Who made it to ‘The Voice’ 2022 Top 5?

Team Blake Shelton and Team John Legend dominated the semi-finalist group heading into the episode with three artists each. Meanwhile, Team Gwen Stefani and Team Camila Cabello each had one teammate left. These were the Top 8 team standings:

  • Team Blake: Bodie, Bryce Leatherwood, Brayden Lape
  • Team Legend: Kim Cruse, Omar Jose Cardona, Parijita Bastola
  • Team Gwen: Justin Aaron
  • Team Camila: Morgan Myles

Host Carson Daly revealed the overnight voting results in no particular order. America saved Bryce, Morgan, Bodie, and Brayden. That meant Kim, Omar, Parijita, and Justin had to compete in the Wildcard Instant Save for the final spot.

Who went home on ‘The Voice’ tonight?

Parijita kicked off the Instant Save performances with Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love.” John called the cover “gorgeous,” adding that Parijita is able to “rise to every occasion” and show great poise.

Next, Kim Cruse took to the stage with a soulful rendition of “All By Myself” by Celine Dion. John said she was “incredible and so powerful” and showed courage in her second week of Instant Saves.

Justin Aaron went up next with Travis Greene’s “Made a Way,” putting total power into every note. Gwen said she could see how deeply invested Justin was in the song, and she had trouble finding the right words to describe how talented he is.

Finally, Omar closed out the Instant Save performances by singing Lady Gaga’s “You and I,” ending the song with a belted note. John was “stunned” to see Omar in the bottom four, but he added that Omar was “the voice.”

And with that, the voting window opened. America saved Omar, and Kim, Parijita, and Justin went home.
