The three contestants singing for their Voice lives were Team Alicia‘s Christiana Danielle, who sang a pedestrian “Unchain My Heart“; Team Adam’s Jackie Verna, who did Carrie Underwood‘s “I Told You So“; and Rayshun LaMarr, who brought all the energy to Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.”
After Rayshun’s performance Monday of the obscure “Grant Green,” which charted at No. 156 on iTunes, Rayshun needed to bring it, and his coach made it pretty simple for the audience. Adam asked the audience, “Do you want to be deprived of this?” referring to Rayshun’s electric performance. When they replied, “No!” he asked, “Is it a shame that he’s even in the bottom to begin with?” to which they answered “Yes!” That’s when Adam told the audience, “Then do something about it, OK?”
All this was nothing new for Rayshun, who avoided elimination two weeks ago when he beat out D.R. King, and then last week became only the second person in Voice history to not be on the bottom a week after getting the Instant Save. So when Carson Daly called his name, we shouldn’t have been surprised to see “Nine Lives” Rayshun escape elimination once again.
