With the live shows of The Voice Season 14 now well underway, it's becoming increasingly easier to tell who is circling the drain.
With most of the performers turning in solid performances on Monday night, it left a few stragglers who would likely be on the chopping block during Tuesday night's installment.
Per usual, the results show was stuffed with filler, but at least we got to hear Kelly Clarkson sing! The talented performer joined her team for a rendition of "Don't Take the Money" which was not that great.
It sounded like they were all singing it from inside a tin can, but there was no mention of whether there were issues with the performance on the technical side.
We also got performances from Maroon 5 and the Rise cast. Rise is the new NBC drama that's trying so hard to be Glee it hurts.

That left D.R. King and Rayshun LaMarr on the chopping block, and both artists got one last chance to impress the world.
D.R. King (Team Kelly) - “Papa Was a Rolling Stone”
Like Monday night, D.R. turned in a performance that you would expect from someone at the start of the competition.
Simply put, it was all over the place. It had shaky vocals, and it was difficult to imagine D.R. finding a way to bring himself back from the brink with this one.
Rayshun LaMarr (Team Adam) - “I Can’t Stand the Rain”
Rayshun went with a slower song, and it was a return to form for him. The vocals were off the charts, and it made it very clear who would be making it through to the Top 11.
As expected, Rayshun was saved, while D.R. King was sent packing. This highlights a bigger issue for The Voice: Why do the powers that be allow some of the weaker contestants to get far?
We're not going to name names, but a lot of better vocalists have been sent home and D.R. has skated through.
In any case, we're down to 11 contestants, and the eliminations will get more substantial because there are only a handful of episodes left this season.
What did you think of the elimination?
Did the right person go home?
