The Voice coach John Legend lost most of his teammates in the Season 22 semifinals when all three were sent to the wildcard instant save.
The only member of Team Legend to advance in the competition is Omar Jose Cardona.
After the show aired, Legend took to Instagram to talk about what happened to his team.
“I love coaching on @nbcthevoice because I have the privilege of working with some really special artists who inspire me so much,” Legend wrote. “It brings me so much joy developing their performances with them each week and seeing them rise to the moment on stage. It was disappointing and mysterious to see all 3 Team Legend artists and @jaaron_88 fighting for a remaining spot in the finals.”
Legend Called Instant Save Artists ‘Brilliant’
During the live results episode aired on Tuesday 6th December 2022, four artists were automatically saved by receiving the most votes from fans. These artists were Blake Shelton’s team members Brayden Lape, Bryce Leatherwood and Bodie, and Camila Cabello’s artist Morgan Myles.
The artists who had to compete in the Instant Save were Legend’s Kim Cruse, Parijita Bastola and Omar Jose Cardona, as well as Gwen Stefani’s only remaining team member, Justin Aaron.
“All 4 have been brilliant this season and have amazing VOICES,” Legend wrote on Instagram. “@kimcruseofficial and @parijitab I feel so lucky to have had the chance to be a part of your journey this season. They are both so special and have already used this platform to prepare themselves for an even brighter future. I look forward to seeing what you do next.”
For his only remaining contestant, Legend wrote: “@omarjosecardona I really can’t believe what you can do with your voice. You are one of the most gifted singers I have ever met. You are the reason our show exists. Let’s try to win this final. You deserve it!”
Legend was thanked by his team members
Several members of Team Legend have also taken to social media to thank their coach.
After he was voted out Cruse wrote, “Even though my run on the show is over, I couldn’t be happier! Through prayer, my goal of inspiring little girls and women like me was accomplished. I can’t wait to see what God does next! To my trainer. @johnlegend, THANK YOU! You have encouraged, inspired and pushed me to be a better artist in every way! Thank you for every vote, share, comment and follow! Buckle up! We still “cross”.
Cardona wrote: “Top 5! We’re at the finish line here. I may be at the bottom for the next week, but you all make me feel on top of the world! Thanks for the support. Let’s stick together and let nothing tear us apart! Together we are stronger! All the best!”
Fans have been calling out the semifinals and the finalists since the episode aired, and many said the show would reward singers who didn’t do as well as the others just for being on Shelton’s team.
Season 22 of The Voice concludes with a two-part finale on Monday, December 12, 2022 and Tuesday, December 13, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
