Two Louisiana singers have advanced to the top eight in the NBC reality singing competition series “The Voice.”
Lafayette teen MacKenzie Bourg was eliminated earlier in the season.
Scottish-born Terry McDermott, 35, who lives in New Orleans, wowed viewers last week with his rendition of Bryan Adams’ “Summer of ’69.” McDermott, the confirmed rocker in the competition, is on team Blake (Shelton).
Dez Duron, of Shreveport, auditioned for but did not make season 2 of “The Voice,” but it’s a different story this time around.
Duron, a member of team Christina (Aguilera), surprised the judging panel with his powerful take on Cy Grant’s “Feeling Good,” covered recently by artist Michael Bublé.
The eight contestants will perform again at 7 p.m. Monday, and after nationwide voting, two more contestants will be sent home on the results show at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
“The Voice” airs locally on WVLA, Channel 33.1 (cable Channel 3).
