The Voice season 20 live updates – top 9 perform for Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, John Legend and Nick Jonas

SEASON 20 of The Voice is inching to its end as the remaining artists will compete in a five-way instant save for a chance to earn the fifth and final spot in the finale.

The Voice will air two episodes this week, the first one will take place on May 17, and the second episode will be on May 18, which will determine who will be in the finale.

The remaining nine contestants have one more round before making it to the finale.

After nearly half of the singers were eliminated, each coach is left with two singers - except for Kelly Clarkson, who has three with Gihanna Zoë, Wheeler and Corey Ward.

The remaining nine singers will compete in the Live Top 9 Performances on May 17, as the results will be revealed during the May 18 episode.

Fans can catch the final remaining episodes of The Voice by tuning into NBC on May 17 and May 18 at 8pm.

The top vote-getter from each team will automatically earn a spot to compete in the finale, while the remaining artists will compete in a five-way instant save for a chance to earn the fifth and final spot in the finale.

Team Blake Shelton's contestant Cam Anthony scored a spot in the next round after receiving America's vote, while the country singer used his save on Jordan Matthew Young.

Meanwhile, only two of Nick Jonas' contestants- Rachel Mac and Dana Monique - secured their spots in the competition.

John Legend's team member Victor Solomon received the most overnight votes, while the coach used his save on Pia Renee.

Viewers also voted for Team Clarkson's contestant Kenzie Wheeler to advance to the next round, while the singer used her save on Gihanna Zoë.

  • FAN SCARE

    Following the interview, many fans of the show took to social media to express their distress at the thought of Blake leaving the show.

    One person wrote: "The Voice is unquestionably the best competition show. When Adam Levine left the show, I mourned; but if Blake Shelton leaves, I'll stop watching. HE is The Voice!"

    A second one commented: "Blake Shelton is the best thing that ever happen on The Voice, wouldn't watch it if he leaves."

    And a third one shared: "Please don't leave The Voice, Blake! It would be boring without you! You make the show!"

  • BYE BYE BLAKE?

    Voice fans believe Blake Shelton dropped a hint he will quit the show after 20 seasons in a new interview.

    Blake, 44, appeared on the Today Show recently, where he was Hoda Kotb's co-host for the day.

    After first greeting each other, they began to talk about what kind of life he expects to have once he ties the knot with Gwen, 51.

    "Do you picture yourself in ten years, you and Gwen, just out in Oklahoma – not jetting all over the place, do you see yourself living a much simpler life way way down the road?" Hoda asked him.

    "I hope that's not too far down the road. Ten years sounds like way too long to me. I'd like to see that sooner rather than later," he told her.

    "I mean, we both pretty much have taken it to the limit as far as our careers go and touring and now the television thing, it's been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things that hopefully at some point we'll get to live some life.

    "I think we're both ready for that honestly."
