'The Voice' pays tribute to Christina Grimmie as Top 11 is revealed: Watch


One artist was eliminated on The Voice on Tuesday night (April 24). After Monday night's voting and iTunes tallies, the bottom two artists had to sing live for the instant save. Coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine performed with their teams, and Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani will perform next week.

Carson Daly started the night by bringing back the top 12 artists and announcing the first of the results. Viewers voted to save Team Gwen's Brennley Brown, Team Adam's Jesse Larson and Team Blake's Lauren Duski. Brown's advancement in particular was not a surprise, since her song from last night broke into the top 10 on iTunes.

Daly also announced the creation of the Christina Grimmie Foundation, which will help victims of gun violence and breast cancer. A former contestant on The Voice, Grimmie was fatally shot at a concert last year. Levine, her former coach, dedicated his team's performance of "Hey Jude" to Grimmie, and her family was in the audience.

The remaining nine artists were brought back to the stage. Viewers voted to save Team Alicia's Vanessa Ferguson and Team Blake's Aliyah Moulden, the youngest artist left in the competition.

Performing "Good Life" from The Fate of the Furious, G-Eazy took the stage next.

The next two artists to advance to the top 11 were Team Adam's Lilli Passero and Team Alicia's Chris Blue.

Team Blake gave a country performance of "Crippled Inside" by John Lennon, and then it was time for Daly to announce the last two artists who were automatically voted through. Viewers voted to save Team Gwen's Hunter Plake and Team Blake's TSoul, leaving Shelton's team intact. America also saved Team Alicia's Stephanie Rice, leaving Alicia Keys' team intact as well.

That left Team Gwen's Troy Ramey and Team Adam's Mark Isaiah to sing for the instant save. Ramey went first, singing "Drift Away." It was a smooth and soulful performance, but artists should always go with something more upbeat and exciting when singing for the instant save. This felt more like a casual jam session than a performance, and Ramey's nerves seemed to be getting to him a little bit. Shelton said he has a classic sounding voice and also encouraged Ramey to show more of his personality on the show if he advances to next week. "You're so easy with the way you sing," Stefani said, describing him as natural and intuitive.

Isaiah followed with a performance of "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars. And even though it also was on the slower side, it was a strong example of the kind of music that Isaiah sings very well. Given Isaiah's easy charm, it's surprising he hasn't connected with viewers more. Levine thought it was a perfect song choice. "You're getting better every day," Levine said, urging viewers to vote him through so they can see his full potential.

Live votes were cast on Twitter, and Daly announced the results. Isaiah secured the instant save and advanced to the top 11, and Ramey went home.

The top 11 will sing live next week on The Voice. What did you think of tonight's results?
