Despite a passionate performance of Pink's "Who Knew" Wednesday night, Heights resident De'Borah Garner did not make it into the next live round of NBC's The Voice.
After two days of performances from 20 contestants, The Voice unveiled its top 12 Thursday. Each team would go from five to three members, with the viewer votes selecting two members and the team coaches selecting the third.
Dez Duron and Sylvia Yacoub were the Team Christina members with the most votes and Aguilera decided to push Adriana Louise into the next round, putting Garner and teammate Devyn DeLoera out of the competition.
Garner was all smiles as she heard the results, congratulating her teammates and embracing Aguilera, who had words of encouragement for her whole team.
"Don't let anyone or anyone's opinion ever define who you are," she said. "You guys are so special and so talented. If I would have allowed people to effect me, I wouldn't be where I am today."
Garner initially turned heads on The Voice with her rendition of Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" during the blind auditions. During that same episode of the show, the singer decided to come out and tell the world she's gay.
Garner has said her ultimate goal is to make it to the Grammys, a dream she's had since she was seven years old.
