"The Voice" top nine announced Tuesday features three metro Atlantans: Toneisha Harris, Megan Danielle and Micah Iverson.
Next week, the nine get cut down to four, followed by the two-day finale the week after.
Toneisha is on Blake Shelton's team, and Blake picked her. Both Megan and Micah are on Team Kelly Clarkson, with Micah getting America's vote and Megan as Kelly's pick.
Arei Moon, on Team Nick Jonas' stacked team, unfortunately didn't make the cut.
The other six who got through were:
- Todd Tilghman (Team Blake) as an America save
- CammWess (Team Legend) as an America save
- Zan Fiskum (Team Legend) as a Legend save
- Thunderstorm Artis (Team Nick) as an America save
- Allegra Miles (Team Nick) as a Nick save
- Joanna Serenko (Team Blake) as a wildcard instant save.
Who could win this? Based on polls, CammWess, Thunderstorm Artis, Toneisha, Allega, Micah and Todd all have a shot, though Todd appears to be the early favorite.
“The Voice” has a pretty complicated set of rules.
Here’s how it worked:
There were 17 singers left at the start of the night.
The top vote-getter from each coach’s team was automatically in. In this case, all four were men.
The coaches then picked a second person to save, and they each chose a woman.
That totals eight people.
The four remaining top vote getters from each team sang live, and viewers chose one more person: Joanna from Blake's team over Mandi Castillo (Team Legend), Michael Williams (Team Nick) and Cedrice (Team Kelly).
Cedrice would have been my pick.
Here are each of their “Instant Save” performances, and seriously, all four did a good job:
