'The Voice' artists India Carney and Meghan Linsey take big risks in Top 6 performance show

The Voice artists who take big risks are typically rewarded.
During Monday night's Top 6 performance show that featured each of the remaining artists singing two songs, India Carney from Brooklyn, NY, and Meghan Linsey from New Orleans, LA, took on very challenging songs and/or vocal styling in order to shine.
India's challenging renditions of the songs were praised by the show's coaches for being completely original and surprising -- risks that definitely paid off. She transformed the rap portion of "Glory" into melodic lyrics and Christina couldn't have been any more proud. The coaches agreed India remerged as a frontrunner with these two performances.
Meghan, who represents Blake Shelton on the show, decided to sing the entire first verse of "Amazing Grace" a cappella, which left her absolutely no room to hide.
Meghan's vocals were on point, and the performance was so good that Christina questioned whether Blake's team might win The Voice again. Blake told his artist the whole world stopped to listen to her amazing vocals and "there's a new sheriff on the show." Meghan also sang "Steam Roller Blues" by James Taylor, showing off her power.
Below is a list of the remaining Top 6 artists and what they performed:
- Pharrell Williams' Koryn Hawthorne from Abbeville, LA, with "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M. and "Dream On" by Aerosmith.
- Adam Levine's Joshua Davis from Traverse City, MI, with "Desire" by U2 and "In My Life" by The Beatles.
- Pharrell's Sawyer Fredericks from Fultonville, NY, with "Shine On" by Daisy May Erlewine and "Take Me To The River" by Al Green.
During Tuesday night's The Voice results show, two artists will go home no matter what team they are on. The bottom-three vote-getters will have a chance to sing for the "Instant Save," but only one of them will stay in the competition.
