Last 3 safety reveals were served up

Then, Carson, swiftly hit up the stage, again, to read off the last round of safety results from last night's voting. And those lucky artists were revealed to be: Christian Cuevas of Team Alicia, Josh Gallagher of Team Adam and Sundance Head of Team Blake.

That left poor Sa’Rayah and Aaron Gibson with the realization that they would have to do a "sing off" to fight for a "save" from America live Twitter voting.

The sing off started with Sa'Rayah

Sa'Rayah, hit up the stage, first, to sing the song: "Rock Steady.” Then Aaron, of course, followed her up by singing the song: "Lego House." After the final break of the night, Aaron and Sa'Rayah, got to say a few final words, followed by their coaches before Carson delivered the good and bad news that Aaron won the Twitter vote "save," meaning Sa'Rayah would have to hit the road.
