YORK COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — A man from York County who was representing the Midstate in this season of “The Voice” was eliminated from the show on Tuesday night’s episode.
Eric Torres, who also goes by Devix, is a 28-year-old York County native. Devix chose Camilla Cabello to be his coach in the blind audition portion of the show, in which contestants sing to a panel of four judges. The judges face away from the contestant, solely focusing on the contestant’s voice. If they like what they hear, they turn their chair around to express interest in adding the contestant to their team.
Three out of the four judges turned their chairs around for Devix. John Legend, Gwen Stefani, and Camilla Cabello turned their chairs for Devix, but Devix ended up picking Cabello to be his coach.
According to LNP/LancasterOnline, Cabello made some promising comments about Devix after he joined her team. “His voice is just unreal, and he produces,” Cabello said on the episode. “He is a creative force.”
Devix was sent home last night along with three other artists. In order to stay in the competition, each artist had to sing an “Instant Save” performance. He sang the song, “When We Were Young.”
According to a recap of the episode, Camila was shocked that Devix wasn’t voted through to the next round.
“Listen, I don’t know what America was thinking when they didn’t vote you through yesterday, but America, you can redeem yourself right now. … you have one of the best voices on the entire season,” Camila told Devix after his performance.
Kique, a singer from team Gwen, was saved during the Instant Save performances. Eric Who, Devix, and Alyssa Witrado were voted off the show.
