The Voice cut two finalists and determined the fifth season's Top 3 finale artists during Tuesday night's live results show on NBC.
James Wolpert from Strasburg, PA, and Cole Vosbury from Shreveport, LA, were eliminated from the reality singing after receiving the least home viewer votes following Monday night's semifinals performance show.
"I would just like to say that I can't imagine -- I never imagined I would have this much support from you [Blake], and I hope that I can make it to the finale and not let you down and not let 'Team Blake' down, the legacy of 'Team Blake,'" Vosbury explained prior to host Carson Daly revealing the night's second round of results.
"I'm so honored to have had this chance to work with you. It's meant the world to me. I know that I'm going to have your guidance for the rest of my life and it just means so much to me. Thank you."
The three artists who will compete in the show's fifth-season finale are Jacquie Lee from Colts Neck, NJ; Tessanne Chin from Kingston, Jamaica; and Will Champlin from Los Angeles, CA.
Lee is on Christina Aguilera's team, while Chin and Champlin are both members of Levine's team. Coach Cee Lo Green's team had been wiped out entirely in prior weeks.
The Voice's final performance show will air on Monday, December 16, and a winner will be crowned the following night.
