'The Voice' reveals its top 6 - and Michelle Chamuel is one of them
After Chamuel performed a duet with fellow contestant Judith Hill on "Sweet Nothing" by Calvin Harris, "Voice" host Carson Daly announced that fan voting had moved Chamuel on to the next round. She had turned in another strong performance Monday with her rendition of Bruno Mars' "Grenade".
Following the announcement, she got a big hug from her coach, Usher; Chamuel is his last remaining team member. In a brief interview segment later in the show, Chamuel introduced her mother and said of the fan votes, "It's crazy. I'm just very, very grateful. Thank you so much."
Chamuel, a University of Michigan graduate, became familiar to Ann Arbor in recent years as the lead singer for the popular local band Ella Riot / My Dear Disco. She now lives in the Boston area.
After Chamuel, Danielle Bradbery of Blake Shelton's team became the second contestant to move on to the top 6, followed by Sasha Allen of Team Shakira and then the Swon Brothers, from Shelton's team. As the episode closed, Amber Carrington from Adam Levine's team and Holly Tucker from Shelton's were announced to round out the top 6.
That left Hill and Sarah Simmons, both from Levine's team, as the night's eliminations.
The top 6 "Voice" contestants will perform live on NBC next Monday at 8 p.m., with another elimination round next Tuesday.
