Watch 17-Year-Old Parijita Bastola's Powerful Last Performance on The Voice
The teen was eliminated in a surprising Live Results Show.
Starting with her Four-Chair Turn Blind Audition at the beginning of the season, Parijita Bastola has been a standout on The Voice. But during December 6's surprising Live Results Show, the 17-year-old's time on the series officially came to an end.
Week after week, the teen has remained a front-runner. But after her Top 8 rendition of Sia's "Unstoppable," the teen found herself in the Bottom 4 alongside fellow powerhouses Kim Cruse and Omar Jose Cardona (Team Legend) and Team Gwen's Justin Aaron.
For her Last-Chance performance, Bastola performed a flawless version of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" in an attempt to make it to the Finale.
"That was gorgeous, beautiful," Legend told her. "I mean, this is such a difficult situation to be in, to be singing against so many amazing Artists for one spot on this show. And that kind of pressure could overwhelm a lot of people, but what I've seen from you time and time again is that you rise to every occasion and you sing with such beauty and such poise, and I've just been so proud to watch you continue to excel on this show."
Right before results were revealed, the Maryland native offered words of thanks to her Coach.
"I have grown so much from my Blind Audition; I made the best decision picking you as my Coach," she told Legend. "You know what's best for me, you know what was good for me, my song selection. Everything you had your best interest in my heart... I am forever changed."
In the end, Cardona won the Instant Save, making him the only Team Legend member left in the competition. Bastola, Cruse and Aaron were sent home.
"You are such a wonderful young woman," Legend told Bastola. "I've spent time with you and your mother, and I just know your parents must be so proud of you because you represent your family and you represent your culture so well."
