‘The Voice’ Recap: Holly Tucker Sent Home
Holly Tucker from Blake Shelton’s team on The Voice was eliminated on Tuesday’s episode.
The Voice opened with a quick recap of Monday night’s performances and a live performance by season three winner Cassadee Pope.
Throughout the show, the contestants performed three songs together. Shakira’s Sasha Allen and Usher’s Michelle Chamuel performed “Open Your Heart” by Madonna. The next performance was by Shelton’s contestants The Swon Brothers and Tucker, singing “Leave the Pieces” by The Wreckers. Finally, Shelton’s Danielle Bradbery and Adam Levine’s Amber Carrington performed “Eternal Flame” by The Bangles.
The Voice also played a video clip that showed contestants Bradbery, Chamuel, Tucker, and the Swon Brothers traveling to Oklahoma City, Okla., to perform in Shelton’s “Healing in the Heartland” with their coaches after the devastating tornadoes that struck May 20. The event raised over $6 million.
The saved contestants on Tuesday’s episode were, in order — Chamuel, Allen, Bradbery, Carrington and the Swon Brothers.
Tucker, a full-time student at Baylor University and saxophone player, was known for her powerful voice that got her into the top six. Monday night’s performance was arguably not her best — and she was the only contestant sent home.
Tucker performed two songs on Monday’s episode – “My Wish,” by Rascal Flatts, and “When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues,” by Martina McBride.
Shelton’s team has been spared elimination for three weeks — Tucker is the first of his top three to be eliminated. Other coaches Levine, Shakira, and Usher each have just one contestant left on the show. Bradbery and The Swon Brothers are the only remaining contestants on Shelton’s team.
