Ashley De La Rosa Eliminated on ‘The Voice,’ Lindsey Pavao + Chris Mann Move on for Team Christina

Ashley De La Rosa

Chris Mann was sent to the semifinals on tonight’s elimination episode (April 17) of ‘The Voice,’ thanks to America’s vote. Christina Aguilera‘s remaining team members Ashley De La Rosa and Lindsey Pavao had to do a Last Chance and perform for the save. Xtina chose to keep Pavao, therefore sending De La Rosa home through a torrent of tears.

De La Rosa sang Lady Gaga‘s ‘You & I’ for the save and it was the perfect song for her, since the tune has that pop rock edge that ADLR favors and knows is her career path. We were shocked she was in the bottom, since every performance she has given has been increasingly strong. Stronger than the week before, in fact. Adam Levine didn’t think it was her best rendition, while Blake Shelton felt that her overall body of work should earn her a spot in the semis. Clearly, Xtina didn’t agree. But it’s her team.

Pavao didn’t fare so well last night, stumbling through her rendition of Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me,’ slowing down the anthem a little too much and too breathily. She sang ‘Please Don’t Go’ in her Florence + the Machine-style vocal. She reminds us a bit of Drew from ‘X Factor.’ Remember her? She was great. Anyway, Pavao, who looks like Kristen Stewart from ‘Twilight,’ has a habit of slowing songs down to make her points. It’s always pretty but it doesn’t give us much in the way of dynamics.

Xtina was left teary-eyed after Pavao sang. Was it because she was emotional at Pavao’s performance or because she was planning on letting her go? Aguilera kept her, so obviously, she was super moved by what Pavao did.

So Mann and Pavao comprise Team Christina’s final two.
