Team Blake has officially lost its first member on The Voice Season 22's Live Shows.

Despite Rowan Grace starting out strong in the competition with a Three-Chair Turn Blind Audition and Blake Shelton stealing her from wife Gwen Stefani in the Knockouts, the 17-year-old's Top 10 performance wasn't quite enough to move her forward.

Grace chose to cover Billie Eilish's "i love you" for November 28's Live Show, but following the Overnight Vote, the South Dakota native found herself in the bottom three alongside Team Gwen's Kiqué and Team Legend's Kim Cruse. To win the fans' Instant Save, the teen chose to to put her own spin on Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide."

"I don't like to say that I stole you; I feel more like I adopted you from Team Gwen," Shelton said following her performance. "Everybody's going home from this show in two weeks either way. You've gotten a chance to prove yourself to America, you've gotten a huge fanbase. Music is your future. I hope you continue on for the next two weeks, but you're on the right path. I'm so happy for you. It's only just beginning for you."

After it was revealed that Kim Cruse earned enough votes to compete in next week's Top 8, Kiqué and Grace were eliminated. But fans shouldn't worry, because Grace left a sweet message on her Instagram Stories and on her TikTok.

"Reading all your messages right now, and I feel so loved," she said on Instagram. "I can't believe my life, and I just love you all so much. Your support has kept me going throughout all of this, and I'm so grateful for you guys."

Watch The Voice on NBC Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock.
