It's been a great first season of The Voice for both Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys, but with just four spots for singers to make it to the season 11 finals, would both new coaches be represented in the finale?
After an hourlong episode packed with plenty of filler—performances from One Republic, former Team Pharrell finalist Hannah Huston and coach Blake Shelton, plus a set tour of NBC's Hairspray Live from The Voice UK coach (and American Idol vet) Jennifer Hudson—and a few minutes of actual results, we found out which singers would stay and which would be sent home in a brutal four-person elimination.
The first three singers saved were Team Adam's Billy Gilman, Team Blake's Sundance Head and Team Alicia's Wé McDonald, and the first two eliminated were Team Miley's Aaron Gibson and Team Adam's Brendan Fletcher.
That left Team Alicia's Christian Cuevas, Team Miley's Ali Caldwell and Team Adam's Josh Gallagher to sing for their lives, with Christian choosing the classic "I Can't Make You Love Me," Ali picking "Sledgehammer" (the Rihanna one, not Fifth Harmony or Peter Gabriel), and Josh singing "I Drive Your Truck."
After the final commercial break, Carson Daly revealed that the final singer moving forward in the competition would be Gallagher—meaning Miley won't have any singers competing in next week's finale.
Earlier in the episode, Miley said she's thoroughly enjoyed her first season on the show. "This kind of talent, this level, is one in a bazillion and I have two, so I am so honored and it's more than I could have ever dreamed of for my first season of The Voice," she revealed.
