Team Blake

Cam Anthony

During the top 17 round of “The Voice,” Blake Shelton told 19-year-old Cam Anthony that he believed he could be “the first superstar that we launch off this show.”

Going into the top nine round, where Anthony performed Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” Shelton’s enthusiasm for the singer remained high.

“This guy’s a superstar,” Shelton said. “I really think he’s going to go on to do something huge in the music industry.”

At 19, Anthony already has an impressive performing history. He went on “The Ellen Show,” after his rendition of Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” went viral, and he also performed at the White House Easter Egg Roll during Barack Obama’s presidency, the Deseret News reported.

Now, the singer from Philadelphia is headed to “The Voice” finale.

Jordan Matthew Young

At 35, Jordan Matthew Young is the oldest singer remaining in “The Voice” competition. He’s been touring and performing for a decade, but his career took a hit during the pandemic. When he auditioned for “The Voice,” Young was making a living fixing guitars and building houses with his dad.

Although he’s primarily a blues/rock singer, Young, whose father is a big country music fan, returned to those roots and performed John Conlee’s “Rose Colored Glasses” for the top nine round.

Kelly Clarkson praised the performance and compared Young to country singer Travis Tritt.

“Way to show up when you need it to count,” she said.

Young, who is originally from Roosevelt, Utah, and is now based in Austin, Texas, won the Instant Save Tuesday night to move on to the show’s top five.

Team Nick

Rachel Mac

Rachel Mac is the youngest singer in “The Voice” competition, and a singer Nick Jonas has called a “dark horse” because her audition was only a one-chair turn.

“You’re growing exponentially every time we work together, and that’s why I think all of us love this job so much,” Jonas previously told the 16-year-old singer during the Knockout round.

For her top nine performance, Mac, who has struggled with depression, chose to show a more vulnerable side and perform Christina Perri’s “Human.”

“i just want everyone to know that if you are going through that, you’re not the only one,” she said during a clip that aired before her performance. “You will get through it, because I got through it.”

The singer from Michigan drew high praise from the coaches and secured her place in the top five.

“That was such a revelatory performance,” John Legend said. “You gave us the full range of emotion today, and it was really beautiful and really heartfelt. Thank you so much for that.”

Team Legend

Victor Solomon

For the top nine round, Victor Solomon channeled his passion for gospel music by performing MercyMe’s “I Can Only Imagine.”

The performance had the coaches on their feet — and feeling nervous — as it was a strong moment for Team Legend.

“You brought me right back to church,” said Jonas, whose father was a pastor. “I’m a little nervous right now. ... You’ve blown me away every step of the way in this competition.”

Solomon has been a frontrunner from the start of the competition, when he made the bold choice to perform Legend’s “Glory” during the blind audition round — a decision that ultimately paid off.

Team Kelly

Kenzie Wheeler

During her time on “The Voice,” Kelly Clarkson has worked with two country singers who ended up winning the competition. Now, she could lead a third country singer to victory.

From the start, Kenzie Wheeler, a 23-year-old country singer from Florida, had the attention of all four “Voice” coaches. Clarkson used her one and only block of the round to keep Wheeler from going on Team Blake, which tends to secure the most country singers.

Wheeler has remained on Team Kelly for the entire season. His rendition of the George Jones classic “He Stopped Loving Her Today” during the most recent round of the competition secured his place in the top five.

“You’re not like just one of my favorite vocalists I’ve ever worked with, you’re literally one of my favorite country singers that’s ever existed,” Clarkson said.
