stage. “I had to play the game a little bit,” Adam said, explaining why he gave Casey just 35 points and Javier 65. “I had to advance him. This is a decision that I made.” The voters agreed – and put Javier through. “Casey, you’re going to be fine,” Adam told her. “I swear to God.”
Blake, who coached Dia Frampton and Xenia to the semi-finals, gave each contestant 50 points. “I love ’em,” he said. “You can’t put a score on that.” Once the votes were counted, their scores were still the closest of the night – 106 to 94 – with a tearful and appreciative Dia pulling slightly ahead.
Finally, Christina said her contestants, Frenchie Davis and Beverly McClellan, were like “apples and oranges,” and so she gave them each 50 points. But America put through Beverly, who said the decision was “crazy.” “She’s going to bring the house down next week,” Christina said.
The final round of The Voice kicks off next Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on NBC.
