The Voice revealed its top five contestants Tuesday night.

Team Kelly's Kenzie Wheeler, Team Legend's Victor Solomon, Team Nick's Rachel Mac, and Team Blake's Cam Anthony immediately moved on to next week's two-night finale following Monday night's top nine performances and America's overnight vote.

The five remaining contestants – Pia Renee, Corey Ward, Dana Monique, Jordan Matthew Young and Gihanna Zoë – then battled it out for The Voice's live instant save.

Following Jordan's performance, Coach Blake Shelton begged and pleaded for America to save his artist. "America, please, keep this guy in the competition. We need this man. I need this man in my life for one more week," said Shelton. Viewers listened because, ultimately, Jordan became the fifth finalist to move onto the season finale, which had social media divided.

While it's obvious the majority loved Jordan the most, hence his win, there were a lot of viewers who were unhappy with the result. Some went as far as to claim that Blake was "rigging" the show. One person tweeted: "Nah there has to be some Blake Shelton bias here because how??? Jordan is talented but really?? It’s not adding up."

However, next week's finale will have at least one person in attendance who may not be rooting for Blake – the cowboy's former nemesis and Voice coach Adam Levine, who will be returning to his old stomping grounds with his band Maroon 5 for a performance of "Beautiful Mistakes."
