The Voice eliminated Max Boyle and Cali Wilson and determined the seventeenth season's Top 11 artists during Tuesday night's live results broadcast on NBC.
Max, a 23-year-old from Toledo, OH, and Cali, a 28-year-old from Salem, IA, were ousted from The Voice instead of Joana Martinez, a 15-year-old from Miami, FL, who was the other artist in the bottom three based on home viewer votes cast following Monday night's Top 13 performance show.
After all three artists sang a survival song on Tuesday night's live show, America voted onThe Voice official app and NBC.com via the show's "Instant Save" format to keep Joana in the competition.
The 10 artists who automatically advanced and will join Joana in next week's live show are Will Breman, a 25-year-old from Santa Barbara, CA; Katie Kadan, a 38-year-old from Chicago, IL; Rose Short, a 34-year-old from Killeen, TX; Ricky Duran, a 29-year-old from Austin, TX; Myracle Holloway, a 44-year-old from Los Angeles, CA; Kat Hammock, an 18-year-old from Encinitas, CA; Shane Q, a 29-year-old from Sacramento, CA; Hello Sunday, a duo comprised of Myla Finks, a 14-year-old from Atlanta, GA, and Chelsea Glover, a 13-year-old from Atlanta, GA; Marybeth Byrd, an 18-year-old from Armorel, AR; and Jake Hoot, a 31-year-old from Cookeville, TN.
The Voice host Carson Daly revealed Jake had been the most-streamed artist on Apple Music after Monday night's performance show.
On Tuesday night, Cali kicked off the elimination format by singing "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac.
John Legend -- whose entire team survived the night and avoided the bottom three -- said Cali had shown a lot of different sides to herself in her performances throughout the season but he loved her "fire" side the most. John thought it was a great song choice and "really well done."
Blake had "no doubt" moving Cali along through the competition was the right decision to make because he said she deserved to be on the show.
Before Carson announced the results live, Cali said being mentored by Blake was "a dream" and her confidence level "went sky-high" just because of him. Blake in turn promised that Cali was born to make music.
Max told Kelly that she's "so cool" and being on The Voice had been an amazing experience, but Kelly said he could sing with her at her Las Vegas residency any time if he gets sent home.
And Joana thanked Gwen for bringing her out of her shell, but Gwen felt like she was the one who should be asking for Joana's autograph.
Carson revealed the final set of results at the end of the night, and Joana was instantly saved, sending Cali and Max home.
