By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/21/2018
The Voice eliminated Tyke James and Sandyredd and determined the fifteenth season's Top 11 artists during Tuesday night's live results broadcast on NBC.
Tyke, a 17-year-old from Laie, HI, and Sandyredd, a 36-year-old from Chicago, IL, were ousted from the The Voice instead of the "Comeback Stage" artist this season, Lynnea Moorer, an 18-year-old from Monterey, CA, 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 last night, America tweeted via the show's "Instant Save" format to keep Lynnea in the competition.
On Tuesday night, Sandyredd kicked off the elimination format by singing "Believer" by Imagine Dragons for her survival song.
The audience roared with applause, so much so Jennifer couldn't even hear herself speak. Jennifer called her "a star" and said she lived in the moment and represented Chicago and motherhood well.
Jennifer added it's not about how far she makes it in this competition but rather what she does with this opportunity once she leaves the show.
Tyke then followed that up with a performance of "Home" by Michael Buble.
Adam noted Tyke was "super sad" to be in the bottom because he really believed he deserved to be on the show. Adam called him "special" and said he's an "incredible singer" and it's way too early for him to go home.
"If you want to keep this show interesting, then you've got to keep Tyke James on it. I promise you this right now," Adam told home viewers.
And for her last chance song, Lynnea took the stage with "If I Ain't Got You" by Alicia Keys.
Kelly explained Lynnea had the deck stacked against her because she came into the competition late and wasn't able to develop a fanbase, but the coach insisted she'd be singing something amazing next week if America chose to keep her.

Home viewers then had a short five-minute window to vote for Sandyredd, Tyke or Lynnea to stay onThe Voice via Twitter.
At the end of the final commercial break, the vote was 50% in Lynnea's favor, compared to 39% of the votes that had poured in for Tyke and 11% of the votes that went to Sandyredd.
Before The Voice host Carson Daly announced the results, Sandyredd thanked Jennifer for her support, Tyke said he was grateful for Adam's friendship and belief in him, and Lynnea told Kelly she really appreciated her advice and giving her a second opportunity.
Adam also admitted he was absolutely shocked to see Tyke in the bottom three considering he had landed in the Top 3 on the iTunes chart following Monday night's performance show.
Carson revealed the final set of results at the end of the night, and Lynnea was instantly saved, sending Sandyredd and Tyke home.
