Ian Flanigan successfully secured a slot on The Voice finale with a cover of Travis Tritt’s 1991 chart-topper, “Anymore.”

The Team Blake standout was one of five contestants who performed for a chance to secure an instant save to immediately move on to the finale.

Flanigan’s “Anymore” performance was one of his best this season and followed Monday night’s cover of Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel.” Earlier this season, Flanigan performed covers of artists such as Luke Combs and Bob Dylan.

Coach Blake Shelton admitted that he was a little surprised to see him vying for the instant save for the finale, but shared that he believed America would vote him through.

“I gotta say that part of me is surprised to see you in this position, but part of me is not. You and Jim [Ranger] all season have been kind one-upping each time you perform,” Shelton said. “I feel strongly believe that America loves you and you’re gonna be in the finale.

Shelton went on to compliment Flanigan’s “once in a lifetime voice” and begged America to vote for him.

Prior to learning his fate, Flanigan shared his gratitude for Shelton, telling him, “Blake, I love you man. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.”

Ian Flanigan will advance to next week’s finale alongside fellow Team Blake contestant Jim Ranger.

The Voice returns on Monday, December 14 at 8/7c on NBC.
