Critical Issues In Guidelines
Keisha Renee and Davon Fleming land in the bottom two and go home on "The Voice." However, things were still looking good for Noah, one of the most creative and interesting hopefuls of the season, as it seemed likely that Adam and Red would split the country vote — plus Noah was performing in the final (read: most advantageous) spot. Red and Adam’s song choices (Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight” and Travis Tritt’s “Here’s a Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares,” respectively) were shuffling, midtempo throwaways, but Noah went for broke with Harry Styles’s epic Bowie-esque ballad “Sign of the Times,” managing to pull off the tricky vocal even with his low range. With the already-safe Chloe representing for Blake Shelton, Addison for Adam Levine, and Brooke for Miley Cyrus (who’d been shut down of the finale the last time she was on “The Voice”), Jennifer Hudson, Noah’s coach and a much-hyped winner of “The Voice U.K.,” was campaigning hard. “We need people in the industry on shows like this, who sing with a heart like that, who have a passion like that. And Noah can create his own lane and become his own star, which I already feel like you have. Please, people, come on! Support Noah!” A shockingly close race for the fourth spot in the Season 13 "Voice" finale. Coming back from the commercial break, Noah had 36 percent of the vote, trailing just 1 percent behind Red’s lead — the closest Instant Save vote I can remember in this series’ history. Perhaps if Noah had actually tweeted #VoiceSaveNoah on his own behalf — contestants’ own tweets, which get retweeted by fans and the show’s official account, usually contribute significantly to the voting totals — he may have slipped into first place. Maybe Noah just decided he didn’t want to move to Las Vegas with a legal guardian and join the cast of “Neon Dreams.” Whatever the reason for Noah’s tweet fail, he ended up going home.
