The Voice eliminated two Top 6 artists during Tuesday night's broadcast of the NBC reality singing competition's third season.
Amanda Brown, a 27-year-old singer from Bronx, NY, and Melanie Martinez, a 17-year-old singer from Baldwin, NY, were ousted from the competition during last night's live one-hour results show after The Voice host Carson Daly revealed they had received the least number of home viewer votes following Monday night's live performance show.
Martinez and Brown were the two remaining members of coach Adam Levine's team.
"I'm just so thankful for this opportunity. I never expected to get this far, and this is beyond what I've ever dreamed. I'm just happy I got to express who I am as an artist and really touch people's hearts, because that was the ultimate goal. And I love all of you who have supported me this far. I'm just so grateful for all of you. I love you!" Martinez said following her ouster.
Levine and fellow coach Christina Aguilera's teams are now completely wiped out and they're officially out of the running to have one of their artists crowned The Voice.
Cee Lo Green's team is currently comprised of Trevin Hunte, an 18-year-old singer from Queens, NY, and Nicholas David, a 31-year-old singer from Egan, MN.
Coach Blake Shelton's team now consists of Terry McDermott, a 35-year-old singer from Aberdeen, Scotland, and Cassadee Pope, a 22-year-old singer from Los Angeles, CA, who will move through to the next live performance show.
