It’s one of the biggest night’s on “The Voice” when nearly half of the singers will be eliminated.

On Monday night, 17 singers took the stage for the first live performances of the season.

The show began with the announcement that classically trained opera singer Ryan Gallagher has inexplicitly left the show.  Rumours continue to float around social media and while Gallagher himself has yet to give an explanation, he did say that he did not drop out.

Host Carson Daly announced that the top four vote getting singers from each group will move on to the top nine; the coaches will each choose one singer, and the instant save will choose the final singer.

In the first results of the night, Team Kelly takes the stage.  The first singer moving on to the top nine via fan vote is Desz.
