‘The Voice’ Pits Two Iowa Contestants Against Each Other
Last week we had two Iowa contestants on 'The Voice,' but now only one remains.
Tuesday's episode of NBC's 'The Voice' saw coach Blake Shelton pairing up Cali Wilson and EllieMae, the only two contestants with Iowa ties this season. 28-year-old Cali Wilson is a native of Salem, Iowa who currently lives in Nashville. She sang Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" for her blind audition.
21-year-old EllieMae is not a native of Iowa, she's actually from Jerome, Idaho. But, she is currently a senior at Iowa State University in Ames. She sang "Merry Go Round" by Kacey Musgraves for her blind audition.
Both members of Team Blake, the two ladies were pitted against each other in the Battles on Tuesday night. If you blinked, you may have missed the match-up. The show only aired a 20-second clip of the performance, which was a duet to Kelsea Ballerini's "Miss Me More." That short clip revealed that it was the end of the road for EllieMae, with Cali moving on to the Knockouts. Here's the clip from Tuesday night's episode:
We're sad that EllieMae was sent home, but we're happy that Iowa is still being well-represented this season!
