These 3 Team Reba Artists Are Going to The Voice Season 24 Live Shows
Team Reba officially has its final three artists for the Season 24 live shows.
We are one team closer to The Voice Season 24 Live Shows, and the finale fans have been waiting all season to see. On Monday night, two Coaches set out to pick their final three artists, and set up a showdown for the ages in the Lives with the best of the best from Season 24.
After Niall Horan narrowed down his choices last week, it was new Coach Reba McEntire's turn to pick her final three artists, cementing the finalists on her very first Voice team. Reba's spent all season building a stellar roster of artists who soar in country music and beyond, so let's take a closer look at who she chose to make it to the Lives.
Reba McEntire Picks the Three Artists Representing Team Reba in The Voice's Live Shows
Team Reba entered the Playoffs one singer down, as Knockout winner Tom Nitti was forced to depart the show for "personal reasons" ahead of the next round of the competition. That meant McEntire had only four vocalists to start her Playoffs –– Jacquie Roar, Noah Spencer, Ruby Leigh, and Jordan Rainer –– but she wouldn't choose from just that quartet. Thanks to the addition of the Super Save feature this season, McEntire was able to call back standout soul singer Ms. Monet for one last shot at Voice glory, bringing her Playoff team up to five.
"They're all so different," McEntire said before the Playoffs started. "They're all so good in their own lane. It's gonna be tough. I'll be glad when this is over with so I can take a breath."
After all five artists brought their all to the Playoff performances, it was up to McEntire to make the hard choice to send two home. Before she did, though, she took a moment to reflect on the journey of building her first Voice team.
"Terrible," McEntire said when host Carson Daly asked how she was feeling before eliminations. "Happy, grateful that I've gotten to meet y'all, listen to you, coach you any way that I've hopefully helped you. You certainly helped me. This is my first team on The Voice. Y'all are wonderful."
Then it was time to make the choices. First up for her Live team, McEntire went with Rainer, who wowed the Coaches and the audiences with a Blind Audition cover of Reba's own hit "Fancy."
"Jordan deserves to be on the live show," McEntire said. "From the very first moment she stepped on the live stage singing 'Fancy,' I knew. America is going to fall in love with Jordan, as we all have."
For her second choice, McEntire went with Roar, who the Coach chose because of her ability to come alive and bring everything she has to a live performance.
"Jacquie came on tonight," McEntire said. "What excites me about Jacquie in the Live Shows is she's a show dog, and she's gonna be a contender."
And finally for Team Reba, McEntire went with Leigh, who's been winning Coaches over since her yodel-packed Blind Audition.
"There's nobody like Ruby in the competition," McEntire said. "She's got that real sweet emotional cry in her voice that... it rips my heart. She's bringing something that I've never seen on The Voice before."
So Jordan Rainer, Jacquie Roar, and Ruby Leigh –– three country music-inspired women with a dream –– will represent the Queen of Country in the final 12 Artists heading to the Season 24 Live Shows, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
"They're all three country but they're all three different," McEntire said of her team. "You could put those three, package them on a concert tour, they'd each blow the audience away."
