Season 24 of The Voice is officially down to its final hours, as the live finale airs on Tuesday (Dec. 19). The first part of the finale aired on NBC on Monday, and features the remaining five contestants battling it out for the title of this season’s champion.
Coach Gwen Stefani is out of the running for winning the crown this season, as Lila Forde (Team Legend), Huntley (Team Niall), Ruby Leigh (Team Reba), Mara Justine (Team Niall) and
Jacquie Roar (Team Reba) have made it all the way to the final episode of the competition, leaving the No Doubt frontwoman without a singer in the finals. The final group gives former One Direction member not one, but two chances at taking home the win.
The remaining five each sang two songs on Monday night to try to turn the odds in their favor: Forde gave her take on bands of yesteryear with renditions on The Band’s “The Weight and The Beatles’ “Across the Universe,” while Mara Justine gave her all in powerhouse covers of Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart” and Adele’s heartbreaking “Turning Tables.”
Roar also delivered solid rendition of throwback tracks “More Than a Feeling” by Boston and “Nights in White Satin” by The Moody Blues, while Huntley went the rock and indie route with renditions of Creed’s “Higher” and Tom Odell’s “Another Love.” Leigh used her final chance to breathe new life into Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds” and the Eagles’ “Desperado.”
The Voice season 24 finale airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on NBC, with coaches Niall Horan, John Legend, Reba McEntire and Gwen Stefani will perform “Let It Snow” ahead of the holidays. Jelly Roll, Tyla, Earth, Wind & Fire, AJR, Keith Urban and season 25 coaches Dan + Shay will also perform during the finale event.
