With all the tongue wagging over new “it” couple Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, it might be easy to forget there is a singing competition taking place on “The Voice.”
There were no flirty innuendoes or longing glances during Tuesday night’s live broadcast — just the serious business of sending one more contestant back to their day job.
The evening included performances from Team Pharrell (“Just A Cloud Away”) and Team Blake (“Lean On Me”). But the main attraction was host Carson Daly’s dramatic revelation of which hopefuls earned enough of America’s votes to move on to the next round.
By the end of the hour, it came down to an instant "Voice Save" came down to Mark Hood (Team Pharrell) and Korin Bukowski (Team Gwen) who each received the lowest number of viewer votes.
Mark — an aspiring actor who has appeared on “Chicago Fire” and “Sirens” — received props from the studio audience for his upbeat rendition of the Stevie Wonder classic “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).”
"You bared your spirit for the whole world to see,” his coach praised.
But it was Korin that won the hashtag war on Twitter and survived to sing another day with her cover of Norah Jones’ signature hit, “Don’t Know Why.”
"That was my favorite performance you've ever done,” Stefani lauded.
Korin will join the other 10 remaining finalists on stage for the next live performance show on Monday, Nov. 23.
