The Voice host Carson Daly revealed the results of the home viewer votes cast following Monday night's live performance show -- which had featured the season's Top 5 artists taking the stage -- and India Carney from Brooklyn, NY, was eliminated.
Koryn Hawthorne from Abbeville, LA, who is on Pharrell Williams' team, was the other member of the bottom-two votegetters, however, America chose to keep her on the show via the show's "Instant Save" format. Just seconds before the announcement was made, Koryn was shown having about a five percent edge on India in the voting totals.
When initially declared the bottom two, India and Koryn were each afforded the chance to perform one last time for home viewers. They were hoping to convince America why they deserved to join the others in next week's live show.
India performed "Dark Side" by Kelly Clarkson. Christina said she did her heart proud and always pushes herself to the limit time and time again. Christina noted she's a fan of India's and then told America the voting becomes extremely close, so they needed to support her girl -- who has so much focus, passion and heart. Christina later added that India reminds her of why she started making music in the first place.
Koryn sang "If I Were A Boy" by Beyonce. Pharrell explained Koryn always pulls an energy from the room and it's amazing what she does. He went on to say that Koryn was singing for anyone with a dream. Koryn shook her head enthusiastically in agreeance with her coach's sentiment.
The Top 4 finalists still remaining and fighting for "The Voice" title are Koryn, Joshua Davis, Meghan Linsey and Sawyer Fredericks.
