Emily Ann Roberts from Karns, Tennessee beat Morgan Frazier from Nashville on Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, singing “I’m That Kind of Girl”.
Roberts advanced to the next round as a result. She’ll appear in the “knockout” rounds next week.
NBC affiliate WBIR reports:
Team coach Blake Shelton said he was “heartbroken” to have to make a choice against the two singers. But he picked Roberts because he said he thought he could do the most for her.
Fellow coach Pharrell Williams quickly claimed Frazier.
Roberts said on Facebook Tuesday night:
WOW I’m so humbled right now that Blake Shelton would keep me on his team!! God is so good and I’m so thankful!! It was an absolute honor to be able to sing with Morgan and I’m so glad that she gets to stay on the show! I know she will do amazing things on Team Pharrell! Thank you to everyone for your kind words and support!! Yall are seriously the best!! I’m sorry if I haven’t gotten back to you but I will try my best! Who’s ready for Knockout Rounds?! #VoiceBattles #TeamBlake #TeamEmilyAnn #TheVoice
