On Tuesday night’s episode of The Voice, the top 10 performers were revealed. Following a performance from season 10 winner Alisan Porter, it was announced that Team Alicia’s Stephanie Rice and Team Adam’s Mark Isaiah were in the bottom two. While Stephanie showed off her uniquely raspy vocals (again) with a powerful rendition of “Issues” by Julia Michaels, America decided to save Mark for the third consecutive week after he sang “Seven Years Old” by Lukas Graham. The night also saw Alicia and her team performing “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin and Gwen joining her team on Coldplay’s “Fix You.”

Another big bomb that was dropped on Tuesday nights episode was Alicia Keys revealing that she’s taking a break from The Voice to focus on making a new album. “I can’t wait for you to hear new music, and so that’s one of the reasons why I won’t be able to come back next season,” she tells Entertainment Tonight. “But I love writing. It’s just the most beautiful, exciting things, and every time I get better. That’s the blessing and magic of writing.” Keys’ co-star Blake Shelton, however, is skeptical of her exit. “I know she’s not going anywhere,” he jokes. “It’s all just a media thing, a ploy. She’ll be back next year and the year after that. They are going to wait and do some, you know, Carson [Daly] is going to be in the Orange Room at the Today show and be like, ‘Oh, what? This just in! Wow!'”
