Judith Hill, the soulful and seeming standout performer, has been eliminated on "The Voice."
The vocalist with a background that includes singing with Michael Jackson, in "This Is It," was eliminated during a shocking double elimination Tuesday.
"What?" Adam Levine mouthed, shocked that viewers chose to send Hill and Sarah Simmons home.
Hill's last performance was a rendition of "#ThatPower," a song she made her own, prompting Levine and some of the other coaches to praise her for taking a chance.
"Thank you so much for the outpouring of affection and support. Some words from me to you. xo J #TeamJudith," Judith wrote on Twitter following the elimination. "I would like to thank all of the fans who voted for me last night and every other night. Your words of encouragement and support always made me smile and steadied me. I couldn't have walked this part of my musical journey without you!! Of course, I was devastated tonight, but I have had great fun on the show and am glad I had the opportunity to show another side to my artistry. For me, being a true artist means taking risks. There is more to come on this musical journey of mine, so I hope you continue with me on this grand adventure!! Hint: @20feetfromStardom :)"
As reported last week, Hill appears in the soon to be released documentary, "Twenty Feet From Stardom."
With a soundtrack to be released via Columbia Records, "Twenty Feet From Stardom" follows a select group of background singers. It opens in theaters June 14.
