RaeLynn Stays Put on ‘The Voice,’ Team Blake Shelton Loses Naia Kete and Charlotte Sometimes
Seventeen-year-old spitfire RaeLynn gave viewers another reason to watch ‘The Voice‘ with one eye following her every move. After learning she was safe during Tuesday night’s results show, the Team Blake member mouthed the words ‘Oh s–t!’ Fortunately, it wasn’t picked up by NBC’s microphones.
Charlotte Sometimes, Jordis Unga and Naia Kete were no doubt thinking the same thing when they were left as the three lowest vote-getters on Blake Shelton‘s team. Of the three, Unga may have been the only surprise, as her performance of Heart‘s ‘Alone’ on Monday night was solid. The reggae-influenced Kete was memorable, but mellow. Ultimately, that didn’t win her enough fans to stay safe.
The three had a showdown, singing one song for Shelton and the other coaches. Kete chose Beyonce‘s ‘If I Were a Boy,’ injecting plenty of her street style reggae into the song. Sometimes sung ‘Iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls and despite a mid-song emotional breakdown, recovered to close out a wonderful performance.
Unga sang ‘Wild Horses’ by the Rolling Stones. The brilliant performance made her the easy choice for all four coaches, and Shelton kept her on his team to join RaeLynn, Erin Willett, and Jermaine Paul.
“Ha I guess y’all saw that I was shocked lol! Love yall so much! Thank you for everything! I’m so so so happy!” RaeLynn said on her Twitter page after the show. Next week she’ll rest easy, as only Team Adam and Team Cee Lo members will be competing.
