Melanie Martinez’s journey on The Voice has come to an end…
During Tuesday night’s double elimination on the live results show, the quirky 17-year-old Latina singer was sent packing after failing to garner enough votes to reach the final four on NBC’s hit reality singing competition.
Martinez’s elimination, along with her fellow Team Adam member, Amanda Brown leaves only two coaches to vie for the winning title, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green.
“I’m just happy I got to express who I am as an artist and touch people’s hearts,” said Martinez of transforming top hits into her own while on the show. “That was the ultimate goal.”
But before bidding adieu to the show, Martinez teamed up with Team Cee Lo’s Nicholas David to perform an impressive cover of Fiona Apple‘s “Criminal” per the unsolicited song suggestions that Christina Aguilera gave Martinez after her performance on Monday night.
The contestants still left in the competition in clude:
Terry McDermott (Team Blake)
Trevin Hunte (Team Cee Lo)
Cassadee Pope (Team Blake)
Nicholas David (Team Cee Lo)
With Martinez’s exit, no Latino artists are left standing in the competition.
