All four coaches on NBC’s “The Voice” performed, and one contestant was sent home during the Top 11 results show on Nov. 28.

Five-time winning coach Blake Shelton took his turn onstage after learning that two of his mentees, Chloe Kohanski and Red Marlow, were safe to continue on in the competition. He teamed with rival coach Jennifer Hudson for an unlikely duet of his newest hit song, “I’ll Name The Dogs,” from his 11th studio album, “Texoma Shore.”

While onstage, Blake donned a dark, long-sleeved, button-down shirt and jeans, and held onto his guitar. He leaned into the microphone and sang the first verse of his love song, while his duet partner waited in the shadows amid dancing flames.

When the chorus hit, Jennifer, who shimmered in a glittery jumpsuit, walked over to Blake and added some soulful harmony parts to the tune. Both singers kept the fans engaged with their undeniable chemistry, charm and dance moves on the catchy country hit.

Later on in the show, Blake found out that his last contestant, Keisha Renee, was also voted through to the Top 10, which means all three of his finalists still remain in the competition! As for Team Miley’s Janice Freeman, she wasn’t so lucky, as she found herself in the bottom two, and lost on the “instant save” to Adam Cunningham.

And, while Blake doesn’t have to worry about getting fans votes as a coach on “The Voice,” he does have to rely on the fans in this year’s Rare Country Awards. Blake has earned three nominations, including Fan Moment of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Grand Ole Opry Moment of the Year. It’s up to you to decide the winners. Vote now through Dec. 13 at Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville. Voting gives you a chance to enter to win a trip to be there in person!
