The Voice axed two of its five remaining finalists during Tuesday night's broadcast of the NBC reality singing competition's fourth season.
Sasha Allen from New York, NY, and Amber Carrington from Rockwall, TX, 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.
Sasha was the last member standing on coach Shakira's team.
"I do this for my children. I make all the sacrifices for my family and to make sure that they have a better life than I had -- not that I've had a bad one, but we always want our children to be better. It would just mean the world to me [to win]. It would mean the world to them I'm sure, and with this opportunity, I just want doors to open. I just want doors to open so that I can open doors for my kids," Sasha explained before the results were revealed.
"This has been the experience of a lifetime and I thank you Shakira for getting to know you."
Amber was the remaining artist on coach Adam Levine's team.
"I want to say thank you for being the one button-push that's changed my entire life and I love you. Thank you so much," Amber told Adam.
This week, the two artists who received the fewest votes were forced to go home no matter which coach's team they were on.
The three remaining finalists are Colton Swon and Zach Swon from Muskogee, OK -- a duo who perform as The Swon Brothers for coach Blake Shelton -- Usher's artist Michelle Chamuel from Amherst, MA, and Danielle Bradbery from Cypress, TX, representing "Team Blake."
The Top 3 finalists will now advance to next week's finals performance show.
