Last night, The Voice: Season 10 joined First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden in paying tribute to the US Armed Forces.

Some artists rose to the occasion and impressed the soldiers in the audience. Others needed time in vocal boot camp.

Who made it safely into the Top Nine? Which two artists duked it out for the Instant Save? Read on to find out…

Before we got to the results, DNCE kicked off the night with a medley of “Toothbrush” and “Cake by the Ocean.” I loved how Joe, Cole, and JinJoo made their entrances through the audience when they sang “Toothbrush” and they rocked the house with their summer hit “Cake by the Ocean.”  As the group left the stage, the coaches and Top 10 paid tribute to their moms, wives, and kids. I loved seeing Xtina with her son.

After the package, it was time for Carson to reveal the results. Up first, America voted Team Christina’s Alisan Porter into the Top Nine. The next artists that the county saved were Team Blake’s Adam Wakefield and Team Adam’s Shalyah Fearing. As the artists left the stage, Season Eight champion and Team Pharrell alum Sawyer Fredericks debuted his new single: “4 Pockets.” He reminds me so much of a young Bob Dylan and his son-Jakob. Hopefully, the Dylan men would be able to take young Sawyer under their wings in the future.

As Sawyer left the stage, it was time for the results to continue! Team Pharrell’s Hannah Hutson, Team Blake’s Mary Sarah, Team Christina’s Bryan Bautista, Team Adam’s Laith Al-Saadi and Team Blake’s Paxton Ingram.

This meant that my two least favorite contestants—Team Pharrell’s Daniel Passino and Team Xtina’s Nick Hagelin—were up for the Instant Save.

Up first, Team Christina’s Nick Hagelin sang Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” In all honesty, he may have a future at GQ, but he does not have the ability to have a long-term music career. D Team Pharrell’s Daniel Passino (his second time in the Bottom Two). Daniel Passino tackled Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and if this was his last stand, he went out with a bang! B

While America voted through Nick Passino into the Top Nine, I believe that Daniel still has a bright future, and I hope that Pharrell takes him under his wing.

Next week, The Top Nine Perform!
