The Voice 2016 Results: Who Was Eliminated From The Top 11? (VIDEO)
The Voice 2016 Top 11 finalists performed live last night for your votes. Tonight, we find out which two artists will be at risk for elimination when the Bottom Two are revealed, and the Instant Save goes into effect.
Unlike last week, the iTunes sales were a bit healthier, as Sundance Head scored the first Top 10 single of the live shows with his rendition of “No One” by Alicia Keys, narrowly edging out Billy Gilman, who came in at No. 11 with Adele’s “All I Ask”. However, while the sales were strong for those two country-leaning acts, the news wasn’t so good for some other competitors, as Team Alicia’s Christian Cuevas fell to No. 110, and Team Miley’s Ali Caldwell failed to chart at all! With that said, there isn’t always a 100 percent correlation between the lowest iTunes sales and the Bottom 2, so you never know. We might be in for a surprise tonight. But for now, I’ll be posting the results as they come in, along with videos as soon as they become available. Until then, keep refreshing! And if you missed last night’s show, there’s a link to videos of all Top 11 performances at the end of the article!
THE VOICE 2016: TOP 11 RESULTS
Darby Walker (Team Miley)
Aaron Gibson (Team Miley)
Darby Walker sings “Your Song” by Elton John, and call me crazy, but this is my favorite performance of hers. There’s no overproduction on the track, no ostentatious runs or anything on the vocal. Just a sweet song sung beautifully by a girl who knows how. I’d be surprised if this wasn’t enough to save her, but you never know. Aaron could Ryan Sill himself out of the Bottom 2 every week from here on out, for all we know.
Aaron Gibson sings “Budapest” by George Ezra, and it’s LEAGUES better than his sing-off performance last week. With that said, I prefer Darby, honestly. I get that he has fans, but it’d be a shame if we just kept losing women every week in favor of a guy America just doesn’t seem to be connecting with in any real way. Then again, if Aaron is saved by the Instant Save, then some slice of America must be into him. Of course, with the Instant Save, the East Coast is privileged over different time zones that might forget to check Twitter to find out whom to vote to save. This could end up being close.
Aaron Gibson earns the Instant Save!
Darby Walker is eliminated from The Voice 2016!
It’s a shame to see Darby leave, especially since I’m not sure Aaron is going to ever connect with America to the point where he manages to avoid the Bottom 2. While you could maybe make the same argument about Darby, this really felt like a one-off week for her, and I think she could have potentially bounced back from this. Of course, I’m 100% open to Aaron proving me wrong. He was one of my early picks to go all the way after his Blind Audition, and while I’m not sure the finale is in the cards for him at this point, I do think he can make a really good showing in the weeks to come.
