Tanner Gomes time on The Voice has officially come to an end.
The country contestant was eliminated from the singing competition during Tuesday evening’s results show and things got a bit emotional when he had to say goodbye to his coach Kelly Clarkson.
Gomes elimination came after his performance of Keith Anderson’s 2004 hit, “Pickin’ Wildflowers.” With hopes to secure an instant save and ultimately, a spot in the Top 9, Gomes gave the performance his all and worked the stage with every ounce of energy he had.
“He brings the honky-tonk y’all,” Clarkson gushed.
The superstar went on to plead with viewers to vote.
“I’m so sad if you don’t make it through, you’re so good,” she said, adding, “I love you so much, America please vote him through.”
Prior to learning his fate, a tearful Gomes told Clarkson, “I love you. I love hearing that every time you call me your favorite cowboy…I just love you, I just thank you so much for this opportunity.”
Clarkson promised that their time working together was not over.
“Even if you leave, I cannot wait to work with you after,” she said.
Gomes did not secure the instant win and was sent home.
Tanner Gomes first joined Team Kelly after performing Dustin Lynch’s “Cowboys and Angels” during his blind audition. He went on to cover songs from artists such as Tim McGraw and Luke Combs before departing The Voice.
