Blake Shelton Performs ‘The Heart of Rock & Roll’ With Team Blake on ‘The Voice’ [Watch]

Blake Shelton took the stage with his team members on Tuesday night (Nov. 22) to perform a classic rock track from Huey Lewis and the News on The Voice.

Shelton and his remaining team members performed “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” which Lewis and company took to No. 6 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 when it was released as the third single from the group’s landmark album, Sports, in 1984.

Shelton joined Sundance Head, Austin Allsup and Courtney Harrell for a jaunty, somewhat loose version of the fun, up-tempo track, with Shelton kicking things off and his teammates joining in as the song progressed. They even recreated the saxophone solos from the original track in a version of the song that remained true to the original spirit of the track.

It was a good night for Team Blake, as all of Shelton’s remaining team moved on to the Top 10 finals for this season.

It wasn’t such a great night for Miley Cyrus and her team. Two of her team members, Darby Walker and Aaron Gibson, wound up in the bottom two and were forced to square off against one another to sing for their place in the Top 10. Despite two strong performances, only one artist could remain using America’s Instant Save, and ultimately Gibson remained, while Walker was eliminated from the competition.

The remaining Top 10 will vie for a spot in the Top 9 by performing again on Nov. 28. The Voice airs every Monday and Tuesday on NBC.
