(NBC) — It was the Season 21 semifinals Monday and Tuesday night live on “The Voice” on NBC.
Chesapeake’s own Lana Scott, a country singer on Team Blake Shelton, was among the semifinal competitors this week, but unfortunately, she was eliminated with two other contestants Tuesday night based on votes from viewers.
The remaining artists will vie for five spots in next week’s finale.
Team Kelly’s 14-year-old Hailey Mia sang Monday night for a spot in next week’s finale. She moved forward to the final round.
“It’s just getting more real and real every single day,” said Mia. “And rehearsals, like everything is just so intense.”
Team Kelly’s sibling trio “Girl Named Tom” is also still in the chase after being chosen to move to the finale.
“This has been such a magical ride already,” said Caleb Liechty of “Girl Named Tom.”
And Team Ariana’s father-son duo Jim and Sasha Allen hoped to stick around ahead of Monday’s performance, but were eliminated along with Scott Tuesday night.
“The reason is not to win ‘The Voice,’ but just to win another week with these amazing people,” said the elder Allen.
Joshua Vacanti was one of two for John Legend in the semifinals, but he was also eliminated with Scott and Jim and Sasha Allen.
“It would be a really magical and special way to close out this wonderful, beautiful chapter,” said Vacanti.
Legend’s other artist, Jershika Maple, hoped for an instant save and got her wish Tuesday night.
“Hard work pays off and just stay consistent,” said Maple. “And you never know what will come after that.”
Wendy Moten is continuing on as well, despite a broken elbow and fractured wrist.
“My hands are like weights,” said Moten “And, but it’s not enough to distract me from just performing.”
And no distraction for Paris Winningham; his eye’s on the prize.
“Do I have the trophy yet?” said Winningham. “I don’t have the trophy yet. Ain’t nothing to celebrate.”
In addition to their solo performance Monday, all the artists sang a ’90s era duet with one of their fellow semifinalists.
“The Voice” aired Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
