After singing for their competitive lives, the fabulous four of Wendy Moten, Girl Named Tom, Paris Winningham and Hailey Mia were this week catapulted into the finals.
That left just one slot open. And four contestants.
With everything on the line, Team Blake’s Lana Scott, Team Legend’s Joshua Vacanti, Team Ariana’s Jim and Sasha Allen, and Team Legend’s Jershika Maple showed their best for the Instant Save, performing live on the biggest of stages.
Scott delivered “Things a Man Oughta Know” by Lainey Wilson, Vacanti hit Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” the Allens performed Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl,” and Maple went with “Break Every Chain” by Tasha Cobbs.
America voted, and only one would progress to the finale.
After a sweaty-palms moment, Maple’s name was called. The 24-year-old who learned her craft in the churches of Louisiana is part of the fabulous five who advance to the title round next week. Who will be season 21 champion?
