Miley Cyrus openly sobbed as her team member Janice Freeman was voted off The Voice on Tuesday night.
The 25-year-old pop star had become extremely attached to the talented 32-year-old contestant and didn’t conceal her emotions.
‘If anybody deserves to stick around in this competition it is you. You are a fighter, you are a warrior, you are a role model and, more than any of that, you are The Voice, I am in complete shock, I love you so much,’ she cried.
‘I’m not trying to cry for you guys to vote for Janice,’ she added, addressing the viewers at home.
‘This isn’t what this is about…I feel like I’ve gotten one of my closest friends…I am a shameless supporter of you…I believe in heaven because of people like you,’ she yelled.
Janice, who has been a strong contender from the get-go, was also in tears.
‘Miley, you have been the best thing that has ever happened to me, in my entire life, and I appreciate you. You will have a friend for life and anything that you need from me, I am here, so thank you for what you have given me,’ cried Janice, who is a cancer survivor from Compton, California.
Earlier in the show Miley performed the Shania Twain hit Man! I Feel Like a Woman!, with Janice and the rest of her team, who were all clad in leopard print.
‘I have been so honored to perform with you on that stage tonight, you are the biggest star,’ sobbed Miley as Janice left.
After a public vote Janice was left in the bottom two with country singer Adam Cunningham from Adam Levine’s team.
Both Janice and Adam were required to ‘sing for survival’ before a final public vote.
Adam, a 38-year-old Tennessean, sang Lonestar by Amazed before Janice did Chandelier by Sia.
Adam Levine, who is openly a huge Janice fan, failed to crack a smile when his own singer won the place in the top ten.
‘Talent isn’t really something that can be judged on a talent competition, it can’t really be judged at all,’ said the Maroon 5 frontman.
Ten other artists made it through to next week.
The first to be saved was Blake Shelton’s 23-year-old Tennessean Chloe Kohanski, who sang Total Eclipse Of The Heart on Monday’s episode.
