At the top of tonight’s (Nov. 20 ) elimination episode of ‘The Voice,’ it was revealed that Blake Shelton‘s team member Cassadee Pope was No. 1 on iTunes, knocking YouTube sensation Psy and his ubiquitous ‘Gangnam Style’ viral hit out of the top slot. Wow! Her stunning, hearfelt rendition of ‘Over You,’ originally sung by Shelton’s wife Miranda Lambert and co-written by the couple about his later brother, struck a chord with viewers, that’s for sure.

Host Carson Daly asked what Lambert thought of Pope’s delivery of the song. “By the time I got home, I’ll be honest, I had a few drinks,” he said. “Miranda and I spoke on the phone three times, and she said this also about Terry [McDermott], that we can’t believe how good they did.” As for ‘Over You,’ he admitted, “We couldn’t believe that was that song.”

That all translates to Cassadee Pope done good. It was a no brainer when Pope’s name was announced as one of the contestants moving on to the Top 8.

Scottish singer Terry McDermott found out that he was safe at the bottom of the show, which didn’t shock us, since he is so talented and is really showing ‘The Voice’ what a true rock ‘n’ roller is all about.

So, Shelton has two contestants on his team as we move towards another live round next week. Congrats to Team Blake for remaining in tact. However, it’s only going to get harder from here, because eventually, either Pope or McDermott will have to go home.

Tune in next week!
