Mom and daughter trio Worth The Wait performed a Martina McBride song on NBC’s The Voice with hopes to advance to the Top 9.
The trio, who previously performed songs originally recorded by The Judds and Tanya Tucker, took the stage to sing McBride’s emotional ballad, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” They did their best and poured all of their emotions into the performance, however, their fate was left in the hands of America’s votes.
“You try to, after years of doing the show, you try to have some strategy going into things like this and I have a gut feeling that you guys are not only the lead vote getters but you’re my lead vote getters of the final four and now we have to just carry this thing through,” their coach, Blake Shelton, said. “That was a great performance. I’m really proud of you.”
Worth The Wait was up against Bailey Rae, Tanner Gomes and Payge Turner in the Wildcard Instant Save round. Ultimately, Bailey Rae came out on top.
Before leaving the show, Worth The Wait addressed “Uncle Blake,” telling him, “We are filled with gratitude for just this whole experience. We didn’t’ know how far we would go. It was a blessing to our family.”
